Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
i suppose it all comes down to class, and if you trust Mr Corbyn.

my mum paid her taxes, rates, worked over forty years - and when she got cancer there was no money for a stairlift to get upstairs for the bog. and it was at a time i had no money , having been forced to give up work.

And yet , all the most expensive QC's in the country are looking forward to this case - as a high profile. Public money - amiddle class cause celebre and suddenly no problem. Its like what people are saying about the Notre Dame fire. What a pity Grenfell tower wasn't full of old paintings and stained glass instead of people.

let's suppose you are right Jim. Assad is a monster that the US have backed - like they backed Apartheid, Pinochet, Saddam Hussein -for a while.

isn't that the realities of power. sometimes there are very limited options. corrupt south vietnam rather than Stalinist Ho Chi Minh; Saddam Hussein rather than Khomeini: etc.

Assad rather than ISIS. That's the kind of decision Corbyn will have to make if he's PM. Wilson refused to involve us in Vietnam, and the economy paid the price. Blair went along with the Americans and paid the price electorally and in his own party.
I don't think he fancies it. Its easier to fart and parp in opposition like Kinnock did. Thus we get this support for ISIS members at a time of austerity for the rest of the country. The announcement British Army criminals will be brought to justice. Opposition to any form of Brexit that May proposes - when most of his constituencies voted leave.

What does he have to do to get through to you...he's really happy where he is.
