Corbyn Said Davos “Conspiracy” is “Cause of World’s Problems”

Sworn Marxist John McDonnell is off to Davos this month. For his preparatory reading, perhaps he will cast his eye over this 2015 Morning Star piece by none other than… Jeremy Corbyn. Headlined “Dealings in faux concern”, Jezza launched a scathing attack on the WEF, suggesting it is a New World Order-like “conspiracy” of “kings, princes, presidents, prime ministers and large corporations”. He castigated charity Oxfam for attending the summit, calling it “strange” for doing so. Guido republishes the highlights below…

THE ill-named World Economic Forum is gathering once again in Davos, where hordes of delegates are invited to attend, dominated by kings, princes, presidents, prime ministers and large corporations. (And John McDonnell.)

One asks oneself first why Davos exists at all, and second, whether it isn’t some grand conspiracy by big business to interact with significant political figures, bypassing the slightly more democratic process of the United Nations.

Davos of course works on the basis that a gathering of the super-rich in a super-expensive and exclusive resort will be free from pesky demonstrators. (Apart from John McDonnell.)

For politicians rubbing shoulders with the chief executives of the world’s major corporations, the only agenda will be that of market economics and capitalism — not the everyday realities for the majority of the world’s population. (Not much point in John going, then.)

The forum’s faux concern for the world’s environment is somewhat tempered by the arrival of 122 executive jets, not to mention the high living that goes on in that place… (Sure John will avoid the bars.)

Oxfam, rather strangely, does attend the Davos summit — and indeed its chief executive Winnie Byanyima has been appointed as one of the six co-chairs of the forum… 

If Davos teaches us anything, it is that the super-rich and their tax havens have actually created greater and greater inequality in the world, and this supranational club of the very rich economic elites is not a solution to the world’s problems.

In reality, it is the main cause of them. (But John McDonnell is delighted to accept his invitation.)

Diane Abbott on Amber Rudd:

Who can have confidence in Amber Rudd to make far-reaching changes to the Home Office if she doesn’t seem able to get basic facts right?”
