Edward Snowden: Traitor or Patriot?

Edward Snowden: Traitor or Patriot?

As part of the continuing 6.2 Friday Lecture series, organised by Academic Director, SR, Radley was particularly fortunate to host a highly-topical Talk by the distinguished BBC and ‘Panorama’ reporter (and former parent) Peter Taylor.

Mr Taylor (pictured here with SR) spoke about his recent ‘Panorama’ programme on the Edward Snowden affair – ‘Spies and the Law’: giving his audience of Radleians and dons a unique insight into the complexity of this issue of spying, safety and the activities of organisations like, in Britain, GCHQ and, in America, the NSA and CIA.

Throughout the talk, he constantly urged his audience to ponder this essential question: was Edward Snowden a Traitor or a Patriot? 

The sheer number of questions afterwards from the 6.2s spoke volumes on just how fascinating this Lecture proved.
