Nor did I, Toril. Despite once being a staunch Labour supporter, I haven't voted for them since 1974, when Harold Wilson got back to power by promising that he would hold a Referendum and get us out of the European Economic Community, AKA the Common Market, which the Tories had just taken us into.
We had the Referendum, but Wilson went against all his promises, and persuaded a majority of people to vote to stay in. Bloody lying turncoat.
I have never trusted Labour since, and Phony Tony Blair's regime only hardened my opinion, and convinced me that I'm right not to trust them. Comrade Corbyn is certainly no improvement.
Wanna see another Labour politician being 'economical with the truth'? Watch this... (on my PC the volume is muted until you click the loudspeaker button on the video)
Please note, I'm not saying he doesn't have the right to give his opinion. We should all be entitled to give our opinions, whether they are popular or not.
What I don't like is the fact that he gave his honest opinion, which is fair enough, but he then repeatedly and strenuously denied that he had ever done so.
That surely means that either he has a very bad memory, or he didn't tell the truth.
Either way, it doesn't inspire much confidence in the man who is Corbyn’s Shadow Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice...
SHAMIMA BEGUM has lost the first stage of a legal challenge against the decision to revoke her British citizenship. Last year, Ms Begum, who is of British-Bangladeshi heritage, took legal action against the Home Office at the High Court and the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC). The tribunal today ruled that the decision to revoke Ms Begum’s British citizenship did not render her stateless.
Now if our authorities could keep terrorists locked up - or preferably send them to wherever their allegiance lies - so they can't hack at innocent people with machetes or knives, I'm sure we'd all feel a lot safer.
"Offenders are subject to strict licence conditions and can be recalled to prison at any point if they breach them or their risk appears to have increased, the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) said.
Conditions include GPS tags, internet bans, curfews, living in a bail hostel or restrictions on who they meet.
Terrorists on licence are banned from contacting accomplices or others with terror convictions and are "closely managed" by probation, police and other authorities who share information on the risk they pose."
I'm sure all terrorists are likely to stick to those conditions because they are all law abiding citizens, aren't they - oh, wait.........
