"In March 1981 The Sunday Times revealed that there were tentative preparations for a military coup d’état in Britain in 1968 at the time of the Wilson Labour government. All threads of the conspiracy led to the high echelons of the armed forces and figures near to the royal family. Ted Grant commented that this plot was an indication of how far the ruling class would go to defend its vested interests in times of crisis and explained what lessons should be drawn for the labour movement."

A coup in Britain… a warning for the future

[Originally published in Militant, No. 547, 11th April 1981. We reproduce here a version subsequently published as a separate pamphlet.]

The Sunday Times (29th March 1981) carried an article which indicated that there were suggested preparations for a military coup d’état in Britain in 1968 at the time of the Wilson government. Allegations of a plot to overthrow the Labour government were seriously investigated by MI5, the secret internal security service, but Wilson himself apparently only found out the full details in 1975. However, Lady Falkender, formerly Marcia Williams, Wilson’s political secretary, told the Sunday Times (29th March 1981) that she and Sir Harold “had a suspicion that something was going on.” They were particularly alarmed when in January—and again in June—1974 the army put a “ring of steel” around London’s Heathrow airport, allegedly directed against an unspecified “terrorist threat”.

“Lady Falkender said that it ‘was horrible—like a Michael Caine movie. Harold was worried about the business when the troops did an anti-terrorist exercise at London airport. He said to me: “Have you thought that they could be used in a different way? They could turn that lot against the government—totally.” It was scary. Like 1984…’ She named the late Earl Mountbatten as a prime mover in the plan, assisted by ‘elements’ in the army and the city. ‘Mountbatten had a map on the wall of his office showing how it could be done. Harold and I used to stand in the State Room at No. 10 and work out where they would put the guns. We reckoned they would site them in the Horse Guards,’ she said.” (Sunday Times, 31st March 1981)

The Sunday Times referred to the memoirs of Hugh Cudlipp, the Deputy Chairman of IPC, who later took over from Cecil King as boss of the Mirror newspaper group. In his book, Walking on the water, Cudlipp tells of King’s discussions with leading politicians and industrialists about the “imminent fall” of Wilson’s government and the possible alternative. In particular, Cudlipp gave some details of a meeting between King, Cudlipp, Sir Soley Zuckerman (the government’s chief scientific adviser), and Lord Mountbatten, at the latter’s London flat on 8th May 1968. “Cecil King,” reported the Sunday Times, “asked Mountbatten to serve at the head of an alternative government once Wilson had been ousted. Cudlipp also described how Lord Zuckerman stormed out of the room crying: ‘This is rank treachery. I’ll have nothing to do with it’.”

Naturally, because of the furore aroused, all the parties to the plot have attempted to deny the facts. Wilson, who would have been asked for an explanation in the labour movement, first kept quiet about it and then later attempted to deny what happened. But Zuckerman let the cat out of the bag when he confirmed that he made the statement attributed to him by Cudlipp. A mere tête-à-tête among friends would not have provoked such an outburst.

Just like Lt.-Col. Tejero’s attempted coup d’etat in Spain on 23rd February 1981, which despite its serious character had aspects of comic opera about it, so the lunatic attitude of these gentlemen in suggesting a coup in Britain, at that time, is an indication of the lengths that the ruling class will be prepared to go to under difficult and serious conditions. The ruling class at the top is split, as last week’s statement by 368 prominent academic economists opposing the government’s monetarist policy shows. There is no agreement as to which way to turn.

On the one hand, Margaret Thatcher correctly points out that all the other policies have been tried out and found wanting. The only difference with hers is that it will have an even more disastrous effect than the policies of the last thirty years. Those policies, based on Keynesian economics, were introduced because the deflationary policies of the kind now being adopted again by Thatcher and Joseph led to the catastrophe of the slump of 1931. Their present policies have now led to a deepening of the slump of 1980-81. They threaten to lead to a catastrophe for British capitalism with unemployment of over 3 million. Deflation and inflation are merely two sides of the same coin. They saw that on the road of capitalism there is no way out for the economy or for the working class. No capitalist policy can solve the crisis of capitalism.

Yet, if in 1968 and again in 1974 there were serious elements of the ruling class already suggesting a criminal conspiracy against a right-wing Labour government, we can imagine what will be the position in the future. In another article Militant (6th March 1981) showed how Airey Neave, the Tory MP assassinated in 1979, had suggested to MI5 and the secret services that they should act to prevent the coming to power of Tony Benn, if he were to replace Callaghan as party leader. This was at a time when the situation was far less serious than it is now.

According to the Sunday Times one Major-General and a number of military men were involved, and as the paper comments, “None was subsequently charged, none of the military men involved in the plot was disciplined.” When Callaghan, who was then the Home Secretary, was asked by reporters, he refused to make any comment on the allegations. This indicates that the allegations are correct. Had a grouping of ordinary working class privates conspired against the government of the day they would have been disciplined, and possibly even sentenced to long terms of imprisonment—whereas these military gentlemen were not even charged!

This shows the situation that could possibly develop in Britain at a time of economic and political crisis. In 1968 the situation was not at all of the serious character that it is at the present time. Yet even against the right-wing Wilson government plots of this character were actually being organised by elements of the military and the City of London. In the plot of Cecil King, it has recently been reported in an article in the Evening Standard, Sir Oswald Mosley, the former fascist leader, was to be included in a government with Mountbatten! Thus the web of the conspiracy spread quite far.

The splitting of the Labour Party by the Council For Social Democracy, now the Social Democratic Party, has been a deliberate plot on the part of capital to try and weaken the Labour Party and prevent it coming to power. This is because the Labour Party membership and that of the trade unions have begun to move towards the left. In 1974 there were articles in The Times which indicated vaguely suggestions of a coup to try and keep the working class in order at the time of the miners’ strike. A whole series of inspired articles appeared in The Times, and an extremely reactionary conservative journalist in the United States, William Buckley, wrote an article suggesting that the military in Britain were preparing for a coup.

Suggestions of this sort evaporated when in The Times one of the capitalist historians pointed out, in effect, what Napoleon had long ago explained: that you can do anything with bayonets except sit on them. The historian wrote about the Kapp putsch, when the military attempted to seize power in Germany in 1920. The reply of the workers was a general strike which paralysed the government. Even the civil servants participated. Nothing moved, there were no communications and the government did not even have a typist or clerk. The army generals were compelled to march out of Berlin and hand power back to the Social Democratic government. This douche of cold water put a stop to the talk of a coup at that particular time.

Nevertheless, on the television General Kitson has been interviewed indicating that it might be necessary for the military to “take over against terrorist plots and conspiracies” which might develop in Britain! This could be the pretext on the part of the military, as it was the pretext for action on the part of the military in Spain. Again, a cold douche of reality was given to this situation when The Times correspondent interviewed some non-commissioned officers, sergeants and corporals, and some of the privates in the army. The soldiers, preserving anonymity, explained that their officers were incapable of organising a dance, never mind a coup d’état. All the work of the army, they explained, was done by the rank and file, especially the non-commissioned officers, the sergeants and corporals.

However, while the reports might seem a question of fantasy and infantile dreams on the part of the military officers in Britain, and of those elements of the City and big business who would like to try and discipline the working class as they have been disciplined in Chile, nevertheless it is necessary for the advanced, active layers in the labour and trade union movement to take such warnings seriously.

World capitalism is entering a new period of crisis unexampled since the 1930s. The economic boom and upswing of the 1950 to 1975 period is now over—a long period of crisis, of short booms and slumps, opens up. The ruling class can no longer afford the luxury of increases in the standards of living of the working class, except for very temporary periods. This will mean an intensification of the class struggle to a level never reached in the history of Britain and of other countries in the West in the past. The same instability which has affected the colonial or ex-colonial countries during the course of the last 30 years—with a whole series of coups, counter-coups, revolutions, and counter-revolutions—now also opens up for the countries of the West. This is shown by what happened in Spain in the recent period.

In the past, the argument has been that while these things happen in other countries, it is impossible in Britain. Yet these revelations of conspiracies and plots on the part of various military generals and big business personalities are an indication that with the deepening crisis of capitalism, the ruling class in desperation could take to this road, if they saw that there was no other way out. The fact that a Conservative member of the shadow Cabinet, Airey Neave, who was very close to Margaret Thatcher, should raise the question of a conspiracy to prevent Tony Benn from becoming prime minister is an indication that Tory politicians would be prepared to take action along these lines.

In 1911 the Tory Party actually supported the treason of Sir Edward Carson, leader of the Ulster Unionists and a former Tory minister, who mustered 100,000 Ulster Volunteers to block the Liberal government’s Irish Home Rule Bill. Under the new historical conditions, the tops of the Tory Party could behave in exactly the same way.

The fact that it was Mountbatten who was involved in this projected conspiracy is not an accident. Mountbatten was very close to the royal family, an uncle in fact of the Queen’s consort, Prince Philip. The ruling class has been very careful to preserve the monarchy’s powers of veto. This was shown when they were used in November 1975 in Australia—through Sir John Kerr, the Governor-General appointed by the Queen—for the dismissal of the Labour government led by Gough Whitlam. In the same way in Britain, the monarchy still formally has the power to select who should be prime minister and the power to dismiss a prime minister and the government. In the event of a royalist plot of the character that has been suggested, the monarchy could be used at a time of desperation on the part of the ruling class exactly as it was used in Australia to dismiss the government there.

What is really revolting is the hypocrisy of the press, and especially of the television and radio. These hypocrites have retailed the statements of the Council for Social Democracy—Shirley Williams, Rodgers, Owen and the others—in attacking the Militant tendency as being “undemocratic”. Yet these gangsters would be quite prepared to turn to the use of force against the working class if that seemed to be the only way to preserve the profits, income, power and privileges of the capitalists.

The one thing that blocks the way for a peaceful transformation of society in Britain is the attitude precisely of the Social Democrats and of their counterparts in the Solidarity group of Labour MPs. They do not wish to provoke the ruling class by suggesting a change in society. Yet all the developments of the last decade have been an indication of the stormy road that lies ahead for the working class. Millions of unemployed. No way out for the youth. Lowered real wages for the working class as a result of inflation, or as a result of an “incomes policy”, as advocated in an alternative by Healey and the Solidarity MPs. Even powerful sections of the working class like the miners, the water workers and others have not gained wage increases to compensate for the rate of inflation, especially when one takes into account the tax deductions from their wages.

A new period opens up in which only the transformation of society will solve the problems of the working class. What is necessary is for a Labour government to operate on the policy which is advocated by Militant. Break the power of big business by taking over the major companies and organise production on the basis of a plan. Unless this is done it will be inevitable that in desperation the ruling class will try and solve the problems of their shattered system at the expense of the standards of living and of the rights of the working class.

The price of liberty is eternal vigilance, it has been said! All the class rights which the working class possesses—the right to strike, the right to organise, the right to free speech, the right of free press—were not granted voluntarily by the ruling class, but were only gained as the result of the struggle of the working class. Even the right to vote freely can be taken away by the Tories and the ruling class when it threatens their system. We see already how they have prepared to abandon the old system and return to proportional representation in a desperate attempt to put a brake on a leftward moving Labour government.

The working class, in defence of their rights and interests, can only rely on the trade unions and the Labour Party. The working class can rely only on their own power and strength, their own organisation and their own consciousness and solidarity. It was only this power which led to the defeat of the Heath government by the miners in February 1974. Thatcher in panic drew back from a confrontation with the miners over pit closures, because the working class is a thousand times more powerful than it was at the time of the general strike in 1926.

What is necessary is the realisation among the active layers of the trade union and labour movement of the need for a socialist change of society as a pressing problem. This in its turn can be carried to the mass of the working class and prevent this nightmare of plots and counter-plots, of conspiracies and the other developments which show, as far as the ruling class is concerned, what is lurking in the background. They are thirsting for revenge to try and teach the working class a lesson. If they have failed to do so up to the present time it is because of the fear of the strength of the organisations of the working class.

Unless this strength is organised to change society then inevitably, not only in Britain but in other countries of the West, similar conspiracies will take place. Failure to transform society can lead to a situation where civil war in Britain becomes possible. The working class will never tamely accept the taking away of their rights. They will react as the Spanish workers reacted at the time of the civil war in 1936. They will defend all their rights, including the right to vote, and will not accept their being taken away without a struggle."

Great post....

The coup is on....statute law operates for the shadow corporate empire administered from the City of London through Wall Street, now shifting to China for the global economy, remaining Hong Kong for the black ops laundering economy.

This coalition will fail to the point the corporate queen will dissolve parliament, not under the constitutional standpoint and office she holds, she will dissolve through the corporate statute criteria. This will place the Navy in full control as the judiciary shifts into full and complete statute Hamurabi Code dictatorship.

The talk of forming a supposed new human rights bill...will be just that...another statute raft of laws over our existing constitution and all offices mandated under oath will shift from their oathed mandate unto a statutory regulatory system.

Great Britain will be no more as we leave the EU under full and complete dictatorship under the corporate statute hell we call the United Kingdom. All military intelligence operations will activate the contingency act and enforce a full military dictatorship having made this statutory shift with the claim it was with the will of the people.

New thinking is required, less of the spacemen and lizards, less of the idea it is the Russians, less of 911 and a big wake up to the fact the revolutions in the Muslim countries are no such thing, they are global intelligence fermenting the creation of an Islamic buffer for NATO before the real war begins....the West on the land 'V' the Navy and the east from the sea, air, and the star wars satellite grid we pay for with our addiction to mobile phones and sky tv.....

Aliens I don't think......just boys with toys and lots and lots of money

Who needs Bletchley Park

Capitalism is not and never has been the problem. It is Facism which is causing the mess. Profits to the corporations and losses to the masses. The root of the problem is the banking system where private banks have a licence to print money and then lately, even worse, gamble with it. The Grace Commission set up by Reagan in the USA reported that not one red cent raised from income tax went to the government to pay for the country's infrastructure or services but ALL went to the banks. A similar situation exists here and if the banks could be beaten and the government made its own INTEREST FREE currency all would be solved. The trouble is it was done once with such success that the banksters went for the jugular and hundreds of millions died as a result. The REAL reason for world war two.

Absolutely Item8

Fascism is the 'Imperial Rome' modus operandi itself a continuation of the Babylonian system. Each demarcated region within Sumer had as its leader an elite member of the chosen elite bloodlines of the time, each region was called a city, they were given the title...'sons of the gods'.

This system thrust itself upon the West from a spiritual standpoint in the fourth century, first under Constantine in the creation of the Church of Rome and onto the Jewish peoples late fourth Century with the forced implementation of the Talmud overriding the Orthodox view. This sealed in stone the rift between those who had been affected by the man Jesus as he preached against the Temple and those who called themselves Jews.

The Talmud presented as the interpretation of the Oral law was the interpretation given by the priesthood of the Temple in order they keep the temple alive after the fall of the military empire. Constantine was able to capitalise on the creation of the British Roman outpost, at his time a centralised economy and military formed by Hadrian, Constantine gained his power with an Army from Briton as it was then.

Constantine's removal of many British fighting men left a vacuum filled by an influx of Scandinavians and Saxons, it was from this group of immigrants that English Christianity was born.

The Imperial Empire responded in the use of their mercenary force known as the Vikings to soften the Britons in readiness for the Imperial invasion of 1066, shifting common law under god to common law under the Barony, the Templars were the conclusion of this takeover acting for Rome. This is the point at which they force the son in the position between man and the father, mimicking the Babylonian sons of god garb.

The Imperial Jesus is Lucifer.

The wars with France were not wars with France in the initial stages of this game, it was the Norman Vikings using the British men to fight the real French who despised the Viking as the rest of Europe despised the Viking, the problem comes in histories deceptive manipulation of what a Viking was, they have left us believing all Scandinavians are Vikings, this is purposeful as Sweden being the last Scandinavian country to accept Christianity, had its own version and it suited not the Roman elites.
This was cemented once again in the minds of the West in the rise of Hitler, obsessed with the Nordic supermen it would be difficult not to see the Aryan race as Hitler to future generations, at least enough to secure the New World Order in this time now.

Destruction of the British mind was the game, war was the method, until they reached the point at which the Christian common law itself became the barrier to expansion of their power over these Isles and the introduction of the Hamurabi Code, aka Statute Law... time for the church doctrines to be superseded, the Church required a new enemy, the Reformation was born of the psychopath Luther (seek out his sermons).
They required a new haven for the rebels, England had a king more ego than majestic, the nonconformist's seized the opportunity massaged Henry's lust's and pointed out the barrier to his success...England was changed, Puritans were in.... usury law must go.... but not yet as in order to achieve this end they required compliance from the monarch and Henry to the end of his reign had seen his mistake, which daughter wouldst satisfy this need...lizzie Dee.

A revamp of the Bible as rebellion from the church, enter the Statute script the King James and King James himself, loving boys giving Buckingham control not just of the country under James but over his son Charles to, Buckingham ensured the final break from the church....

Civil War it is.... the King is dead long live the bank

The laws on usury no more, Babylon is born in England, time for the Evangelicals to reign.

The Dukes of Marlborough brought in the central bank as they performed military might at Blenhiem, as payment they received the lands in Oxford and a palace for their treachery.

War and more war as the empire bled the British until Waterloo and the Crown move to take the economy behind their Hun front the House of Rothschild.

One World War left us bankrupt, enter the Statute script, World war II handed patents and colony to the new corporate crown front Wall Street, Britain doomed to medical addiction while the bankers killed the unions, implemented the LSD sub culture, Thatcher sold the infrastructure, Blair implemented the Fourth Reich education...Cameron and his merry coalition are preparing for depression in order war is the way out......

'O' dear me thinks we are in a mess....

Very Happy

The KJV is mostly right and all you have to do is put it back to its original language (There are books missing but there is enough in the KJV for people to see what they need to and search for)

Its got about the Laws of usury and you and Item8 mention how bad of a problem it is.

So what is the very simple answer to stop the bankers usury.

Let's get back to basics on this thread
Wikipedia Headline is a bit behind the times but....!


The 1968 plot

In his 1976 memoir Walking on Water, Hugh Cudlipp recounts a meeting he arranged at the request of Cecil King, the head of the International Publishing Corporation (IPC), between King and Lord Mountbatten of Burma. The meeting took place on May 8, 1968. Attending were Mountbatten, King, Cudlipp, and Sir Solly Zuckerman, the Chief Scientific Adviser to the British government.

According to Cudlipp:

"[Cecil] awaited the arrival of Sir Solly and then at once expounded his views on the gravity of the national situation, the urgency for action, and then embarked upon a shopping list of the Prime Minister's shortcomings...He explained that in the crisis he foresaw as being just around the corner, the Government would disintegrate, there would be bloodshed in the streets and the armed forces would be involved. The people would be looking to somebody like Lord Mountbatten as the titular head of a new administration, somebody renowned as a leader of men, who would be capable, backed by the best brains and administrators in the land, to restore public confidence. He ended with a question to Mountbatten- would he agree to be the titular head of a new administration in such circumstances?"[6]

Mountbatten asked for the opinion of Zuckerman, who stated that the plan amounted to treason and left the room. Mountbatten expressed the same opinion, and King and Cudlipp left.[7] On 30 May 1968 King was dismissed as the head of the International Publishing Corporation.

In addition to Mountbatten's refusal to participate in King's mooted plot, there is no evidence of any other conspirators. Cudlipp himself appears to see the meeting as an example of extreme egotism on King's part.[7]

A BBC programme The Plot Against Harold Wilson, broadcast in 2006, reported that, in tapes recorded soon after his resignation on health grounds, Wilson stated that for eight months of his premiership he didn't "feel he knew what was going on, fully, in security". Wilson alleged two plots, in the late 1960s and mid 1970s respectively. He said that plans had been hatched to install Lord Mountbatten, Prince Charles's great uncle and mentor, as interim Prime Minister (see also Other conspiracy theories, below). He also claimed that ex-military leaders had been building up private armies in anticipation of "wholesale domestic liquidation". On a separate track, elements within MI5 had also, the BBC programme reported, spread "black propaganda" that Wilson and Williams were Soviet agents, and that Wilson was an IRA sympathiser, apparently with the intention of helping the Conservatives win the 1974 election.

Alleged 1974 military coup plot

On the BBC television programme The Plot Against Harold Wilson, broadcast on March 16, 2006 on BBC2, it was claimed there were threats of a coup d'état against the Wilson government, which was corroborated by leading figures of the time on both the left and the right. Wilson told two BBC journalists, Roger Courtiour and Barrie Penrose, that he feared he was being undermined by MI5. The first time was in the late 1960s after the Wilson Government devalued the pound sterling but the threat faded after Conservative leader Edward Heath won the election of 1970. However after a coal miners strike Heath decided to hold an election to renew his mandate to govern in February 1974 but lost narrowly to Wilson. There was again talk of a military coup, with rumours of Lord Mountbatten as head of an interregnal administration after Wilson had been deposed. In 1974 the Army occupied Heathrow Airport on the grounds of training for possible IRA terrorist action there, however Baroness Falkender (a senior aide and close friend of Wilson) asserted that it was ordered as a practice-run for a military takeover or as a show of strength as the government itself was not informed of such an exercise based around a key point in the nation's infrastructure.[8]

Around 48-49 casually mentions Edward Heath signing some kind of approval of what could be a Gladio style operation to stop the spread of communism.

Britain’s Watergate? : The “Military Coup” Plot to bring down the Government
http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread955791/pg1posted on Jun, 26 2013 @ 05:08 PM link

“Mountbatten had a map on the wall of his office showing how it [a military coup] could be done. Harold [Wilson] and I used to stand in the State Room at No 10 and work out where they would put the guns. We reckoned they would site them in the Horse Guards…”
Baroness Falkender - (Sunday Times, 31 March 1981)



If you are less than half a century old and you watch some modern documentaries on Britain of the 1960s and 70s then you’d be forgiven for thinking that the United Kingdom led the world in music, style and attitude in the Swinging Sixties and this then led into a silly and fun era called the 1970s. A decade when all sense of style was lost until Margaret Thatcher came along at the very end to wake us all up and declare the party was over.

These documentaries come from children of the 1970s. Obsessed by a time of flared jeans, brown corduroys, orange tank tops , space hoppers, Raleigh chopper bicycles and Slade records. But blissfully unaware of the serious political and social problems in those days of innocence.

In March 1976 the then Prime Minister Harold Wilson ,an old bloke with a pipe, who reminded us of someone’s grandfather, announced his resignation due to exhaustion.

A long hot summer followed with his replacement James Callaghan as leader of Britain.

But recent history could well have been very, very different.

Because at any time in the eight years preceding that glorious summer of 1976 we could well have seen British troops patrolling the streets of London with Lord Louis Mountbatten sat in Downing Street as the leader of a nation under military rule.

During 1974 rumours spread amongst certain ranks of the British Army of a clandestine plan to take military action against the government. The troops would be ordered to occupy the streets of mainland Britain whilst a military “junta” restored control in a nation descending into chaos. The whispers originated from some senior officers but it appeared that the backing came from a higher authority, a much higher authority. Even the Royal Family were entwined in the plot.

The protagonists believed Britain was slowly becoming a communist nation and the inherited rights of an establishment dating back to the Magna Carta were in grave danger. Severe economic problems, ever increasing industrial disputes and trade-unions controlled by the far left were the motivating reasons in the minds of those wanting military intervention. Various hard right-wing figures including James Goldmith, Ross McWhirter, Airey Neave, Lord Lucan, SAS founder David Stirling, John Aspinall and senior MI5 figures were alleged to have been behind the scheme.

The conspiracy was focused on Harold Wilson who served as Prime Minister from 1964 to 1970 and again from 1974 to 1976, winning four general elections. But then 5 weeks after his resignation in 1976, Wilson told two BBC journalists, Roger Courtiour and Barrie Penrose, of his fears. that he had been unaware of what was going on in his intelligence services and that the pair should investigate the forces threatening democratic countries like Britain.

He warned them


Business groups and other antidemocratic agencies…. these people are putting our whole idea of democracy at risk.”


Wilson was in effect their “Deep Throat” giving them valuable leads to uncover the underlying anti-democratic agenda against his government. They failed because they were distracted by another political scandal involving Jeremy Thorpe.

So for decades after Wilson’s resignation the facts remained obscured and buried amongst half truths and rumour. An official investigation in 1987 , carried out under Margaret Thatcher, unsurprisingly concluded the allegations were false, implying that Harold Wilson was delusional or paranoid.

But was he?

How Did Moves for a Military Takeover of Britain begin?



The reasons for the upper class distrust in socialism went right back to the end of the British Empire but fears were accelerated by the events of the Cold War.

Soviet defector Anatoliy Golitsyn is thought to have labelled Harold Wilson as a KGB spy. He speculated that the previous Labour Party Leader , Hugh Gaitskell, was poisoned by the KGB so that he could be replaced by a more left wing Harold Wilson. In his book “Spycatcher”, former MI5 officer Peter Wright confirmed, Wilson was the victim of a protracted, illegal campaign of destabilisation by a rogue element in the security services and they were prompted by fears that Wilson was a Soviet agent.

MI5 repeatedly investigated Wilson over the course of several years looking for his “links to the KGB”. Wilson had made frequent visits to the Soviet Union as President of the Board of Trade in the late 1940s and early 1950s and this had more than aroused suspicion. However nothing concrete ever materialised.

America was also casting a suspicious, eagle eye across the pond. During the 1960s the CIA’s head of counter-intelligence, James Angleton (pictured), also believed Britain was reaching a point where it would become ungovernable. He saw unions and workers organisations full of Trotskyists , and believed the Labour Party had been penetrated at the highest levels by communists. Angleton let it be known that Wilson had been “got at “ by the Soviets to his counterparts in Britain. His source - Anatoliy Golitsyn.

In 1968 Daily Mirror owner Cecil King was another who believed that Britain was sliding into anarchy. On May 8th 1968 he met with Lord Mountbatten, retired Chief of Defence Staff, along with Solly Zuckerman, the government's scientific adviser. In Cecil King's memoirs, ‘Without Fear or Favour’, he says he told Mountbatten of his plans. Mountbatten is alleged to have confirmed anxiety about the government in Buckingham Palace, and that the Queen had received unprecedented numbers of letters protesting about Wilson.

King then outlined his vision of an approaching economic collapse and a Prime Minister and government no longer able to control Britain. Public order would break down leading to bloodshed in the streets. He wanted Mountbatten as the head of a new administration to restore public confidence. Zuckerman left the room refusing to have anything to do with King. He told Mountbatten that this was treachery and they should have nothing to do with any conspiracy to overthrow Wilson.

Two days later, King published a self credited article in the Daily Mirror "Enough is enough".
It read:





"Mr Wilson and his government have lost all credit and we are now threatened with the greatest financial crisis in history. It is not to be resolved by lies about our reserves but only by a fresh start under a fresh leader."


King was demanding Wilson's dismissal and his removal from Downing Street. It spectacularly backfired. Three weeks later on 30th May 1968 King was fired.

Ministry of Defence condemns serving army general behind Jeremy Corbyn 'mutiny' threat
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/ministry-of-defence-cond emn-army-general-behind-jeremy-corbyn-mutiny-threat-10510353.html

Some Conservatives also expressed disquiet with right-wing MEP Daniel Hannan describing the general as an 'idiot'
By OLIVER WRIGHT
Monday 21 September 2015
The Ministry of Defence moved to condemn a serving army general who warned that Jeremy Corbyn could face “a mutiny” from the military if he became Prime Minister. In highly contentious remarks, the unnamed army commander said any attempt by Mr Corbyn to take Britain out of Nato, scrap Trident or cut the size of Britain’s forces would be fought by means “fair or foul”.
The general added that a Labour victory under Mr Corbyn in 2020 would result in “mass resignations at all levels” and there would be the “very real prospect of an event which would effectively be a mutiny”. While Labour publicly refused to comment on the views of what it described as an “anonymous general”, in private senior sources described the remarks as “pretty outrageous”.
“You can’t have serving officers effectively threatening a coup against an elected government,” they said. “This general seems to have forgotten that we live in a democracy.” A Ministry of Defence source said it was unacceptable for a serving officer to make political comments about a potential “future government”.

British Army 'could stage mutiny under Corbyn', says senior serving general

Even some Conservatives expressed disquiet. The right-wing Tory MEP Daniel Hannan described the general as an “idiot”. “We’re not Bolivia for God’s sake,” he said. The general, who is understood to have served in Northern Ireland in the 1980s, claimed that the armed forces would take “direct action” to prevent a Corbyn government from downgrading it and went on to say that his victory had been greeted with “wholesale dismay” even among Labour-supporting soldiers.
“There would be mass resignations at all levels and you would face the very real prospect of an event which would effectively be a mutiny,” the general said.
Labour Shadow Cabinet: The key figures
“Feelings are running very high within the armed forces. You would see a major break in convention with senior generals directly and publicly challenging Corbyn over vital, important policy decisions such as Trident, pulling out of Nato and any plans to emasculate and shrink the size of the armed forces.
“The Army just wouldn’t stand for it. The general staff would not allow a Prime Minister to jeopardise the security of this country and people would use whatever means possible, fair or foul, to prevent that. You can’t put a maverick in charge of a country’s security.”
One political government source suggested that while the general’s remark might have been unwise, it did reflect broader concern among service chiefs about the direction Mr Corbyn might take the Labour Party.
“It does show the level of concern in the armed forces, which in itself is alarming,” the source said.
“You only need to see the passionate defence of Nato made recently by the Chief of the Defence Staff to see where they stand on some of these issues.”
An MoD source said “no one” at the top of the military would ever “sign off” on a general “talking about political issues” in such a way.
“It would be fair to say that these remarks are not helpful,” the MoD source commented. “No one thinks that it is a good idea for a senior serving officer to undermine a potential future government.”
However, a Ministry of Defence spokesman ruled out a leak inquiry on the grounds that it would be almost impossible to identify the culprit. Despite cutbacks, there are still around 100 serving generals in the army.

'Corbyn's plan to UK from Nato would be disastrous'

Mr Corbyn also faces opposition from his own front bench over his positions on defence, particularly on whether to back air strikes against Isis positions in Syria. Lord Falconer, the shadow Justice Secretary, said he would be prepared to back a bombing campaign as long as it had proper military and legal justification.
Hilary Benn, the shadow Foreign Secretary, also refused to rule out supporting military intervention, saying he would “look at the objectives”.
Mr Corbyn will have to decide whether to give his MPs a free vote on the issue to avoid resignations.
It was suggested that up to half of the Shadow Cabinet could support the Government at a vote.
Lord Falconer, who was Lord Chancellor under Tony Blair, listed a string of issues on which he differs from Mr Corbyn – including abolishing academies, leaving Nato, keeping the energy companies in private hands, independence for the Bank of England, renewing Trident and the benefit cap. But said he was able to serve because Mr Corbyn is “very, very pluralistic”.
“We’ve had the earthquake,” he said. “The time has come to work out what is the forward-looking position of the Labour Party and Jeremy, to his credit, is a very, very pluralistic person.”

Calm temporarily returned for a brief moment when Conservative leader Edward Heath (right) won the general election in 1970. But the economic and social problems worsened.

By late 1973 people of the privileged classes believed that they were witnessing the end of their 'British way of life'.


In a BBC programme aired in 2006 a secret document was revealed and confirmed that the Heath government of Edward Heath had been making plans for emergency rule by requisitioning TV and radio stations, the post office (which included what is now British Telecom), calling up a volunteer labour force, commandeering public transport, preparation of food depots with supplies for four weeks and the emergency stockpiling of fuel. Heath was Prime Minister for just four years, and declared five states of emergency in Britain. A declaration only made just 7 times in the previous 50 years.

Heath’s plans to curb the unions met with fierce resistance. His government ordered industry on to 3-day weeks to conserve fuel when power workers went on strike. Unemployment hit record levels. In Northern Ireland paratroopers shot dead unarmed civilians. After chronically serious industrial problems during his tenure, culminating in a coal miners strike, Heath decided to hold an election to renew his mandate in February 1974.But he lost narrowly to Wilson.

With Labour back in power, inflation rampant and the top rate of income tax at 98%, talk of a military coup circulated once again amongst the upper echelons of society and their military contacts. As the armed forces oath of allegiance was to the Queen, not her government then it seemed plausible that the government of the day could be removed legally by Royal Prerogative and military force.

The initial plan was for the Army to seize Heathrow airport, then the BBC and protect Buckingham Palace.

The Queen would issue a statement urging public support for the armed forces as her government could no longer be entrusted to maintain order. Rather worryingly an internment camp would be set up on the Shetland Islands.

Wilson’s cabinet would be held captive on the QE2, whilst his government was replaced with one headed by Lord Louis Mountbatten (pictured) .
In 1974 the Army did indeed occupy Heathrow Airport . Officially because terrorists were planning to mount an anti-aircraft attack with hand held missiles. The range of such missiles was over 50 miles. So it seems the exercise may have had another purpose.

Wilson’s political secretary Marcia Williams (Baroness Falkender) claimed that this was actually a trial run for a military takeover of Britain.

She pointed to a number of other troop mobilisations during 1974 at a time of high political tension. It is still not known who authorised them. Harold Wilson knew nothing about them in advance. Nobody had warned him troop manoeuvres were about to take place.

Someone with great influence over the military was leaving the Prime Minister completely out of the loop.

This was the moment Williams and Wilson speculated that this might be the beginning of a coup and that….


“….the guns would be trained on us from Horse Guards Parade.”


Clockwork Orange



Wilson’s final term in office saw a smear campaign launched against his government linked directly back to MI5.

Marcia Williams was accused of having an affair with Harold Wilson and labelled as a dedicated communist. Harold Wilson was accused of being an IRA sympathiser and a communist too.


Private armies began to spring up in the United Kingdom. One was ‘GB75’ set up by David Sterling ,for “apprehensive patriots “ , as he called them . Although it seemed their major purpose was to take armed action during a tense political situation if the need arose. Whatever that meant.

While those who were older were very conscious of the politcal problems.
Industrial strife was endemic.
Ted Heath had been brought down by a coal strike.
There was discussion in the newspapers about whether Britain was becoming ungovernable.
A bit of a nightmare decade, if you were grown-up.
And who wakened us from that nightmare? (Better not start that one again).

I remember a mysterious article by Auberon Waugh in the Spectator announcing baldly that these were the orders, that you are to march down Whitehall and take over. Nothing happened, of course.
(The opening words were something like "Right, this is what you do"- but there was no context for it, so it was unfathomable)

I think the Mountbatten-King-Zuckermann meeting was reported in Private Eye, not too many years after the event.

Major Alexander Greenwood explained to the BBC in 2006 how things prevailed in the mindset of the British elite at the time.




“I came back from a cruise down the Rhine to discover to my horror that interest rates were 15 percent for one month certain, I discovered that the unions were striking again, the IRA were dropping bombs around. It was no longer a green and pleasant land, England. I thought the BBC would break down for one thing. I thought the trains would fail to run. London airport would not function anymore. The ports would be stagnant. There would be complete chaos in the land. You know the people who work in the City of London were not liking it and people who work as stockbrokers usually come from the best schools and a lot of them have titles and they weren’t liking it at all.
I know the Queen—she wasn’t very happy with Mr. Harold Wilson—but there wasn’t much she could do about it at that time. And Lord Mountbatten rang up Sir Walter Walker one evening and said, ‘If you want any help from me will you let me know.’ Sir Walter Walker had prepared a sort of speech, which the Queen might read out on the BBC that asked the people to stand behind the armed forces as there was a breakdown of law and order and the government could not keep the unions in control.”

In October of 1974 Wilson went to the polls and secured another majority in spite of MI5 constantly feeding the media with stories that he was a Soviet spy.



A vital part of the disinformation campaign against Wilson was “Clockwork Orange,” an operation run by the Information Policy Unit (IPU) working from the Army Press Office in Northern Ireland and ran in conjunction with MI5.
Colin Wallace was the MoD press officer involved in “Clockwork Orange.” He was later framed and imprisoned for manslaughter after trying to expose this operation. Wallace confirmed that the IPU briefed the press with false information linking Wilson and other Labour MPs to Soviet intelligence and the IRA.




“They believed they were the guardians of the United Kingdom. They felt that the political machinery was incapable of giving them support or introducing the policies that would enable them to deal with that threat.”
“The information that I received was related to political unreliability. It was quite clear that this information was designed not just to discredit him (Wilson) in a general sense, but bearing in mind that we were in a period running up to a general election, that that information would, most likely, have had a fairly major impact on how the public viewed him.”


The British occupation of Northern Ireland became a focus for the most reactionary forces in UK society and measures developed there came to be employed in Britain itself. The security measures designed to combat the IRA was also directed against British workers.

Wilson already knew about Wallace’s activities in 1976. He told the journalists, Penrose and Courtiour ,to speak to him, but they failed to follow up the lead as they were getting deeper into the murder accusations surrounding Jeremy Thorpe. Had they done so, Wilson’s suspicion that the security services were attempting to smear him would have been confirmed.
During the 1970s MI5 was spending more time watching British trade unionists, peace campaigners and political activists than the Soviets themselves.
By the end of the 1970s, they had files on more than 2 million UK citizens. According to Peter Wright over 30 intelligence officers had authorised leaks about Harold Wilson and other senior Labour MPs conspiring in a plot to get rid of the Prime Minister.

Despite all of this intrigue, officially, Harold Wilson resigned due to ill health in 1976. The first signs of what we now know as Alzheimer’s disease were setting in. It could be that he had become somewhat paranoid. However the British Establishment were well aware of plots against his government. The real driving force was coming from an even more paranoid and rather odd collection of people employed within the intelligence agencies who thought communism had infected Downing Street itself.

Despite the vocal protestations of the loud, but small minority within trade unions and workers groups, the British Communist Party enjoyed little support from the great majority of the public. The term ‘British Intelligence’ had seemingly become an oxymoron in 1970s.

The threat of a right-wing military coup with the support of the British military seems laughable now but was it back in the middle of the 1970s?

In the Radio Times of 2006 regarding the BBC docu-drama “The Plot Against Harold Wilson”
Penrose concluded:



"You may ask, how much of it can be believed. My view now, as it was then, is that Wilson was right in his fears.... in answer to the question 'how close did we come to a military government' I can only say - closer than we'd ever be content to think."



BBC Journalists Roger Courtiour and Barrie Penrose 2006

The irony is of course that by 1979, the democratic process delivered the most right wing government in living memory. The Thatcher years crushed the Trade Unions and splintered the left for years. Labour did not regain power again until 1997. That’s a whole new chapter…….

Stella Rimington: the 'unofficial' biography.

(By an ex-spook who worked for both MI5 and MI6 between 1979-2003.)

India : Rimington was recruited by MI5 as a colonial wife. After mind control programming, she went completely crazy. Rimington was given a cocktail of prescriptive drugs by the resident doctor at the High Commission, in order to keep a lid on her 'hallucinatory delusions'.
Later in life, Rimington was to keep a supply of Seconal in her handbag, to counter the psychotic episodes brought on by her increasing dependence upon cocaine. In short, she began to 'self-medicate'.
London - MI5 HQ: The early days. Rimington was hired as a secretary, even though she couldn't type. Her main job was to attend discreet parties and seduce various influential male figures.
Rimington began to drink too much in order to cope with this life of prostitution, whilst maintaining the semblance of a wife and mother of two young girls. To remedy this, she became bulimic, making herself throw up after the parties in order to get rid of the excess alcohol and to maintain her figure.
When Rimington had finally learnt how to type and was useful in the office, her boss (later to become Director-General of MI5) had a curious peccadillo: he requested that she type in the nude. Rimington often complained that she had to keep a bar-fire on during the winter months. Apart from that, her boss allegedly, never touched her. A voyeur, primarily and a family man.

Middle-aged and in Middle-Management
Rimington was chosen to be trained up by MI6 as an agent-runner. She was taught how to use and abuse new recruits by the implementation of the MI6 mind control programme: 'Alice in Wonderland'.
Not content with being 'privileged' to know the secrets of this MI6 mind control programme, Rimington decided to use one of her own agents (in 1989) to steal the MI6 mind control code book. With this knowledge (which included her own codes) she managed to not only break out of the system but also to potentially control it from the outside.

Promotion
This was easy in view of the above. Rimington had become a megalomaniac and control freak. She wasn't particularly intelligent but what she knew, she could put to good use, in terms of her own career. She acted in a Machiavellian way, using realpolitik to get rid of her rivals in the Service and was soon on the way to the top...

Director-General of MI5
Once in charge of MI5, those near VauxhallBridge had very good reason to be afraid. Rimington began to 'knock off' MI6 agents abroad, for a variety of ill-defined reasons. A flippant remark at a social gathering could ensure an officer or agent's early retirement, sacking or 'disappearance'.
Rimington had become a full-blown psychotic at this point and her downfall came when she ordered the 'crash' of a military helicopter containing MI6 and MI5 Northern Ireland officers, over the Mull of Kintyre.
MI6 finally got wind of what she was up to and devised a 'sting' operation.
It was successful.
Rimington retired, somewhat ungracefully, in 1996.

Aftermath
Rimington continued to use the 'Alice in Wonderland' mind control programme outside of the auspices of British Intelligence Security Services. She collaborated with former officers, agents and the SAS. She has been involved in child-trafficking and the prostitution trade, ever since.

Trivia
Rimington is an S/M lesbian who is well-known on the London club circuit.
She has published two novels (ghost-written by her editor) and a 'book of lies' i.e. her autobiography.
She once attacked a waitress with a fork in a Soho restaurant during one of her psychotic episodes.
Her favourite pop song is 'Super Trouper' - the only one she will dance to at Lesbian clubs.

She sacked Andrew Marr from the general INSET graduate trainee course (1980) because he dared to ask her 'girlfriend' (new recruit on course) to dance. Marr never graduated to become an officer like his comrade-in-arms, Richard Tomlinson. He has been used and run as an MI5 agent, ever since.

OSCAR HUMPHREY BOHUN GYDE


Full name : Oscar Humphrey Bohun Gyde
Date of Birth : 14th July 1936
Occupation : retired Consultant Haematologist
Religion : Royal Arch Freemasonry
Interests : computing and Artificial Intelligence


Dr O H B Gyde received an ‘A’ merit award upon his retirement.

Read the British Medical Journal to find out what these ‘Merit Awards’ are supposed to be awarded for:
http://www.bmj.com/cgi/content/full/308/6934/973

Dr O H B Gyde did not receive this award for services rendered to the NHS, he received this award for services rendered to the Crown – specifically British Intelligence.
Read the BBC’s article to find accusations of ‘cronyism’ and corruption within the system:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/special_report/1998/05/98/the_bristol_heart _babies/148282.stm

The question is: why was Dr O H B Gyde given such an honourable discharge?

He had not discovered or invented anything new, nor had he added to the body of knowledge in his specialized area: Leukaemia.
Dr O H B Gyde is a fully paid-up member of British Intelligence and comes from a British Intelligence family. He also recruited his children into the Intelligence Services.
After being given an ‘A’ merit award, Dr O H B Gyde received an extra 40,000 pounds p.a. which was added on to his already substantial pension, upon retirement.

Dr O H B Gyde taught modules to medical students at a university in Libya whilst he was a Fellow of Birmingham University. During this time he was also acting as a ‘courier’ for MI6.
He also negotiated ‘mind control’ programs with notaries from Mormon Universities in Utah, for MI5.
Artificial Intelligence is Dr O H B Gyde’s specialist interest and the ‘re-wiring of human brains’ as he once put it.
To be specific, the repulsive practice of mind-splitting, left/right brain programming and the compartmentalization of the human brain.
In short, the reduction of human beings into robots or automatons under mind control, rather than the evolution of human psychology in terms of philosophy, science, arts and culture.

Why did Dr Gyde believe that this insane and degenerate practice of mind control was a valuable area of research?
He was a victim of it himself. NHS colleagues outside of British Intelligence, have informally diagnosed him with ‘High-Functioning Asperger’s Syndrome’ but he has never had treatment or therapy for this condition and it therefore remains officially, undiagnosed.
Dr Gyde’s family belonged to Royal Arch Freemasonry and a Royal Nazi cult which has controlled MI6, since its inception as a military intelligence department in the early 20th century.
The mind control program that Dr Gyde was primarily involved with, was the Illuminati program, otherwise known as ‘Project Monarch’.

The existence of this mind control project has been admitted to by the US government in US lawcourts where damages were subsequently paid to the victims of Monarch experiments. British Intelligence has never admitted to its role in this program and refuses to do so. One can only guess that the cost of lawsuits against them, would be too high.

British Illuminati (or ‘intelligence’) families recruit and program their own children from birth. Here is a brief list of what Dr Gyde and his associates in the NHS did to their own children and others :

The sadistic practice of the ‘Potter’s Wheel’ i.e. the physical and psychological abuse of babies and young children to make them disassociate and ‘mind-split’ – usually done by electric shock.
The sexual abuse and rape of young children by the Illuminati family and other cult members.
The Masonic rites and rituals involving the worship of Lucifer the Light-Bringer.
The use and abuse of NHS facilities to experiment with blood and DNA.
The targeting of babies in the womb, chosen for the ‘X’ factor and subsequent experimentation before and after they are born, unbeknownst to their parents.

To conclude :

Dr O H B Gyde is a paedophile, a rapist and abuser of both women and children under mind control. He is also a victim of the system which he has continued to perpetuate and perpetrate for his entire career. A system of mind control which is run by British Intelligence and sanctioned by Royal Arch Freemasonry.

STEPHEN DALDRY

At sixteen years old, Stephen Daldry was an odd teenager. He was what his teachers described as 'backward but well-meaning' and a 'very polite young man'. Daldry's father had died a year earlier of stomach cancer. He would not see a doctor during this period, nor would he take pain-killers. He died an agonising death although when questioned at the time, Daldry didn't seem to appear bothered about his father's tortuous demise. Odd for a middle-class member of the banking milieu, not to want to see a doctor. It raises a question mark as to why...

Stephen Daldry's odd behaviour (to be described later on) after his father's death was explained in terms of 'delayed shock'. However, Daldry had been 'odd' before that. His major recreational activity was 'baby-sitting' in the evenings, whilst his peer group played sport, went to pubs, concerts etc.
At sixteen years old, Daldry was to talk his way onto a national school trip up the Norwegian fjords, on the SS Uganda, in 1975. He had already left school and was therefore not eligible to apply (only for 10-15 year olds who were still at school). However, his school relented and Daldry was allowed on board. Most of the children thought that he must be a teacher. At nearly 6 foot tall and with a military 'upper-class' accent, he certainly struck most of them as being one of the teachers. However, his 'best friend' on the trip was a 13 year-old boy from his school, who was rather short for his age and the two of them used to race around the decks as if they were much younger than either of their two ages.

Stephen Daldry raped a 12 year-old girl whilst on this trip. Her schoolmates found out (they were aware that he had been following her around) when she began to have violent nightmares, re-living the rape. She was too terrorised to talk about it at first but eventually admitted to having been raped, mainly because she would wake up screaming his name and shouting at 'Stephen' to get off her, pleading that 'it' hurt so much.
Daldry pleaded complete innocence and his teachers backed him up. However, the crew had evidence as to where he had been that evening and the Captain who subsequently interviewed Daldry, was quite sure of his guilt. He duly informed Daldry's school despite protests from his teachers. The teachers justified Daldry's behaviour on the grounds that he was still disturbed after his father's death, the year before. The girl's parents did not press charges in the end because they were too worried about the effect on their daughter in terms of the horrors of a rape case i.e. that their daughter would have to face Daldry in court and be subjected to cross-questioning. This was 1975.
Agents have supplied some interesting information about what subsequently happened. In 1989, the SS Uganda's naval records disappeared for the year 1975. Why? The MI5 agent who stole them says that Stella Rimington (who had become a good friend of Daldry's after the INSET course) decided that the Press were getting too interested in Daldry's private life and were about to expose him for paedophilia. Therefore, any hard evidence had to disappear.

Manningham-Buller was to tell an agent that the Captain involved had 'died young' and apparently of a heart attack in his forties, although he had had no history of heart disease before that and had been a fit and healthy man. She was basically 'warning' the agent to keep quiet.
Stephen Daldry is known by his friends in British theatre to be absolutely open about his predilection for paedophilia. In 1995, one of his Royal Court Theatre directors, had to bring in his young son to work (unable to find a child-minder) and had left the child in the office that he shared with Daldry. When he returned, he found to his horror, that Daldry was sexually molesting his child. Unable to launch a complaint against his boss because he feared losing his job, the director in question, then discreetly began to circulate the information amongst other parents.
As far British Intelligence was concerned, Daldry was and is a valuable asset to them, as an agent in the arts/media world. He was allowed free rein to do his most 'terrible desires' because this meant that he could easily be blackmailed into any 'black ops' i.e. that he would follow any orders unquestioningly, no matter how terrible they were. Those who ran Daldry, therefore turned a blind eye to his paedophilia.

In short, if MI5 or MI6 think that the pay-off is worth it, they tend to keep animals like Daldry on a leash i.e. 'feeding' them once in a while and then sending them out to do another 'job'.

There are pages and pages that could be written about this man and what he has done but the details are simply too sickening and far worse than what has been written here. Suffice to say that British Intelligence agents have given accounts where they were punished for disobeying orders, by having to watch Daldry rape small boys - some as young as 3/4 years old but there are other things that have been reported, which are simply too obscene to mention here.
As far as 'black ops' are concerned, Daldry's most infamous moment came in 1994: when MI5 decided to use Daldry's helicopter pilot skills to their benefit. He was the agent who was to tie oily rags around the mechanics of a Chinook military helicopter in order to make it crash and it did, over the Mull of Kintyre - killing 25 'Intelligence' personnel and 4 crew members.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinook_crash_on_Mull_of_Kintyre

MI6 had originally blamed the Americans on this one, who are still very angry about the whole thing. MI6 then found out who was really guilty and used it to their advantage, in terms of getting Stella Rimington out of office.

ROYAL GENOME PROJECT
VLADIMIR PUTIN
The Royal Genome project

In brief, Vladimir Putin had been chosen as a DNA sperm donor within this Royal 'zygote' project and had then been ordered by the Masonic body to copulate with various British female agents, whilst in Berlin. The zygotes were then 'collected' and the young woman involved, was subsequently murdered. Stephen Daldry had organised various victims to be sent to Berlin for exactly this purpose. He has also boasted of listening to them (bugged rooms) being murdered, during this period. Cameras were also placed in the TV sets for the Royal Arch Freemasons to view afterwards - in essence, 'snuff movies'.

MI5 AND THE KINCORA BOYS

The following is an extract from an article in Wakeup Magazine (full article at jackgrantham)

"For years, MI5 had been aware of a homosexual vice ring operating within the Kincora Boys Home in East Belfast, which was run by William McGrath, a notorious homosexual and leader of a strongly anti-Communist paramilitary organisation called Tara.

"McGrath was also a member of the Orange Order and of Ian Paisley's Free Presbyterian Church and was employed by MI5 since the mid 1960s.

"Amongst various other Loyalist members of the homosexual ring were John McKeague, who ran the Loyalist paramilitary organisation, the Red Hand Commandos, which was involved in many sectarian killings.

"When Loyalists threatened the Ulster Workers Council strike as a means of bringing down the power-sharing executive (the alliance of moderate Protestants and Catholic created by the Heath Government), Colin Wallace was instructed to leak intelligence reports on Kincora (as part of a project code-named Clockwork Orange 2) to put pressure on key people who MI5 believed had influence over the Loyalists.

"However, after a short time Wallace was told to stop 'because London had a change of mind and wanted the Ulster Workers Council Strike to succeed. I later discovered that this new strategy was part of the overall policy to discredit Harold Wilson in that the Sunningdale Agreement was a Conservative initiative and was now being seen to fail under Labour.'

"MI5 agent James Miller had infiltrated the UDA in the early 1970s, becoming one of its leading intelligence officers. He later revealed that senior MI5 officers had ordered him in early 1974 to 'get UDA men at grass roots level to start pushing for a strike. So I did.'

"So, MI5 allowed the ill-treatment and sexual abuse of residents at the Kincora Boys Home to continue; the Loyalist strike was allowed to proceed and there was a complete breakdown of law and order. The province was virtually taken over by Loyalist paramilitary organisations.

"Two days into the strike, Loyalist paramilitaries exploded car bombs in Dublin and Monaghan, killing thirty three civilians.

"The Loyalists responsible were members of the outlawed Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF), some of whom were acting as undercover agents for Military Intelligence. The explosives, training and planning for the mission were given by the SAS. Key suspects known to the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) were never questioned about the massacre."

MI5 NORTH WALES PAEDOPHILE RING

Scallywag Magazine alleged that MI5 used to take foreign diplomats to the North Wales homes, give them boys to "play" with, secretly filmed them as they buggered, abused and tortured boys then kept the tapes as evidence.
Over a dozen victims who complained of abuse by the paedophile ring 'have met suspicious deaths'.
