WHAT CORBYN MAY NOT TELL YOU ABOUT HIS HERO KIER HARDIE

Corbyn finished his Labour Party conference speech today with a quote from Kier Hardie. I am mot a supporter of the Labour Party, but Hardie supported home rule for Scotland, Corbyn and John McDonnell are attacking Scottish independence and Scottish nationalists on the basis of lies (for more info see below on my wall). Home rule for Scotland was a PRIMARY DEMAND of Hardie's as can be seen in the following images.

Furthermore, Hardie supported the first world war and recruited many working class :

"A nation at war must be united, especially when its existence is at stake. In such filibustering expeditions as our own Boer war […] where no national interest of any kind was involved, there were many occasions for diversity of opinion […] With the boom of the enemy guns within earshot, the lads who have gone forth to fight their country’s battles must not be disheartened by any discordant notes at home" (source)
