Do you always applaud such idiocy?

Maybe send him around to these people to tell them of the joys of capitalism in the US...

Says the man who tried to deflect a critigue of socialism with a queue of impoverished people in the US. No one with any itelligence will have anything to do with the crack pot left at this stage.

If you stopped to think and observe for a second you'd note the picture was of people queuing for food and other items - who knows toilet roll was probably in there somewhere, so it was an appropriate response to the idiots tweet.

I'm not really sure what the rest of your post is supposed to mean - who are the 'crack pot' left and why is there a surge in left representation in the States, why are your mate sin Fox news so determined to run down various left win politicians in the States?

Perhaps if people had a little more intelligence then there wouldn't a crack pot in the White House - a man by the way who echos much of your own economic ethos.

A crack pot with a booming economy. Rates of pay for the lowest quintile rising at their fastest in 30 years. Lowest unemployment since the 60s. Stuff your mates in Venezuela and Cuba can only fantasize about.

And still they queue for food!! Who are my 'mates' in Cuba and Venezuela - perhaps if the trade and economic blockades were lifted both countries might perform a little better not to mention the ongoing destructive intervention in Venezuela but then again you're always on the side of imperialism ricky.

No I said that from my experience the average SP activist, not including their youth wing, is scarred from my experience. From what I have heard, I have never known any of their members, SWP members generally aren't. Richard Boyd-Barrett doesn't seem to me.
Rich boy Barrett is just living the dream while he waits for the parents (The Two biggest Capitalist in this city) to pop their clogs and he gets his millions. then lets see his true colours.

I think I must be some sort of capitalist socialist. I would like to be rich but I don't want to see anyone downtrodden for that to happen . Is this an uncommon ideal?
That makes you middleclass public service

Venezuela has had no blockade against it. Only the US blockades Cuba. They are in the sh1tter because of their crazy socialist polices.

FFS Ricky, you're continued worship at the alter of US imperialism does prompt you post some sh!te.

I'm no fan of the UN - bunch of cowards in the face of imperialism but when they're castiagting the US you know there's something going on.

US sanctions are killing Venezuelans, says former UN rapporteur

'The first UN rapporteur to visit Venezuela for 21 years has told The Independent the US sanctions on the country are illegal and could amount to “crimes against humanity” under international law.

Former special rapporteur Alfred de Zayas, who finished his term at the UN in March, has criticized the US for engaging in “economic warfare” against Venezuela which he said is hurting the economy and killing Venezuelans'

Communism has never worked and never will. But it is very good at murdering it's own peoples.
I was in Cuba last year and the cities/towns are like West Africa 3rd world countries. The people/prisoners live in crumbling slums, when you drive through it's small rural towns it's like the set of a spaghetti western.

I think the churchill quote says it really, socialism is a form or naive romanticism. As one ages, reality tends to temper the romanticism
Peter Hitchens has many a wise word to confirm your point via youtube videos

de Zayas is wrong. Obama introduced targeted sanctions against regime figures and their cronies. It was only this year that sanctions targeting the economy were brought by Trump in response to the rigged elections. Prior to January of this year the US was Venezuela's biggest market.
