UK Labour (socialist) Party leader Jeremy Corbyn is using his attack on the Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron as a smoke screen for an attack on the wealth of all families in the UK, including Labour's own voters in furtherance of his hard left ideas that are closer to communism than the (relatively) benign socialism of even the radical Blair/Brown government.
