But it was obvious that Madeley trying to link Lynch to Marxism. It was twaddle and he was called out.
Nick Robinson asked exactly the same question but Mick Lynch was happy to answer without being so rude. I don't think it is twaddle to give Mick the chance to refute such allegations and he did give a good answer to Nick Robinson that certainly made me review my opinion of him.
Whatever Maddely 'meant, what he said about 'You want to destroy us all' was ridiculous and probably deliberately framed that way to propagate the image of Marxists as evil incarnate. Marxists don't want to destroy people, they want to destroy 'the capitalist system'. And, frankly, there's a lot about capitalism that could do with being destroyed. Like the way money in it flows upward to be concentrated in the hands of the already wealthy.
If anything, it's capitalism that's destroying people...
Mick Lynch has stated that unless he is given cast iron guarantees that there will be no redundancies, he will not negotiate. How can any employer give anyone a cast iron guarantee of this nature? Especially not, given the precarious state of our country’s finances. Perhaps one of you who like him so much, would tell me?
