    Beware! Mr Corbyn and his pals are likely to very understanding of the Argentine position and would be happy to hand the islands back to their ' rightful owners”.

    Alicia Castro said regarding Corbyn: “In the end, he is one of 'ours'. Even today, when he comes to our embassy, he arrives with the same bicycle and the same enthusiasm. He is a friendly person with a sense humour, who knows how to listen.” Alicia Castro, former Argentinian ambassador quoted in Daily Telegraph 14 Sept 2015.

    Spot on ! He has listened to Chavez, Putin, Hezbollah, The IRA, ETA, Taliban, etc. You name them Jeremy has listened to them. One of his regrets, I'm sure, is that he never had the chance to listen to Osama Bin Laden. Great talker, great listener, not so good at actually doing anything though.
