robomatic BS: UK General election December 12 2019 (927* d) RE: BS: UK General election December 12 2019 17 Dec 19


Steve:

You did not respond to my identifying the origin of the quote of Mr. Corbyn being "an unreconstructed Marxist". My following response was that true or not, this was a matter of perception. The fact that the vote was split may be everything you say; but, unfortunately, perceived splits are a fact of life in and out of Democracy. Without Ralph Nader and the Green Party Gore would have likely won the U.S. 2000 election. Without Bernie Sanders, Hilary might have won in 2016. Or, without Hilary, Bernie might have won in 2016. Without Harald Hardrada, Harold Godwinson might have held his own at the Battle of Hastings.

Politics is sometimes fair, usually not. Democratic politics is a subset of politics, hence subject to these cruel rules.
