Spy Blog - London Diplomatic List archive

http://SpyBlog.org.uk

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office publishes the monthly London Diplomatic List of accredited Foreign Diplomats in the UK, some of whom will be Foreign Intelligence Agency staff (obviously there will be many more who are not operating under official diplomatic cover)

For no good reason, the FCO no longer keeps an online archive of previous versions of this List. Other countries, such as Canada, make their monthly list Diplomatic, Consular and Other Representatives in Canada available on request, even if they do not publish the full archive directly via one web page.

In the United States of America, the State Department publishes their Diplomatic list Quarterly , but keeps archives of old list visible online

How are we supposed to obey the anti-money laundering, anti-terrorist financing and the various UN / EU / UK Financial Sanctions schemes which are meant to exert political/ diplomatic "pressure" on various evil governments, if even the names of their Diplomats / Spies publically expelled from London are kept secret ? These are exactly the people who are most likely to be acting as middlemen for the families and henchmen of corrupt dictators, either during their period of diplomatic cover, or afterwards.

Presumably mainstream international media organisation, freelance paparazzi photographers, specialist magazines serving the diplomatic community, UK and Foreign intelligence agencies, serious organised crime or terrorist gangs, know who these people are, so it is only the British public who are still being deliberately kept in ignorance by the Whitehall bureaucrats.

Here are some older versions of the London Diplomatic List, for comparison before and after a Diplomatic Expulsion from London, for the benefit of people who do not want their visits to appear in the FCO web server logfiles, or whose censored internet feed blocks them from accessing UK Government websites.


If you are snooping on, or demonstrating near, or just visiting a Foreign Embassy in London, you will probably see some of their motor vehicles with Dipolomatic Number Plates:

See this Wikipedia article:List of country codes on British diplomatic vehicle registration plates

Since 1979, cars operated by foreign embassies, consular staff, and various international organisations have been given number plates with a distinguishing format of three numbers, one letter, three numbers. The letter is D for diplomats or X for accredited non-diplomatic staff. The first group of three numbers identifies the country or organisation to whom the plate has been issued, the second group of three numbers is a serial number, starting at 101 for diplomats (although some embassies were erroneously issued 100), 400 for non-diplomatic staff of international organisations, and 700 for consular staff.

Many foreign embassies have acquired vanity plates from historic British car numbering systems, for example BF 1 and BF 2 (Burkina Faso), IC 1 (Iceland), CHN 1 (China), BEL 12E (Belize), FIJ 1 (Fiji), 1 NWY (Norway), 1 HKG (General-Director of Hong Kong Economic and Trade office) etc.
