Former British MP George Galloway comments on the revelation that subcontracted work from MI5 and MI6 targeted not only Russia but also smeared British politicians whom they perceived to be "pro-Russian"; those smeared include not only himself but Jeremy Corbyn and others in his party.
Not since the "Zinoviev Letter" - an MI6 canard, a forgery which brought down the first Labour government almost a century ago in which the Soviet Communist politician Grigory Zinoviev appeared to be giving instructions from Moscow to the leaders of the British Labour movement - has a British state operation against the Labour Party been so comprehensively unmasked. Of course it is likely that more, maybe hundreds more, have been mounted but none have been undeniably exposed until this week.
