“… you have an authoritarian regime and you find who the reformers are within that [regime] and work with them…”
Juliette Harkin, former BBC Media Action Project Manager
At whose bequest Juliette? Not mine!
Iran? UK? BP? Are we at again? Iran appears to be a mixture of deep rich cultural heritage plus arcane insane practices such as stoning women to death, but that does not give the UK license to interfere; just as we would not welcome a foreign nation state interfering into our home affairs.
Charity. NGO. Sustainable development agencies. When will the British tax payer wise up and cease consent to on-going interference by these subversive agents?

‘We are the philanthropic arm of Thomson Reuters, the world’s biggest news and information provider. We are registered as an independent charity both in the UK and in the USA….’
Independent my arse.
… and before that she worked for BBC Media Action:
This is a supposedly charitable organisation owned by the BBC, not funded by the BBC. It shares the BBC pension pot; is funded by the Foreign Commonwealth Office, the Department For International Development, the US State Department and US Agency For International Development, the €U, the UN, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and more…
Juliette Harkin, former BBC Media Action Project Manager and an expert on Syria states:
“… we [BBC Media Action] worked in 2004 with individuals within the [Syrian] ministry who wanted change and tried to get them to be the drivers of that. All media development work that has been done within Syria has, in my opinion, been predicated upon this idea that there can be change from within – you have an authoritarian regime and you find who the reformers are within that [regime] and work with them…”
This is subversion.
