This Funzing Experience:

An alternative perspective on the Middle East

Confused about the endless wars in the Middle East, the terrorism, the refugee crisis, the suspect “fake news”?

Me too, so let’s explore this together.

Ever since I was involved in an MI5 whistleblowing scandal in the 1990s about an illegal MI6 assassination plot against the now-deposed Colonel Gaddafi of Libya, I have been watching developments across the region with great attention, working with other intelligence whistleblowers and journalists to try to get a feel for what might really be going on there behind the headlines.

So what is the history? What are the current competing interests and why? How is this represented in the news? And what can we, as concerned citizens, do about all this?

Venue: 177 Hoxton Street

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

Funzing Talks is a new concept which aims to re-invent your after work drinks. We've pulled together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire your evenings.

Held in a hand picked range of bars across London, a Funzing Talks event makes the perfect after work activity.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives over a beer with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!

Please note: this talk may be filmed for use as a short highlights video on Funzing.com & social media channels
