My question to all the economists and Govts last 30 years if you claim liberalism, globalisation, EU have benefited us why can’t we afford health, education, pensions, benefits, weekly garbage collection, social care etc. now? Continue reading “Don’t Vote Fascist: Vote Poverty”
Tempting as it is to say May only struggles on the spot and after such garrulous guff spielers as Blair and Cameron we should accept that. Yet give her time and space and she’s still vacuous avoider of issues without ideas. This is arguably going to be Dacre’s 2nd term after the original one with Brown, although it’s unclear if Brown was run by Brooks/Murdoch too. This is after all someone who has used legal defeat after defeat to advance herself at the public expense even at the extent of lying about immigrant rights at a party conference.
People who follow history will know those who advance through position, the general secretary route, rather than ideas and brilliance in a power vacuum are the most dangerous. Especially armed with a massive pensioner army ignorant of where, how and what their pensions and asset prices come from who do not have to work for lousy bosses or compelled to take self employed status or zero hours contracts.
You have to worry when the Govt cravenly caves to Nissan. That whole neo Liberal model where you subsidise trade and make trade deals claiming you don’t and subsidised trade with guarantees for big Pharma and rentier rights are good and exempt from national Govts’ making laws! As said all I see is the Kleptocrats offshoring their wealth once extracted away from tax. The Finance industry we can agree produces not wealth and merely services money so its size is just leeching off the backs of workers and Capitalists?
As before this ridiculous world where all production is subsidised and workers taxes have to pay for what money creation cannot is unsustainable. Especially as the debt created remains – banks may go bust but loans never cancelled one rule for the plebs but sadly bankrupt plebs don’t buy anything except with more debt.
If I was just acting for myself hard BrExit with no subsidy and tariffs on imports would be the way to go. Not many want to gamble like that so having a Govt led by a populist who will shit on anything to please her party and window lickers concede without a raise to a company like Nissan is worrying.
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.
