The moment I admitted I was the GCHQ whistleblower

Katharine Gun is a GCHQ whistleblower whose story features in the new movie Official Secrets, starring Keira Knightley. She told 5 Live about the moment she confessed to leaking a confidential email to try and stop the 2003 Iraq war. Mrs Gun was later charged with breaching the Official Secrets Act. Speaking to Emma Barnett, she called for the act to be reformed and said she’d like to ask Tony Blair ‘how he sleeps at night’ following his decision to take the UK to war
