Er Helle Thorning-Schmidts svigerfar landsforræder?

Zagladin’s records also note that the former leader of the British Labour Party, Neil Kinnock, approached Gorbachev—unauthorized, while Kinnock was leader of the opposition—through a secret envoy to discuss the possibility of halting the United Kingdom’s Trident nuclear-missile program.

The minutes of the meeting between Gorbachev and the envoy, MP Stuart Holland, read as follows:

In [Holland’s] opinion, Soviet Union should be very interested in liquidation of “Tridents” because, apart from other things, the West—meaning the US, Britain and France—would have a serious advantage over the Soviet Union after the completion of START treaty. That advantage will need to be eliminated. . . . At the same time Holland noted that, of course, we can seriously think about realisation of that idea only if the Labour comes to power. He said Thatcher . . . would never agree to any reduction of nuclear armaments.

Kinnock was vice president of the European Commission from 1999 to 2004, and his wife, Glenys, is now Britain’s minister for Europe. Gerard Batten, a member of the UK Independence Party, has noted the significance of the episode.

“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 defense policy and, had he been elected, Britain’s defense policy,” Batten said to the European Parliament in 2009. “If this report is true, then Lord Kinnock would be guilty of treason.”

An unusual flying object disrupted an anti-government rally held by Russian chess champion turned Kremlin critic, Garry Kasparov, press reports said Thursday.

Kasparov’s plea for unity against Vladimir Putin – being delivered to a group of 500 Kremlin critics in Moscow – was interrupted when a remote-controlled flying penis flew through the room.

The device – which appeared to be a modified twin-rotor toy helicopter – caused an immediate commotion, UK daily the Metro reported.

“I think we have to be thankful for the opposition’s demonstration of the level of discourse we need to anticipate,” said Mr. Kasparov after the attack, according to Canada’s National Post newspaper.

“Also, apparently most of their arguments are located beneath the belt,” he added.
