Comments on Wilderness Period : 1966B 


It was clear from very soon after I left M.I. that the legal agreement on which my departure was based was being grossly subverted.

There was no point in my considering taking legal action to enforce the agreement and obtain greater compensation because of its infringement I could not afford to do so and I did not then sufficiently understand what was taking placing place.  I could not explain the processes to others and crucially the training scheme was set up so that little or no convincing evidence was available.  It might just be possible nowadays, with the greater awareness of covert processes, psychological techniques, body language and the like, to convey what was taking place.  I think back then only a full judicial public enquiry would have stood a chance of exposing the scheme to public view.

An important question is "Who in the English Electric Group knew of the legal agreement?"

(Please note that the full text of the Agreement is set out in Marconi Instruments 1966A - Legalised Departure.)
