Chris and Robbie

C – Robbie how are you brother?

R – I’m really good actually, it’s nice to speak to you. Your empathy and compassion really, really touched me. Before you pressed record I asked you how you were and you said I’m in paradise, and it’s all in there. I’m in content and I’ve got to contend. How do you get to paradise. Pain medication is fucking evil. I think drugs are the equivalent of a Ouija board and you don’t know what you’re opening up and I think when people talk about demons and sorting out their demons. I think there actual demons. I tell you what though it’s a fucking field day for the conspiracists with everything that’s going on. What I did straight away in this lockdown was rid myself of the mainstream media news because I understood it was inflaming my panic and paranoia and fear.

C – Why all the symbolism?

Prev 1 of 1 Next

Simon Mann is a British former Special Air Service (SAS) army officer and legendary condottiere (not mercenary as often wrongly labelled). Simon trained at Sandhurst and was commissioned into the Scots Guards. On leaving the military, he co-founded the private military company, Executive Outcomes and co-founded Sandline International with fellow ex-Scots Guards Colonel Tim Spicer in 1996, operating mostly in Angola and Sierra Leone. On 7 March 2004, Mann is alleged to have led the 2004 Equatorial Guinea coup d’état attempt. He was arrested by Zimbabwean police in Harare airport, along with 64 other private contractors – branded as ‘mercenaries’. Simon served three years of a four-year prison sentence in Zimbabwe and less than two years of a 34 years and four months sentence in Equatorial Guinea. Simon is now a much-sought-after public speaker and consultant.

S – No!

C – Well let me just say, one night in Johannesburg is like one night in Bangkok, just with less girls!…
