Trailer  In 2003, Gun was working as a translator of Mandarin at the government intelligence agency, GCHQ, in Cheltenham. She was 27. The country, at the time, was being drummed into war by the Blair government, desperate to achieve the United Nations’ sanction for the imminent American-led invasion of Iraq. In January that year, Katharine Gun was copied into a classified memo sent to GCHQ by a senior figure in the NSA, its US equivalent. The memo was a top-secret request to monitor the private communication of UN delegates for scraps of information, personal or otherwise, that could be used to “give the US an edge” in leveraging support for the invasion. Katharine Gun leaked that memo to the Observer, in the belief that the revelation of the proposed bugging and blackmail tactics might be enough to stop the war.

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.

  1. EK says:

    That lecture about the british Empire and all the intrigue is very interesting.

    Let’s not forget that 25% of Russian GDP (ask anyone here and they’ll say “pfft, more like 50%!”) is being plundered by Putin’s kleptocracy and the oligarchs from Russia are also plundering this country too. Lot of the stolen loot is laundered in good ol’ London. Lotta nice houses in Belgravia ?

    The Soviet economy was the 2nd pargest in the wrorld, Russia is no bigger in GDP than a piddling little racist country like Australia. 140 million v 30 million, poor Russian people. Split 1.4 trillion 140 million ways doesn’t go far. 30 million ways much better per capita.

    Dunno why Trump was leveraging the aid money and then throwing off with disparaging remarks about this country to mitigate the whistle blower claims. Whether he likes it or not, the US Congress regards this country as a stalwart against a preponderous Mother Russia and the funds will be allocated. It’s money well spent, check out or new Navy boats, with stealth capability and high performance. After trials in Odesa they will be integrated into our navy.The next time Russia tries to ram our boats or hassle us in the Azov sea we’ll have something to match them.


    Cheers. btw Tony, great presentation you did on the land of my ancestors Jugoslavia on Dialect. You now join intercpted as the only providers of comprehensive, interesting, decent stories about the former Jugoslavia that I have heard in a decade. >:)
