Extraordinary and Deliberate Lies from the Guardian

By Craig Murray | September 23, 2018

I am just back from a family funeral – one of a succession – and a combination of circumstances had left me feeling pretty down lately, and not blogging much. But I have to drag myself to the keyboard to denounce a quite extraordinary set of deliberate lies published in the Guardian about a Russian plot to spring Julian Assange last December.

I was closely involved with Julian and with Fidel Narvaez of the Ecuadorean Embassy at the end of last year in discussing possible future destinations for Julian. It is not only the case that Russia did not figure in those plans, it is a fact that Julian directly ruled out the possibility of going to Russia as undesirable. Fidel Narvaez told the Guardian that there was no truth in their story, but the Guardian has instead chosen to run with “four anonymous sources” – about which sources it tells you no more than that.

I have no idea who the Guardian’s “anonymous sources” are, but I know 100% for certain that the entire story of a Russian plot to extract Julian from the Embassy last Christmas Eve is a complete and utter fabrication. I strongly suspect that, as usual, MI6 tool Luke Harding’s “anonymous sources” are in fact the UK security services, and this piece is entirely black propaganda produced by MI6.

It is very serious indeed when a newspaper like the Guardian prints a tissue of deliberate lies in order to spread fake news on behalf of the security services. I cannot find words eloquent enough to express the depth of my contempt for Harding and Katherine Viner, who have betrayed completely the values of journalism. The aim of the piece is evidently to add a further layer to the fake news of Wikileaks’ (non-existent) relationship to Russia as part of the “Hillary didn’t really lose” narrative. I am, frankly, rather shocked.

  1. I used to subscribe to The Guardian, and generally, I learned more from the bloggers comments, than I did from the articles themselves. Now days, the Guardian doesn’t allow comments on ‘controversial stories’, and I find now, that it’s ‘just another rag’, to be dismissed with contempt.
    Is it any wonder that ‘Newspapers’ are held in utter contempt these days?

  2. In the US we have racketeering laws that involve conspiratorial behavior. Violators are subject to possibilities for jail time, fines and seizure of assets. Keep making the list of ‘naughty and nice’ so that when the bell rings for justice, these betrayers of humanity experience punishment they most certainly deserve.

  3. Acts of disgusting and criminal desperation from the powerful elites, particularly Theresa May, whose webs of lies are falling down quicker than Towers 1, 2 and 7 on false flag day September 11, 2001. Theresa May has offered zero evidence (she never had any) against Peskov and Boshirov since they were interviewed on RT, so after the Skripal false flag collapses it isn’t surprising Harding and Viner were instructed to come up with this newest nonsense.

    Again I say: What else is new? Old news pedaled as new news. How clever and diabolical.
