Interesting policy

McDonnell was Corbyn’s leadership campaign manager and has advocated nationalisation without compensation in the past

Illegal ‘n’ all that, but interesting, no?

And rather showing why we do need ISDS in the TIPP, no?

  1. It’s already showing signs of being fucking hilarious.

    Arnald, Ritchie, DBCFuckhead, SJW – you should have been more careful what you wished for (unless what you wished for was a car-crash of red and yellow jalopies driven by sundry big shoe-wearing employees of Fred Karno).

  2. Even Ken dissociated himself from McDonnell. I give the party 6 months before it either splits apart or Jezza is ousted. Oddly, that is probably bad news for Dave and George, as there is then less to bind together the Conservatives.

    I’m not sold. The ability for a government to do itself no favours by confiscating property in that way is a useful feedback mechanism to markets and the public alike.

    An external tribunal that protects government contracts will just become a bogeyman to excuse other forms of equally damaging government action.

    “I give the party 6 months before it either splits apart or Jezza is ousted.”

    The one thing the left are very good at is seizing complete control when they get even a sniff of power and then changing all the rules to consolidate that power. Guido is reporting that there is already a purge (lefties are very good at purges as well) at Labour HQ as Corbyn and his mates take control.

    Labour is going to go through another very long, dark, period before it has any chance of moving back towards the center.

  5. Has he appointed McDonnell to make himself look middle of the road in comparison? Does the Left seriously think the British are going to elect this man as Chancellor?

    I saw that. Isn’t it a breach of employee protection legislation to fire people just because the new boss disagrees with them? That would be a lovely court case.

    ISDS can’t be used by domestic companies against their governments.
