Mark Steel: Labour's leaked Mark Steel's In Stockport 2 months ago   05:35

The Independent
Several Conservatives have taken issue with Labour’s pledge to be ‘extremely cautious’ before using the nuclear deterrent. What sort of 1970s nonsense is that? If you’re going to be extremely cautious about dissolving millions of civilians in an apocalyptic firestorm, you might as well bring back outside toilets.

The 1970's were cool.

Paul Wedlock Under Corbyn's  None Brexit Directive-UK will be a Vassal STATE!  The level of poverty will be beyond measure! Only the Greedy selfish Greg Clark's Of This World will benefit?  In lifeless money's ONLY!
Under Article 50s EU rules: the acting Government must see it through.

I do enjoy debating the nationalisation of railways in the UK with right wing idiots. I'll help them out. Currently you pay your ticket and Richard Branson takes that profit every year and hides it IRONICALLY in a place called the *Virgin Is.*
However in state ownership paradigm any profits made go back into supporting the railways or our NHS. It's a tricky one I know but hey that's why they're so brainy right?

We no longer watch TV( we hated watching bbc and its all bias views) and do not even own a tv set any more... as its all about shit and none of the politicians who sits in the parliament gives a damn about us........Mark Steel your views are so genuine , factual, exact and you tell them so sincerely and for that we all THANK YOU........maybe there is still some hope for ordinary, hard working, tax paying people like us who still can not make ends meet and yet as you also point out that those bank managers, BHS 's owner who pays himself billions and no one goes after them ..................and yet if I owe £ 5 pounds , only FIVE pounds to the tax man............they chase me like pack of wolves.........we are honourable people who doesnt really care who makes how many millions but when inequality , injustice subsequently, a bias system is in force then yes WE DO CARE.........!!!! Like you and for that thank you...

Good article, very satirical and funny and good points too, but Corbyn is a self styled Socialist, McDonnell is a self confessed Marxist a terrible ideology that has cost countless deaths. Corbyn says he is a Socialist, all well and good but where has it ever been applied that has given the people the most happiness, opportunity to progress, wealth and civic society? Its been a failure wherever its been applied. Whats the point of trying something over and over again with the same results?
