Full title - We have been warned! John McDonnell is the Marxist who plotted and purged his way to power, the denigrator of a great British hero, and even MORE dangerous than Corbyn, writes ANDREW ROBERTS
When nation’s historical memory is so befouled by transitory current political subversion that they no longer remember what made them great in the first place, the road to ruin lies ahead.
John McDonnell is both historically and economically illiterate and he enthusiastically embraces some of the Left’s most ridiculous myths about Churchill.
My favorite was the Oxbridge academic in the 1960s who, with absolute certainty, and righteous fury, lambasted Churchill for sending TANKS against the miners in 1910. In 1910. Small details like facts didn’t seem to bother him. A bit like that ghastly Ocasio-Cortez excrescence - as long as they are morally right, in their mind, nothing else matters.
Incidentally, I greatly recommend Andrew Roberts new book, Churchill: Walking With Destiny. He has had access to many new sources, including the diaries of King George VI, which makes for some fascinating gems in every chapter.
