The Daily Mail reports that Britain’s spy agency, MI5, has issued a warning to British politicians that the Chinese Communist Party has allegedly been spying on politicians in that country, including several prime ministers, for nearly a decade.
The Daily Mail explains:
A warning memo sent to MPs said her ‘political interference activities on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party’ have been secretly monitored by the security services for years.
The twice married mother of two from the West Midlands has openly given around £670,000 to the Labour Party since 2005, including donating more than £600,000 to Brent North MP Barry Gardiner – who employed her son.
But yesterday it was revealed she also courted a wide range of Tory and Labour MPs, cultivating contacts with cabinet ministers and prime ministers in what was described by MI5 as a deeply sinister campaign of ‘interference across British democracy’.
