Lib Dem peer takes part in World War Three

Kishwer Falkner has taken part in a gripping and chillingly realistic BBC Two TV programme. It’s in the “This World” series and entitled “World War Three: Inside the War Room”. You can see it on iPlayer here. A committee of senior former British military and diplomatic figures comes together to war-game a hypothetical ‘hot war’ in eastern Europe.

It is an absolutely fascinating programme. Using actors and footage, a scenario involving Russian infiltration in Estonia starts a crisis. Kishwer, our Foreign Affairs spokesperson, gives plenty of input into the discussion, warning at one point that there is a danger of “sleep-walking into a war with Russia”. The “War room” team is chaired by Sir Christopher Meyer, former UK ambassador to the USA.
