Revealed: The secret Soviet past of sleaze peer Truscott

#1
Just when Lord Trustcott thought it couldn't get any worse (assuming the below is true of course!):

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...-secret-Soviet-past-sleaze-peer-Truscott.html

The Labour peer at the heart of the Lords sleaze row has secret links to Soviet Russia, a Mail on Sunday investigation has uncovered.

The party faced calls for a new inquiry into Lord Truscott in the face of fresh information about his astonishing rise to power, which throws new light on the 'love at first sight' account of how he met his Russian wife Svetlana in the former Soviet Union.

At the time they married, Lady Truscott was an active member of the Communist Party and her father was a senior Red Army officer at a secret military institute connected to the Soviet equivalent of the SAS.

The Mail on Sunday has also obtained new details about the couple's private fortune, which includes a £1million home in Mayfair, a country home in Bath and property interests in Russia.

Meanwhile, Lord Truscott faces new questions about his political career, and the way he has used it to promote and defend Russian leader Vladimir Putin and the country in general.

This newspaper has been told that Lord Truscott was awarded his peerage by Tony Blair in 2004 after offering private advice on relations with Russia.

He chose a double-headed eagle identical to Russia's official emblem for his heraldic crest as Baron Truscott of St James, then joined Labour's defence team in the Lords before becoming a Minister.

Official records show how Lord Truscott used the Lords as a platform to defend Mr Putin after his decision to invade Georgia last year.

Last night, the 49-year-old peer refused to respond to the latest disclosures.

But Tory MP Patrick Mercer, an adviser to the Government on security matters, said: 'I would like some assurances that Lord Truscott's activities are wholly in the interests of Great Britain.

'Since Lord Truscott is not willing to address these matters it is incumbent on the Labour Party to do so.'

Lord Truscott is one of four Labour peers being investigated by police after he was recorded by undercover reporters claiming that for £2,000 a day he could influence legislation by 'identifying people...meeting people, talking with people'. He denies any wrongdoing.

In just 13 years, Lord Truscott rose from political obscurity as a borough councillor in Colchester, Essex, to a seat in the House of Lords.

He married a piece of Russian totty? In 1991. Goodness. Straight to Traitors' Gate with him. I mean it's not as if he was even a real Communist like Broon or Straw?

And the double eagle? Russia, Poland, anything that used to be in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. But nationalist, not communist.

He uses an Imperialist Russian device as his heraldic crest? I expect he's partial to the odd tipple of Lemon Vodka too. Good Lord, it's 1917 and the Reds are at the gates all over again. Someone better have a word with the Mercians quick!

What a lot of b*lls , still, it's an ideal opportunity to out KGB_Resident as the noble Lord :D

Bit expensive though £72,000 is a bit steep. Or have I misread the headline?

Mind you if it's tax deductible ....................

Is Lord Prescott a PORG, or is that an unflattering camera angle? Lady Truscott does look like she scrubs up uncommon well.
