JEREMY Corbyn met a communist spy at the height of the Cold War and warned him of a clampdown by British intelligence, according to secret files obtained by The Sun.
Mr Corbyn was vetted by Czech agents in 1986 and met one at least three times — twice in the Commons, it was claimed.
Earlier today a spokesman for the Labour leader said he met a diplomat, but never knowingly talked to a spy.
But expert Prof Anthony Glees said: “It shows breathtaking naivety from someone who wants to head the British Government.”
The Soviet-backed spies had a simple code-word for their new-found comrade Jeremy Corbyn: COB.
According to secret files, he passed on material about the arrest of an East German and was allegedly put on a list of Czechoslovakian state security team’s agents and sources.
Reports noted in 1986 he was: “Negative towards USA, as well as the current politics of the Conservative Government.”
His attitude towards Eastern Bloc countries was “positive” and he was “supporting the Soviet peace initiative”.
The Left in the West has always been very cozy with communists. This shouldn’t be much of a surprise.
