Labour shadow chancellor John McDonnell quotes from Chairman Mao’s “Little Red Book” to the Conservatives on assets. Recorded from BBC2 HD, Spending Review 2015, 25 November 2015.

Mao maybe a monster, but not everything he said is automatically wrong – and suggesting that the Conservative government should be aware of Mao in their interaction with China seems a wise warning.

John McDonnell may also be a monster, and he is being monstered over quoting Mao in the UK houses of parliament – but I think this is just to avoid addressing the genuine point he was making.
