Jeremy Corbyn MP @jeremycorbyn
Thanks Hugo Chavez for showing that the poor matter and wealth can be shared. He made massive contributions to Venezuela & a very wide world

How authoritarian socialism caused Venezuela's collapse
http://theweek.com/articles/624768/how-authoritarian-socialism-caused-venezuelas-collapse

Venezuela's economy is in freefall. It's probably the worst in the world — literally. The country tops Bloomberg's "Economic Misery Index," which looks at measures including inflation and unemployment to find the economy where things are worst for regular people.

Venezuela's GDP is expected to plunge by a jaw-dropping 8 percent this year, and inflation is an even more gut-churning 720 percent, according to the International Monetary Fund. The Venezuelan government is imposing rolling blackouts on its citizens.

Food shortages are rife, leading to lines and even looting. As The New York Times reports, in Venezuela's hospitals children are dying for lack of medicine. The country is on the brink of collapse. And let's keep in mind, Venezuela is one of the world's most oil-rich countries.

What's going on?

Venezuela's president blames foreign companies, the United States, and other dark foreign forces. But the actual reason is a mix of socialism and authoritarianism, which has systematically destroyed Venezuela's productive capacities.

Don't bother, none of Hugo's fellow travelers here want to talk about it now that it's an utter failure.

Gee, if only they had implemented it right...

You do know the Labour party, right?

The only reason no-one's knifed him in the back yet is that doing so will just get them being leader of the opposition.

From Mr. Retard'sCorbyn's Wikipedia page
Corbyn has received awards for his work as an international human rights campaigner.


Lol, what a joke.
