I'm not anti-religious at all. Not at all. Just remember the Balkan Socialists / Communists = butcers, murderers, bloodsuckers, revilers ... all-haters of everything holy and every order, from the ranks of politicians, soldiers, fighters..., media scribblers first of all! And I probably go to more religious services than most people who are very strong believers. I go to churches, I go to mosques, I go to temples, I go to synagogues. I find religion very interesting. I find the power of faith very interesting. I have friends who are very strongly atheist and wouldn't have anything to do with any faith; but I take a much more relaxed view of it. I think the faith community offers and does a great deal for people. There doesn't have to be wars about religion, there has to be honesty about religion. We have much more in common than separates us.
The above is what identifies him to me, not the official political denomination citated on A know-all WIKI:
Jeremy Bernard Corbyn (/ˈkɔːrbɪn/; born 26 May 1949) is a British politician who is the Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition. He has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for Islington North since 1983 and was elected Labour Leader in 2015. Ideologically, he identifies as a democratic socialist.
A democratic socialist means to me nothing, or implicates numerous questions about the cruelest things in human history:
1. (as to the first part of the syntagm) what, for example, British democracy has done to many a nations&countries far abroad, on whose human&natural wealth the funy kingdom is basically based.
2. (as to the second part of the syntagm) what, for example, ex-Yougoslav or even more SSR (Soviet Socialist Republic) socialism have done to many a one from among Muslim nations and countries, destined to be a part and parcel of the bronze idols (be it Stalin or Tito, all the same).
But Jeremy seems to me to be preserving a real human stand.
