Think you may be shocked that there were a few right wingers as well......

I wish to commend the current Gov't, seriously !....for their unstinting efforts to ensure they are not returned to office after the next GE....

Can we assume, definitive though it is, the use of the word "hallucinatory " won't meet with universal approval from some contributors on here ?

Ooops !

Now, leaving the rags aside for one minute ( no doubt they will claim he sent a doppelganger, apart from the Sun in deference to the limited vocabulary of the readership ) we await the deductive skills, and exotic imaginations (of which there is no shortage on here relating to this topic) as to why, and this is where it gets a shade complex, Corbyn could, erm, be in two places at once.....and a mere 150 miles away from a closed venue at that.

Over to you..chaps..for your entries for this years Man Booker prize !

Komrad, old chap! You are doing a spiffingly good job, with your constant posts, at keeping attention to Komrad Cob's dodgy past dealings at the top of this JB reading list! Keep up the good work old boy!! Someone might write out a good Czech for you some day for 'services provided'.

So Krystal youíre trying to tell us none of these meetings took place? Do try to keep up with the Central Committee old boy because even Corbyn himself isnít saying that. But if youíre correct Iím sure weíll see him take legal action against those saying so.

Not in the slightest, in response to the first part of your post that is, however, if you have a viable explanation as to why he was 150 miles away from the H.o.P which were closed when he allegedly had a meeting there on the day in question....then please feel free to share it.

It would also seem, in response to the latter part of your post, you don't read the links provided.

@ Trossie....it must be heart breaking, just when you thought all your wildest dreams and wishes were about to come true, only to find them dashed like flotsam on the shore.

Can't see what all the fuss is about; after all, erstwhile Labour defence minister Denis Healey was once a member of the Communist party......

(What's with the "@"?)

'Heart breaking'?? I am absolutely delighted that my 'wildest dreams' are being met with a leftie doing his best to keep attention on his glorious leader's dodgy past dealings!! Keep it up, Komrad! Another reply will keep this topic right to the top!!

The penalty for Treason in this country is execution. Wonder if will ever get to a trial to prove one way or the other. Comrade Corbyn is the best advert for voting Tory that we've ever had.

Not since 1998:-
Since the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 became law, the maximum sentence for treason in the UK has been life imprisonment.

I am reminded of a quote by a defecting Soviet security agent who was asked if the UK should be worried by infiltration into organisations such as CND, Stop the War, Mikitant (as it was in those days) etc.

“Not really”, he replied, “they haven’t got anything worth stealing”....

Alternatively, he could be the best reason for voting Socialist !!!
Just saying, to give a balance view...!!!

...Corbyn seems very reluctant to allow his personal files from that era to be published.
Just playing devil's advocate here, but who amongst us keeps personal 'files' for that length of time?

There are also theories that protests around secure sites such as Greenham Common were used as a cover to spy on said facilities and this would seem plausible, you just need enough easily encouraged gullible lefties. I think we have always had plenty of those.

I doubt a large number of people that were being used by the soviets ever knew they were doing so. This would fit in with the accusation of 'Useful Idiot'.

The story here is that, a potential PM and Chancellor may have been used in such a way and, if they were, we need to know about it. There is also the fact that after making such a fuss about people being made to reveal their earnings and tax returns, Corbyn seems very reluctant to allow his personal files from that era to be published.
Prophead ..ahem, cough !....

Seemingly you did in, erm, # 18

" Passing information to a Czech 'diplomat' during the 1980's in the cold war is absolutely NOT the same as speaking to a random diplomat today or being caught out in some shady deal by a fake sheikh.

We can only assume 2 things here. He was either fully complicit and acting against the interests of the UK in favour of his communist leanings or he really didn't realise he was talking to an agent, in which case he is a bigger idiot than most of us thought, including his Soviet 'handler'
.

But, with the ability to change tack like that, surely you will be in great demand at Cowes Week !...or as a sub-editor on the Mail.

However, lest I be accused of being churlish here and with the forthcoming novel in mind, it's possible you did so to entice the audience further into the web of intrigue it will doubtless contain.

The point is Krystal weíve no idea what the meetings were about. Perhaps an innocent cup of tea like your man says. Personally I agree that the selling secrets angle is probably wide of the mark, if only because nobody was daft enough to trust him with any. But to simply state itís all smears leaving the key questions unanswered wonít wash for anyone but the true faithful. Corbyn can teach us all about smears; just ask the widow of Leon Brittan who he viciously slandered on the basis of no evidence at all. Kinder gentler politics indeed!

I always think in the end when Mr Corbyn has been PM for a while and everything is falling apart he will be like Alec Guinness at the end of "Bridge on the River Kwai" when he reailises what he has done.

Can I post youtube clips? at 50+ secs

I used to think that the Soviet espionage services were quite efficient but I have to reassess that view now that it turns out their secret agents were Jeremy Corbyn and Donald Trump..

If labour are elected, Corbyn will only run the Labour Party for a few days. He will stand aside for Comrade Seumas Milne. Corrade Milne will not be an MP, so he will be given a Lordship.
Comrade Lord Milne will then implement their policy.
And if you think that is far fetched, remember what Labour did to get Red Ken in as the boss of the GLC. Immediately after the labour election win, the winning Labour leader was, er, "retired" by the Trots and Pinkoes.
