Did Murdoch’s Ex-wife Wendi Deng Spy for Chinese Military and Have an Affair with Tony Blair?

On November 25, 2013, China Gate published an article which stated that, according to a report from Pan Chinese, Wendi Deng, who News Corporation CEO Rupert Murdoch recently divorced, is a top female spy working for the General Political Department of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), in the Peoples Republic of China. Based on multiple Western media reports, the article also claims that Deng may have had an affair with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who "is the dupe in a Chinese spy plot." Tony Blair delivered a keynote speech at the "First China Philanthropy Forum" in Beijing on November 30th, 2012. "Now research by The Sunday Times has established that Blair’s keynote speech was hosted by a front organisation for the department of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) that runs psychological warfare and covert influence operations against foreign political and military leaders."
