The Integrity Initiative's UK Inner Core Cluster

Not to be confused with the Outer core.

The Inner Core Cluster of the Integrity Initiative was leaked in the first Integrity Initiative Leak. As of 2022 its operational function within the group remains uncertain although its importance is suggested by the fact that several of its members have senior positions in groups believed to lie close to the heart of the UK Deep state such as NATO, Chatham House and RUSI.

UK Deep state precedent

The Anglo-American Establishment.jpg

The name "inner core" is reminiscent of Carroll Quigley's description of the Milner Group, an earlier incarnation of the UK deep state. His posthumously published study of The Anglo-American Establishment structured the group into three concentric rings with the "Society of the Elect" at the center, followed by the "Inner Circle" and then the "Outer Circle".
