Nothing on Radio Four this morning about Ray Mawby, one of only two Ministers ever to have been a Soviet Bloc agent.
The other, John Stonehouse, was as right-wing as it was possible for a Labour MP to be until Tony Blair removed the right flank altogether.
Nor was there anything on the fact that it has not been "Moscow gold", but the American greenback, that has corrupted and coloured British politics in general and the Labour Party in particular.
Even if attention must be confined to the fairly distant past, then a programme on the activities of Michael Stewart or Sam Watson might be very well worth listening to.
