Venezuela: Proof Corbyn’s no ‘Man of Peace’

This is a cross-post by Paul Canning

Picture of Maikol Mendoza by Cristian Hernandez
Maikol Mendoza is a 17 year old Venezuelan who finally got a chance of life with a rare kidney transplant. The rat infested, medicine deprived state of his country’s health care system has now deprived him of that second chance.

You poor deluded fools, he’s already won

This is a guest post by Phil Carmel
While science has now conclusively annihilated the myth that lemmings commit mass suicide by jumping off cliffs, the same is sadly not true of Labour moderates.

Andrew “Defeat NATO” Murray

Will Jeremy Corbyn condemn the shooting of Khalid Masood?

Will Jeremy Corbyn have the courage of his stated convictions and condemn the killing of Khalid Masood by armed police yesterday?
Corbyn has stated on record that he was “not happy” with police or security services operating a “shoot to kill” policy in the event of a terror attack.
In November 2015, Jeremy Corbyn was asked by [...]
