Jeremy Corbyn: Abandon Neoliberalism or suffer gains by Far Right
Introduced as "Britain's next prime minister" Jeremy Corbyn addressed leaders of center left parties at The Europe Together conference in Brussels, spending much of his speech highlighting the need for the left to radicalize and abandon the establishment:

“We all know their politics of hate, blame and division and not the answer, but unless we offer a clear and radical alternative of credible solutions for the problem we face, unless we offer a chance to change the broken system, and hope for a more prosperous future, we are clearing the path for the extreme right to make even more far-reaching inroads into our communities. Their message of fear and division would become the political mainstream of our discourse.

“But we can offer a radical alternative; we have the ideas to make progressive politics the dominant force of this century. But if we don’t get our message right, don’t stand up for our core beliefs, and if we don’t stand for change we will founder and stagnate.”

He continued: “The neoliberal economic model is broken. It doesn’t work for most people. Inequality and low taxes for the richest are hurting our people and harming the economy as even the IMF now acknowledges.

“It is, my friends, possible to win those arguments if you engage with them and put them out there. We will continue to do that. If our message is bold, and our message is radical, if we listen to what the majority actually want, we will prove the elites and their pundits wrong.”


he's gonna be fucking shot

British Cheka when?



Nah, he just likes the idea of kids getting fucked, he says it can help them "discover themselves". Pedotrash piece of shit

Maybe there is a god.

Please don't tempt my inner tankie comrade

Corbyn is a committed pacifist, he's basically Jesus but with Lenin's economics. He's too good for this world and he'll die on the reactionary cross for us, only Corbyn's martyrdom will save the working class.

unironically the best post I have seen today

Ah but you see, behind Corbyn lies John "Million Man March in Manc" McDonnell. Corbyn made the best move in the book: make your number two far more radical than you.

He may be a socdem, but god dammit I can help but like him.

how can anybody NOT love him?


At 8:39 the host starts to ask Milo about the 12000 refugees that are Christian

The host isn't trying to own Milo or anything, the host seems like a guy who is pro the Aussie conservative immigration and maybe a right wing liberal. Milo just fails extremely hard, its pretty funny

btw Milo talks a lot of bullshit, he claims that France and Belgium have contributed the most ISIS fighters even though like 10 other countries have contributed more, he says that Swedens economy is collapsing because of immigrants, which I as a Swedish speaker know to be completely false.

He seems to be riffing on and saying whatever he wants about Europe because he assumes he is talking to an Aussie audience

He is just keeps on failing


Kinda reminds me of Trump and Pence. But yeah, it's a good idea in general to make sure your #2 is more radical.

Neil Mitchell is being a disingenuous little shit here though.

I don't know much about him, how's he more radical than Corb?



He said that most, not all of them, are Christians afterwards. As a side note Christians were about 10% of the population in pre war Syria and also a higher share proportionally of the refugees.

By doing this Neil exposes that Milo thinks muslims are inherently rapists and welfare thiefs, while Christians aren't. Which seems to imply that Milo thinks there is something genetically devious about the muslims.

Milo gets tricked into saying what he actually thinks which is the reason he gets so mad.

Who gives a shit if Neil is "disingenuous". Milo called 12000 refugees rapists and welfare thiefs because he thought they were muslims

Caught on camera saying to a closed room that he's a Marxist and has been waiting for a crash like 2008 all his life, and now's our chance to take control. Also after constantly being called a communist gave the Tories Mao's Little Red Book in Parliament.

Milo makes it pretty clear he thinks this of Muslims, although admits he may be wrong about Australian Muslims as he hasn't spent enough time there, in the minutes leading up to the AHA! question.

A lot of interesting stuff today.

He also has this aura of cold pragmatism around him that makes you think he could be a proper British Stalin.

Meanwhile Corbyn, who is a very nice man, seems to have more in common with Pete Seeger than with Lenin

I for one welcome the dictatorship of the folk singer

Why does he get so mad when he has to revise it and say that Syrians Christians aren't rapists and a drain on public resources specifically because they aren't muslim. He gets mad because when he has to phrase it like this everyone can here how absurd it is.

It's simply glorious. Not sure why you are defending this guy lol, u a Holla Forums right?

yeah they are pretty great


Goddamn I love this man. If he's a socdem, he's /our/ socdem.

Crazy that everyone treats the most unelectable politician as the PM:

Corbyn’s meetings with EU leaders shows Labour as the Brexit grownup


Hell yeah dude

No, I just don't fall for the dumb propaganda of the varying competing factions of the right.


feel sad for you

Pic related, is an open marxist who has done economic (and presumably election) planning using situationist internationale theories. He is pretty bad at hiding his powerlevel tbh:
“In the first week of a Labour government, democratic control of the major economic decisions would be restored by ending the Bank of England’s control over interest rates and bringing the nationalised and subsidised banks under direct control to force them to lend and invest their resources to modernise our economy and put people back to work.”

muh dick

Yeah being a teenager is great, the world is so new and fresh.

it's literally a video with Milo loosing his spaghetti

It's an audio clip of a liberal popping his obviously prepared gotcha question after Milo makes it blatantly clear he's hostile to Muslims. He even changes his stance when he's told they're Christians and points out this is exactly what has happened.

I guess u just dont get it

Australian chat radio is too deep for me I'm afraid.

To be fair you have to have a very high Autism Level to understand Australian chat radio

Capitalism is great eh
Jesus H Christ how can they maintain this delusion

Fascism? Rounding up all the brown people? Nuking the middle east?

that's only the majority of Holla Forums fam

Funniest thing about the czech president is that he's an hapa

The majority of people aren't sadists. There are genuine, left-wing concerns about immigration completely unrelated to race or identity and they should be addressed without pandering to far-right fantasies.

If Corbyn proposed mild immigration reforms he'd take No. 10
If he implemented those reforms Labour would govern for a generation

Literally the only thing stopping him is a bunch of idpolers more concerned with opposing everything the Tories are for regardless of how much sense that makes

I wonder if you could just literally defeat this with a comb and some tissue paper

Another day another dril tweet


the czech president is a right wing trump supporter

milo really is a walking dril tweet
