1. The elite like to be able to rig elections.
Alex weir, a Scottish software developer, invented 'a fraud-proof voting system'. (Scottish inventor of fraud proof voting system.)
Weir tried to get the support of UK Defence Minister Des Browne for ‘his’ voting system. (Kilmaurs man's voting system stalled by government experts ...)
Weir believes there is evidence that the security services tried to kill him. (UK Gov failed to assassinate Scottish inventor. / 'had death threats'.)
Reportedly, "MI6 ...in 2007 ... tried (unsuccessfully) to assassinate the Scottish inventor of a fraud proof voting system ...over a 2 week period in Conakry, Beirut, Aleppo and Nairobi." (Top secret: A century of British espionage)
2. Police have investigated death threats made against Phil Shiner, the British human rights lawyer who represented the family of Baha Mousa.
Shiner claims to be the victim of a hate campaign stirred up by the UK Ministry of Defence.
Shiner said: "My life has been threatened and, as some of these threats emanate from the suburbs of Birmingham where my children live, I am very concerned for their welfare too. I call on the Ministry of Defence to stop this behaviour and I say for the record that if anything happens to me, my family or my staff, it will be held entirely responsible". (Army victims' lawyer 'had death threats'.)
3. Former BBC chief Greg Dyke accused the UK Government of "trying to kill" Andrew Gilligan, the journalist who, with the help of Dr David Kelly, revealed the truth about the dodgy dossier on Iraq. (Richard Sambrook.)
4. There is evidence that Dr David Kelly did not kill himself.
The Daily Mail has asked: Did MI5 kill the UK Government weapons expert Dr David Kelly?
5. Ex-spy Richard Tomlinson told the Princess Diana inquest that he saw an MI6 plan to trigger a tunnel death crash just like the one that killed Diana. (Princess Diana Inquest I saw MI6 plan for tunnel death crash ...)
6. In October 2009, The Independent (UK) told us about an attempt to assassinate Egypt's President Nasser (Top secret: A century of British espionage)
UK prime minister Anthony Eden wanted a solution to the “Nasser problem”.
Reportedly, an MI6 spy told the then-MI5 chief, Dick White: “Look, old boy, we really will have to do something about this fellow Nasser. Maybe we’ll have to get rid of him.”
MI6 consulted an 88-page CIA manual called “Assassination Methods”. Meanwhile, the Q department was tasked with finding a way to do the job that could not be traced back to Britain.
Nasser’s weakness for the popular Egyptian Knopje chocolates was seized upon and a dozen boxes were sent to Q department for experiments.
The team under Frank Quinn – later the inspiration for Fleming’s “Q” – also acquired an odourless shellfish toxin from Britain’s chemical and biological warfare labs at Porton Down.
Quinn developed a way to heat the base of the chocolates so that they became detached, allowing for the injection of the poison. A box of toxic chocolates was handed over but never used.
When Eden rejected a new plot to pump nerve gas into Nasser’s air conditioning system, Quinn suggested a CIA-designed box of cigarettes containing a poisoned dart.
Dr Ladell, a scientist at Porton Down nicknamed “The Sorcerer”, had tested the dart on sheep. “[The animal] begins to buckle at the knees and it starts to roll its eyes, froths at the mouth,” his report reads. “Slowly the animal sinks to the ground, its life draining away.”
Nasser would be spared this fate, too – Quinn feared the dart could be traced. Israeli intelligence stepped in with a plan to poison Nasser’s coffee by tainting his artificial sweetener.
7. Reportedly, Dr Stephen Ward, who was involved in the Profumo scandal, was murdered by the security services.
Ward had an MI5 controller, Keith Wagstaffe (cover-name 'Woods').
Reportedly, Sir Colin Coote, Editor of the Daily Telegraph and a former officer in the Secret Intelligence Service, was responsible for introducing Ward to Russian spy Ivanov at the behest of his old service. (PROFUMO, John - Spy School Bios)
According to an article in The Independent (Top secret: A century of British espionage), the British government used Ward "as a 'back channel' during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis between London and Moscow."
The new official history of the Security Service by Professor Christopher Andrew reveals that Ward was used by the UK government to pass messages from the Soviet embassy to the Foreign Secretary.
In 1987 Anthony Summers and Stephen Dorril published their book on the Stephen Ward case, Honeytrap. (Stephen Ward - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
The authors were contacted by a former MI6 officer who claimed that Ward was murdered by a contract agent called Stanley Rytter, whose cover was as a freelance journalist and photographer.
Summers and Dorril investigated the allegation and got the story confirmed by one of his associates, Serge Paplinski.
The intelligence officer then went on to say: "It was decided that Ward had to die.... He admitted (Rytter) that Ward was killed on the instructions of his department." (Stephen Ward - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
8. Reportedly the UK security services did NOT want to kill Adolf Hitler.
Agent Zigzag was Eddie Chapman, a safe-cracker, who was in prison in Jersey (UK) when the Nazis invaded the Channel Islands in 1940.
Chapman was recruited by German intelligence and parachuted into Britain.
He defected to Britain's MI5.
The Independent continues the story. (Top secret: A century of British espionage)
"Chapman told Ronnie Reed, his case officer, that his German spymaster had offered to place him near Hitler’s podium at a Nazi rally.
"Disguised as a German officer, Chapman would blow up the Fuhrer."
Chapman's offer was rejected by MI5.
9. MI6 officer George Blake, whose father was Jewish, was secretly working for the Russians.
A Polish defector claimed Blake had caused the deaths of 40 British agents.
The Government tried to cover up Blake’s treachery.
In 1961, Blake was sent to jail.
But he was able to escape to Moscow. (Top secret: A century of British espionage)
One might wonder if Blake had friends in Mossad.
10. IRA man Denis Donaldson secretly worked for British intelligence.
He built republican links with European terrorist groups including Eta. (Top secret: A century of British espionage)
He was found shot dead in 2006.
The British security services seem to have decided to try to discredit the Nationalists by getting them involved in acts of violence.
Roy McShane and Freddie Scappaticci (Stakeknife) were key members of the IRA’s internal security (counter-intelligence) unit.
McShane was implicated in the murder of West German industrialist Thomas Niedermayer in December 1973.
Scappaticci reportedly took part in the murders of a number of people accused of informing against the IRA. (Freddie Scappaticci - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
Denis Donaldson was head of Sinn Fein's administration at Stormont.
Donaldson and McShane were key aides of Gerry Adams.
Sean O'Callaghan was at one time IRA southern commander.
Kevin Fulton has described how he worked for the IRA in the job of upgrading IRA bomb-making technology.
Martin McGartland worked inside the IRA's Belfast brigade.
It has now been revealed that McShane, Scappaticci, Donaldson, O'Callaghan, Fulton and McGartland were all working for the British security services.
