Agent Provocateur

An MP known for his weakness for the fairer sex was singled out by an alleged Russian spy, Whitehall believes.

In what the tabloids like to call a ‘honeytrap’, the Liberal Democrat Mike Hancock, 64, was introduced to the glamorous 25-year-old Katia Zatuliveter on a visit to Moscow.

No doubt beguiled by her personal qualities, the duped MP then agreed to give a job and parliamentary pass to the suspected agent – handing her in one fail swoop three years’ access to official documents on defence policy.

Following the intervention of MI5, the MP’s sexy aide is now facing deportation on the grounds that her suspected espionage is not ‘conducive to national security’.

A Westminster source recalled: ‘She would walk around in very short skirts and high heels with Hancock and they would be seen having lunch together. Certainly some thought she was charming and intelligent.’

It’s not exactly Wikileaks, but does go to show that Russian spies are not treated as small fry these days.
