Newly disclosed classified documents show Taoiseach Charles Haughey and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher were offered the chance to forge a very unusual cosmic alliance.
But, instead of coming from an EU partner or an Asian power, the request came from “a secret envoy of the Cosmos Supreme Civilization Circle”.
Hitherto secret papers released by the UK’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) show the two premiers were contacted with some urgency about a prospective attack by a UFO.
Bizarre it may well sound, but both Kildare Street and Number 10 saw fit to acknowledge the incident with the UK government ordering the MoD to assess whether there was any action would be needed in the event.
The letter, which originated in Seoul, South Korea from an un-named author, urges support and help in the face of the threat of imminent attack on the earth.
“I am all anxiety a nobody know about riskiness of UFO attack to air defence of the earth and electric wave of the for kill and injury”, was the somewhat unlettered demand for attention.
“I want to discuss about space development of the your country. I want to meet to you. I demand to mighty support and help.”
Earthlings should subsequently be put under the control of the Cosmos Supreme Civilization Circle and the protection, presumably, of the “Robot’s Army”.
After the urgent letter hit Downing Street, it was forwarded to the MoD for “official action” according to a memo. “No 10 have passed it to us for action as we see fit and you are asked to consider whether there is anything which can usefully be said to the correspondent and to action accordingly,” said the rubber-stamped note.
The Department of the Taoiseach, in a reply to the author thanked him for his recent letter and said it would be brought to the attention of the Taoiseach “as soon as possible”.
Betty Meyler of UFO Ireland said she is not surprised by the letter and insists that discussions have taken place between different countries and aliens in the past.
“I’ve never heard of a letter being sent to governments before,” she said.
“But we do know that there have been meetings with the intergalactic governments and the governments of Russia, the United States and Britain. This doesn’t surprise me at all.”
