Strange things I come across some days.
David Cameron’s speech had some glowing words for Harry Beckhough, saying:
“Harry joined our party in 1929 to fight Stafford Cripps.
Since then, across 81 years and 21 elections, Harry has been with us. When Churchill warned of an iron curtain, Harry was with us. When this country had never had it so good, Harry was with us. When a lady refused to turn, Harry was with us.
This year, when we fought the general election, Harry – aged 96 – was there, manning the loudhailer on the battle bus.”
I’d never heard of Beckhough, but he seems to have been an interesting character, who worked as a code-breaker at Bletchley Park in WW2. Even more interestingly:
He is the author of several books including an autobiography Thinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and books about Germany’s Fourth Reich as he believes the Nazis continued their evil work after the end of the second world war, abandoning the swastika in public and laundering the money they looted from Europe to create a secret financial and industrial empire. No longer using panzer tanks but finance capital to ‘buy up’ their enemies and take them over that way instead. He is a staunch anti EU campaigner as he believes an undemocratic EU promotes this Nazi power today.
This is something I can almost believe these days, given that much of what is happening these days (e.g. smoking bans) has always struck me as thoroughly Nazi in character, even if it isn’t being forced on us by stormtroopers. And I say as much quite frequently.
A bit of poking around on the web turned up Harry Beckhough speaking.
Well, quite a lot of it was about the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers and the Iluminati, which is the sort of thing that instantly turns me off. But much of what he said made perfect sense. Britain’s political class have been betraying their country. Beckhough reckoned they’d all been bought. “All of our leaders [since Edward Heath] have betrayed us.”
Which would, of course, include the same David Cameron who was lauding Beckhough in 2010. And whom Beckhough was out campaigning for.
Anyway, I watched the video with interest, because here was someone from WW2 British intelligence with a very long view of events, and not to be dismissed lightly as some Tory backwoodsman. I may not have believed everything he said, but I agreed with the broad thrust of most of it.
Ten years ago, I wouldn’t have agreed with any of it. But now…
