Researcher Francis Galway faces the rare charge of inciting the police to disaffection, specifically towards strike action. He had been working for a right-wing pressure group who were campaigning against what they saw as "threats to democracy". The prosecution allege that Galway tried to fabricate evidence of subversion by a left-wing workers group and invited a police inspector to a meeting of fascists in Italy. Galway and his defence team say that his actions have been misunderstood. They deny he had any intent to encourage disaffection and that his motives have always been simply to conduct research and encourage new thinking.
