Just one question, Mr Corbyn…


So somebody within Labour has leaked a copy of their draft manifesto. Interestingly they leaked it to both the left wing Mirror and the right wing Telegraph. One could argue it’s to embarrass Labour by exposing it to the people before it can be watered down, or alternatively it could be so circumvent the meeting taking place today to agree the manifesto. It’s already out there, so it can’t be changed?

Any which way, it’s the most left wing manifesto since Michael Foot’s 1983 document dubbed “the longest suicide note in history”. It includes renationalisation of mail, energy and railways. It abolishes tuition fees. It rips up trade union legislation – even making it compulsory to put guards back on driver only trains. It lowers the voting age to 16 because 16 year olds, knowing fuck all about real life, are more likely to vote labour.

But the best bit from my point of view is that there’s ‘no Brexit without a trade deal’ if Labour are elected. So if we get a Labour government, all the EU has to do is refuse to give us a trade deal, and Brexit is cancelled. An incompetent, naive negotiating stance which in itself proves that Labour is unfit to govern and has no regard for democracy.

Yes, there’s lots of crap in this document but that’s not the issue. The real issue is the shed loads of money this will all cost. And that’s the real question Labour are just not prepared to answer – where will they get the money?

And knowing just how good the Labour front bench are with sums, and the number of times they can spend the same money I doubt they’re prepared to tell you.

Because the real answer is : it’s coming out of your pocket…
