I don't think they meant shopping. Rather, if you speak at a *public* event *as a Tory politician*, you may expect to be challenged (verbally).

This is what I'd expect from a vigorous opposition. You've grown too accustomed to the pre-Corbyn, lethargic and apathetic Labour. Sorry, to se ne vrati.

“No Tory MP, no Tory or MP”

And

“...show their face...”

It’s pretty unambiguous. And if he says these things in public you can bet he’s saying far worse in private!

Everything's unambiguous when you remove the context.

And even if the Labour is now behaving a bit aggressively, they're hardly the only ones. Remember "Red Ed"? Or how Corbyn was portrayed as the reincarnation of Lavrentij Beria?

@Paul
Do you really feel threatened by this? You are in some sense a public figure and you seem to be quite happy to advertise your Tory credentials (and quite rightly so, no reason whatsoever why you should not let the whole know where you stand on these issues, if you so desire).

Dont even try to compete with me here.
I have passed 10-15 exams on marxism in Universities and Post-Grad course.
I have spent 1 year in MFTI (rocket colledge in USSR), where the lecturer on seminars on history of Com.Party was the author of several core books on Com.Party's history. His name was Lukashov A.V.  (Лукашов А.В.)
Attention (!):
**** He worked with Lenin, and met with Lenin in person numerous times ***.
https://yroslav1985.livejournal.com/75960.html.
His books
"Очерки истории Московской организации КПСС. М. Московский рабочий. Кн. I. 1883 -ноябрь 1917. 1979. 560 с.; кн. II. Ноябрь 1917 - 1945. 1983. 751 с.".

Ok, in short: the marxism is A MODEL of jewish society in galut:
Several guys (the Politburo) are running ALL other's people money.
This is marxism.
Beleive me: you dont need all this philosophy BS about communizm, because those are just hypocrisy to cover the absense of contract law in society. The only thing (in economy) You have to know is once CLEARLY expressed by Margaret Thatcher:
Margaret Thatcher once said that "The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money."
That is what you get in the nearest future in UK, EU and USA.

I know Lenin is still alive, but the world has changed since your post-grad course (which must have been over half a century ago).

@AlexEro
What's your point? Do you think the USA will run out of USD, the UK will run out GBP, Europe will run out of EUR?

The first two seem implausible. The third is a little more subtle, since most EUR obligations and spending commitments rest with governments that cannot, by themselves, mint Euros. So, to take a random example, Italy could run out of EUR. I think.

SHANGHAI: Growing trade tensions between the United States and China are motivated by fears that China is now the top challenger to Washington's global hegemony, the official Communist Party newspaper The People's Daily said on Friday.

China said this week that it would slap additional 25 percent tariffs on US$16 billion worth of U.S. imports in retaliation against levies on Chinese goods imposed by the United States.

it was a campaign photo-shoot with construction workers, to show that she's a working stiff like them
She's running for congress, having defeated the democratic incumbent (Joe Crowley) in the primary

her platform costs $40 Trillion
there's a $38 Trillion gap in funding (her tax plan raises $2T, the platform costs $40T)

Yes, based on estimates by the entirely neutral Mercatus Center, at George F. Mason U. Your belief that what is routinely achieved at a very moderate cost in all Northern European countries, i.e. universal health care, is impossible in the US is interesting. The American exceptionalism has many faces, and I guess one of them is that those undeserving people should just quietly go off and die.
