I CANNOT believe the naivety and ignorance of recent history for so many socialists to react with adulation to Jeremy Corbyn’s speech at the Labour party conference.

It would appear that during all the years Corbyn spent arguing with his fellow Labour MPs, it never occurred to him that all the billions of pounds he is going to have the state spend has first to be earned by the private sector. Unbelievable!
