Venezuela links go back a long time. Ken Livingstone bought Venezuelan fuel for London buses back in the day. Cuba too. Russia, Syria, Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, Hussein, Gadaffi, anyone who opposes the USA, UK, Israel or NATO is their friend, no matter their crimes.
A senior Labour advisor, the man who wrote a chunk of the Labour manifesto, Andrew Murray is a “former” Communist Party senior member who is on record as declaring solidarity and support for the DPRK (only a few years ago) and is currently banned from travelling to Ukraine because he published anti-Ukrainian, pro-Putin propaganda on behalf of Moscow.
Murray is also pushing “Deep State” theories, much like Putins puppets do in the US.
