Reader’s comment: The Left’s compassion play


In response to Ollie Wright: You can’t judge the person by the parents, Mr Corbyn, Peter Evans wrote:

The Corbynistas are privileged, unoppressed middle-class virtue signallers who rant about oppression despite not really giving a sh*t about the unfortunate and downtrodden. They’d rather keep them at arm’s length. Their ‘compassion’ is no such thing. It’s sentimentality, which is self-adulation, love of one’s own public declarations of compassion.

Jacob Rees-Mogg recently asked a BBC audience (which of course had been carefully vetted to ensure Left-wing bias) ‘How many of you believe we should open our borders to all Syrian refugees?’ Virtually all the hands in the audience went up. Then he asked, ‘How many of you have taken a Syrian refugee into your home?’ Not a single hand went up.

Generosity and compassion is to be theatrically proclaimed by the Left, but left to other people to actually carry out.
