MI5 labelled the Archbishop of Canterbury a subversive over anti-Thatcher campaigns - Telegraph: "When he launched a stinging attack on the Coalition government over policies 'for which no one voted', the Archbishop of Canterbury put himself squarely in the centre of a political storm.
Critics accused him of political bias, claiming it was a throwback to the days when his predecessors regularly clashed with past Conservative administrations.
But perhaps they should not be too surprised, as it can be revealed that the Archbishop has a long-standing left-wing political past.
The young Rowan Williams was once labelled 'a subversive' by a senior MI5 officer over his involvement with a group of Marxist, Trotskyite and socialist campaigners.
The secret briefing papers were seen by then Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher and circulated to MPs."
