Onward Labour Soldiers
They just don’t get it. Blair, Brown, Mandelson, Blunkett, Kinnock,Campbell et al. The Labour college of cardinals(mostly retired), the boyos born to rule. Every time they speak against the pretender Corbyn, 10000 more Labour supporters come out of their burrows determined to vote for him. Because what is going on is a revolt against New (ie non) Labour,the spin, the focus group, the centrism, the managerial metropolitan view of politics. This is Labour’s counter reformation, the faithful,so long despised, want their mass in Latin, servile masses arise, arise.
Those who oppose Corbyn are the neighing suited donkeys which took the country(with Tory support) into the Iraq war on a lie and seriously destabilised the world. Just think of that war’s effect on Syria and Afghanistan and the “swarm” of refugees. It used to be said that Labour without a moral crusade was nothing. They tried doing anything it takes to win elections and many of the activists were unhappy.It seems that a lot of Labour supporters believe a moral crusade is the point. These are not Christian but Labour soldiers marching as to war.
I repeat my one original political anecdote. In the 1970s I was canvassing in North Kensington for the Labour Party. Solid, Except one who said he was voting for the Tories. Why? Labour are just in it for themselves. Look at Harold Wilson he has just sold his biography for £250k. But surely the Tories do the same thing. Yes ,but I expect it of them,
Well if Labour were careerist and personal opportunists in the 70s just think of the careers the Kinnocks have had in Europe and the rise and rise of Tony Blair since leaving government. Its got worse. So when up pops Corbyn whose life blood is Clause 4, an out and out rebel who didn’t go to Oxford, and revolts against most of the sensible conventional wisdom that dominates the UK’s political middle ground,the rebel flag is raised and those born to revolt salute.
But some very good may come of Corbyn. Only if the SNP are dislodged can we really see a long term future for the UK. And only if the SNP are outflanked on the left is that possible. Corbyn may be the man to do that. Save the UK and destroy the Labour Party,what a double whammy. We Tories will have a lot to thank him for.
Whatever your political colour as you listen to the Internationale stand and give the clenched fist salute. This is your land. Easy mortgage terms available.
