So the great Labour leadership election is under way – and everyone is bricking themselves that Corbyn will win it except the Tories and the unions.
The Tories want Corbyn to win because it will stuff the Labour Party’s election prospects for the next ten years. The unions want him to win because it will give them leverage and power to take on the government.
Much has been said about Tory infiltration into the vote – it’s been well overhyped – but very little has been said about the real reason for the major growth of the party in recent months. It’s grown by around 400,000. Massive support for the party? Well, no because it’s mainly due to the unions shoehorning in ‘affiliate’ members at £3 a pop to vote for their preferred candidate.
But what will really happen in Corbyn World if the guy gets elected? Well, there won’t be a Labour government or even a Labour opposition because they simply don’t have the seats in Westminster. What we’ll get is a return to the Scargill / Thatcher years with the left taking to the streets to cripple the country and bring down the Conservative government.
We’re going to see massive industrial unrest backed up by Corbyn shooting off his mouth in parliament about the wicked Tories causing it all. The cry will be for people to take to the streets. Nothing will motivate unrest faster than the lights going off, trains and buses not running, petrol blockades and the like. Take away the everyday things we take for granted, and people will soon get pissed off.
The question will then be will Cameron turn out to be a Heath or a Thatcher? A capitulator or a fighter? A winner or a loser? Well, you’ll need to form your own opinions on that one!
So vote Corbyn if you want to bring the country to it’s knees and return to the good old three day week. God help us!
