'By the end of my evening with David Icke my jaw had dropped so far it was no longer in this dimension.
The king of conspiracy theories was “red-pilling” - to use a Matrix reference - around 1,000 of us at the packed-out Southport Theatre and Conference Centre on Saturday April 14.
It was a much-needed wake-up call that brought into focus the apparent random chaos of the world.
Icke suggests there is no randomness and that world leaders and - more importantly - those who run these politicians from behind the scenes are psychopaths and liars trying to edge humanity towards another world war.
He explains the game is fixed, using the analogy of football - with the two sides being the right and left of politics. To ensure the outcome you want, you have to be in control of both sides.
And he tracks this back through American politics, claiming Bush Jnr, Obama, and now Trump - despite flips from Republican to Democrat and back again - are all pushing the same agenda of regime change in the Middle East, something set out as a goal in the early 2000s by a document called The Project for the New American Century.
Icke spends most of his four-hour show bombarding us with facts built up over 30 years of his research and then joins up the dots, showing us how governments are connected to social media (the greatest surveillance technology ever created, he claims), who are connected to multi-billion dollar financiers who are connected to the media giants who are connected to secret societies who are connected to the CIA and weapons technology developers.
The wars in the Middle East start to make sense when he speaks. In Libya, the West arms the rebel groups, waits for Colonel Gadaffi to kick back, and then bombs the hell out of the country to bring about regime change.'
