I confess, I too was a smuggler in the past.

It’s true, I admit it. As a young man, I was a criminal smuggler of controversial contraband into the then communist country of Czechoslovakia.

This shocking admission comes in the light of a series of exposes over recent weeks of other now prominent Conservative party activists who, in their own way, nibbled away in their youth at the foundations of the communist bloc, and who can look back with pride and say: “Yes, I was there, and I did what I could”.

My full and unrepentant confession for the crimes of my youth has been published today by the leading political blog site, Conservative Home.

The full text of my confession can be found here.
