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.
