in the late sixty's rather than a tory sleigh in the i think you got to be hauled in the in the late sixties rather than a tory sleigh in the i think you got to be quite old quite. well in terms of memory but when i think it's really because he and i've got a pretty sleazy bit of an issue into the age cemetery and agent sergeants get them it's beautifully them kept. but it's futile such a long time ago and only but it's all such a long time ago and only old people like me remember. electric me room but the little un of the senate said in the gulf said in september claiming that the brits claim being the bad maybe the complete visit in. may be complicit in war crime war and do you. think the think that it is the
10:37 am
difficult and i felt goal for you going to sell for unicef i know oxfam has been particularly on the line about attacking government i know oxfam has been particularly on the line about attacking government is it difficult for n.g.o.s right now to remain politically impartial in such a is it difficult for n.g.o.s right now to remain politically impartial in such a conflict it is difficult and at this point i will take off my unicef at the spirit allowed to do them for it is difficult and at this point i will take off my unicef at spirit allowed to do that i mean allowing myself to do that i think we've reached a point but yes i mean allowing myself to do that i think we've reached a point 1st sadly not not right for the but the but the of the unions have had little. wear and then we have just 6 years proceeds to go to impose their total present total ban on an arm set on as art of the subtleties to the days.

10:42 am
and secluded the security council and the calderon. military already where we're. for a report have said that the british sent a liberal and therefore a lot of people said it is odd but it is. that's a demand vested in what we do not you will not be able to. do without it without that help they want to be held to be a double act that is what i. to conduct that massive strikes on yemen. the main sort of main socially important. was blocked. off. why it was wise to.
10:43 am
form an international investigation team to be sent into yemen you see the british government says national investigation team to be sent into yemen you see the british government says it wants to sell more arms to saudi arabia which of course are then used to bomb it wants to sell more arms to saudi arabia which of course are then used to bomb yemen they back something called the joint incident assessment team and yemen they back something called the joint incident assessment team and i know the united nations is criticize them but they they say for instance the bombing of an m.s.f. i know the united nations is criticize them but they they say for instance the bombing of an m.s.f. hospital was a mistake where is i think you in the hospital was a mistake where is i think you and others claim that there is a deliberate attempt at killing civilians by others claim that there is
10:44 am
a deliberate attempt at killing civilians by british back governments in yemen i don't believe it could be critics back governments in yemen i don't believe it could be called a mistake because there will actually should not be i mistake. a mistake because there will actually should not be i mistake to try to get to a hospital. i'm well aware that the. hospital get to a hospital. i'm well aware that the m.s.f. hospital here in yemen marked on as was their code in it because they're here in yemen and mocked as was their coordinates out of it being given to saudi arabia and the saudi led coalition i believe that that's out of it being given to saudi arabia and the saudi led coalition i believe that that's already out actually actually actually use it as you would in this court decided to give. but it didn't get it
10:45 am
delivered into the thought of you to do so elizabeth ultimately they had to get those also because they have to get out to get some sun as the city of the heart out of. with a bullet and starts a bomb. i believe said he believes that he yet is a. thought it is his own to go there. and it's inside of him in many many says it is. all roads all in vain for us to stretch out up our his power to stay just in the east end the war in yemen or in am i can actually is a big mistake on a night can do actually should not. and actually is a big mistake on a night can do actually should not. be and this and this world in yemen more than 15000 has been killed by direct it is that i and this and this world in yemen more than 15000 has been killed by direct strike 280000 give many civilians many of them children have died 280000 give many civilians many of them children have died from
10:46 am
but event of a disease like malaria and put it out unicef have saved one child die every night for them but event of a disease like malaria and put it out unicef have saved one child die every 10 minutes because of those but even to build diseases that has actually only come after the c 10 minute because of those but even to build diseases that has actually only come after this over the war on blockade on yemen so i believe that yemenis will not follow the war on blockade on yemen so i believe that yemenis will not forget what they might kingdom has done to them because if there was no support tonight forget what they might kingdom has done to them because if there was no support tonight to condemn all the us i don't think that's how the war against yemen will all the us i don't think that's how the war against yemen well it sounds well from here doctors without borders may not like them but who is there in the u.k. back joint you made some. from here doctors without borders may not like them but

10:59 am
a book about mom and you're welcome back to going underground i know it's 2019 but a book about my own bat and you're still found it difficult as you say in the book to get some of that and you're still found it difficult as you say in the book to get some of the offish. well papers from the government that have still not been released about the official papers from the government that have still not been released about mountbatten yes i mean there's a lot that still closed and there are certain papers where we think he's been yes i mean there's a lot that's still closed and there are certain papers where we think he's involved like the can cora boys home papers that would be released last year and i was told they'd be released involved like the can cora boys home papers that would be released last year and i was told they would be released but they wouldn't give them to me until last year and now they've been closed again. they wouldn't give them to me until last year and now they've been closed again but they had to child abuse allegations later in the story but that's just. you know you have to child
11:00 am
abuse allegations later in the story but that's just. in other cases though is it national security that they hide behind national so in other cases though is it national security that they hide behind national security and data protection and international relations and relations with the sovereign i mean they have a whole series it'll security and data protection and international relations and relations with the sovereign i mean they have a whole series exemptions they deploy but yes the still clearly a cover up going on in this extraordinary thing is that public funds were used to buy the baton diaries and letters exemptions they deploy but yes the still clearly a cover up going on and it was extraordinary thing is that public funds were used to buy the baton diaries and letters. in lieu of tax for them and those papers are still remain closed to this. in lieu of tax for them and those papers are still remain closed to this day only in the. later in the book because i do want to go to
11:01 am
the glamorous beginning today only in the. later in the book because i do want to go to the glamorous beginning to look at there were lord ennen who used to be provost of university college london you could hit a book at that were lord ennen who used to be provost of university college london you heard him as saying there were is that about the king or boys or war is that i'm as saying there were is that about the king or boys or war is that of a tempted against perils. well i mean he's involved i think in both an attempted coup against harold wills well i mean he's involved i think in both him as saying there were is not about the king or boys or war is them is saying that about. it attempts not about the king or object boys or war who were is against carroll's well i mean he's involved i think in both i mean the coup i mean 68 against wilson he always denied his involvement but it's quite clear when you know look at the papers and triangulate the correspondence that they base out of tempted against
11:02 am
carroll's. well i mean he's involved i think in both i mean the coup i mean no 68 against wilson he always denied his involvement but it's quite clear when you know look at the papers and triangulate the correspondence that they basically he was very involved he actually put up candidates including the head of her how deeply he was very involved he actually put up candidates including the head of her hammer horror films as a possible member of the cabinet very much but had a very high sense of his own horror films as a possible member of the cabinet very much but had a very high sense of his own. achievement and roll and his qualities and he felt achievement and role and this is his qualities and he felt he could be prime minister and he loved this idea of being in charge of of this national government but of course he could be prime minister and he loved this idea of being in charge of of this national government but of course he says it's edwina his wife who is
11:03 am
on the left he says it's edwina his wife who is on the left and he's on the right and you explore that in the book in great yes well i would say ft and he's on the right so and you explore that in the book in great yes well i would say he was on the right he was very progressive in his views i think in some ways he was very keen as a public servant on the right he was very progressive in his views i think in some ways he was very keen as a public servant as a naval officer not to be seen to be involved but time and time again he can't help himself so he often does a naval officer not to be seen to be involved but time and time again he can't help himself so he threatens to resign during sue is his 1st sea lord he's very against a piece threatens to resign during sue is his 1st sea lord he's very against appeasement and rights to even when he resigns so he does get involved but i think it we needn't and rights to even when he resigns so he does get involved but i think it we know is the one clearly who was almost a communist and she in fact has
11:04 am
a fall is the one clearly who was almost a communist. and she has a follow on how because of her communist associations filed by the f.b.i. yup you know i mean that as long have because of her communist associations filed by the f.b.i. yup you know i mean that he has a fall too but for other things i mean around the world and certainly he has a fall too but for other things i mean around the world and certainly viewers watching this in india and kashmir will view is watching this in india and kashmir will know mountbatten for one thing the mon batten plan to just go through the fact that no mountbatten for one thing the mon batten plan just go through the fact that george is the 6th king george the 6th sense is cousin bowden and endless work has been done on the fact that today the problem george the 6th king george the 6 and his cousin will dwell boughton and endless work has been done
11:05 am
on the fact that today the problems it was in kashmir had a part about that and some is fault. i think so i mean he sent in. 477 with with the instruction to bring bring about an independence inspired by june 1500 feet but i think we but i think it gets really rise redesigns this is not as was told jim was told his name to all this wealth is that jews as well that unless they give it depends much more quickly will be nothing to give it a butcher's thought unless they give in to pence much more quickly will be nothing to give it a butcher's thought is diminishing the i.c.'s is no longer the force it was the sectarian problems of groceries diminishing the i.c.'s is no longer the force it was the sectarian problems of growing that the riots and i think he just rushes things and he was always very impatient throwing the riots and i think he just
11:06 am
rushes things and he was. always very impatient so within 4 months he has to divide this huge country what it was previously and so within 4 months he has to divide this huge country well that was previously in venice or in your book and since it is about the glory you seemed in the center in your book and since it is about the glory yet you seem to suggest that he sped things up deliberately partly because of marital problems with his to suggest that he sped things up deliberately partly because of marital problems with his wife and of course we're talking here about the largest human migration ins wife and of course we're talking here about the largest human migration in world history of 2 of the partition of india i mean you know i think no one world history of 2 of the partition of india i mean you know i think no one to speak to the problems would be partition and that's true of the
11:07 am
engine politicians as well to speak to the problems would be a partition and that's true of the engine politicians as well i think you know he did i don't buy the thought that he did it i think you know he did i don't buy the thought that he did it because you want to get back to his naval career or anything else i think he just felt that the only because you want to get back to his naval career or or anything else i think he just felt that the only way to sort out the problem was to keep things in since the momentum going i think way to sort out the problem was to keep things in since the momentum going i think where he's at fault is he only announced the politicians the boundaries are he's at fault is he only announced the politicians the boundaries after independence he wants intervention celebrations to go with the swing and not instance the after independence he wants intervention celebrations to go with a swing and not instance the british not to be in control when the problems arose.
11:08 am
that would you know also british not to be in control when the problems arose. that would you know also something the engine politicians want of themselves and i think the indian politicians have to take some responsibility for not do something the engine politicians want to themselves and i think the indian politicians have to take some responsibility for not preparing themselves properly because the world warnings about the problems that would wouldn't suit by kevin's preparing themselves properly because the world warnings about the problems that would wouldn't suit by kevin's jenkins who's a governor of the northwest frontier who were warning about what was going to happen. jenkins who is the governor of the northwest frontier who were warning about what was going to happen. but you know and there were troops there prepared to do it but i think the feeling with the british had was that we don't want to be but you know and there were troops there prepared to do it but i think the feeling with the british had was that we don't want to be we're no longer responsible for the constant now it's up to the indians to do what they feel is right we're no longer responsible for the constant now it's up to the indians to do what they feel is right and well here we are certain things that didn't work out but i mean he did
11:09 am
a extraordinary job and well you know certain things it didn't work out but i mean he did a extraordinary job in a very short period of time his commission divided on sectarian grants it was left to do on his own bob in a very short period of time his commission divided on sectarian ground so he was left to do on his own i think this was a feeling there will be much more cooperation than there in fact was later i don't think any no i think this was a feeling there will be much more cooperation than there in fact was later i don't think any normal person would reserve when a 1000000 people were killed because of this no i don't think he felt the need to resign all of us would reserve when a 1000000 people were killed because of this no i don't think he felt the need to resign i think he felt the need to solve the problem and in some ways he did he set up an emergency committee and i think he felt the need to solve the problem and in some ways he did he set up an emergency committee and he in that we know were i think you know selfless in the way they worked and that's in some ways what happened he in that we know were i think you know selfless in the way they were and that's in some ways were the bond with with with their really developed the what they did afterwards so that in some ways was
11:10 am
a bond with with with their really developed what they did afterwards. so that in some ways was i find a stop at the mean the stories always said that if if you're in a hole the best place to stop at the main the story is always said that if if you're in a hole the best place the best person to get you out is to keep but he'll got you into the mess in the 1st place so this is the best person to get you out of his sticky but he'll got you into the mess in the 1st place so this is probably another good example of that the tragedy lives on today in terms of trying to understand really another good example of that the tragedy lives on today in terms of trying to understand god but about an early on in the book when the when you average down court but about an early on in the book when the when you recount the kind of lifestyle they have which is so out of recount the kind of lifestyle they have which is so out of reach and beyond what anyone in british society could have as you say there when they meet chaplain jim beyond what anyone in british society
11:11 am
could read you say that when they meet chaplain charlie chaplin in the anywhere in . baghdad and calls up in a charlie chaplin in the anywhere in. baghdad and calls up in a shy and pathetic little man there's a kind of. emblematic of shy and pathetic little. is a kind of. emblematic of the lack of empathy of lord mountbatten for normal people in this country i mean obviously chaplin was in all he would but the lack of empathy of lord mountbatten for normal people in this country i mean obviously chaplin was it all he would but yeah a working class man from relevant to gossip yeah well i mean that was a circular problem yeah a working class man from relevant to gossip yeah well i mean that was a strictly a private letter i mean he was very arrogant botton a very faint and slightly pompous and i thought letter i mean he was very arrogant man in a very faint and slightly pompous and i think it's actually how they talk i mean i think what the purpose didn't over time is chopping
11:12 am
a bit of think. how they talk i mean i think repurpose student of the time was chopping a made a pasta wiener on the honeymoon or although she'd made a pass at him you know she could be an embarrassment posset wiener on the honeymoon or all she'd made a pass at him you know she could be an embarrassment to him at times because of course not in a public pronouncements but also in her private life and that was up to him at times because of course not in a public pronouncements but also in her private life and that was always his concern you know not to upset the royal family and not to stymie his career always is concerned you know not to upset the royal family and not to stymie his career but the infamous liaison with the great communist. but the infamous liaison with the great communist paul robeson you look at it didn't come out with the fact that maybe the evidence isn't there for ropes when you look at it didn't come out with the fact that maybe the evidence isn't there for a relationship with him paul robeson and. i certainly she had long relationship
11:13 am
with a know about relationship between paul robes and. i certainly she had long relationship with a know about mine called the hotch potch and so i think i do quote some people saying there may have been relation called the hotch potch and i think i do quote some people saying there may have been relationship with ropes and it's difficult to tell she certainly. wasn't averse to the ship with ropes and it's difficult to tell . she certainly wasn't averse to doctoring her diary the official books say there wasn't an affair because she doesn't talk about the ferengi to doctoring her diary the official books say there wasn't an affair because she doesn't talk about the affair and she always mentions her affair and her diaries but you know how do we know that because no one else has seen the always mentions her fair and her diaries but you know how do we know that because no one else has seen those diaries except the official biographer us doors are closed to researches. except stars except the official biography us dars a close to researches. except by the family by the family by the government actually i think the family not by the family by the family by the government
11:14 am
actually i think the family are not behind it it's the government to post it with southampton university and when you are an expert on spying as well hide it it's the government to post it with southampton university and when you're an expert on spying as well because you're on this show but your previous books i was the only one i know coverups by the government to say because you're on this show but your previous books i was the only one i know coverups by the government it's the same thing but surely it's more i mean when you started out writing lives you didn't think the governing but surely it's more i mean when you started out writing lives you didn't think the government would be hiding secrets about that was the way they would understandably arguably will be hiding secrets about the way they would understandably arguably be hiding about russian spies in here that might. want to know about russian spies and here am i ever want to know and i didn't think that i would discover that i was writing about another promiscuous bisexual. i didn't
11:15 am
think that i would discover that i was writing about another promiscuous bisexual. so there are all surprises but it's a great thing about blogs for you start you just don't know where it's going to lead you under that you can do so there are all surprises but it's a great thing about blogs for you start you just don't know where it's going to lead you under that you can duchess of windsor at the moment i don't know who knows what one might fall. and or do sisters of windsor at the moment i don't know who knows what one might find or do you suspect is the reason the british government will not release the papers is it embarrassment or is it perspective is the reason the british government will not release the papers is it embarrassment or is it political i think there's there there clearly things that they say about the royal family which they pretty don't want to disclose i think there's there there clearly things that they say about the royal family which they pretty don't want out i think props the i mean we know that she had 16 plus affairs and he had many want out i think props the i mean we know that she had 16 plus affairs and he had many self the maybe other affairs as a matter of course not but i mean self the maybe other affairs as
11:16 am
a matter of course not but i mean i covered the fact there been a break in at buckingham palace in october $949.00 someone came and covered the fact there been a break in at buckingham palace in october 949 someone came and came to look for the king and you go to over the wall in 30 seconds climbed up an open ladder by an open came to look for the king and you go to over the wall and 30 seconds climbed up an open ladder by an open window and got in now they've tried to shut that story down because of they say that they used to some window and got in now they've tried to shut that story down because of they say that they used the same security arrangements now as they didn't 149 there is a culture of secrecy in this country i'm security arrangements now as they didn't 149 there is a culture of secrecy in this country and anything to do the royal family is covered up quite unnecessarily i mean the brody and anything to do the royal family is covered up quite unnecessarily i mean the royal archives are pretty much closed. you know they argue it's
11:17 am
a private archive whole archives are pretty much closed. you know they all use a private archive i would argue that it's part of their public life now one aspect i would argue that it's part of the public life now one aspect that you were able to get lots of information on is the 900. ready to d.m. so that you were able to get lots of information on as the 942 d.m. raid which was a disaster and mountbatten as a naval officer some people saying it was the raid which was a disaster and about him as a naval officer some people saying it was the precursor to d.-day how did not about and how did he even because it's a d.-day. how did not about and how did they even go one being a naval officer after a raid which killed what 97 percent of the canadian no one but naval officer after a raid which killed what 97 percent of the canadian troops that were he was very good at shifting the blame to all the people he had meant to win you know the
11:18 am
troops that were he was very good at shifting the blame to all the people he had a mentor like burgess did in churchill with his great mentor when he was moved on research but like burgess stayed in churchill with his great mentor and he was moved on reasonably quickly after that to southeast asia but he was a man he was a ruthless very quickly after that to southeast asia but he was a man he was a ruthless self promoter and he was a great you know a teflon man things didn't release a self promoter and he was a great you know a teflon man things didn't really stick now in the end he's not killed by an indian stick now in the end he's not killed by an indian. angry at him for partition he ends up being killed in. angry at him for a partition he ends up being killed in. what have you discovered about his assassination well the extraordinary thing and what have you discovered about his
11:19 am
assassination well the extraordinary thing is that he had a private bodyguard a little problem a military policeman is that he had a private bodyguard a little probably a military policeman who did a damage assessment to us who could see that shatter 5 was unprotected night and who did a damage assessment to us who could see that shutter 5 was unprotected knighton vulnerable and reported that nothing was done he noticed that there was vulnerable and reported that nothing was done he noticed that there was a belfast car belonging to an ira activist in the vicinity reported it to belfast car. belonging to an irate activist in the vicinity reports that nothing was done and if up to this chap graeme yule was sacked made just nothing was done and if up to this chap graeme you'll was sacked made just on a gagging order which only expired 2 years ago. and the protection of gagging order
11:20 am
which only expired 2 years ago. and the protections given to the garda who were not really qualified to do that job but also mum and it was given to the garda who were not really qualified to do that job but also must have been told repeatedly not to go to on that year they knew there was a plot to assassinate him over the road being told repeatedly not to go to on that year they knew there was a plot to assassinate him over the royal family probably him and it was pretty irresponsible not only to go but to bring his family family probably him and it was pretty irresponsible not only to go but to bring his family with him and make them . victims themselves while of course we don't believe that he with them and make them. victims themselves while of course we don't blame blaming them but i mean when you're talking about the changes in security protection they mean there but i mean when you're talking about the changes in security protection you're not saying that there would have been insiders well you're not saying that there would have
11:21 am
been insiders well there were certainly suspicions that there were insiders. sympathizers working suspicions that there were insiders. sympathizers working in his household. but there were certainly people watching him but the irony of course was it was a household. but there were certainly people watching him but the already of course was it was a bit back far to the sport from north america dried up the corporation across the border and it backfired to the sport from north america dried up the corporation across the border increased and the army is always been sympathetic to the i raise aims so they killed in effect the wrong man. well we have a get the papers i mean you separate. and the army is about that always been sympathetic to the i raise aims so they killed in effect the wrong man will we ever get the papers i mean you separate it very specifically the rumors about child
11:22 am
abuse and all the rest of it it very specifically the rumors about child abuse and all the rest of it will we ever get these papers do you looking at the things you look will we ever get these papers do you looking at the things you looked at believe any of this can cora boys when bill 1st abuse scandal like believe any of this can cora boys when bill 1st abuse scandal like i quote 2 boys who claim to be abused by mountbatten who came from can core and they say the quote 2 boys who claim to be abused by and who came from can core and they say they were to be persuasive and they knew things that they wouldn't have known they couldn't have made up they were to be persuasive and they knew things that they wouldn't have known they couldn't have made up but you know it's not just them there are lots and lots of which i did i couldn't put in the book for legal reasons and but you know it's not just them there are lots and lots of which i did i couldn't put in the book for legal reasons and the because i couldn't stand up it up properly suggesting his links with with it because i couldn't stand up it up properly
11:23 am
suggesting his links with with sexual abuse rings or not and this testimony from a driver from the 2nd world war the sexual abuse rings or not and this testimony from a driver from the 2nd world war as well as well who else will he see when he went to the new physics and things to gauge to him some things now because it seems to emerge even now since the book came out people are telling me things so i think there's a lot more to the story this book came out people are telling me things so i think there's a lot more to the story than meets the eye and the call beach thing has made people just miss all these these stories and the call beach thing has. maybe people just miss all these stories and i think we throw in the pot the baby out with the bathwater but i think the case of bisexuality has and i think we throw in the pot the baby out with the bathwater but i think the case of bisexuality is pretty much made the case with paedophilia i agree is more circumstantial pretty much made the
11:24 am
