Ben Bradley Deletes ‘Spy’ Tweet About Jeremy Corbyn After Labour Leader Threatens Legal Action
Tory MP deletes tweet saying Jeremy Corbyn sold British secrets to "Communist spies".

Tory’s vice-chairman, Ben Bradley, has deleted a tweet claiming that the Labour Leader sold British secrets to “Communist spies” after Jeremy Corbyn said he would take legal action against him.

Corbyn’s spokesman said he had instructed lawyers to tell Mansfield MP Bradley to withdraw the “libelous” tweet or face legal action.

The comments came after Bradley tweeted on Monday that Corbyn had “sold British secrets to communist spies”.

“Corbyn sold British secrets to communist spies… get some perspective mate!! Your priorities are a bit awry!”, Bradley tweeted.

“Jeremy instructed solicitors to contact Ben Bradley to delete his libellous tweet or face legal action,” Corbyn’s spokesman said.

Formerly, a spokesman said that Corbyn had met a Czech diplomat for tea in the House of Commons but said any claim he was “an agent, asset or informer for any intelligence agency is entirely false and a ridiculous smear”.

The gossip that Corbyn was a paid agent has been denied by the director of the Czech security service archive, Svetlana Ptacnikova, who told the BBC their files suggested Corbyn was seen as a potential contact but he was not catalogued as an informant.

Labour has said: “[Corbyn] neither has nor offered any privileged information to this or any other diplomat. The former Czechoslovak agent Jan Sarkocy’s account of his meeting with Jeremy was false 30 years ago, is false now and has no credibility whatsoever.”

During the reshuffle in January, Bradley was appointed the Conservatives’ vice-chair in charge of youth engagement.

Later, he was forced to apologise after blogs were uncovered in which he said unemployed people should have vasectomies to cut costs to the taxpayer rather than continuing to have children they could not afford to support.
