Corbyn threatens Tory MP over Communist spies claim

Corbyn threatens Tory MP over Communist spies claim

The Labour leader said newspapers which made the reports were going "a little bit James Bond" over the "increasingly wild and entirely false" claims.

He dismissed the allegations as "lies and smears".

He replied: "I am sorry the Daily Mail has reduced itself to reproducing some nonsense that was written in The Sun".

"As Britain leaves the European Union, what we most urgently now need is clarity from all political parties on how they will promote and protect jobs through the best possible Brexit deal".

Asked directly by BBC Breakfast presenter Steph McGovern, who was acting as compere for the event, if he was a "Czech spy", he said: "No".

Earlier this week, The Sun reported that Corbyn had apparently unwittingly met multiple times with a Communist spy in the 1980s, citing Czech government files that list him as one of the security team's "sources".

The Sun reported that a newly-released archive in the StB's headquarters in Prague included a Sarkocy report that read: "Jeremy CORBYN, Labour MP of the House of Commons of the British Parliament, contact initiated 25.11.1986".

Jeremy Corbyn is vowing to take on the City of London if he becomes prime minister, saying finance should be "the servant of industry, not the masters of us all".

"Followed up to the degree of RS (person of interest) "COB".

AI Financial Services LLC Invests $3.05 Million in Ford Motor (F)
Zacks Investment Research cut General Motors from a "hold" rating to a "sell" rating in a research report on Tuesday, January 2nd. Stumpf Capital Management LLC acquired a new stake in General Motors during the fourth quarter valued at approximately $131,000.

In a statement provided to Business Insider, a spokesperson for Corbyn denied the claim. "He has an active supply of information on British intelligence services".

BBC Diplomatic Editor Mark Urban revealed on Tuesday that he had talked to former United Kingdom intelligence agents who also dismissed the spying claims as "nonsense".

Britain's Labour Party has brushed off claims by a former spy for then Czechoslovakia that its leader Jeremy Corbyn had knowingly cooperated with the communist intelligence agency, calling it a "ridiculous smear".

A spokesman for the Labour leader said he had instructed solicitors to tell Mansfield MP Ben Bradley to take down the "libellous" tweet or face legal action.

"The former Czechoslovak agent Jan Sarkocy's account of his meeting with Jeremy was false 30 years ago, is false now and has no credibility whatsoever".

Mr McDonnell, who was claimed to have regularly met a KGB agent, including an encounter in Guildford supposedly witnessed by Mr Sarkocy, said the claims were "ridiculous and false".

She said: "I think it's for individual MPs to be accountable for their actions in the past but also where there are allegations of this sort MPs should be prepared to be open and transparent".

Despite documentation from Czech archives suggesting that Mr Corbyn had indeed met Mr Sarkocy on three occasions, the former spy's claims to have obtained "good information" from the unabashedly leftwing MP look unconvincing.
