?Go woke, go broke? is being proven from Hollywood to Hull, says CJ Strachan. So why are so many small and medium-sized enterprises putting their staff through Equity, Diversity and Inclusion training?

Labour's Left is accusing Sir Keir of a "purge" after another party candidate was barred from standing in the General Election, this time for liking a series of posts on X that downplayed accusations of antisemitism.

Fake Activist spied on Campaign Group

category international | environment | news report author Wednesday April 09, 2008 02:21author by Ms. Moneypenny Report this post to the editors

amateur spy was "more Austin Powers than James Bond"

In Britain, a paid spy has been uncovered among the activists in the PLANE STUPID Campaign.

PLANE STUPID is a loose network of groups taking action against airport expansion and aviation's climate impact. The agent claimed to be a recent graduate who was interested in helping out with direct actions, protests and awareness-raising. He contacted the campaign after the high-profile Heathrow Climate camp last summer.
Toby Kendall- He used a false name and couldn't provide ID

Fellow campaigners noticed that he was not on the electoral register, and when they asked him for some ID he couldn't provide any. He offered instead to get a letter from one of his old college lecturers.

Once they had an idea of which college he'd attended, activists emailed a picture of him to someone who is still a student there. They quickly identified him and provided his real name. Surprisingly, the spy is actually listed on the internet as working as an "analyst" for a security company called C2i (Command Control Intelligence).

While this spy is obviously something of an amateur, what is certain is that he won't be the last undercover operator to infiltrate Plane Stupid. There are probably other, better, spies embedded in the campaign already.

What is also certain is that other campaign groups are regularly spied on and infiltrated by private security agencies both in Britain and here in Ireland.

Climate action group Plane Stupid has been targeted by a professional espionage agency.

Oxford-educated Toby Kendall, 24, an employee of aerospace security consultants C2i International , infiltrated and spied on Heathrow campaign groups across London for a year. He was immediately suspected and following a Plane Stupid investigation he was last week confronted and exposed by a Plane Stupid activist. Read More: http://tinyurl.com/5wca8t
