My comment on Roger Boyes’ article Don’t be surprised at Poles returning home in The Times, 15 October 2019.

Concentration camp Poland

My third comment following the article Benefits boom pushes Polish populists to victory by Oliver Moody in The Times, 14 October 2019.

Oka flowing wide in the Vatican

My second comment following the article Benefits boom pushes Polish populists to victory by Oliver Moody in The Times, 14 October 2019.

In October 2004, the … Read more

Communist Santa Claus

My comment following the article Benefits boom pushes Polish populists to victory by Oliver Moody in The Times, 14 October 2019. “Lech Walesa, 76, a national hero in the struggle against communist rule” Lech Walesa was the leader of a fake opposition to Communism.

Labour of the many, not the few

My comment on Marc Bennett’s article Elite Russian spy unit ‘given job of sowing chaos in Europe’ in The Times, 10 October 2019.

OGPU and the army

Ben MacIntyre’s article Did MI6 let Cold War spy Kim Philby escape to Moscow? in The Times, 28 September 2019. Here is my comment posted on the newspaper’s website.

Communist-trained ‘Thatcherite’

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 … Read more
