A National Disgrace, features Martin Webster chatting with Chris Thrall. In Iraq 2003, Corporal Martin Webster filmed fellow British soldiers ‘dealing with’ youths during a war. Two years later, a British newspaper obtained his footage and the story led to outrage across the world. In March 2007, Martin approached three filmmakers to tell his story.

Transcript from ‘A National Disgrace’ podcast.

Chris – I will hold my hand up and say when I first saw that footage, because of the power of the media, it really just seems like, ‘Oh my God, this is British soldiers behaving badly. You know, what are they doing oh lads, you’re letting us down. When I watched your documentary again, I just felt the way it had been completely spun and yes, all of the backstory and the context was stripped out to make it look like you were the biggest, you know what on the planet.

Martin – What was it all for? I’ve spent the last ten years with therapists trying to figure out who I am. You’re always constantly looking back and reviewing. Through ‘Diary of a disgraced soldier’, I couldn’t have made that film any better, it’s just the untouched frustration of what what I’ve been through.

Transcript from The British Military’s Dark Secret podcast.

A – I’d only really considered the impact that his actions, or lack of actions, had on my life after he passed away. I wasn’t actually free to judge him at all. I saw his pain and trauma but then when he wasn’t alive, it make me really think about how unsafe my childhood was and how I was honoring him in his death.

C – Let’s talk about his service because the Falklands is a big old thing for anyone to go through. Was he on the ground over there?

UK And EU Army? Our Orwellian Future | Podcast #159

‘Will UK military merge with EU Army?’ is the question I asked former para signaler, Mike McCarthy, a director of Veterans for Truth. Mike explains to me why the UK military has no choice but to become part of the EU army defence force. It has already been decided.

‘Will UK military merge with EU Army?’

‘Are we heading for a 1984-like Orwellian future’ and ‘will the UK military merge with EU Army?’ is the fascinating podcast chat Chris Thrall had with former parachute regiment signaler Mike McCarthy.

Transcript from ‘Will UK military merge with EU Army? Podcast #159

C – How are you?

M – Good my brother. I’ve just been out on the hills and I’ve spent my whole day up there, so it was a great. The weather started out as such a beautiful day here in southern Ireland and then the hail came down. So we had a hail storm. We had everything today. The weather was wonderful and great anyway.

C – It is so important to get out mate isn’t it and to make that connection with nature so we don’t get too freaking tunnel-visioned by all this technological, urban, ugliness.

M -You’ve got to be out rain or shine, every single day and yes it’s beautiful. I think it was Kurt Vonnegut whom said, ‘We’re here to have a good time and don’t let anyone tell you different’. Whatever we’re going through, this is the day we’ve been given and we should make it a good one. I try and do that everyday.

SAS Paras Royal Marines To Be REBRANDED EU! | #158

SAS Paras & Royal Marines To Be REBRANDED EU!

SAS Paras & Royal Marines To Be REBRANDED EU! We’re losing the control and identity of our UK armed forces to the European Defence Forces and the ‘global’ agenda. No one knows or cares!

Transcript snippet from ‘SAS Paras & Royal Marines To Be REBRANDED EU!’

C – Hello Dave and what have you got for me this week. Is the face of the Royal Marines changing for the better or worse?

D – Very good morning to you Chris and a big shout out to all the fellow bootnecks and frontline units there. Well we’ve sort of rounded the revelations made yesterday at the defence committee and we’ve had this integrated review finally being released. It’s full but of course what they’ve done over the previous months is this stuff keeps being drifted out in little snippets. Just as if it’s like a softening up exercise. So there’s several things happening in the same time frame. So let’s go with the Royal Marines and Stonehouse. We’ve got the same M.O. as drifting this stuff out in the press, so they want to shut Stonehouse. That’s the cultural centre of the Royal Marines. We’re seeing this gambit of a Rangers force coming in. The concept of this unification of our military was articulated by our permanent secretary back in 2015.

UK to lose autonomy of military and defence industry, even after Great Britain has left The European union.

UK To Lose Autonomy Of Military & Defence Industry

David Ellis and I discuss the extreme likelihood that the UK military will become a part of the EU Defence Force despite Brexit.

Transcript from ‘UK To Lose Autonomy Of Military & Defence Industry’

C – David how are you Sir?

D – Good morning Chris, how are you?

C – Yes mate good. I had an email recently from a former special forces veteran, that said I need to speak to you and I’m aware of your work because I think just being in this field you get to know what certain people are doing, especially the movers and shakers. Hence we’re having this chat. I think we share not just joint concerns about let’s call it the appropriation of our very loyal military, but I know you and I see at at a structural level which I why I welcome you onto the podcast. It’s quite difficult for me because I don’t like to talk about the good guys and bad guys, it’s just not that helpful. What I like to do is look at what’s happening in the world today. Why is it like this? Who is controlling it?

Stolen Valor Exposed The Truth Behind Walter Mitty

My most heroic guest to date helps me explore the truth behind veteran impersonation aka Water Mitty or Stolen Valor (valour – UK spelling)

Transcript snippet from ‘Stolen Valor Exposed | The Truth Behind Walter Mitty’ podcast

Chris and Ben

C – Ben, how are you brother?

B – I’m doing good how are you?

C – Running out of clever replies, that probably aren’t really that clever.

B – When someone asks me this at work or whatever my usual reply when someone asks me how are you? I answer loving life. No matter what type of day it is, it’s positive affirmation. Sometimes good is just as sufficient, but I think if you say that enough times it gets contagious and other people start to say it whether they mean it or not.

C – I don’t mean to be rude to my guests but they’ve got to sort out the way they fricking speak man. All this “I’m good”. This is England, we’re British and we’re very proud about that. We’re not nationalistic but we’re proud not to have to copy other countries. People can speak how they want, of course they can but I do think though. I think people who are easily swayed with their language just start saying what other people say. You know like this ‘passed’ thing instead of died. They use ‘passed’. I personally think there’s a lot to dissect there…

SAS Captain to Mercenary | Political Prisoner | Simon Mann

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.

C – Simon how are you Sir?

S – I’m good thanks.

C -You’re in Johannesburg aren’t you?

S – Yep, it’s lovely, normal, no lockdown, it’s lovely.

C – Yeah, wow, I was there when I took my trip to Mozambique, we obviously had to fly into South Africa. We stayed at a lodge in Joburg called Brown Sugar, do you know it?

S – No!

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