I love conspiracy theories. I used to be a big fan of the X-Files & not only because Gillian Anderson was in it & I loved Kevin Costner’s JFK even if you can grow a beard during it.
The latest one appears to be over the death of GMP Chief Constable, Michael Todd.
It appears to stem from comments made by one of the Mountain Rescue Team who has been interviewed as saying that normal protocols weren’t followed when people first became aware that Todd might be somewhere in the Welsh mountains. Things like, not a full team being sent out, people going to the wrong location. The killers in this one are the sighting of a Chinook helicopter (search & Rescue use Seakings) and the sighting of “Men in dark suits were swarming all over the place. They were not in uniform. We took it they were spooks – Government agents. They weren’t normal plainclothes detectives, and they didn’t introduce themselves to us.” Clearly these were top secret agents of the CIA, MI5 and/or any other government unit which doesn’t exist, possibly Chinese trained killers who had ditched their blue & white trackies & just happened to be in the hills training for the Olympic Torch run.
Chinooks only appear when there is top level sneaky beaky stuff going on like them crashing into Welsh Mountains full of intelligence officers, wait a minute, wasn’t Michael Todd investigating that case??? Case Closed MI5 responsible.
You can find more details of the conspiracy theory at Grough’s Blog. Postman Patel, also discusses the case several times. Codshit also discusses the case – at some length (to be honest I haven’t read it all yet as I’ve had to bandage my chin when I hit it on the edge of my desk falling asleep). There’s another one at Eclectic Katie Smith.
Perhaps more anon, in the meantime I’m off to dust down my poster of Gillian Anderson & warm up the plastic laminator.
(Oh, you have to sing the title of this entry to the theme tune of the X-fles)
