Right to blame for banking collapse

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".
