Follow @JohnPlatinumG On Monday I mentioned Atlantic Bridge, a pseudo educational charity set up to fund, among other things, Werritty's trips with the Minister of Defence, Liam Fox, trips he should not have actually been on since he had not been vetted by Whitehall. Atlantic Bridge, whose honorary president was Margaret Thatcher, was financed by Jewish businessmen until it was closed down by the Charity Commission. Today Craig Murray has once again broken a piece of news the type of which very rarely gets seen in the newspapers or on television. Quite rightly he asks where people get their news, because in this day and age they are not getting the whole news. Himself a former ambassador to Uzbekistan, Craig Murray has repeatedly and determinedly questioned the goings on of ministers and ambassadors and in particular the relationship between Matthew Gould the British (Jewish) ambassador to Israel. The interests an ambassador should be pursuing are those of the country he represents, but increasingly it seems that Matthew Gould's main interest lies in his support for Israel's stance on waging war in Iran, a country in which Gould formerly worked as Deputy Head of the Division in Tehran at the British Embassy.
This latest revelation regards requested information under a freedom of information request to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. His request was responded to but the documents requested were only commented upon, and copies were not actually sent to the former ambassador. It is clear from Craig Murray's persistence that Gould and Werrity have met together with David Miilband, and also with William Hague, in Gould's former roles as speechwriter and private secretary. Murray raises the question of the role of Werritty at these meetings, since none of them was minuted, and Secretaries of State are also heads of MI6. He speculates, quite rightly, as to whether Werritty was acting in liason with other secret services like MOSSAD.
