I’m sure you can dig up a quote of him defending Marxism - but I do think calling him a “Marxist” just repeating a Tory slur. If he’s a Marxist then what was Atlee or Wilson ? Are his policies so different. I’m not an expert.
It’s interesting to see he says he’s listening, but he still gets a dig in about “diversity”
[quote]There is no quick fix to overcome the distrust of many voters. Patronising them will not win them over. Labour has to earn their trust. That means the patient work of listening and standing with communities, especially as the government steps up its assault. And it means ensuring that the working class, in all its diversity, is the driving force within our party.
The media attacks on the Labour party for the last four and a half years were more ferocious than ever – and of course that has an impact on the outcome of elections. Anyone who stands up for real change will be met by the full force of media opposition.[\quote]
Corbyn isn’t soft on terrorism. He’s hard on State torture in Northern Ireland and Israel.
