A Use For John McDonnell

Of all of today’s crop of politicians with crackpot policies, the one I like least is John McDonnell!

Today, though, he appeared on the BBC, as I was prevaricating about going to get my newspaper and some other shopping.

I left with all the speed of a rat up a drainpipe.

Thinking about it, I do rather look down on people who treat mathematics as fiction.

Will Business Trust Ultra-Marxist Labour?

This is a paragraph from an article in today’s copy of the Times, which is entitled Labour’s Big Call Has BT Hanging By A Wire.

Only two weeks ago Mr Jansen, 52, had dismissed the threat of Labour nationalisation, saying that BT was “not on the list” and taking comfort from comments from John McDonnell over the summer and made personally. Labour’s shadow chancellor had said in an interview in July that there were “no tricks up my sleeve” and that the “limit of our ambition” was taking the power networks, Royal Mail, rail and water companies into state ownership.

It appears John MacDonnell has either changed his mind, or was doing something rather devious.

Will business at any level from the smallest corner shop to the largest FTSE 500 company ever trust what this ultra-Marxist Labour party says?
