We now know the Woolwich soldier ‘attack’ may well have been faked.
It’s strange how the staged event took place only weeks after a new head of M15 was appointed.
” The father of the alleged ‘Woolwich terrorist’ Michael Adebowale is a diplomat.
He works for the Nigerian High Commission.”
People are claiming that Adebowale was an MI5 operative.
Lots of people claim that MI5 and MI6 are involved in dirty tricks and the “dark arts”.
Some say that MI6 killed spy-in-the-bag Gareth Williams.
Some say that Britain’s intelligence services blackmail VIP’s with compromising child-abuse pictures.
Even Queenie herself is petrified of her evil secret service spies.
” PAUL Burrell’s astonishing revelations in the Daily Mirror yesterday about his talk with the Queen stirred up fears over the work of Britain’s intelligence agencies.
She warned him: “There are powers at work in this country about which we have no knowledge.”
Her apparent allusion to dark forces raised concerns over the possibility that parts of national life could be run by an unelected, secret society.
Such claims have always been dismissed as the fantasies of conspiracy theorists.
Although she did not specify who she meant, many believe the Queen may have been referring to MI5 and MI6 – the national and international security services .
The Government could be drawn into the row, with questions in the Commons aimed at Home Secretary David Blunkett, in charge of MI5, and Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, responsible for MI6.
The Queen’s claim seems to suggest their work goes beyond anything sanctioned by the monarch, the highest authority in the land.
Princess Diana was convinced she was being constantly watched, even on her honeymoon.
Mr Burrell told how she ordered a private security firm to sweep her Kensington Palace apartments for bugs. The Squidgygate saga seemed to confirm her suspicions.
The notorious mobile phone conversation between the princess and lover James Gilbey were played at a frequency radio hams could pick up on two occasions. A similarly damaging explicit conversation between Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles was broadcast. On both occasions, Buckingham Palace made no attempt to investigate the source.
Conspiracy theories have also suggested that security services were somehow involved in Princess Diana’s death in Paris in 1997.
Similar suspicions about the assassination of US President John F Kennedy are centred on the work of the secretive CIA..
But the British establishment has always sniffed at theories surrounding our own security services.
Palace sources have tried to distance the Queen from Mr Burrell’s claims, saying she would never have discussed matters of national security with a butler.
But Mr Burrell, who remains loyal to the Queen, insisted: “She fixed me with her eye and made sure I knew she was being deadly serious.
“I had no idea who she was talking about. There were many she could have been referring to but she was clearly warning me to be vigilant. It was not a threat. It was sound advice. She had my interests at heart.”
The Queen may have been referring to one of these groups…
MI5: Supposed to be the secret eyes and ears of the Government.
Diana’s former bodyguard Ken Wharfe claimed MI5 was behind the Squidgygate tapes.
Her minder Barry Mannakee died in a motorbike crash in 1988. Friends of the police sergeant believe he was killed by MI5 for getting too close to the princess.
MI6: Its network of agents control thousands of spies. Dodi’s father Mohamed Al Fayed claims MI6 was involved in Diana’s death.
In 1993, former MI6 officer and spy James Rusbridger confirmed phone taps on the royals existed. He also claimed two members of the royal family enjoyed kinky bondage in 1994.
Two days later he was dead.
SPECIAL BRANCH: Officers specialise in undercover work, exposing plots against the state. They work with the royals and this year it emerged that frequencies used by officers can be picked up by radio hams.
CIA: Mohamed Al Fayed’s appeal to get the secret CIA files on the Paris car crash was rejected by a US court two years ago.
NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY: This US agency tracked Diana and Dodi on a yacht in Sardinia and then passed the details to MI6.
DEFENDERS OF THE REALM: Unidentified, self-appointed figures. Conspiracy theorists believe they identify threats and “nullify them”.
Who really controls Britain?
Who are Britain’s ‘dark forces’?
Why is Queenie scared of her own intelligence services?
Are we about to find out the truth after all these years?
We haven’t got a clue.
