The Corbyn Plan

The election plan of the ALP is to follow the policy lead of Jeremy Corbyn.  The same Jeremy Corbyn who said about Hugo Chavez and Venezuela in 2009:

Venezuela is seriously conquering poverty by emphatically rejecting the Neo Liberal policies of the world’s financial institutions.

The same Jeremy Corbyn who said in 2011:

I’ve been involved in opposing anti-terror legislation ever since I first went into Parliament in 1983.

The same Jeremy Corbyn who:

claimed that 9/11 was “manipulated” to make it look like Osama Bin Laden was responsible to allow the West to go to war in Afghanistan.

And still the same Jeremy Corbyn who:

blamed Britain for the beheading of Alan Henning by the ISIS killer “Jihadi John”.

And the very same Jeremy Corbyn whose economic manifesto includes rail nationalisation, free tertiary education and freezing the pension retirement age.

What is worse.  The ALP policy direction or the ineptitude of the Coalition government such that the ALP are on track to win the next election?

    “In the long run, ideas, not force, rule; and any government has to have legitimacy in the minds of the public.”

    as long as you support any of this — no change for better can occur

    A Heavy Progressive or Graduated Income Tax.

    Centralization of Credit in the Hands of the State, by Means of a National Bank with State Capital and an Exclusive Monopoly.

    Free Education for All Children in Public Schools.

    standing armies

    professional police

    foreign policy that support wars

    professional politicians

    Or to put it this way:
    as long the voting population sees no real problem with fiat money, engaging in massive deficit spending, policing the entire world, providing health care, providing social security and micro-managing every business decision

    I really think our only hope is to get some good people into the senate. Still can’t understand how left wingers put up by the LP still romp home in conservative electorates such as Mackellar.

    Please don’t tell me Corbyn has been preselected by the Photios NSW Lieboral Party.

    The UK needs him more.

    foreign policy that support wars

    I think one great lesson of the last 50 years is that foreign military adventures suck. Eisenhower warned us.

    Comrade Corbin reminds of the arrogant fool George Bernard Shaw = who after a party conducted tour of stalins Russia said” I ha e seen the future and it works” this was during the days when stalins Cheka were murdering thousands of people weekly . The intellectual academic left have the never reall understood facts and reality ,they interfere with the dogmatic agenda ,spoil a good theory .

    The problem is that the LNP’s election plan is also to follow the policy lead of Jeremy Corbyn.

  8. David Walker

    This claim is unconvincing however you put it. But to make it as un-ridiculous as it could be, you should have stopped writing after the first sentence. No reader could work their way through that list of comments about Corbyn and imagine them being credibly made about Shorten.

    The overall effect is simply to remind most people how different Shorten is from Corbyn.

  9. PB

    Well, he IS right about 911.

  10. Warty

    In response to David Walker. I suspect the list of Corbyn statements/beliefs were merely representative of the socialist mentality of the man: the impression is this is one truly radical lefty. The comparison with an equally left Shorten is justified when you consider the fact that in order to adhere to a Green ideology he is prepared to bankrupt the country by supporting a 49% renewable target; that he supports a disingenuous anti bullying policy, otherwise known as the Safe Schools Programme; that he opposes coal fired power stations in his energy mix; and that he will reinforce the transformation of our police, fire services and military into equal opportunity, gender fluid forces of futility.
    He doesn’t have to support dead Venezuelan dictators; he need not dream up further conspiracy theories about 9/11; or support the IRA: he simply has to open our borders; condemn Israel whilst fully supporting the Palestinians in their goal of driving the Jews into the Mediterranean and he’ll be a mirror image. Simple.

    milton, not so sure about the ‘suck factor’. Malaysians still remember favourably Australian involvement in defeating the CTs in the 50s and seeing off Sukarno during Konfrontasi. East Timor (us, not Indonesia)? RAMSI?

    Who’s the wee muse with the red choux cruising Hugo’s shmooze?

    Think more of Iraq Somalia Libya. Maybe Vietnam too.
