Media And Police Collude To Smear MI6 ‘Spy’ Gareth Williams

by | 28th, August 2010

MI6 worker Gareth Williams was last seen alive by someone other than his killer on August 15. His body was discovered in his London flat eight days later. His name has been smeared in a concerted collusion between media and police sources ”.

Get this from Channel 4 :

“There is nothing to suggest a security leak”, a source told Channel 4 News. “This is most likely the human tragedy of a private young man who may have had issues.”

A human tragedy, most likely? Well, yes it is a man died. Pretty tragic for that human. This from a media that can’t even agree on how old Mr Williams was when he died.

The Telegraph says Mr Williams was 31. PA News says 30.

Being a member of the British security services who has fought Al Qaeda, Mr Williams is afforded a hero’s press. Right? Wrong. The speculation about his death plays second fiddle to lurid rumours of his life. The tabloids are here not to Help A Hero but to destroy the memory of the man.

Sky’s home affairs correspondent Mark White said: “We have heard from sources that Williams had a complicated private life.”

Is that relevant to the inquiry? Mr Williams was single. He has been labelled a gay transvestite it the Sun , which also alluded to his being into S&M sex .

The Mail offered this gem:

Indeed, ‘Ceaucescu Towers’, as MI6’s brutally modernist Vauxhall Cross HQ is known, is just across the River Thames from his apartment, overshadowing a huge bus terminal, and the gay clubs and saunas of ‘VoHo’ – the area’s red light district.

Today the Mirror tells us:

Police had also found nothing to suggest that Mr Williams was gay but his sexuality was still a part of the investigation.

If Mr Williams wasn’t gay, then can the papers link him to woman? The Star has a go:

Youth worker Raphael L’Hoste-Morton, 32, of Cheltenham, Glos, listed as living at the same London address and who reportedly worked at GCHQ, says any alleged links made between the pair were “purely coincidental” as he had never met Williams.

And the bondage gear found in Mr William’s flat the Sun told us of?
