Well done John McDonnell - taken the focus off how Labour is selling workers down the river on Brexit by slagging off a man for actions that took place more than 100 years ago..

I hope Boris Johnson remembers to thank John McDonnell for giving him the chance to talk about Churchill this morning, instead of having to face awkward qs about how much of that Garden Bridge money went directly into his back pocket. Labour continues to be its own worst enemy..

@williamjohnbird Except that isn’t what Labour are doing. John McDonnell concluded he was a “villain” overall. That’s literally the topic..

Cheltenham MP hits out at those ‘who want to trash Sir Winston Churchill’s memory’ Alex Chalk’s comment follows John McDonnell describing Britain’s war-time leader as a ‘villain’.

Twitter is such an angry, confrontational place at the moment. People leaping to attack John McDonnell for example, for his view of Churchill, taken completely out of context. Boris Johnson making political capital out of it. *sigh*.

Ironically, John McDonnell has pretty much offended both the pro and anti-Churchill camps with his comments. To say he is a villain for a riot that resulted in the death of 1 person, and ignore the Indian famine in which millions died, is pretty fucking racist..

@BorisJohnson These are John McDonnell and corbyns friends terrorists supporting scumbags.

I was at a conference only on Tuesday where Clive Lewis was holding up Churchill as the hero that the left needs to imitate and become. Just when you think you’re figuring out where Labour stands on.

Good to see the truth about Churchill starting to emerge. The man put troops on the streets to quell strikes. A brutal man with brutal policies. Winston Churchill was a villain, says John McDonnell.

@BarbaraNice I agree but think it was naive of John McDonnell to play the game. Surely he could picture the.

@BBCPolitics He should be kicked out. John McDonnell is another no good for nothing. Kick him out..

@EU_Remain_2017 @googlenews Here’s a list of people John McDonnell won’t be calling a villain. Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Marx,Pol Pot, Chavez. Between them they’re responsible for the deaths of 200 million people. But Churchill is the real villain..

@BBCPolitics John ‘I would assassinate Thatcher’ McDonnell? Bloke’s worse than Corbyn. Bollocks to him.

Some reading for John McDonnell, The Spectator leader from 22nd January 1965: ‘We live as free men, speak as free men, walk as free men because a man called Winston Churchill lived’.

If even a Tory Lord can call Winston Churchill a racist and a lifelong white supremacist - which he was - and a national treasure like John Barnes can describe him as a white supremacist and a mass murderer, John McDonnell describing him as a villain should not be controversial..
