Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
More info from MoA blog about Donnelly ...

Christopher Nigel Donnelly (CND) is the co-director of The Institute for Statecraft and founder of its offshoot Integrity Initiative. The Initiative claims to "Defend Democracy Against Disinformation".

The Integrity Initiative does this by planting disinformation about alleged Russian influence through journalists 'clusters' throughout Europe and the United States.

Both, the Institute as well as the Initiative, claim to be independent Non-Government Organizations. Both are financed by the British government, NATO and other state donors.

From Craig Murray's blog:

The property at 2 Temple Place, London is owned by the charity The Bulldog Trust Ltd.

The Bulldog Trust's Trustees Reports ending June 2016 and June 2017 state that

"other external income streams are the rental from the basement of the Two Temple Place to the Institute for Statecraft and Wessex House the property in Newbury".

(Wessex House is at Oxford Road, Newbury, RG14 1PA and is serviced offices and meeting rooms hired out through an agency, Inigo. It doesn't seem to have any link to the I of S.)


Yet there doesn't seem to be any link between the charitable purposes of the Bulldog Trust and the activities of the Institute of Statecraft. The Chief Executive of both the Bulldog Trust and Two Temple Place Ltd is Mary Rose Gunn, previously Parliamentary Assistant / Researcher to the hawkish ex-Conservative MP Richard Ottaway. [Could be a mistake in persons as PA was Fiona Gunn, also secretary of Society of Conservative Lawyers - Oui]
