Slaughter backed Castro

castrointerroga-300x190I have written elsewhere about terrible crimes of Fidel Castro’s dictatorship.

Certainly it was appalling that the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn declared that “for all his flaws” Castro was “a champion of social justice.”

The Cuban farmer being interrogated by Castro in this picture prior to execution was one of tens of thousands of victims.

Yet Corbyn was not the only Labour MP to take this disgracefully equivocal stance.

Andrew Slaughter, the Labour MP for Hammersmith, was among those signing a Commons motion “commending the achievements of Fidel Castro”.
