  • Con, Lib Dem- Lab? All change.

    Two of the three traditional British parties have started leadership contests - the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats. Come on Jeremy do the right thing and make it a full house!

    That's a sobering thought: the only major party leader in the UK with any traction at all is three steps to the left of Leon Trotsky.

      Sadly enough, as on the Continent and in the USA , the yuppies and snowflakes take over.

        Jeremy is the worst of them by a mile. He's still dreaming of the socialist utopia without realising that, despite its many shortcomings, a free democratic western society with a capitalist economic system and an element of socialist redistribution through its taxation and welfare systems are the closest we have ever come to a utopian society.

            That depends on what is meant with 'the socialist utopia'. For example our friends from across the puddle tend to refer the Nordic countries as such. I haven't really dug too deeply into what JC stands for but it all depends on how far he happens to be aiming for.

              Well McDonnell is Corbyn's key ally and shadow chancellor:

              John McDonnell asked in 2006 who were his most significant influences:

              “The fundamental Marxist writers of Marx, Lenin and Trotsky, basically.”
