    Corbygeddon

    Fear mongering or a taste of things to come should comrade Corbyn become Prime Minister?


    Britain's billionaires 'prepare to flee country amid fears Jeremy Corbyn will be next Prime Minister'




    Britain's wealthiest individuals are preparing to leave the country amid belief Jeremy Corbyn will become Prime Minister, it was reported.

    Billionaires and multimillionaires are said to be making plans to protect their fortunes, which include moving their assets and businesses overseas, in preparation of tax increases should the Labour leader enter Downing Street.

    According to The Sunday Times, which today publishes its annual Rich List, individuals could take up to 1 trillion out of Britain amid fears over what has been dubbed 'Corbygeddon'.

    The newspaper reported that the head of Coutts, the Queen's bank, said clients were more concerned with Corbyn than by Brexit and that a tax expert had helped a number of people with a net wealth of more than 500 million, totalling more than 5 billion, leave Britain over the past year.

    Millionaire philanthropist Alfie Best, who built his 285 million fortune through mobile home parks, reportedly said he would pull his personal wealth out of Britain should Mr Corbyn become Prime Minister.

    Yeah, because it’s not as if one percent of the world’s population own 45 per cent of its wealth or anything obscene like that.

    says the hypocrite who has chosen to leave the uk and work tax free in the gulf.

    you, just like everyone else on the planet want to maximise your earnings, and keep hold of them.

    you are just another champagne socialist, a blinkered disciple of the politics of envy, shouting out your righteous beliefs so long as you can keep yourself immune from their toxic and impoverishing effects.

    That's not so good for the ol' good England, when the good people would sail off on their beautiful yachts... (also Mr. A? or has he already cast anchor in Israel?)

    Playing by the rules doesn't necessarily mean that you agree with them.

    Oh look. If its not TD's resident retard. Having a break from your Thailand tour guide exams nuff nuff? Or did you run out of tesla polish again?

    I must admit the story of Noah is a complete mystery to me, but no more so than why God allows imbecilic retards like you to be born and inflict your idiocy on other human beings.... Just one of the many mysteries of the universe yet to unfold.

    BTW a quick tip on passing your exam. Try coming out of mummy's basement and actually going there, instead of living your pathetic life through all of us that have.
    TTFN...Retard.

    Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has promised to give financial and political support to Cuba’s brutal Communist regime under a future Labour government.

    The vow comes despite widespread accounts of arbitrary detention, beatings and political repression.

    Standing in front of a Che Guevara flag, senior Left-winger Mr McDonnell said that Britain under Labour would be the repressive state’s ‘staunchest ally’.

    The event, held at the headquarters of the RMT, one of the most militant and Left-wing trade unions in Britain, saw delegates waving Cuban flags while a Cuban flag also flew from a pole atop the building.

    Guests at the event in Clapham, South London, enjoyed a free bar, a hog roast and even indulged in Havana cigars at 10 each, as well as music from a Cuban salsa band and the raffle prize was two return air tickets to Cuba.

    The speech came just two weeks after Mr McDonnell distanced himself from the Cuban regime, claiming ‘it was never socialism’ in an interview with The Times.

    His speech was greeted with rapturous applause from the 200-strong crowd before Mr McDonnell posed for pictures for one of Cuba’s tightly controlled newspapers as attendees chanted ‘Viva Cuba’ and ‘Viva socialismo’ +3

    In a speech last week to the Cuba Solidarity Campaign, his promise to stand with Cuba in the face of sanctions by US President Donald Trump was in stark contrast to Mr McDonnell’s recent attempts to reassure the City that a future Labour government would not have a hidden radical agenda.

    Stark contrast? It is not a hidden agenda if you tell it beforehand like Mr McDonnell did.

    That's what the friends are for (fortunately, no meddling recorded):

    Mike Pompeo tells Jewish leaders he would 'push back' against Corbyn

    US secretary of state made comments in recording leaked to Washington Post

    Labour has accused Donald Trump’s top official, Mike Pompeo, of trying to stop Jeremy Corbyn becoming prime minister, after he was caught on tape telling Jewish leaders that he would “push back” against the party’s leadership.

    In a recording leaked to the Washington Post, the US secretary of state was asked what he would do if Corbyn were to be elected as prime minister, after sustained criticism over Labour’s handling of accusations of antisemitism within the party.

    The questioner said: “Would you be willing to work with us to take on actions if life becomes very difficult for Jews in the UK?” In response, Pompeo appeared to suggest that he would seek to intervene in the debate before Corbyn had a chance to become prime minister.

    “It could be that Mr Corbyn manages to run the gauntlet and get elected,” he said on the recording. “It’s possible. You should know, we won’t wait for him to do those things to begin to push back. We will do our level best. It’s too risky and too important and too hard once it’s already happened.”

    A Labour spokesman said: “President Trump and his officials’ attempts to decide who will be Britain’s next prime minister are an entirely unacceptable interference in the UK’s democracy.” He added that the party was “fully committed to the support, defence and celebration of the Jewish community and is implacably opposed to antisemitism in any form”.
