...Or so he says. In an unprecedented outburst on the pages of the Express Online, the world's principle media UFO superstar and former official UFO investigator for the British government, Nick Pope, has decried allegations that he is a mole planted in the UFOlogy community to spread disinformation. "I accept there are people out there who think I'm still secretly working for the government, helping to cover all this up, I promise I'm not." he said. He explained how he has actually campaigned for greater UFO transparency, including the latest release of
ministry of Defence UFO files, see: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2016/10/new-government-ufo-files-censored.html.
This has not satisfied many people in conspiratorial UFOlogy and exopolitics
who still believe there is far more decisive evidence being held back. I am one
of them; however I doubt very much if the Man from the Ministry is directly
responsible. Personally, if I had a "saucer in a hangar", to use his
catchphrase, Nick Pope, the public face of the UFO phenomenon who is always on
television, would be the last person on earth I would tell. Source: https://www.express.co.uk/news/weird/908660/UFO-aliens-mole-MoD-Nick-Pope-denies-UFO-cover-up.
Nick Pope has been nominated more than anybody else as a possible government plant, somebody in the UFO community who is secretly working for the government to suppress information on UFO's and sabotage the efforts of those researching them; a "shill" in the parlance of the Conspirasphere. According to his official bio, Nick Pope joined the MoD in 1985, was appointed head of the UFO desk in 1991 and ran it until 1994. Due to those few years he became a celebrity by being appointed the media's designated spokesman on UFO's; "
Fox Mulder" as the press dubbed him. He retired in 2006 and is now a
freelance journalist and author. He sometimes writes for the same journal that
I do, Neon Nettle. The accusations go
along the lines that Pope did not in fact retire and that his MoD job was just
a cover for his real role in a very different UK
state institution, one whose name also begins with the letter M. It's a tricky
situation because if Nick is in fact a shill he is hardly likely to publish his
payslips. If he is not, how can he possibly prove himself innocent to
everybody's satisfaction? My advice is to treat Nick Pope as you would anybody
else, with caution if you don't trust him and openly if you do. It's important
to strike a balance between the extremes of reckless naiveté and "shill
fever". I know how it feels to be falsely accused of shillhood and we must
avoid that at all costs, see here for details: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/the-shill-squad.html.
I personally am wary of Nick Pope for several reasons, the most recent being
his perplexing support for the Larry Warren Hate Cult, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/the-larry-warren-controversy-part-15.html.
However I have no proof that he is doing this for anything other than personal
motives. Pope also made some very peculiar comments during the run-up to the
2012 Olympics, the so-called "Apocalympics", see: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/2012-london-olympic-stadium.html.
If Nick doesn't want to be considered a shill then avoiding these media spots
will make him sound more trustworthy. Conversely Nick has also just made a
statement in the press that confirms the presence of possible extraterrestrial
metal artefacts being found by Bigelow Aerospace as part of the recently
declassified US Department of Defence project to investigate UFO's, see: https://www.express.co.uk/news/weird/910447/Pentagon-UFO-metal-from-flying-saucer-AATIP.

So we are getting very mixed messages from Nick Pope. Is he running with the
fox or chasing with the hounds? Should we believe him when he protests his
innocence? If he is honest, then could he be a useful ally?
