Since about 1982 m8. This thread doesn’t need a summary of 3 decades of Corbyn’s anti-West activities, so just read up on how it evolved from the Soviet Union to Russia, Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba etc and make your own mind up. It’s all a matter of public record. Its up to you decide what his stance is, hates war? Admiration of dictatorships? hates America? defending the innocent from Western aggression? Its up to you.
A picture (or 2) speaks a thousand words.
Director of Communications and Strategy for Labour, and Corbyn’s principal advisor and oldest friend Seumas Milne. Read up on his work, especially around Russia and Crimea. Do read up on his other main advisor Andrew Murray (Murrays wife currently is the Chairman of Communist Party of Great Britain-ML* whose Syria flyer i linked above) and the others driving Corbyns foreign policy too. People like Declan Hayes, his Syrian advisor who runs propaganda ops for Assads Ministries (when he’s not being deported from Thailand for doing what ever middle ages single white men do when they get deported from Thailand).
and a hint to why Corbyn might be sympathetic to Assad and Putin.
*note on obscure leftie culture for Americans. Communists are bad, but Communist Parties with ML (Marxist-Leninist) tagged on their names are the worst. Lots of Stalinists. I’ll engage with Trotskyists (indeed I do, the AWL guys are ok on certain matters but Stalinists are fucking horrible.
