Prime Ministerial hopeful and leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, has been accused of ‘briefing’ a Soviet-backed spy on British intelligence during a meeting in the Commons at the height of the Cold War.
According to “secret files obtained by The Sun,” Corbyn was even referred to with the codeword ‘COB’ by his alleged fellow Communist conspirators.
He was “vetted by Czech agents in 1986 and met one at least three times — twice in the Commons, it was claimed.”
“According to secret files, he passed on material about the arrest of an East German and was allegedly put on a list of Czechoslovakian state security team’s agents and sources.”
Yesterday, the Labour Party issued a statement of denial:
“The claim that [Jeremy Corbyn] was an agent, asset or informer for any intelligence agency is entirely false and a ridiculous smear.
“Like other MPs, Jeremy has met diplomats from many countries.
“In the 1980s he met a Czech diplomat […] for a cup of tea in the House of Commons.
“Jeremy neither had nor offered any privileged information to this or any other diplomat.”
According to the secret documents, Czech Communist secret police describe Agent COB as one of its ‘sources’, and that he provided them “material” on MI5 and was “well informed” when discussing British security measures.
So, it appears evident that Corbyn provided non-privileged information about British homeland security and ‘briefed’ – as an insider of British politics – a ‘foreign diplomat’ from the Czech Soviet-backed Communist regime at the height of the Cold War on the operations of British intelligence.
Cold War expert Professor Anthony Glees, of the Oxford Intelligence Group, describes the situation at the time:
“Dissidents were under attack and being imprisoned in Czechoslovakia.
“In the struggle between the dissidents who were trying to overthrow the communist government and the Czech government, Corbyn is working on the side of the Czech government.”
Czechoslovakia, then a puppet state of the Soviet Union, relied on a secret police force known as the Statni Bezpecnost or StB.
Jeremy Corbyn is either ’breathtakingly’ naive or knowingly colluded with Soviet-backed spies against the security interests of the British state.
Mr Corbyn’s choice of ‘casual pals’ to take some tea with is curious.
Why was he not alarmed at the subject of discussion raised by a foreign diplomat from a hostile Communist state?
Why would Mr Corbyn supply material, which he had presumably previously sourced, on British security measures?
More questions remain to be answered…
One thing is for certain, Agent COB is a liability and a danger to the security of Britain, and wholly unfit to be head of the British Government.
