Transcript from ‘MI5 Spies, Lies & Whistleblowers’ podcast

Annie – ,The key point is to get the balancing act of oversight and accountability within the country from which they’re operating. I’m not trying to say they’re all evil. Rogue elements that go ahead and do things without trying to get accountability, create the problem. Intelligence agencies are operating outside government and democratic control. That means they can commit crimes with impunity.

If you’re talking about 9/11, I presume you are, David was very outspoken about that. I did take an interest in the very shallow waters around that and some very credible people came out of the intelligence agencies.

Chris and James

C – James, how are you brother?

J – Very well, good morning Chris, well it’s proper afternoon where you are.

C – Hey, the way my head is it could be morning, noon or night?

J – It doesn’t really matter to me at the minute with this Corona thing going on, I’m stuck in the house no matter what.

C – It kinds of bring home the importance of routine.

J – It gives me a lot of time to work on my writing.

C – Of course. I think writing and podcasting are the two disciplines the flourish under these conditions. I call it a fiasco.

J – It certainly does, I don’t have the technical skills down for this, but I’ve been participating in a lot of Zoom calls, more in this last year than in my whole entire life, which is quite a few!
