Chinese agent infiltrating Parliament, MI5 warns

Post by Earnest » January 14, 2022, 12:05 am

It sounds like the spying is happening now but I'd have thought that Tory MPs would have been falling over themselves to make a quick buck.
MI5 has issued a rare warning to MPs that a Chinese agent has infiltrated Parliament to interfere in UK politics.
An alert from the security service said Christine Ching Kui Lee "established links" for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) with current and aspiring MPs.
She then gave donations to politicians, with funding coming from foreign nationals in China and Hong Kong.
It comes after a "significant, long-running" investigation by MI5, Whitehall sources told the BBC.
One of the MPs funded by Ms Lee was Labour's Barry Gardiner, who received over £420,000 from her in five years.
But Mr Gardiner said he had always made MI5 aware of the donations.

Particularly when your leader and party are attracting a lot of headlines.

In that case, we should ignore it.
