A minister in Tony Blair’s government who resigned over an undeclared home loan to Peter Mandelson has condemned as “a lie” claims that he was a communist spy during the Cold War.

Geoffrey Robinson, a Labour MP since 1976, said the allegations that he had passed secrets to Czechoslovakia in the late 1960s were a “complete fabrication”.

Not that he was, of course, but if he was he wouldn’t have been the only one now, would he? No one who has ever even heard of the accounts of the Morning Star would think that.
