    Just finished reading 'The Wilson Plot' by David Leigh. Highly recommended. Should be read after reading 'Spy Catcher' by Peter Wright. Was there a plot to overthrow Harold Wilson's Government? Yes but by a few right wing mavericks influenced by James Angleton (CIA) and his willing accomplice in MI5 - Peter Wright. Why ? Simply because Wilson was a socialist and was not as pro-American as Angleton wanted him to be. There was no evidence against Wilson just spiteful smears, innuendo and imaginary links with the Soviet Union. Harold Wilson was highly intelligent and above all loyal to Queen and country. I hope he is fully re-habilitated and given his rightful place in history as a Prime-Minister with a social conscience. RIP Harold.
