Zinoviev letter

One of the most notorious political outrages of the 20th century the ‘Zinoviev letter’ was a 1924 scandal surrounding a document in letter form written by the Jew Zinoviev. The content encouraged agitation “in the armed forces (including a loan to the Bolshevik government)” and implicated Ramsay Macdonald, the first Labour Prime Minister in the Jewish Bolshevik conspiracy leading to the fall of the first Labour government. Nevertheless, the system is so corrupt that despite Macdonald’s Communist connections and his close relationship with Vladimir Lenin it did not prevent him returning to form a second government (1929-31) or having the largest mandate ever won by a British Prime Minister at a democratic election during the National Government of 1931-35.
