China denies ‘spy’ allegations as Christine Lee is exposed by MI5 to have given £700k to Labour.

SPOOKS on Thursday blew the cover on a suspected Communist spy at the heart of British democracy.

MI5 accused Labour donor Christine Lee of channelling cash from Beijing to influence parliament as it publicly warned MPs and peers to avoid her.

The Chinese lawyer has donated nearly £700,000 to the Labour Party, mostly through the office of Corbynista MP Barry Gardiner, who until confronted by the Security Services yesterday, employed her son.

But Lib Dem leader Ed Davey also accepted a £5,000 donation from Lee’s law firm while in the Cabinet, and Theresa May handed her a peace prize — which was last night rescinded.

Lee has been snapped with ex-Tory PM David Cameron, former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and his then deputy Tom Watson but was yesterday exposed as an agent of the Chinese Communist Party.

Tensions between the UK and China have been stretched recently by the superpower’s Covid lies, dire human rights abuses and escalating espionage attacks.

PM Boris Johnson warned late last year that China was never going to evolve towards being a free market democracy.

But in a dramatic hardening of relations with Beijing, MI5 publicly blew the whistle on the suspected agent after years of investigation of her activities in Westminster.

In an extremely rare move, the Security Service issued an alert and picture of Lee, accusing her of “facilitating financial donations to serving and aspiring politicians”.

Lee, who has also been snapped shaking hands with China’s leader Xi Jinping, has been a long-time funder of Mr Gardiner’s office through her law firm Christine Lee & Co, which also works for the Chinese Embassy in London.
