    I'm with you Ned. I was reading the full letter (which can be found here - Letter to David Cameron from Gordon Young - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)), and it sounded like someone trying to make a story fit when it clearly didn't.

    The writer / society seems to have a grasp of historical matters, but it seems strictly amatuerish to me.

    Have a read of the letter. I think you'll agree with me!
    As a great man once said:

    "I think you're entering the realms of fantasy here, Young...."

    Seems to me he's just making up acronyms that fit the code...
