Assassination conspiracy theories (wikipedia) on murders of senior British politicians.
Kevin Cahill, an Irish investigative journalist, claims (Airey) Neave was on the verge of a massive overhaul of the security services, possibly involving a merger of MI5 and MI6 and arising from his belief in corruption in the security services.
Cahill suggests a link between Neave’s murder and Sir Christopher Sykes’ murder and the attempted murder of Christopher Tugendhat in December 1980. Cahill claims that Neave would have been head of the combined security services with Sykes and Tugendhat as his deputies, with Sykes responsible for foreign operations and Tugendhat responsible for home operations.
Cahill claims to have had a conversation with a drunken Neave on St. Patrick’s Day 1979 in the foyer of the Irish embassy in London. Cahill had left a party and was waiting for a taxi. He saw Neave in the room and introduced himself to him as an admirer. Cahill claims that Neave was inebriated and responded “quite out of the blue” by saying “There are going to be changes here, big changes, soon. There is going to be cleaning of the stables…There has been serious corruption.”
Neave then said that there was “no use playing games. We have to win…We will win when the [corruption] is sorted out. Count on that.” Cahill found Neave’s remarks surprising because he seemed internally preoccupied with the UK, with his Northern Ireland brief “almost a sideline”. Cahill also thought that Neave’s mention of corruption meant Soviet penetration.
Who was Neave trying to stop? The link between Romano Prodi and the FSB (KGB) shows that Russian intelligence and the EU have worked closely on occasions.
Litvinenko and Scaramella were trying to reveal some of these links recently. Scaramella is being held in Italy by Prodi and threatened with prosecution for revealing secrets. Litvinenko’s been eleminated already.
Litvinenko had already revealed that Prodi was the KGB’s main agent in Italy, and there is no doubt a lot more we could be told about Prodi’s role as head of the EU Commission.
Was the Irish situation used as a proxy by the KGB/EU to demolish Britain’s determination to remain independent? Was Maggie’s attempted assassination in Brighton also more than just an ‘Irish’ terrorist situation?
She was determined to avoid signing the Masatricht Treaty, and ensure Britain’s survival.
