DEAR Stephen Kinnock MP,
Allow me to agree with you that England’s footballers should wear armbands at the World Cup - although for a far different reason from the one you suggested.
You have been reported as saying that the England team should send out a message about the bad behaviour of Vladimir Putin’s Russian regime and, in particular, the alleged murder of Alexander Litvinenko and the alleged attempted murders of Sergei and Julia Skirpal.
(I note in passing that the latter two are still alive and therefore black armbands may not be entirely appropriate).
Let’s take a major jump and suppose that Putin’s regime was indeed responsible for these actions on British soil. I presume you believe these were carried out by Russia’s intelligence services rather than Putin himself hopping over to England in his spare time with the poison….
Ok, so you believe this provides England and other countries competing in the football competition with the high moral ground.
In which case could you ease my concerns over the conduct of British intelligence services in recent years?
Can you say with any conviction that we do not carry out any state assassinations in England and abroad?
I raise the issue of the highly professional looking murder of TV presenter Jill Dando on her own doorstep in April 1999.
Could you perhaps inform me how the police investigation is progressing?
Things do seem to have gone a little quiet since suggestions were made that the British establishment may have benefited from her assassination.
You will also be aware that a substantial number of British people are unhappy with official explanations of the deaths of Princess Diana in 1997 and David Kelly in 2003.
More than a few qualms have been raised over the alleged suicide of Robin Cook in 2005.
One common theme linking all these deaths together, Mr Kinnock, was that they all took place during the reign of New Labour and Tony Blair.
It really did seem to be an unusually dangerous time for anyone in public life who spoke out about the way our country was being run.
Perhaps to edit the words of a very famous religious figure ‘he who is without sin should wear the black armband ’?
Coming even closer to home, Mr Kinnock, some of the behaviour of your family concerns me more than a little.
Currently you seem to be personally embroiled in making it very difficult for Britain to leave the European Union despite a democratic public vote demanding we should do some two years ago.
Could this by chance be related to the extraordinary amount of money your parents have made from the EU?
Whilst on the subject of politics, perhaps you could enlighten us on the role of the Committee of 300 of which your mother is reported to be a member?
Do some of the world’s most powerful folk merely meet annually to sip tea and catch their breath as seemingly suggested by your parliamentary colleague Kenneth Clarke, a fellow member, when asked about his involvement at the annual Bilderburg conference?
May I respectfully conclude, Mr Kinnock, that in the light of the issues I have raised our footballers would make more of a moral point wearing black armbands in Russia over the death of socialism in this country and the catastrophe that was New Labour.
And that’s without mentioning the war!
