Conspiracy Corner – The Berezovsky/Litvinenko Connection

Every Thursday, about 8:15am, Matthew talks with Ethan and Zac on 95bFM’s “Breakfast Show” about conspiracy theories.

…for lovers, for dreamers and me.

Sorry about that, folks; I’m fair bubbling with some good news I can’t in good conscience report for another week, so random acts of musical association will have to sit in for [INFORMATION REDACTED].

Last week we talked about the interesting development in the on-going story of the assassination of Alexander Litvinenko: the suspicious death of his associate Boris Berezovsky, the former Russian oligarch-turned-poltical exile.

Tomorrow I’m going to talk about Christopher Monckton and his tour of our shaky isles. He’s here promoting Anthropogenic Climate Change Scepticism in what is the midst of our most terrible drought in quite some time. Coincidence or conspiracy?

Well, coincidence, obviously, but not for the kind of reasons Monckton would advance.
