Williamson Praises “F**king Fantastic” Venezuela

Top Corbynista Chris Williamson is in today’s Morning Star heaping praise on the murderous regime of Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro. In a sit-down interview with the communist rag, Williamson lauded the failed socialist state as a model for Britain:

“Look at the investment in healthcare and housing… the country had eliminated illiteracy in Venezuela by 2005, I mean, fucking heck, what a fantastic achievement. I saw it as an exemplar for this country…

“When the BBC asked me to do that Newsnight interview, I f*d and blinded at this producer guy who rang. I said: ‘Why have you asked me?’. Well, I was a bit more blunt than that. ‘What the fuck are you asking me to come on for? I’m not a bloody expert on Venezuela, I’m just inspired by some of the stuff they’ve done.’… I went on in the end.”

Williamson dismissed the ongoing political and economic crisis, which has seen widespread violence against protesters and the midnight arrest of opposition leaders. He said: “Clearly, in the recent crisis that’s been going on, a number of police and security personnel have overstepped the mark.” Watch them “overstepping the mark” here

Quote of the Day

Councillor John Thomas, Keith Vaz’s Leicester East Constituency Labour Party Chairman says…

“This is great disappointment to me, realising that I have spent over 30 years of my life working for a party that I now know that I have nothing in common with. This is not the party I joined, the party for decent working people. I can no longer follow the clown that leads the Labour Party, he is heavily influenced by the Trotskyite Len McCluskey and is now as the Hoki Coki leader, in out, and shake it all about he has turned this great party into a laughing stock.”
