Fake News – The Zinoviev Letter

My father told me all about  the Zinoviev Letter, which was written around the time of the 1924 General Election and published in the Daily Mail.

He certainly knew all about the letter, but I doubt he was anything to do with its production, as he’d only have been twenty at the time.

But in the 1920s and 1930s he moved in left-wing Tory political circles, so he probably knew the truth, even if all he told me was the basic story, you can now read on Wikipedia.

The Zinoviev letter would certainly be considered Fake News today.
