I’m on my way to Russia now, but, I’d prepared for the UK not to allow me to leave, given the political climate there now – and actually I was more than in the mood to turn my full attention, and reportage to the absolute debacle, festering pit of dishonesty, and deceit, that is UK politics, and the manifest problems in UK society right now. However, that will have to wait, for now.
As it was, while others passed through customs at Dover in a minute, I was detained for half an hour. Asked where I was going, to which I answered, entirely truthfully, Luxembourg, then Russia. What I’d be doing there – filming reportage– for how long – I’d decide that later, where to after that – I’d decide that later.
However, that was that, I departed the UK, and I’m now well on my way to Russia. I’ll most likely be back in the UK after the World Cup 2018, with lots, lots of work to come before that, from this part of the world.
A little while ago, I was contacted by the Sunday Times to give comments on my involvement in the Anna Ziuzina / Barry Pring case. I don’t trust the Sunday Times, or their ‘journalist’ James Gillespie – just a standard western prostitute of the press, and it was clear they had already decided the narrative of their article.
I was sure that Gillespie (pictured) would simply take the parts of my answers which suited his pre-set script, so this is how I replied – we’ll have a look at it, then the Sunday Times fake news.
My reply in full:
Thanks James, sorry I was just busy and didn’t get around to it, am out of the country now in any case. Let me answer these for you – please either publish my answers to all your questions, in full, or do not include or mention me in your article at all. If you edit or abridge any of my answers below, you will accept a claim of £100,000 damages against the Sunday Times for misrepresentation, and defamation of character. I will donate this all to a children’s home in Lutugino, Donbass.
Just to be clear, James – your publishing anything apart from everything I have written to you below accepts liability from Sunday Times to pay £100,000 to a children’s home in Lutugino, Donbass – of which I will give you full details. I will not benefit from this transaction in any way, the funds will be transferred directly to the children’s home.
All my answers are below. If you misrepresent me, I will publish them in full, for public record, in addition to the above damages.
