A metting of a group of commies, I think I'll give it a miss.
Yeah you probably have a date with the KKK to beat up some migrants or Muslims :roll:

I see Rob Griffiths got 187 votes in the last UK GE
I hadn't realised he was that popular

Thank you comrade, sober and correct analysis.Such a shame, the left continues its discordance at the expense of its natural base and support.
Tom O'Leary - note, he's one of ours :)

The Far Left is riddled with fantasists, I am afraid, especially the ones who think they can tear it all up over night and start again.

The first people to suffer from "Burn It Down" are the poor old poor.

Socialism used to be for pragmatic types - whether working or middle class.

Indeed but not by supporting Brexit (I'm shocked that Rots is a Brusselsphile!) but by acting as the human resource management department for Neo-Liberal Globalism and by encouraging degenerative cultural and moral phenomena that internally sap the will and ability of the popular classes to resist Capitalism let alone build a Socialist society.

The left are all over the place with their views on the EU.
Either they are split or they have no clarity on what defines "left wing",
There are several Communists and Marxists at the heart of the EU regime pushing an anti-nationalist agenda.

The EU can be seen as a grand compromise between the left and the right. Free market + social protection. Thats why both the far right and far left hate it.

When Tories and far left socialists interests align you know bad things are around the corner.

Except the corporations and right wing economic supporters have done far better out of it ........ The centre left have spent the last 3 decades navel gazing at minority social issues ( still are) while the free marketeers have shaped free market economies to the benefit of big business ......And they've let it happen , in fact even supported and campaigned for it

The best example is the centre lefts belief ( the hypocrisy of which was wonderfully displayed by Blair Horgan on Newstalk recently as he tied himself in illogical knots) in uncontrolled free movement of people/ immigration ........I've nothing against immigration , just think it should be controlled , the biggest beneficiary of a constant supply of transient cheap labour is big business as it keeps a lid on wages and conditions ....yet the unions/ centre left support it unconditionally ....madness

I cant make head or tail of the left on the EU, they have gone from a historic stance of being anti EU, and indeed SF were opposed to the creation of the EU and opposed every European treaty, and now they come out in support of the EU, its plain nuts.
