As the past of Quisling Ashton emerges, it raises questions of whether she committed treason in the past and questions of her reliability in the future.
It emerges that Quisling Ashton was not just any old member of CND but its Treasurer and possibly a Marxist in the pay of the security services of the USSR.
British security services were sufficiently concerned that they kept her under close surveillance that was only downgraded after the collapse of the USSR made CND a lower threat to Britain.
It would appear that Quisling Ashton was a Communist, strongly anti-American and pro-USSR. This raises the question of whether she will now be able to betray Europe.
