Gott it

Mark Steyn, shining a spotlight on all those book reviews I read in the 1980s and 1990s in the leftist Guardian newspaper…

“former Guardian literary editor Richard Gott. … was recruited by the KGB in the Seventies and served as a Soviet “agent of influence” until the USSR imploded in the Nineties.”

There’s probably a whole 800-page scholarly book to be written, giving a calm and lucid overview of such leftist infiltration in Britain the 1980s and 90s. Showing exactly how and why and when the far-left and its fellow travellers wormed into various parts of civil society. I don’t happen to know of such a book, offhand.
