The British Government and Crop Circles - A revealing and candid new statement by Nick Pope

The British Government and Crop Circles.

(A candid and revealing new statement by Nick Pope)

I'm not sure how I feel about promoting a book, the (lengthy) subtitle of which is displayed on the front page and reads; It's 2009 and it is time to rewrite history. Nick Pope and the MoD attempt to change the official UK crop circle and UFO histories. But they are taken to task through the documented historical evidence from the National Archives!; - but what the hell, Colin Andrews and I are friends. The book stems from an 'official history' I wrote some years ago, detailing the military and the MoD's involvement in the crop circle phenomenon. I wrote the article at a time when I was still working for the MoD and it's no secret that MoD has downplayed its interest and involvement in the crop circle issue, as it has with the UFO phenomenon. This has been the policy for many years and clearly I had to play my part in this when I worked for the government. In this interesting and important new book, Colin Andrews takes me and the MoD to task for this. He has a point and has highlighted fascinating new evidence documenting greater official interest in crop circles than has previously been acknowledged. Some of the issues Colin highlights have arisen because the line between official and private interest (even within government, the military and the intelligence agencies) can be blurred. There are particular sensitivities and political difficulties when members of the Royal Family are involved. Nonetheless, I recommend this book, even though I come across as the bad guy. Order from Amazon or check out Colin's website at for further details.
