The Socialist Society will be hosting a talk on Bob Lambert – a lecturer at the University who was previously an undercover policeman.
Given by environmental and social justice activist Merrick Badger, the talk will discuss the immorality surrounding his actions whilst undercover.
Mr Lambert was pretending to be an animal rights activist when he fathered the child of one of the women he was spying on, even though he already had a wife and children. He was also accused of planting a fire bomb which caused £340,000 worth of damage.
In October of last year, the Metropolitan Police agreed to pay £425,000 to the woman whose child was fathered by Mr Lambert.
The lecture will take place on 5 March at 7 pm in School II of St Salvator’s Quadrangle.
