According to Chris Bambery’s twitter account, he lives in Scotland. However, like the quantum zombie in the Shrodinger’s cat thought experiment, Comrade Bambery exhibits the ability to occupy two contradictory states simultaneously. He has, he claims, lived in Russia for several years with a girlfriend he met at Edinburgh University.
Now, I don’t completely discount the possibility that I have made a mistake. Maybe that wasn’t his voice on BBC Radio Scotland’s Morning Call with Louise White today. But, let’s be frank, it was. He knows it was. So does Louise White, Kay Adams, John Wight who appeared on the show using his real name, and thousands of socialists who are familiar with his voice.
Why did Louise White pretend he was someone else, someone called Ed? Louise says she hopes the BBC wasn’t paying for the call. So do I. I would very much resent the license fee payers money being wasted on this individual who tried to frame two SWP members with having committed perjury in order to protect David Cameron and at least one other asset of British Intelligence: Frances Curran.
What is Chris Bambery doing in Russia? Why is the BBC trying to help give him a new identity? Why not expose the fact that he is working undercover in Russia? What about Edward Snowden? He has expressed anxieties about his life and liberty being in danger from a rabble whipped up by supporters of the NSA, CIA etc. Does Edward Snowden have anything to fear from Chris Bambery having ferreted himself inside Russia using a fake identity? Did he resort to a fake passport? If he did, was Prime Minister David Cameron and/or Home Secretary Theresa May awarded plausible deniability, in other words keeping one or both of them out of the loop, so they can say they had no idea this sort of thing was going on? Or have either or both of them been asked to sanction the use of fake passports, doing that in order to have Chris Bambery plan a kidnapping plot, similar to the one used by Israel’s state terrorists Mossad dragging whistle-blower Mordechai Vanunu into solitary confinement for decades?
