New Labour types cannot even acknowledge the pursuit of Tory 2015 voters would have been/was fruitless (triple lock and social care, dementia tax, barely dented those greedy Boomers’ votes). Whatever else Corbyn got the strategy right but guess what the sterling silver spoons of New Labour don’t even have the heart or analysis or brains to even acknowledge that. Continue reading “All Credit Mr Corbyn”
We seem to have something of a third party squeeze with the 3rd party being lots of other parties. The mains are polling at almost 80% up from 65%. Labour despite the loss of Scotland are polling better in England and Wales arguably than any time since 2001 at a general election. They will still be wiped out but hey ho. Then boundary changes kick in as their gerrymandering is unwound but there you go. The Liberals 8% seems to signal the death of Social Democracy and they have not pimped Liberalism (bar Neo Liberalism) in a long time.
So if you are in a marginal who ya got Labour or Tory? Anti Labour or Anti Tory? And yes I started a sentence with so and and, blow me. Continue reading “Labour V Conservative”
I note that establishments are talking about banning fake news so no British newspaper would be allowed? They [central banks] also want to ban cash. People miss that none of this will improve economic performance, quite the opposite with cash ban, but you only need 25% to control most democracies. UK TV is already essentially under Govt control by Offcom – stations are not allowed to say when they are censored either. You will also note as per snoopers charter this as much as one can tell with Labour is supported by both main parties.
Left squabbling over who is racist and pronouns is rather funny in this context. In the sense of funny but not funny a bit like Mr Corbyn and McDonnell really.
The point is that with money now ‘printed’ for our rulers and media under control in UK they don’t need a thriving economy just control. Indeed Putin would seem the ideal for the West’s rulers?
I am not sure those whose pathetic self esteem relies on looking down on Trump or BrExit voters realise quite why so many oppose what to them seems obvious logic backed up by experts. Now of course these people are not economists objecting on grounds of EU’s lack of democracy or economic theory to Mrs Clinton’s bogus nonsense.
But, there’s the rub. Continue reading “Not Wilfully Stupid”
The UK state controls a large proportion of the economy – far more than is obvious due to the State’s patronage or subsidy as I call it whether it be subsidy or tax breaks. However to move to a position of say a more Venezuela style state Socialism where various big projects dominate the economy and international capital runs for the hills is a different matter. Continue reading “State Socialism No Thanks”
Chance spent 40 years surrounded by plants unaware of the world.
Chance was patronised by wealthy sophisticates
These types found Chance’s homilies to contain hidden wisdom.
My point to the left is that if you believe your politics and want to avoid accidents like all other so called Socialist Govts then you won’t support this clown. He’s not leading anyone anywhere good even were he to win an election. He’s incompetent and stupid and a poor leader and worse at heart thinks his politics mean he has more virtue than others. He’s learned nothing. He has no ideas to move society on. He is really just Ed Miliband or Gordon Brown in cheaper clothing. A series of Govt measures some of which will appeal to the middle class.
Oddly now it is not the working class who want patronising leftist payments and transfers. It’s that shrinking middle who see their privilege being taken. Yet there is no demand for Land ownership just a series of pointless nationalisations and transfer payments. Nothing on wealth creation just spending more on infrastructure as an end in itself. It’s an incoherent echo of 70s’ leftism and things that sound virtuous.
Both candidates for the Labour leadership talked about negotiating with IS. Sorry this is not on. Continue reading “Labour’s Clown Show”
