    Perhaps no need for Food Banks would demonstrate what a compassionate country we are?

    Undoubtedly better than telling lies about politicians.

    JRM may prefer private charity to replace state provision, but I don't. I also consider JRM's opposition to abortion and homosexual marriage to be offensive.

    And while we're on the subject of lying about politicians, how many times do you see claims that Corbyn is "a terrorist sympathizer", or is "friends with Hamas". When it comes to throwing stones about "lies about politicians" the Right live in a greenhouse.

    Must be nice to have stuff to be ''offended'' at... a diverting hobby...

    I regard the catholic church's opposition to both as offensive. Its members are supposed to subscribe to its views.

    But whereas Rees-Mogg never said what you claimed, Corbyn did describe members of Hamas and Hezbollah as “friends". He did subsequently say he regretted doing so.

    Rees-Mogg, on the other hand, NEVER called the rise in food banks "uplifting" as you falsely claimed. Are you going to apologise for your false claim?

    Yes. It was a shorthand I shouldn't have used.

    Does anyone else remember the TV show GBH?

    First Fox News and now Breitbart UK. . . and you criticised my sourcing.

    I do. Robert Lindsay played a very convincing nasty, manipulative politician.

    That's it.

    And the leading "Antifa" turned out to be in the pay of the hard-right in order to further their cause.

    Which is to say that I asked you to cite a source. Meanwhile, I've posted footage of actual events and interviews.

    GBH was brilliant. Hatton always denied it was a portrait of him and Militant but using Palin as the school teacher playing the old school socialist was a masterstroke.

    It really was a very realistic depiction of how things were at that time in the north west. Alan Bleasdale came up with one of the best dramas of the early nineties based around what went on from the late seventies and into the eighties.

    Andrew Schofield is the spit of someone I knew in Militant.

    It seems history is repeating itself with champagne socialists like the current leaders of Momentum.

    I had long discussions with the guy I knew who was a member of Militant. His girlfriend was a true extremist from a landed family in Cheshire. She's now a C o E vicar and doesn't like to talk about what they did at the time.

    But I don't let up on her or her husband.

    and I did - from the BBC. Not that a quick google search wouldn't have turned up a whole bunch more. Sources really didn't need sighting. There were interviews with his teachers, family and friends.

    Strangely enough, Fox News and Breitbart did try to blur the issue. And being that they appear to be your preferred news sources, it's not surprising you were sceptical.
