Venezuela about to go down the tubes...a lesson for Corbyn and the Labour Party perhaps?

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by Rodney2q, Jul 28, 2017.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Watching Sky news this morning it appears that the situation in Venezuela is rapidly getting out of hand due to the mismanagement of the economy by the dictatorial socialist government which appears to be more than happy to use the Venezuelan military to keep the masses down...

    'Basket case': Why is Venezuela falling apart?

    According to Sky the security forces still are supporting the government but for how much longer remanins open to question given the spiralling inflation, food shortages and popular resistance to the government.

    It also appears that it is the poor and middle classes that are suffering the most under the Socialist government.

    I'm wondering if Saint Jeremy of Corbyn is watching the situation. He seems to be an ardent supporter/imitator of Venezuelen Socialism...

    Jeremy Corbyn’s manifesto ‘could bring Venezuela’s chaos’

    Any chance that Corbyn and his followers might learn something from all this and the implications for the UK if Corbyn ever gets into power?

    .....I doubt it - there are none so blind as those who will not see.

  9. For Gods sake, get with the programme. As any fule know, it's all the fault of imperialist pigdog yankee capitalists for not providing free money or buying the Venezuelan oil at the price they want to sell at, rather than the market rate. It's all down to Trump and the Tories obvs - as is global warming, Grenfell, nurses not being paid a gazillion pounds a day, student loans, Charlie Gard, terrorism, cancer etc

    If only the Messiah had not been cheated of the power he rightfully deserves by that democratic election thingy, all would be wonderful.....

  10. Sitting on more oil (allegedly) than Saudi, most of the rich Venezuelans are in Florida watching it from afar and yet again the poor get the shitty end of the stick from champagne socialism.
    Such a beautiful country, stunning scenery and the women weren't bad either.
    You could even get to like Polar beer but there was always an underclass there, however many beers you drank.
    It's just that the whole country is now the underclass, stand by for the inevitable South American coup to take place and some substantial humanitarian aid with lots of conditions attached.
