Me, UFOs and Tony Blair!

Back in 1997, when my first book, A Covert Agenda, was published, a copy of it was sent to the then British Prime Minister, Tony Blair.

And, since the book contained pretty much all the then-very-limited amount of official UFO documentation in the public domain, I sent a letter with the book, along the lines of: "Oi, Tony! Give us the Government's UFO files!"

Well, it seems this provoked a bit of a back and forth debate behind-closed-doors about the book, some of which related to an extract from A Covert Agenda that appeared in England's People newspaper, as well as a couple of other items.

The newly-released documents (which I now have) aren't in any way spectacular, nor do they demonstrate anything more than a cursory glance at the book, and probably a weary sigh or several from the suits in the Ministry of Defense! But, they're worth a look.

And here's the story from the BBC.
