Yes, really, all of it. Why? Not factual. Enough?
Ohh, I remember, you Ocasio Cortez people are not concerned about facts

His appearance on 'This Week' was an absolute car crash.

I was living in London 81-83. The glory days of Red Ken. This programme making a fool of a 70+ year old is symptomatic of the level of politics in Britain at the moment.

There is no doubt that many London communities have a hell of a lot to thank him for. He blew the budget quite happily to make sure community projects got the funding they sorely needed.

On balance, Ken isn't in politics now and the interview was regarding one specific issue, Venezuela.

There's an old biker saying that I've posted here before...

"The good we do, they never remember.
The bad we do, they never forget."

Typically interviews such as this are edited down from a much larger volume of material. Maybe these were just side remarks in an interview about something totally different.

It was a car crash interview about Venezuela, not his chunnerings about Hitler. You can‘t limp that out for every interview he gives.

What a coincidence - Chaves & Maduro also blew the budget!
