  1. Kinnock and the Russians - treason?

    London MEP re-ignites Cold War controversy

    In 2006, London MEP Gerard Batten caused great controversy when he quoted highly placed intelligence sources that denounced Romano Prodi as a "KGB asset" during Strasbourg plenary. His sources included a former deputy head of KGB, as well the dissident and former KGB officer Alexander Litvinenko, who was to pay for his dissidence with his life just a few months later.
    Today, in the same chamber, Batten made another allegation citing highly placed sources, using still classified evidence from the archives of the Gorbachev Foundation.

    Batten stated that former leader of the British Labour Party, and former EU Commissioner, Neil Kinnock approached the then Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev during the 1980s to discuss a proposal to halt the Trident missile project.

    He invited Lord Kinnock to account for himself, suggesting that if the allegation is true, then Lord Kinnock may be guilty of treason.

    These allegations should be viewed in the context of the final years of the Cold War, when the Soviet Union was weakening, and western military superiority helped lead to the dissolution of that polity, and the fall of the Berlin Wall. Batten's allegations seem to suggest that Kinnock's actions could have actually jeopardised the eventual outcome that we are celebrating now, twenty years after the fall of the wall.

    The full text of Gerard Batten's speech follows:



    23RD November 2009

    "Russian exile Pavel Stroilov recently published revelations about the collaboration between the British Labour Party and the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

    Soviet archival documents state that in the 1980s Neil Kinnock, as leader of the opposition, approached Mikhail Gorbachev through secret envoys to see how the Kremlin would respond if a Labour Government stopped the implementation of the Trident nuclear missile programme.

    If the report given to Mr Gorbachev is true, it means that Lord Kinnock approached one of Britain's enemies in order to seek approval regarding his party's defence policy, and had he been elected, Britain's defence policy.

    If this report is true then Lord Kinnock would be guilty of treason.

    The documents now available must be investigated at the highest possible level by the British authorities and Lord Kinnock given the opportunity to answer the Soviet evidence".

  2. Interesting, very interesting.

    However, any 'comment' relating to Kinnock is likely to be so long, tedious, interminable even, that it may well crash the site.
  3. Is he still alive?
  4. Alive well and riding the EU gravy train Link
  5. Oh please someone inject Kinnock................ oh his wife too just incase!

    Riding the gravy train RE-silly, they have diverted it right down their fat money grabing throats :x
  6. Having met Mr Kinnock a number of times this does not even surprise me, the man is a complete cnut, without a glimer of honour or integrity,
  7. Not bad for a bunch of we are all equal socialists is it.

    Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men ( John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton, first Baron Acton (1834–1902)).
  8. Kinnock the man who ...

    When an MP was out to remove the House of Lords from our Parliamentary system . When he became a Lord he then claimed he would be fighting from within to change the system . Draw your own conclusions concerning integrity .
    When an official or some appointment in the European Parliament said he would remove financial corruption ... he came ... he got a lot of money and another fine pension ...he went ... nothing was changed .

    The only outsanding memory I have of this man is when both he and his wife , now also fighting the House of Lords from within , fell into the sea in a photoshoot .
  9. He and his harpy wife have screwed the system for over 8 million quid in the last few years, they are the people who invented expenses fraud

  10. That is a complete lie 8O
    They are too stupid to have Invented it, just tagged onto it in a big way :wink:
  11. Careful. You are at risk of implying that Kinnock was a great, bad man. Instead of a worthless, blathering, hypocritical incompetent. Much bad, no greatness.
