Andy Burnham, who knows why and what we will find out they ‘ad on ‘im or maybe Occam’s Razor he is just a complete moron, rushed to endorse the Snooper’s Charter and raise the cost of us using the internet to gather data on us! (VPN anyone?). This and the genuine compassion for migrants and refugees may seem incongruous. What principle does it imply? What does it say to those who live and vote here?
John McDonnell also accepted Austerity even though none of his 6 economic advisers would see that as anything but stupidity. Corbyn is set on unilateralism not making the obvious case against Trident but arguing for something that is frankly Cnut like. Again what is the principle here?
The point is that policies aimed at people who do not even live in the UK or absolutist positions suits the Labour left but it will compromise on our freedom and security on the basis of dogma and ease but not that of other nation’s people! Regardless of anything else this is hardly electable.
Essentially the position of the left neo Liberals (everyone from left of Liz Kendall to 1 step right from Corbyn) is conservative. Their whole philosophy padded with some humanitarian nonsense is that we want the world as it is just a bit different. In essence long term a Zombie Capitalism with individuals subservient to corporations, Land Owners and State [funded] entities – Osborne but lighter.
The changes they propose take the cronyism/kleptocracy/plutocracy/Oligarchy/WhateverYouCallIt world as a given and seek no more/little change with extra transfer payments. It’s why most stinging attacks on George Osborne and the Conservative Govt come from the right.
The paradox is those who the state now protects vote for this change and those against want no change. Aided by electoral systems where only 25% of people have to vote for no change for themselves. So here Pensioners, Farmers, Oil Producers, Corporate bureaucrats, State Funded companies, Arms manufacturers et al ensure the continuation of their no change lives at the expense of the wider economy and any sense of justice.
