Dear Richard Carey (BBC Complaints Department),
Your response to my complaint (Reference CAS-2542290-F26XPQ) goes nowhere near addressing my substantial allegation. You promise that no attempt was made to alter the voice of the individual in question, the so-called caller from Moscow, the so-called ex-pat Scot who was referred to by Louise White as ‘Ed’, a man we were told who has lived outside Scotland for many years, a lover who merely wants to get his wife from Russia into Britain. I am prepared to accept what you say about not changing the voice of the caller. However,…
The producers of Morning Scotland must have recognize the voice as one of the regular contributors to BBC Radio Scotland on that time-slot for many years now. It is beyond a shadow of a doubt former editor of Socialist Worker, and before that the SWP’s national secretary. His name is Chris Bambery.
Bambery is a police spy and probably has been for several decades. He worked hand-in-glove with other perjurers who are also police spies: specifically Frances Curran. I do not believe that the producers were unaware that this was a hoax call by someone trying to set up a fake identity for himself inside Russia. Given the insecurity of Edward Snowden, given Bambery’s attempt to frame his own comrades with perjury (Mike Gonzalez), given his role in trying to help the British state frame whistle-blowers, and start fist fights at bedroom tax protests, I think the license fee payer is owned an explanation as to what went on here, how much BBC staff were aware, and what role if any the Home Secretary has played in helping a police spy use the BBC to help a member of British Intelligence set up a fake identity in Russia at exactly the same time Edward Snowden fear for his life and safety.
I will be raising this matter with Stewart Maxwell MSP.

Dear Mr Delargy
Thank you for your correspondence. Your comments were passed to the Senior Producer, who has asked that I forward his response as follows:
“Thank you for getting in touch about Morning Call broadcast on 29th January 2014
We take calls on face value and good will. The programme follows our editorial guidelines and, within those, people are free to make any point they wish. Although it came from a withheld number, we had no reason to disbelieve the caller and the call did not breach our editorial guidelines in anyway. No attempt was made to change the voice pre, during or after broadcast.
I hope that this goes some way to answering your query and that you will continue listening to the programme in the future.”
Thank you, once again, for taking the time to contact us.
