Mind The Gap – This investigative documentary uncovers the 7/7 London Bombings.
This investigative documentary uncovers evidence that points to a high-level cover-up of the 7/7 London Bombings.. Ex-Counter Intelligence Officer David Shayler introduces a Bristol made documentary which challenges the official story of the London bombings. David Shayler’s biog: On graduating in 1989 David Shayler joined the Sunday Times. Six months later, he left the newspaper to set up his own student publication with a circulation of 25,000. In 1991, David joined MI5 as a counter-intelligence officer. In 1996, after being briefed about an MI6-funded operation to assassinate Colonel Gaddafi of Libya which killed innocent civilians he resigned from the service.
In August 1997, he submitted a series of articles blowing the whistle on his previous employers. He fled to France before he could be arrested. A year later, he was imprisoned with a view to extradition. The French court refused the request because David’s alleged offence was political. In 2000, David voluntarily returned to the UK. In 2002 he was tried and convicted under the Official Secrets Act and sentenced to six months in prison. Since his release, he has helped his partner Annie Machon, also a former MI5 officer, to write Spies, Lies and Whistleblowers, MI5, MI6 and the Shayler Affair, which details corruption and incompetence at the heart of the British intelligence establishment.
