My three comments following the article Portland spies undone by a giant lighter by Ben McIntyre in The Times, 24 September 2019, in order of appearance.
The West is completely blind to subversive activities in the political and social sphere which I would call “the narrative management and control”. There is no need to steal secrets, which are handed over freely to those masquerading as allies.
Radek Sikorski, who was at Oxford with David Cameron and Boris Johnson, was sent to the UK by the Polish Communist authorities under the cover of a student trying to improve his English.
His application to Oxford Uni. was supported by Zbigniew Pełczyński, an Oxford professor with warm ties to Polish Communists.
Later, Sikorski worked as a journalist in the UK, posing as a Thatcherite. Ha ha. After his return to Poland, he was an MP and Minister of Defense, Speaker of the Parliament. Today he is a member of the European Parliament.
One of many.
He continues to serve the same people. He is frequently the go-to person in the British media on Poland and other issues.
His journalist wife, Anne Applebaum, should have noticed. However, judging by the nonsense she wrote about contemporary Poland, she is part of the same game.
I suppose this is too difficult to understand by those educated at Eton and Oxford. In other words, the lesson of the Cambridge Four [should be “Cambridge Five”] has not been learned.
The Communists completely outmaneuvered the West. The fairy tale of Communism’s fall is still believed and taught. The Communist lies and disinformation are now part of student curricula at Oxford and Cambridge.
When dealing with this lot one should assume that everything they say is a lie unless proven otherwise.
The aim of those mirrors is to jam the signal and its source.
I posted the following comment under the article in The Times in the morning of 14 Sept. 2019, The two Britains that exasperate and enchant the resty of the world,
“Radek Sikorski, whom the author quotes, was trained for his future political career by the Communists. He had a privileged life in his youth and was selected to be among future top cadres by the Communists themselves
Few hours later, in the afternoon, you could read the echo of that comment on Twitter. A group of people, including Radek Sikorski, got involved in a bit absurd exchange (in Polish) using a fake excuse. There was foul language in some of the comments. It is interesting to note that many of the keywords from that exchange fit my profile. Let me quote in translation:
Doctor of Physics (I have a PhD in Physics)
Adam Mickiewicz University (the institution, where I worked for 19 years)
Wroclaw (I was a student in Wroclaw)
There are other relevant keywords.
To an average observer this Twitter exchange may seem nothing special. A more careful observer would at least have a sense of ‘something not being right’ and take note.
