    Momentum Kids will basically be a giant, neon sign saying "Paedophiles Welcome!". It reminds me of the crap that went on in hard-left German circles in the 1970s and 1980s

    I guarantee this sort of crap will be going on in Momentum Kids

    "I begin with the young. We older ones are used up. We are rotten to the marrow. We are cowardly and sentimental. We are bearing the burden of a humiliating past, and have in our blood the dull recollection of serfdom and servility. But my magnificent youngsters! Are there any finer ones in the world? Look at these young men and boys! What material! With them, I can make a new world. This is the heroic stage of youth. Out of it will come the creative man, the man-god."*

    Hmm, upset, nar, just find you to be an extremely unpleasant and boring person. Where on earth do you find so much time to waste on here anyway?

    So do you think people who have not been DBS checked should be allowed to look after children?

    Hmmm yes because the local scout group is a political organisation indoctrinating children with hard left nonsense isn't it? Oh wait, the scouts are actually apolitical you say? There's the difference.

    The scouts teach children o share and cooperate. COMMUNIST FILTH

    Scouts teachers children values. Political values. What do you think happens in schools? Whenever we put children in groups we always teach how there has to be a leader. That is a political value we are installing in our children. Indoctrination is a fact of life. It is about what vales we indoctrinate into people and these values come from many different sources (education, advert, the state, culture etc)

    As far as I can tell this Momentum Kids thing is mainly so single parents can get involved and have their kids looked after. Don't think they are going to be teaching them "to be like Che" or anything. Of course though it is fine for everyone and their dog to invoke Hitler when it is Momentum. Why not dig up the graves of a load of dead Jews for cheap political point scouring.

    Exactly. It's a ****ing creche so that parents can get more politically involved. In fact, it's been set up by two mums who want to go to political meetings (what a horrible thing to want to do!), not Corbyn or even Momentum as an organisation as such. No-one is in outrage that Labour has a creche at its conference. The Greens and (I think) the SNP also do, and the Lib Dems have in the past though appear not to any more. But apparently everything even remotely related to Corbyn must actually be sinister.

    If you look at their FB or Twitter pages, which being relatively new admittedly don't provide huge amounts of information, the small amount of political stuff for kids there (they also - shock horror - have some non-political stuff for kids!) is pretty mundane and innocuous, and just about generic political involvement and activity.

    That's a point iirc I had to pledge allegiance to the queen, that's social engineering right there!

    Not surprised by the hypocrites who support faith schools too being up in arms about this. Socialisms just a phase for most people- that religious stiff will mess you up for life.



    That said, I'm not keen on the idea for sure. I sure as hell wouldn't let my kids go to a momentum run nursery or some faith school.

    No. To quote the BBC, quoting the organisation, it will also include "fun, engaging and child-friendly" political activity for youngsters.

    and

    Organisers of Momentum Kids, which hopes to expand across the group's 150 local branches, said it would "create a space for questioning, curious children where we can listen to them and give them a voice".

    It sounds very like the Hitler Youth, and I can't imagine it will be referred to as anything other than Corbyn Youth.

    As an aside, I wonder why lefties like to use the word "space" so much.

    T
    Such a thing is alien to the British political tradition, we've never had a major political party setting up a sub-organisation designed to indoctrinate children. Even the name sounds sinister;
    We have always had them. They are called schools.

    austerity is necessary , unfortunately it;s the left that have created this necessity and the left who have caused the nature of austerity
    There is a wide consensus among economists that austerity is counter productive, as it directly cuts investment which reduces productivity. The idea of austerity tries to assert that we are doing things we cannot afford, this is simply not the case. The UK is a very wealthy country, we are just sitting on that wealth and failing to invest it.

    I'm unclear how you can sensibly describe not borrowing more money, and trying to pay off part of the debt, as "sitting on that wealth".

    You're just making stuff up, now.

    Yes, for sure, we have had a tradition since the 70s of very left-wing teachers in schools pushing their agendas on children - but there is no policy of political education such as you get in these messed up socialist countries. In general, an individual teacher might say "hey captialism is bad" but you don't study Das Kapital or Wealth of Nations in this country as a texts in of themselves, but rather in context.
