The Gareth Williams Inquest

What a mess, what a cover-up.  The inquest into the sad, strange death of Gareth Williams concluded yesterday, with the coroner raising more questions than she was able to answer.

It was also patently obvious that both MI6 and the Metropolitan Police Counter-Terrorism Squad (SO15) hampered the investigation, for the inevitable reasons of “national security”.

When will MI6 realise that it is not above the law?

My heart goes out to Gareth’s family.

    Shocking story, What did he know, I dont think it has anything to do with him being gay, more like to do with him being a Spy, and what he knew. They gay stuff is just chicken feed.

    The “police in the pay of some media” hypothesis as the source of the leak about his being gay seems just a way to point attention away from MI6.

    “When will MI6 realise that it is not above the law?”
    But they are. The National Secrecy Act saw to that.

    There seem to be tensions building between the Police and the Intelligence services.

    I have been studying Gareth Williams for sometime. He is very interesting. A Cross-dressing Cypher expert.
    MI6 oringally found him online he was some kind of games expert. Bizarre.
    He was in charge of defending the City of London from Cyber attacks amongst other things. He’d recently come back from the NSA also.

      “A Cross-dressing Cypher expert.”

      Nothing wrong with that unless he has atrocious taste in clothing…
      Attractive possibilities for imaginative and tasteful business cards:

      Beau Brummell, Ltd.
      Cryptography & Haberdashery

      “MI6 oringally found him online he was some kind of games expert.”

      Oh, no! I hope MI6 realizes if when they review this site that when we say you’re a web wizard we’re kidding. We are, we swear!

      ” He’d recently come back from the NSA also.”
      The Cousins… Interesting.

    There is a long list of myterious deaths in Britain. The Top three that spring to mind are Princess Di’s Death, David Kelly’s “suicide inthe woods” , & Gareth Williams peculiar death. There is never any forensics either. Or they lose or contaminate it conveniently.

    Not that they have anyting to cover up …

    I dont know whether he was a cross dresser. but this came out…

    Police ‘did wrong’

    In late December 2010, police revealed some “embarrassing, hurtful and distressing” details about Mr Williams which they said was necessary in the search for evidence.

    They said he owned £15,000-worth of unworn women’s designer clothing, which were kept in six boxes at his flat, and that he had visited a drag cabaret in east London four days before his death and had tickets to two more.

    And I read he studied fashion at a college in London. I think that maybe that was his cover- Fashion student.

    My personal view on this is that he was killed because of what he knew and because he was leaving the secret service and returning to Wales.

    maybe he was the kiss and tell type and his bf didn’t want it known about their relationship?

      This is not Oscar Wilde’s era. Homosexuality is less a blackmail weapon and more often the red herring to change the subject. Remember the ex-governor of NJ who was “befriended” by a Mossad pretty boy whom he promptly hired as Security Adviser (with no security credentials) for $100,000/yr?
      When the scandal broke that the “security adviser” was an Israeli citizen tied to Mossad the subject became their liaison.
      The media obediently bleeted on and on about the governor’s gayness instead of the … manliness of Mossad’s penetration into the state’s highest echelons of power. (Apologies for the unintended but uncorrected suggestiveness),2933,233600,00.html

      So his bf was in the secret service too then?

      Ariadna Theokopoulos & Blake

      my comment was offhand speculation, though it’s still a possibility, if williams was seeing some high level guy who didn’t want his homosexuality known. but i would guess he was murdered for some spy related thing. perhaps he talked too much with his boy friends outside the service and that got back to his bosses? so they silenced him. what ever the reason they did murder him, as with kelly, it was obvious his murder was to send a message. much like a mafia hit is intended to do.

        The latter seems more likely but we may never know
