“Wars are very easy to get into”, says flying ace Robert J. (“Bob”) Moriarty, and very hard to get out of”. He should know. With 42 Air Medals and three Distinguished Flying Crosses in Vietnam, to say nothing of numerous civilian air trophies and records, Bob is a flying legend. Oh – and in-between adventures, he became the first pilot to fly under the Eiffel Tower… and the first to fly all the way across the Atlantic with a wing-walker on top! If that’s not a definition of a buccaneer, we don’t know what is. “We’ve forgotten the lessons of Vietnam”, he says. “We are engaged in a series of stupid wars – and the end result can only be World War Three.”
Loz Kaye of the UK Pirate Party is also (obviously) quite a buccaneer, too. Loz is developing the party’s manifesto to make it more than a single-issue campaign, and they’ll be fielding more candidates than ever in the forthcoming elections… but they’ve not forgotten that, hey – they’re still a party!
This is Litopia After Dark at its unique best – covering issues other media rarely touch, with fascinating guests that intrigue and inform. You can find Bob’s gold website here.
Presented by Peter Cox with Dave Bartram and the halcyon Ali Gardiner in the chat room.

We couldn’t do it without you, and that’s the truth. You really do keep us on the air.
If you value truly independent broadcasting – not beholden to special interest groups, the curse of political correctness or some nefarious media baron – then please support us now.
Here are our goals…
Goal #1: We Go Weekly!
We’d love to be with you more often than once a month. But every show needs a lot of time to prepare… Our first goal is to produce a top-quality show every week – please help us get there!
Goal #2: We Go Video!
Wouldn’t it be nice to see our guests? Video will add a new dimension to what we do (and yes, we’ll always have top-quality audio available, too).
Goal #3: We Go On The Road!
Help LAD get off our tushies and produce some of the best location shows you’ve ever heard. We can do it – with your help!
You can cancel at any time (but we hope you won’t!). And thank you – your kind patronage truly makes all the difference.
