Alleged Chinese spy, Christine Lee’s son worked for MP Barry Gardiner and they are not related biologically.
Barry Gardiner or Barry Strachan Gardiner is a former Shadow Secretary of State for energy and climate change along with International Trade. He served the two departments from 2016 to 2020. The British politician has been an MP for the Labor party since 1997.
Recently a Chinese spy or agent has been linked to Barry Gardiner by the intelligence agency in Britain, MI5. They warned that the Chinese agent Christine Lee has been active in the UK parliament through Barry and the netizens are curious to know about their relationship.
Barry Gardiner seems to be saying he was in contact with the security services, was aware of their concerns, knew Christine Lee was a security threat, but took money from her company and employed her son anyway.

How Is Barry Gardiner Related To Christine Lee?
Barry Gardiner’s relationship with the Chinese spy Christine Lee is unclear. According to MI5 the MP has some connection with Christine due to which the Chinese government is active in the UK parliament.
This is a huge statement to make, as this proves MP Barry to be a traitor. MI5 has apparently warned this and further actions are yet to be taken.
However, the shadow minister admitted that the Chinese spy’s son worked for him until his resignation. Apparently, Christine’s son Daniel was unaware of his mother’s illegal activity and was autonomously operating.
Therefore, it can be said that Barry and Christine are only linked to one another through Christine’s biological son as per the information. However, it is said that Christine also funded him for researchers about which the security services were aware.
Is Barry Gardiner Arrested For Link With Chinese Spy?
No, Barry Gardiner has not been arrested with his link to the Chinese spy as of now. Nothing has been proven and it is a statement passed by the intelligence agency MI5 which has not been discussed further.
The link came as a warning to the UK parliament which has been discarded by the MP himself. Barry says that he had been informing everyone about Christine’s involvement in donations to fund his researchers.
