Stranger than fiction.

I'm grateful to Henry for pointing me in the direction of the Lobster revelations about possible American funding of the Gang of Four and SDP. I don't know how plausible this is and I tend to be a bit cynical about many conspiracy theories but then again look at the surprising things revealed about the past every time a new batch of archived government records are made available. Today it was Hitler Youth cycling (spycling) holidays in UK, exchange visits with Walmington On Sea Scouts and Baden Powell being courted by Hitler. And there was I thinking it was all reef knots and picking stones out of horses hooves.
