how the fuck is corbyn a tankie?
Corbyn was a tankie in the most literal sense - supported the Soviet Union.
On further inspection he was just part of groups which were pro-soviet, while never personally supporting them.
He wrote articles for a Soviet funded newspaper, and part of Labour for Peace which was largely Pro-Soviet.
I think he is now showing a more nuanced understanding of the Soviet Union, but he was definitely in support of Trotsky previously.
