Jeremy Corbyn has been a supporter of the Chagossians’ plight for a long time, and on this I agree with him. On his website, an article is published, which discusses the depopulation of Diego Garcia and notes that
“This was done in secret and with no consultation with the people who matter most, namely those people who lived there”
Hard to argue with, really. I’m with him so far. But it becomes difficult to square all of this with his attitude to the Falkland Islands.

    Shrewd point, Peter.

    Mr Corbyn has many morally indignant views he hasn’t come close to thinking through.

  • It’s a point made by the author of the piece linked to, not me. But yes, it’s very shrewd.
