LETTER: Political point scoring with Trump comments

editorial image

So the ‘Beast of Bolsover’ is at it again calling Donald Trump a fascist and not fit to walk in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela.

Well, what I can tell Dennis Skinner is that Donald Trump has never been in prison and never been charged with terrorism. I cannot say the same for Nelson Mandela but people like Dennis Skinner can only see one side of the coin. If he thinks South Africa is a better place to live since Nelson Mandela’s party took over, I suggest he takes a tour around the country but I would advise him not to go out after dark. For a man like Dennis Skinner to bring Nelson Mandela’s name up in Westminster and thinks he is scoring points, that’s the mentality of the man in my view.
It is time that he was made to retire.
