Both Trump *and *Corbyn should have the guts and the morality to condemn those in Virginia and Venezuela.

Saying anything against Mogg is critical analising, saying anything against Corbyn is Corbyn bashing ?

Of course Annie ! Let's support someone who

promotes mass social welfare programs
has the crowd chanting at mass rallies
has a focus on engaging the youth
uses iconography
is a leader who is above reproach and can do no wrong
wants to government to control everything

There's obviously something wrong with us.

"animosity between two groups of people who have different economic backgrounds and interests, and different political affiliations." There's a lot of it around.

Indeed there is Elegran.

True Primrose, so true . Venezuela, Cuba, Russia = utopia, what's a few bullets and incarceration against the danger of free speech, love the tee shirt,

Not quite sure what thread to place this nugget, from the Evening Standard, Jess Phillips brands left wing men the worst mysoginists. She's in there at the sharp end so I presume she knows what's she's talking about. Just wondering why this could be confused thought they would all be "new men" Any thoughts commrades ?

TerriBull Mon 14-Aug-17 13:20:58

Correction I need to downgrade the comment from mysoginist, she said "sexist"

Anniebach Mon 14-Aug-17 13:34:18

If far left then certaintly not "new men" , there was a time when there was just socialists and communists , now some communists say they are on the left. Communism has become a dirty word.

TerriBull Mon 14-Aug-17 13:49:48

Thanks for the insight Annie, I see I have spelt "misogynist" with y and i in the wrong places, so I've corrected it, in case I get pulled up that blush.

Anniebach Mon 14-Aug-17 14:27:01

Terri, with my level of spelling I wouldn't notice.

I grew up in a South Wales mining valley, remember clearly communists held meetings and labour held meetings , cannot recall a Tory held meeting ? I do remember a woman putting a photograph in her front room window,don't know why, but remember a new window being fitted. There was such hatred for him in mining communities because of his decision during the Tonapandy riots to send in the army, no I wasn't around in 1910?

Anniebach Mon 14-Aug-17 15:35:45

Trump is being critcise fir not condemning the far right mob in America, he just condemed both sides.

He has done what Corbyn does has he not?

Baggs Mon 14-Aug-17 16:46:15

Exactly, annie.

Meanwhile the person accused of killing someone and injuring others at the rally has been arrested and not allowed bail. Justice is being done with due process.
