BARONESS ASHTON ALLEDGED TO HAVE TAKEN MONEY FROM SOVIETS!
Britain's new EU foreign policy chief Baroness Ashton came under fire for her links to the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament yesterday. The surprise pick as Brussels' first foreign minister was cross-examined about whether she ever accepted money from the Soviet Union during her days with CND.
Lady Ashton was treasurer of the group during the 1980s when it campaigned to stop U.S. nuclear missiles being deployed in the UK to protect Britain from Russia. She came under fire from Tory MEP Charles Tannock as she spent two hours answering questions from European Parliament members on how she plans to represent the EU on the global stage.
Allegations that CND accepted funds from the communist regime in Moscow have been made by Vladimir Bukovsky, a former Soviet dissident who has said it is 'very likely' that CND received ' unidentified income' from Moscow in the 1980s.
This matter must be CLEARED UP, BEFORE SHE TAKES UP HER POST!
