ClandesTime 015 – Mark Stone/Kennedy

Mark Kennedy was an undercover policeman who infiltrated the British anarchist movement for 7 years. In this episode I recount this story, highlighting how Kennedy (under the pseudonym Mark Stone) acted as an agent provocateur in cases that have now collapsed or are under appeal. I also look at how Kennedy and other undercover policeman have formed long term relationships with women within the radical movements they were spying on, and the psychological and legal ramifications of this. I round off with an analysis of possible predictive programming regarding the Kennedy/Stone case, and how the High Court made a key judgment in this case on the basis of the James Bond novels.
