Right to blame for banking collapse

Published 24/09/2015

Anyone concerned about the dangers of the "hard Left" to the economy might reflect on the fact that the greatest economic catastrophe of our time - the banking collapse of 2008 - was the direct result of hard-Right, unregulated, free-market policies.

New Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is a politician who is not in favour of continuing to kill people through resource-grabbing foreign wars and does not want to impoverish millions more through increasing inequality.

That he can be considered a radical is a sign of how inured we have become in a neo-liberal world to accepting social and political injustice as the inevitable price we have to pay for "the economy".
