Going Underground Or Just Going Missing ?

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

A couple of years ago I put together a few notes for an article
about people who have to go and live underground,
or just go missing.

The idea of this article was to examine just how people might live
this way within an increasingly networked society.

In my notes I referred to Bob Robinson as B,
although I now know that his real name is Bob Lambert.

I never got much further than penning these few notes.

It is highly unlikely that I will ever complete this piece,
but you might find these notes of some interest.

The Networked Society.

What ever happened to B?

We can all tell stories about people we spent some time with in ones younger years, but with whom we have lost contact.

B was someone that I knew as a political activist over a
quarter of a century ago. Over time I moved on and lost
contact with him.

Deep Cover & Police Lies - Betrayers Anonymous.

I’ve the kind of brain which tends not to remember numbers,
but just once in a while a figure will stick with me.

Way back in 1970 there were 1 million people listed on Special
Branch files.

How large are these files now ?

I have no way of knowing.

In 1968 the Special Demonstration Squad was established by the
Special Branch to
“provide intelligence about protests and demonstrations .”

This unit included a group of full-time undercover police officers,
or
Agent Provocateurs.

We now know a lot about many of these undercover cops who
were active from 1984 onwards.

What we don’t know is just how many of there undercover cops
were in place during the late 1960s , the 1970s, and early 1980s.

Betrayers Anonymous.

I have been politically active since 1968,
and thus I must of meet some of these individuals.

Who might they of been?

I just don’t know.

With time it is going to become harder and harder to identify any
of the earlier undercover members of the Special Demonstration
Squad.

I can now only wonder just whom they might of been.

Just whom did I  ( and others ) trust,
only to feed lies,
while we were also spied upon ?

It leave me with a very nasty feeling that I and others have been
used.

If there is going to be any internal police or public enquiry in to
the covert activities of the Special Demonstration Squad,
then it should go back to 1968,
&
the results must be made public.

We all have the right to know.

Deep Cover & Police Lies - Bob.

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Saturday was a very strange day for me,
as exposing an undercover cop to a conference of 300 people is
not exactly something which one does every day of the week.

Yesterday the following news story was flashed upon the front
page of the Guardian newspaper: -

Progressive academic Bob Lambert is former police spy.

Since then the story has been picked up by the rest of the media.

For example:
in the Daily Telegraph & Daily Mail,
which are two rags which I would not normally read.

In many ways what might now happen to Bob could be
considered a personal tragedy.

It should never be forgotten that he told lies,
spied upon my friends & comrades,
and directed other undercover police to do the same.

I was betrayed by Bob.

We were all betrayed by Bob.

Yet what Bob did was sanctioned at the very highest level of the
state.

I could write a lot more about Bob & the whole issue of the police
undercover work,
but there are a lot of journalists who are now about to do the same.

Thus I’ll not return to this subject until there really something new
to reveal.
