villain. he sure knows how to grab the headlines. fora bit villain. he sure knows how to grab the headlines. for a bit of context and he was at an event held by politico tonight. at the end of a fairly long exchange on brexit and other matters of domestic policy was givena quick other matters of domestic policy was given a quick by around. politicians hate them for that to prefer this tv programme or that tv programme? is churchill hero or villain? straight off the mark, presumably instinctive, john mcdonnell said he was a villain. tony pandy. he sent troops to quell riots. that has become part of the history of the labour movement in the south wales valleys and he has never been thought particularly highly there. while i admire john mcdonnell for most of the time speaking his mind roughing it is really refreshing that he does not shy away from sharing his opinions, you would
