Thread Name: BS: Chartism
Subject: RE: BS: Chartism
My mrs is from the valleys,
so she had vague memories of this history in places she knows very well...
What is amusingly and convincingly indicated
is that the tories remain as nasty and devious a party
when it comes to ruthlessly maligning & shutting down the voices of their opposition,
as they did in the 1830s...
But at least they can no longer hang draw and quarter Corbyn,
or transport him...???
Quite an effective one off message carried to a mass BBC audience,
in this very popular BBC1 show...
