In 2013, our Defence Secretary Michael Fallon – who witnesses say was visibly drunk – had to be forcibly separated from an attractive woman by a government minder at a posh party.

The woman turned out to be a Russian spy – who had been paid to work as a honey-trap by a Russian energy company with close ties to Putin.

This is of course our Defence Secretary – the man supposedly in control of the entire defence of our nation including our nuclear deterrent.

MI5 were probably not very relieved that the incident happened at a party where there happened to be minders – because I would imagine a British Defence Secretary who gets so drunk he can be taken in by obvious Russian spies can’t be ‘minded’ by James Bond and co day and night.

Mind you, Fallon has a dishonourable history of ‘tackling’ women at parties while drunk.

As an example – at another posh party in 2010 – the man now in charge of the defence of our realm drunkenly went up to author Bryony Gordon and openly called her a slut.

Which is as good an example as any of the appalling lack of moral and professional rectitude residing in the bunch of incompetent clowns now in charge of our country.

PS. Fallon was also of course famously banned from driving for 18 months in 1983 after admitting a drink driving offence during the general election campaign. Let’s hope he stays sober enough while he’s Defence Secretary to avoid accidentally starting a Third World War or accidentally handing over all of our defence secrets to Putin.
