Seumas Milne: “It Wasn’t Only Negative What Happened in the Riots”

As ‘anarchist’ rioters (who want a bigger state) rampaged through London last week, setting a police car ablaze and blinding a horse with a firework, it’s worth asking what Team Corbyn think. Here is Seumas Milne speaking after the London riots. Guess what? He’s a fan. 

“Riots do express fundamental social anger and that’s something that’s happened throughout history… Actually, I thought they were quite, you know, despite the way they were portrayed at the time, there was a lot of very political expressions, certainly in particular, in some areas in particular, certainly in East London but in other places as well, where people were expressing, in quite a strong class-orientated way, a hatred not only of the police but of the system… So, I mean, it wasn’t only negative, what happened in the riots. And I think that those people clearly are part of what, of the people that need to be organised and need to find a political expression and social organisation… But it’s also an opportunity. It’s a huge opportunity to channel that anger.”

There you have it: Labour’s new core vote strategy…
