Beginning his working life in the aviation industry and trained by the BBC, Tony Gosling is a British land rights activist, historian & investigative radio journalist. Over the last 20 years he has been exposing the secret power of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and élite Bilderberg Conferences where the dark forces of corporations, media, banks and royalty conspire to accumulate wealth and power through extortion and war. Tony has spent much of his life too advocating solutions which heal the wealth divide, such as free housing for all and a press which reflects the concerns of ordinary people rather than attempting to lead opinion, sensationalise or dumb-down.

    Tony , the subsequent links and videos were brought to mind by “former” Merchant Venturer
    former mayor of Bristol George Ferguson. And if memory serves me he spoke about being a supporter of a museum about slavery and civil liberties. ” I thought the story of Olaudah Equiano, or Gustavus Vassa, the African” who went from slavery to British citizen may be “grist for the mill” or topic for part of one your shows Dialect or the Politics Show. But it’s Ok if you don’t use it . cheers to Tony and Martin. oh yeah one more video
