London in the late seventies into the eighties, for the intelligence services, was a place of great concern.
The K.G.B. had had a series of penetration successÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s with both the M.O.D, Admiralty and British armaments factories, while the U S senate allowed American fund raising and arms supply to continue to the Irish mainland, even after the Thatcher agreement,
This verbal contract between Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan, was said in return for the bombers attacking Libya leaving from British soil, putting the British people in the firing line for any reprisals, the U.S.A would stop the NORAID funding for the I.R.A from reaching Irish soil.
But the U.S.A went back on their word and the funding and bombing continued.
This meant that the Soviet arms and technical advice and assistance was still being used by the I.R.A against the British, in their bombing campaigns etc.
So, this was the backdrop for a very strange incident on a large British Rail underground station, where last thing at night before the station closed, searches were made by staff to make sure no bombs were left on the station.
A senior member of the rail staff, discovered an abandoned carrier bag under a seat, and taking it to the small lost property office at the end of the platform was shocked to see the photos were of several top members of society involved in an orgy, many of the photos were of a well known Ã¢â‚¬Å“grannies favoriteÃ¢â‚¬Â male singer in saucy womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s clothing among others, and young boys in various poses with top politicians, including a nautical prime minister with a weakness for boys in sailor suits.
A short while later, two M.I.6 men turned up and demanded the bag of pictures, which minus a couple, were duly handed over, the story was that the singer realized the photos were gone, and he was then told by the K.G.B that they had the photos and he would be their A.O. I ( agent of influence) in the pop world to influence young people to favour socialism and Soviet foreign policy, or the photos would be published.
The singer who was known for his clean image was hysterically threatening suicide.
During the next week I saw one of the intelligence men involved who told me that the Soviets had organized several satanic orgies across the capital, and that other people had also been blackmailed, whom I must not name.
When the British forces came back from the Falklands, the London brothel keeper, Lindie St. Claire who supplied girls and boys to these orgies, offered the Falklands returnees the use of her girls for free in thanks from the nation, a down market daily covered the story, in which beautiful girls of the night would service those single soldiers in real need.
What the paper did not cover is that in her large hidden basement dungeon, some of the same high flyers were secretly filmed in various activities for blackmail purposes, for use by, I think, our intelligence services.
The same game plan was used by the soviets who believed that Lord Geoffrey Archer was being groomed top take over from Margaret Thatcher, who at that time was certainly the golden boy, his weakness was for beautiful women, and he had several delicious creatures on the go, the Soviets orchestrated the Monica Coghlan affair to their own advantage, and had plans for releasing news of more salacious and occult stuff from his circle of acquaintances, including weird pictures of a man who would dress up as a kinky archbishop for parties, with a well known London underworld criminal.
The upshot was that the press got hold of the story and archer fell from grace,
Monica was killed in a car crash some months later, the Soviets came out on top with smearing and getting rid of Archer, K.G.B. operative Alexandr Feliksov was ecstatic !
Grantchester, Archers family home was certainly either watched bugged or both.
The K.G.B masterminds of all this, Gen. Leonid Sherbashin and Yuri Andropov, who endorsed Margaret ThatcherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s monetarist guru at that time, Nobel Prize winner Milton Friedman, with his theories of buying cheaper from abroad , under the rules of the global marketplace, which meant closing British heavy industry, so we lost our coal mines motorcar motorbikes and ship building industries, we invented the television radio camera and the hovercraft, manufacture of which all went abroad.
In closing the mines, in many communities these men are still unemployed 30 years after, families broke up, crime and alcoholism was rife, and the bringing in of the insidious V.A.T tax meant many small businessÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s joined them in going to the wall, this financial hemorrhaging of the economy was only superseded by the recent huge number of foreign workers here now who send their earnings home, and the deliberate government people smuggling and export of call center, medical records insurance and police calls with paper handling and pen-pusher jobs abroad.
The British economic ruination was a top K.G.B priority, and the London I.R.A bombs, and the free market economy was claimed as among their big successÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s.
