Never underestimate the ability of people to be stupid…
A General Election is IMPORTANT! If you choose not to exercise your vote – and I will grant you that you have this right – then you abdicate your right to complain.
If you vote and your party loses, then fair enough you can criticise the winner.
If you vote and your party wins, then you can complain that you don’t like the way they are doing things.
If you don’t vote at all, then shut the fuck up! I don’t want to hear it!
And, frankly, I think if you vote for Corbyn, Abbott and McDonut then you need your bumps read – but you have the right to be that naive and at least you’ll also have earned the right to complain when they screw you over next week…
It’s filthy dirty lies spread by the fookin’ Tories! Everybody knows that Labour is the party dedicated to democratic socialism. How could you possibly believe any different when Comrade Jezza tells you so…?
Well, it’s actually quite easy. Not content with having the Labour leadership in it’s pocket and shoehorning one of McCuntsky aides into the Liverpool Walton constituency, today they announced that Shite’s chief of staff, Andrew Murray, is being drafted into the Labour team to help them
lose win the election.
Proudly announcing the appointment – and at the same time seriously pissing off staff at Labour HQ – Jezza praised Murray’s immense organisational abilities and added “I don’t believe that Andrew is anything other than a democratic socialist and a member of the Labour party, like me.” So quite way did he find it necessary to add that comment?
Well, until the end of last year, Andrew Murray was a card carrying member of the Communist Party. In his own words, “I’m a member of the Communist party. That’s where I am. Communism still represents, in my view, a society worth working towards – albeit not by the methods of the 20th century, which failed.” Presumably the 21st century method is to take control of the Labour party, or am I just being cynical?
He’s also a buddy of Jezza. He’s been a political ally for years and worked with him in the ‘Stop the War’ coalition. Murray was also reported to have been among those present at a top-secret summit held at Shite’s training centre in Surrey last summer. Others in attendance included Mr McCluskey, John McDonnell, Diane Abbott, Mr Corbyn’s top spin doctor Seumas Milne, journalist Paul Mason and Momentum chief, Jon Lansman. Draw your own conclusions as to the political leanings of that particular grouping.
One senior Labour figure commented “I had hoped it was Andy Murray, but this appointment probably nails it game, set and match for the Tories.” Another insider said: “They’re using the election as a means by which to take over Labour HQ.”
So if you want to live in a communist country that’s run by McCuntsky and Momentum then the message is pretty clear – vote Labour on June 8th. UNITE-ed they stand and, with any luck, UNITE-ed they’ll bloody well fall.
Otherwise, we’re all right royally fucked…
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…
He told ITV’s Good Morning Britain fronted by Piers Morgan : “I’m just pleased that the world is a sweeter and cleaner place now. It’s not merely these creatures [the Brighton bombers] crippled my wife, but they also murdered five of my friends.”
Norman is a neighbour of mine. I see him regularly in Waitrose doing his shopping. I have always been impressed by the forthright way he expresses his views. He talks a lot of sense and says things that others shy away from. He’s an honest and straightforward man.
I confess to my own strong views on the IRA London bombing campaign, having nearly been caught 3 times by the bastards. I used to work in Westminster Bridge Road. I came to work one morning to find my office covered in glass and the window blown out when they bombed the Central Office of Information which backed onto our building. They bombed High Holborn tube station under the office where I used to work. Thankfully I’d moved on by then but some of my friends were a bit shaken by that one!
The clincher for me was the Westminster Tube Station bomb. I used to buy a paper at the station when I got on the train in the morning. Sometimes I’d cut it a bit fine and buy one the other end – at Westminster Tube Station. That morning, I got my paper at my home station. I walked up the steps – right past the bomb – and started across the bridge. About 100 yards across there was an almighty bang as the bomb went off.
If I’d stopped to buy a newspaper that morning, I’d have been killed.
That was enough for me. I got a job out of London at less pay. It was better than being killed or – worse – maimed like Margaret Tebbitt.
I reflect at this stage on the words of Custer when he was minister for Indian affairs. When asked how he reconciled his views on Indians with being a ‘man of peace’, he replied “Ain’t nothing as peaceful as a dead Injun!” I believe McGuinness, man of peace, believed there was nothing as peaceful as a dead protestant.
So that’s why I’m with Norman. The world is a better place this morning…
