The latest silly attempt by right-wing media barons to discredit Jeremy Corbyn as a Cold War spy, comes from the ever more ridiculous Telegraph’s Gordon Rayner.
Rayner has persuaded former MI6 boss Sir Richard Dearlove (no, I assure you that’s NOT a made-up name taken from a 1970s James Bond film) as the latest establishment figure to try to persuade the country that electing Corbyn as PM would be tantamount to electing Blofeld to Number 10:
The only problem is, in his bizarre article Rayner ‘forgets’ to mention that Dearlove is now an oil executive in a company with offshore funds under threat from a Corbyn government, an adviser to a neo-liberal right-wing thinktank and most interestingly of all, according to the Chilcot report was responsible for the infamous dodgy Iraq War dossier so strongly criticised by Corbyn:
Now, either Rayner is so incompetent he didn’t notice these inconvenient facts, or so corrupt he deliberately omitted to mention them.
So which is it Gordon?
Incompetence or corruption?
