Clegg in sex and spying scandal

Well, not Nick Clegg so much as his great great aunt Moura Budberg.

I have written an article for the New Statesman website telling the story of Nick's scandalous forebear who was the lover of H. G. Wells, Maxim Gorky and a famous British spy, and quite possibly indulged in some espionage of her own.

Given my nostalgic feelings for the Statesman in the 1970s, I am feeling rather chuffed.

For a photograph of Moura, see an earlier posting of mine.
