Not easily no, but your original posting depends on it as much as my

Default BBC bias: Corbyn and le Penn interviewed on the Andrew Marr programme

I'd not call him left. He is what all Labour was before the rich socialists
decided to hijack the party. The problem is that the rest of his party are
rich socialists.

There seems to be an epidemic of trying to put various genies back into
bottles around at the moment. the federal EU the multiculturalism and
traditional socialism trying to put the new lot back.

Luckily I never saw either as the bbc has no decent interviewers these days
that politicians cannot tie in knots with non answers to other questions
they were not asked.

Marr gave us a sort of 'health warning' before the le Pen interview,
because she's 'far right'. No such warning before the Corbyn interview
about him being 'far left'.

Marine le Pen was pestered about her father's 30-year-old comments about
the Holocaust.

Corbyn on the other hand, wasn't even asked about the Labour Party's
current anti-Semitism.

It is obvious, really. Normal people need to be told that the person whose
views they agree with is a bad individual.

More fool you.

Which is about as left as you can get in mainstream politics in Britain,
silly.

Not all of them are rich.

There seems to be an epidemic of trying to put various genies back into

There are no genies and no bottles.

the federal EU the multiculturalism and traditional socialism trying to
put the new lot back.


That's always been the way politics works.

Luckily I never saw either as the bbc has no decent interviewers these
days that politicians cannot tie in knots with non answers to other

Corbyn has never managed to do that.

One's view of the above depends on how extremely right you think le Pen
is as opposed to how extremely left you think Corbyn is.

Personally I think le Pen is further right than Corbyn is left but I
suspect you might disagree.

Le Pen is a socialist.


Jean Marie Le Pen was a National Socialist.

His daughter is just his apprentice.

That's because his politics are well known in the UK and hers rather less
so.

the Holocaust.


They are a lot less than thirty years old. I saw them on French TV first
hand, and it was a straight off denial about the Holocaust. The vile
torturer was prominent (leader / president) in her party until 2015.


I never understand the position of Holocaust denial. All of the people who
they think are being slandered are now dead (that's the perpetrators, not
the survivors), so what's the point in arguing about whether they were
guilty or not?

And as principle, surely even the most rampant Neo-Nazi can't be arguing
that murdering, or even imprisonment, of a complete racial grouping is the
"right" thing to do.

Yes it does, so you can probably guess what I think. One way of
assessing how far to the left or right a politician is might be to
imagine how much good or bad they could do if they came to power. On
that basis I'd say Mr Corbyn is an extremist because Marxism would
destroy the economy and Stalinism would destroy free speech.
I can't imagine that Mme le Pen could do that much damage.

She would damage the Left immeasurably, as Trump will in the USA.

Leftism is a massive network of crony nepotism, all sharing a 'common
purpose' which is to enslave the citizens and bleed the nations dry to
fund their virtue signalling lifestyles.

It is Leftism that is being rejected all over Europe and the USA. AS the
scales drop from the eyes of all except the super deluded...


Party versus Proletariat.

And the plebs if not winning, have certainly socked it to the Party.

:-) ... and I don't think Corbyn is a Stalinist, whether he's
Marxist or not I don't really know.
