This Funzing Experience:
LDN Talks @ Night: with former MI5 whistleblower and author Annie Machon.
Love him or loathe him, Donald Trump's election as US President has certainly put a ginger tom cat amongst the elite American pigeons.
The push-back from the American establishment began as soon as he became the Republican nominee and has increased pace over the last couple of months. The designated villain-in-chief: Russia.
Wild claims of "Russia hacking the elections" have become established, if evidence-lite, fact. Are they true? If not, why and how are they being made, and what is the motivation behind the allegations?
Using her experience as a former British intelligence officer as well as her current work with notable CIA, NSA and FBI whistleblowers, Machon will attempt to unravel this modern Gordion knot.
Doors will Open at 7pm, The talk will begin promptly at 7.30pm.

Past Funzing Participants:
Annie was interesting but it was really hard to follow her thread if you didn't already know a lot about the topic
The venue was a bit noisy - staff coming in and out, stacking glasses etc. Also, there wasn't actually that much on Russian hacking, both me and the person I went with both described the talk as 'propaganda' rather than interesting insight.
Good talk, enjoyed the evening.
Annie was very interesting. I left during the break though as was seated behind a plllar and I didn't pay £15 to stare at the wall whilst your photographer had taken over a whole booth!
