Guest Speaker: Kieren Hannon: The Cato Street Conspirators
In 1820 these English radicals intended to kill the British Prime Minister and members of the cabinet to inspire an uprising. There was an informer in their midst and their plan was thwarted.
The conspirators who were not executed for treason were banished to Australia. Kieren has studied the subject intensively and followed what happened to those who were exiled.
