Editor’s Note: Although this exchange between Cameron and Medvedev appears to be in jest, it is also revealing for beyond the spy game, in the period between 1960’s -1980’s, certain promising students visited the USSR and its former Soviet satellite states under foundation-funded travel scholarships, with selected students being groomed by the globalist foundations in order to play a future role in their collectivist school of thought and governing in their home countries. Among these political luminaries included the likes of David Cameron, Condi Rice, and most famously Bill Clinton who while a Rhodes scholar at Cameron’s same Oxford University from 1969, had visited Moscow in early 1970. The extent of their ties with the KGB are mostly unknown, but their ties to the globalists’ collectivist foundations who funded those trips, and later to globalist think tanks, are very well documented indeed.

There is the odd advantage to being (roughly) the same age as the prime minister to compensate for yet another unmistakeable sign of ageing.
This is that occasionally the prime minister mentions something from the past that has a familiar ring. So when David Cameron said in Russia on Monday that the Soviet authorities had sized him up during a visit to the USSR in 1985 I had a flashback to my own experience in Moscow the following year.
It is worth noting exactly what the prime minister said in his opening remarks at Moscow State University because he was careful not to mention the words spy or KGB. Some No 10 aides thought his message was missed by many in the audience. Showing his knowledge of Beatles songs, the prime minister said:
“It’s great to be back in Moscow. I first came to Russia as a student in the year between school and university and I took the Trans-Siberian Railway from Nakhodka to Moscow. I went on to the Black Sea coast and when I was there two Russians, who spoke perfect English, turned up on a beach that was reserved for foreigners. They took me out to lunch; they took me out to dinner. They asked me intriguing questions about life in England, about what I thought about politics.
And when I got to university I told my tutor about this and he asked me whether I thought it was an interview. Well, if it was, it seems I didn’t get the job. My fortunes have improved a bit since then and so have those of Russia.”
“I’m pretty sure that David would have been a very good KGB agent. But in this case he would never had become prime minister of the UK.”
