Politics Corbyn

Labour has attacked International Trade Secretary Liam Fox over comments he made about Jeremy Corbyn’s Cold War links.

Mr Fox told BBC One’s The Andrew Marr Show: “I certainly believe and I think it is true that Jeremy Corbyn and others were very useful to the Soviet Union during the Cold War because they undermined the arguments of the West.

“I think in the broadest sense he was undermining the security of our country by siding with the Soviet Union in that argument and I think that was very damaging to the country.”

A spokesman for the Labour party said: “Liam Fox should focus on his job and not give credence to claims that everyone knows are entirely false and ridiculous.”
