Kingsley Amis was on MI5 watch list

For those of you who don’t already know, Amis was in his youth a crypto-communist. He became a die-hard conservative later in life. Big Margaret Thatcher fan. For Amis and many other lefties, the brutal 1956 Soviet invasion of Hungary was the final straw.

Yes, saw this reported in The Times. Quite a turn-around politically that Mr Amis had!
