The Tories have always lied about Labour being somehow in cahoots with the enemy, whichever enemy that happens to be.
They’ve done it going all the way back to the 1920s and the Zinoviev Letter, forms of which were re-run again by the Scum in the 1987 election, and then by the Times when it smeared Michael Foot as a KGB spy.
Well, the Soviet Union had collapsed, and the government is busily trying to ingratiate itself with the capitalist giant that is ‘Communist’ China, so they can’t exactly run another Red Scare. So they’re trying to smear him as a supporter of Islamist terrorism.This is part of a strategy Conservatives on both sides of the Atlantic have been running for about ten years or so now.
