In the first episode of our new TV series, we talk Covid and QAnon at Camelot Castle
Tintagel in Cornwall, the legendary birthplace of King Arthur, has always been a mystical place. Perched on the edge of Atlantic cliffs, it is a where new age beliefs meld with Britain’s Celtic past.
It is also the home of John Mappin, who’s been described as the mouthpiece of Britain’s QAnon movement and as a prominent associate of American conservatism’s wilder fringes. Aris Roussinos spent the weekend with Mappin at his home, Camelot castle, to find out how (or if) these American beliefs have penetrated into deep England.
