Politicians & Media must focus on peace

Churchill and StalinOur historic connection with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics as demonstrated in this image shows that historic photographs showing various evil people with Jeremy Corbyn and lists of his widely known meetings with such people in the past should be treated very carefully. Churchill’s historic connections were far from clean and the stupid comments on social media by those opposed to Jeremy Corbyn from the news media, and Tories and some within the Labour Party need to re-focus on the real challenge facing our nation today. Stalin was widely known to have killed millions of people and evicted many more from his series of nations, few people in the modern Conservative Party and those who are accusing Corbyn, would agree to our association with Stalins successor, yet they would not question Churchill’s judgement if faced with those challenges. According to some reports from Theresa May’s speech in London yesterday, she argued that any deaths on British soil act as a line in the sand. Surely our Government and indeed all credible Governments across the world should be seeking to end deaths in all nations, irrespective of the nationality of those involved. Our own nations involvement in deaths in Yemen and Syria as two specific examples mean we need a different approach to the way our Government currently acts. Our willingness to stand up against the American approach to weapons is just as relevant, as we hear story after story of children being murdered in Schools and Colleges. We need to see parties working together and acting in a way that brings peace to our world and that will require tough decisions such as the ones taken by Churchill in the 1940’s and world leaders (and leaders of the opposition) now!
