Lies, bribes and Wikileaks – Ben Fogle on Chagos
Our patron Ben Fogle had a great article in yesterday’s Telegraph titled ‘My fight for the forgotten islanders’
He tells the whole sordid Chagos story, how he ended up getting involved in the campaign, and how he felt duped after being persuaded to support the Chagos marine reserve – which Wikileaks revealed to have been a sneaky way for the government to undermine the islanders’ chances of getting home.
“We must not allow ourselves to be dazzled by ‘green’ policy, blinding us to the bigger picture,” he writes. Hear hear.
