Do All Brits Living in the Balkans Work for MI6?

By 12 March 2023

March 12, 2023 - Being a Brit in Croatia comes with its own peculiarities.

Despite being born in 1969, I am apparently responsible for the events in Bleiburg in 1945, for example.

And we are all arrogant colonialists (I also spent a lot of my time in Kenya apologising for the British colonial past before I was born).

And of course, the main topic - what the hell are Brits doing living in Croatia? There can only be one answer - they are undercover operatives for MI6. After 20 years of rumour and accusation, including the delightful claim that I am the MI6 Balkans Bureau Chief (can you imagine), tonight the truth and a little insight into whether or not all Brits living in the Balkans work for MI6.
