Table Manners

Hopelessly out of his depth, Owen Smith wants "ISIL round the table".

To the visible shock of Jeremy Corbyn, who, whatever one may think of his specific views, has been informed about the Middle East for 40 years.

How are Smith's views acceptable, but Anjem Choudary's are imprisonable?

And what of Smith's support for the egregious, utterly failed, downright counterproductive Prevent "strategy"?


  1. What does Corbyn have against negotiating with terrorists?

    He wanted us to negotiate directly with, and surrender to, the IRA, and his present Shadow Chancellor praised them as "honourable"?

    1. You mean the Queen's overnight guests? An entire generation is growing up that thinks Corbyn, McDonnell and Ken Livingstone brought peace to Northern Ireland all on their own. Even older people increasingly seem to think that. I wouldn't mention the subject at all, if I were you.

  2. Owen Smith is following the McDonnell/Corbyn script on the IRA, and merely applying it to ISIS.

    Corbyn called Hamas his "friends" and suggested we negotiate with them.

    What's the moral difference between Hamas, the IRA and ISIS?

    1. If he can't see the difference, then he is beneath ignorant. If you can't see the difference, then you are beneath ignorant. There is a reason why the pub bore Right is not even allowed to contest Tory Leadership Elections, still less actually run anything.
