Attlee was a major in British army, fought communists in East End, went into Coalition with Tories, helped found Nato, created U.K. nuclear deterrent, hated Soviets, admired US, pro Israel. What’s incredible is you think he and Mr Corbyn are similar.

Also made a bit of lash-up over Malaya and Korea but nobody's perfect.

Yep. It's a case of "what you are shouts so loudly that I cannot hear what you say".

True. Israel intelligence services even set off bombs in Egypt aimed at British targets. I don’t think they saw the British government of the post war decade as being hugely “pro-Israel”.

Attlee was also intelligent, hard working and never sought personal adulation. He had been a charity worker, councillor, cabinet minister before becoming PM. No idea what qualifications Mr Corbyn thinks he brings to the job.
