UK Labour Shadow Chancellor names Lenin, Marx and Trotsky as his biggest influences

The Telegraph reports:

John McDonnell has named Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky as his “most significant” political influences.

The shadow chancellor’s comments prompted criticism after he said he draws inspiration from those responsible for the mass murder of their political opponents.

Both Lenin and Trotsky are viewed as the architects of dictatorial communism.

He forgot to mention Stalin or Mao.
