Jeremy Corbyn is Ned Stark in Game Of Westminster.

The disgusting, fabricated anti-Semitism row that has engulfed Labour over the past week is, I fear, the start of a putsch against Jeremy Corbyn. I'm not going to get into the details of the row, except to say that I broadly agree with Ken Livingstone and the other Labour MP about the evils of the Israeli, Zionist elite.  Now, as my readers will know, I'm no supporter of Labour, but I do feel that JC is  for all his faults - and there are many - an honest and decent politician, at least as honest and decent as a politician can be. I think he is principled and believes in traditional Labour ideas. That is probably why the many Blairites who still haunt the party can't stand him and want him out. They are arguably still reeling from the fact that one of their own didn't get the leaders job last year and the pesky grass-roots supporters used democracy to put someone in power that they wanted. Imagine that, the Labour party, the supposed party of the working man allowing its members to have a direct say in the running of the party. Good grief! Arguably, that was what really pissed the Blairites off. That was the whole problem with Blairism; it was complete style over substance and was about as far removed from democracy as you could feasibly get without going over the threshold into complete totalitarianism. Although some, like me, would argue that it was completely totalitarian in nature and ideology. But I digress, slightly.


Anyway, this manufactured row is nothing but the warning shots being fired at JC. It is the first salvo in the battle to have him removed. I would bet good money that if Labour don't make significant gains in this month's local elections, the Blairities will use that as the excuse they need to oust their leader. Now, historically, Labour are far more tolerant of their leader than say the Tories, who can organise a coup very easily if need be. However, after the disaster that was Milliband and now Corbyn, the disgruntled factions within the party will be looking for any and every excuse they can find to kick him out. In this respect I've always thought of JC as a bit like Ned Stark from GOT. Honest, principled and loyal, but rather weak and out of his depth and totally unprepared to play the Game of Westminster. Granted he was a very militant back-bencher and often voted against his own party, specifically under Blair, but that was ill training for the role he now finds himself in. Much as Ned did himself when he moved to Kings Landing. I just wonder which member of the Labour party will take the role of Joffrey and order Corbyn's head removed. Tragically, there are far too many traitors to choose from.

Stop being so apathetic and letting this government screw over the most vulnerable in our society. WAKE UP!

The ONLY true saying in politics that I've ever heard is the one that says: 'The people get the politicians and the Governments they deserve.'

I've been in two minds about writing this post because over the last 6 months or so I've found myself becoming more and more depressed with the state that our country finds itself in. I've been caught up in the frame of mind that screams " What FING good does it do!" However, over the past two months I've found myself becoming so incredibly angry that I feel I must write, I must speak out and I must do my best to get people thinking.

For me, as I've said many times on this blog; our collective sense of apathy and that misplaced stoic, stiff-upper-lip don't rock the boat mentality is killing us. It might work great in war time, but for everything else it makes us easy targets for being screwed. We are increasingly becoming our own willing, compliant prisoners in a vile and heartless political game of divide and conquer.  The two major issues that have arisen recently have been the NHS doctors strikes and last week's shocking and purely evil attack on disabled people. As much as I blame and hate the politicians and MSM for lying to us and deliberately manipulating us, my anger is increasingly turning to the people of this country for being such stupid, willing sheep. WAKE THE HELL UP!

Tomorrow is Budget day, when Gideon will stand in the commons and lie to us about how well the economy is doing, how strong it is, how well he has done as chancellor. In fact, the truth is he has MISSED every single one of his fiscal targets for the last 6 years. NOT ONE OF THEM HAS HE COME CLOSE TO ACHIEVING. We have the lowest growth in terms of productivity and wages since records began. Yet he and his governmental pals have allowed endless tax breaks for the super wealthy, have allowed all MPs a 10% rise, whilst the average worker has had to endure a 1% wage increase for the last 6 years (which given the cost of living and inflation has really meant a significant wage decrease). Gideon, has done shady, back-door deals with companies like Google so they can work out how much tax they'd like to pay back, instead of paying back the billions they actually owe. Incidentally, several of Google's big wigs also hold crucial advisory roles within this Conservative government. Furthermore, Gideon and his child were flown out to the recent Super Bowl (all allegedly paid for by Google) only a couple of days after this incredible deal was made - which was then spun every which was as a resounding success for the chancellor and HMRC. What a load of bullshit.

Added to which, we are told to prepare tomorrow for even more cuts to vital public services. Ask yourselves this. If our economy is doing so well, why the hell do we need even more austerity, more food banks and cuts to things which most of us badly need, whilst the Tory toffs and their mates get  a whopping 10% pay rise and tax breaks? Again, I urge people TO WAKE UP!
Although, perhaps the most disgusting recent attack was the £30 cut to disabled benefits by Mr. Ian Duncan Smith and his department (which was stealthily rushed through parliament using a little known clause that allows MPs to vote things through without the approval of the Lords). Again, incidentally, this was voted for by ALL Conservative MPs. A government that can attack and make things worse for the most vulnerable and sick in our society has shown how heartless and corrupt it really is. Yet, perhaps the most shocking aspect of all this is the disgusting sense of apathy by the British people. We are letting this shit happen to us!
It is well past time this country mobilised as a collective force, took to the streets and called a mass general strike to force the government to back down. How much more will it take before this pathetic country says ENOUGH?!

I'm reminded of the poem (though I can't remember the name or the author) which talks about how someone didn't say anything when they came for the sick, the old, this group, that group, until one day the government came for them, but then there was nobody left to protest. (if somebody knows which one I'm referring to please drop a note in the comments).

As I have noted many times in this blog, it is all very well moaning about austerity and the wicked government in the pub or on message boards, comment sections, but until those of us who can, get up off our backsides and take direct and sustained action, nothing will change. As the quote goes: 'All that is needed for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing.'

As a disabled person myself, I am very limited in what I can do and I do see the irony perhaps about venting my anger on a blog, instead of going out there and fighting when that is what I'm encouraging others to do. However, I feel I have a very valid excuse (and in my youth when I was able I did take part in a couple of protests).
I
t is high time we put aside our apathy and started to fight and challenge the government. We are many in number, they are few. If we work together collectively, they would have to back down. However, it won't happen until we wake up, stop being so typically British and start giving a damn about ourselves and our country as a whole. I fear time is fast running out when we won't be able to stop this. It is time to say ENOUGH!


WAKE UP AND START FIGHTING!

A few more thoughts on the migrant crisis

A few more thoughts on the migrant crisis.

Firstly, I am absolutely disgusted to hear that the surrounding Arab/Muslim countries have refused point blank to help these refugees.  Thus far they haven't accepted a single refugee. That to me speaks volumes about how compassionate, united and open the Islamic faith really is. If these wealthy and large neighbouring countries can't and won't even help their fellow Muslims, what does that tell you about the religion of peace? The dark irony here is that if these refugees were allowed to settle in those countries it would be far easier for them to integrate into those societies, given that they share a similar culture, religion and values. Instead, the idiots over here have started another ill thought out, bleeding heart campaign, welcoming the migrants. As I mention in my last post, once these people leave the first safe country they come to, whilst fleeing the horrors in Syria, they are no longer refugees, they then become economic migrants. You may think that is cold and harsh, but it is a fact.
Peter Hitchens wrote an excellent article in his MOS column yesterday about the migrant crisis. As usual he hits the nail on the head with everything he has to say about it. He also echoes many of my fears about the impact that allowing several thousand more Muslims (possibly up to 40,000) will have on our communities, our schools, hospitals and housing. I believe he also talks about how this influx will help to weaken our own native culture and destroy our identity, and possibly help speed up the rate by which this country could soon be converted into a predominantly Muslim one. We must NEVER allow that to happen. I hate violence and confrontation nor am I condoning, encouraging or wishing for it. However, if it came to a civil war I would fight with everything I had to make sure this country was not taken over by the vile quasi-religious culture that is Islam. I make no apologies for wanting to protect my Anglo-Saxon, English values, cultures and democracy, which I strongly believe is far superior to that of Islam. Furthermore, in terms of security, the papers are today full of stories about how IS are bragging that they've used the cover of the migrants to secretly get lots (possibly thousands) of their sleeper agents/bombers into Europe. Now, granted, that may be all bluster and rubbish and I hope that it is. However, something tells me there is more than a grain of truth to those statements. If that does indeed prove to be the case Europe and Britain are in HUGE trouble. This is another reason why we should NOT be taking in anymore migrants until we have purged the middle-east of these nut jobs. As I said in my last post, I am not without sympathy for these poor people, but we must look after our own country first and protect our own people before helping anyone else. In this regard, I completely agree with Australia's stance on migrants. Yes it may be cold and harsh, but at least they have the balls and the guts to put their own country and people first. If only we had politicians with the stomach to do the same. 

Secondly, another interesting point that was made about this crisis, both by Peter Hitchens and by a few people I know who have recently travelled through Calais, is that the vast majority of the people who are coming across the Mediterranean and ending up in places like Calais are young men in their 20-30s. Many of them are also from Africa, not just Syria and Libya, but the rest of the continent. Now, call me cynical, but doesn't that further emphasis that this is far more about economic migration, than simply a refugee crisis? Of course the MSM and the bleeding heart liberals won't dare mention this as it doesn't fit their narrative. This just goes to prove the old saying that in war the first casualty is always the truth.


Finally, the last thing which has really disturbed me this weekend was when I saw the father of those two little drowned boys going back to the family home in Syria to show journalists around. Something about that struck me as terribly wrong. If things in Syria really are so bad and horrible with the civil war and IS breathing down your neck; so horrible that you rightly and understandably flee with your family to the safety of Turkey and then try and get into Europe, which results in the heartbreaking death of your children. Why on earth would you go back to the country you were fleeing from? To my mind, even if he is trying to show the world the horrors they were trying to escape, it still makes his children's' death a sham and a slap in their faces. In any case that idea doesn't work on me. To me if things are so bad (and I'm not saying they're not) you do NOT go back to Syria for ANY reason. I would argue that you don't sully the awful deaths of your children by going back to the hell hole you were desperate to flee from. There was just something about seeing that which didn't sit right with me and made me feel very uncomfortable. I'll leave it up to you, readers of this blog, to make up your own minds as to why the father decided to do that.

Thoughts on the refugee crisis

This refugee crisis is the direct result of our idiotic western politicians and their stupid vainglorious, misguided belief that you could bring democracy to a part of the world that is locked in a deep rooted, tribal and fundamentalist culture and has been since the 9th century.

Today in the Express newspaper, Anna Soubrey claims that this refugee crisis could have been avoided if we'd bombed Syria. God give me strength! Spare me from the idiotic and uneducated prattlings of deluded idiots.

No, Ms Soubrey, bombing Syria would have made this crisis worse you ignorant woman. This migrant/refugee crisis is the result of IS, which came about as a direct result of the much lauded, at the time, 'Arab Spring' in Libya, Syria Egypt et al. Those of us who know and understand that part of the world were all but screaming at those idiots over here who were basically dancing in the street and rejoicing at how wonderful it would be to finally have democracy in that part of the world.

No, democracy as we understand it can't and won't EVER be possible in the middle east because of the violent, tribal and deep rooted quasi religious cultural practices that have been going on nearly since the dawn of time. 98% of that part of the world adheres to a deeply fundamentalist version of Islam and it is the total antithesis of what we understand as democracy in the west. Ergo, it was NEVER going to work/happen. Again, those of us who know the history and culture of that part of the world could just see the void being filled by the more extremist elements, who had been waiting decades to finally seize power from the likes of Ghadafi and Assad. Ghadafi himself warned several years ago that without him in charge of Libya the hard-line, Islamist factions would swarm through his country and into Europe. How right he was. Now, in no way do I think he or Assad are/were good people; yes they are/were brutal dictators, but say what you like, both men kept those extremists at bay and held their countries together. Much like Saddam. However, these problems didn't start with the bombing of Iraq in 2003, these problems have been simmering under the surface for centuries. What we did was to remove the safety nets that had kept a lid on all this historical/cultural evil.

Our western, idiotic politicians are therefore partly to blame for this refugee crisis, we caused it by our own arrogance. We, blindly believed that a part of the world that is locked in primitive, tribal and cultural practices could free itself of that 9th century, fundamentalist dogma and embrace westernised values. What a sick joke!

If we had bombed Syria and overthrown Assad, IS would have completely taken over that country and the horrors and evil we hear about would be even worse. Again, it just shows how deluded and vainglorious our Westminster cretins really are. Give me strength!

The only way you are going to beat IS and I mean this very literally, is by deploying several million soldiers all at once (that goes for all the other countries too) and we need to go through the middle east and purge it of radicals. Then, here's the important bit, we (or more accurately America) need to adopt our old Colonial systems and governance and be prepared to run that part of the world for at least the next 30-50 years, following the models that we had when Britain was an empire (granted we can't do that anymore as we don't have the resources/money -  this is why America would have to do it)

That is the only way you will ever beat IS and bring relative peace to that part of the world. It must be completely purged of the evil of IS and then totally colonialised. Until we are prepared to go down that road, that part of the world will forever be a hell hole.

In addition, Britain should not be taking in anymore refugees. We are a relatively small island and our infrastructure can't cope. Cameron can claim all he likes that it will only be 4000, but once you back down and let them in, I can promise you there will be thousands flooding our country. Furthermore, in terms of security there could quite possibly be up to a thousand of those 4000 refugees who are IS sleeper agents. IS have threatened to use this tactic themselves, so I'm not being over dramatic. Plus, by importing more Muslims into our country and their higher birth rates we are arguably speeding up the rate at which this, alien, quasi-religious culture will take over this country. At the rate they are out breeding us, it could be as little as 30 years before us indigenous, white English become the minority and are ruled over by Islam, We should be fighting back and stopping this from happening, not taking in more of them. From that standpoint I totally agree with the Hungarian PM who doesn't want to take ANY migrants because he doesn't want his country infected by Islam. God for him, if only we had a PM with the balls to say things like that. Also, am I the only one who absolutely hates the sick, emotional blackmail that is being thrown at us by the spineless, bleeding-heart media?

Whilst I do have sympathy for those poor people who are fleeing God knows what horrors, and whilst I can accept that the blame for the destruction of their homelands does lay partly with us. If they are genuine refugees, you get to the first safe country and YOU STAY THERE; once you then decide to move on, as far as I'm concerned, you then become an economic migrant and are no longer a refugee. Harsh, maybe, but true. Now, whilst photos of dead children are heartbreaking and hard to take; who could not feel sadness for the little boy? That child's death is NOT our fault We should not be emotionally blackmailed into feeling bad that we don't want to take in swarms of these migrants. Something to keep in mind is that over many decades, since the second world war actually, Britain has taken in more genuine refugees than any other country in Europe, we've done our bit.


Yes, I feel sorry for these people but our country is at breaking point. We have a housing shortage, countless people using food-banks, elderly and disabled people being forced out of their homes, having their benefits cut. Charity begins at home and until we have sorted our own people out and sorted this mess of a country out, we should not be allowing more immigrants in. I will not be made to feel shame and neither should anyone else in this country. We in Europe are doing a great deal to set up camps in other middle-eastern countries. These camps might not be great, but they are safe and the refugees are being looked after. As far as I'm concerned that is enough and if we REALLY want to help these people we need to purge the middle-east of IS and then reintroduce complete colonialisation for at least 50 years.

It is right that minorities who don't like us, our values, country and culture should be told to F**K OFF!

There is some bad/offensive language used in this blog post, so you have been warned.

I was reading in the Express newspaper online, yesterday about how someone had put a Lord Kitchener inspired poster up in a Wetherspoons, informing those Muslims who didn't like our country and who wanted to live under Sharia Law to f**k off back to their monstrous shitholes where they came from. Link to article: http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/600126/Racist-Lord-Kitchener-poster-Wetherspoon-s-Muslims-get-the-f-out-of-Britain

I have to say I think this poster was a brilliant idea and I completely agree with the sentiment of it. As some of you may know I have increasingly become very angry at the way the PC brigades forced (and failed) attempt to ram multiculturalism down our throats has escalated at pace over the last 15 years or more. I am sick to death of it. In all honesty what has multiculturalism really enhanced about this country, other than food which I can accept has been a big benefit. My answer would be absolutely nothing. All it has done, in my opinion, is ghettoise large parts of the country and turn them into shitholes. We have allowed in totally alien cultures that are rooted in primitive and barbaric practices: Forced marriage, honour killings, FGM, Halal slaughter and oppression of women - the burka should be banned in this country. Furthermore, these practices are not just exclusive to Asian societies, there have been other atrocities carried out by other ethnic groups who still want to carry out primitive cultural and abhorrent practices from their homelands. The torture and murder of Victoria Climbie springs to mind.  Additionally, it has also made us feel shame at our own culture and twisted things so badly that we feel afraid to express our own views, values and stand up for our own culture because we might be branded racist, or God forbid, offend a minority.  Although, strictly speaking that term racist  shouldn't be used if you challenge Muslims or Islam, because neither is technically a race, it is a religion. However, it is actually becoming more of a political movement than simply a religion, which helps to render the term of racism even more redundant. Be that as it may, I have started owning the term of racist if it has been levelled against me for my views and being proud of being called such. I have also been called a bigot, a little Englander, fascist and other assorted terms, all of which I've cheerfully accepted with a smile and said thank you to the assholes who have thrown them out at me.

I firmly believe that my culture, values, principles and ways of conducting our life are far superior than large sections of the Muslim (and other minority) communities. I will and must make a point here that not all Muslims (or other minorities) are bad and primitive, just as not all English people are good and right. There are Muslims out there who you might regard as very modern and have fully embraced western culture, values and ideas. These are the ones who I would argue have seen the light and also realised that as they have come to live in our country, it is only fair that they live as we do and integrate fully into our society. I applaud those people and welcome them. As I have said before, there is an old saying - when in Rome live as the Romans do.

Actually, this is the main point of the poster which inspired this blog. It doesn't say that ALL Muslims should leave. It simply (and rightly) points out that those who do not like this country, our values, our culture and who wish to live as they have/do in the middle east should go back there. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong, nor offensive about that. It is common sense and being proud of our indigenous culture and society. Again, I welcome anyone who wants to come here so long as they want to accept and assimilate our culture into how they live their lives. If they wish to live as Muslims and keep Islam as their faith and their cultural foundation, then they should go back to the middle east or another Islamist country.

For far too long this country has been far too tolerant and welcoming of other cultures, cultures who have no desire to integrate and assimilate fully into our western, liberal standards. Cultures who have no common ground with ours and whose practices are the absolute antithesis of ours. Consequently, because of the huge influx of migrants and people from such alien environments, this country has struggled to cope. Our communities are increasingly fractured, filled with bitterness, resentment and suspicion. Our infrastructure in terms of housing, schools and medical provision is at breaking point. Indeed, we have schools in parts of larger cities where English is relegated to sometimes only the fourth common language spoken. There are reports of Islamic faith schools who openly tell their students not to mix with us 'infidels' because we are unclean. Additionally, look at the abuse of young girls by Muslim gangs in towns like Rotherham, Rochdale et al and the Trojan horse scandal of schools in the Birmingham area. Furthermore, there are a number of videos on youtube (if they haven't been removed) showing English people in places like Birmingham being told to get out of certain neighbourhood by Asian men who patrol areas of the city to keep non Muslims out. I am told this also happens in Leicester, Bradford and other towns with a predominantly Asian majority.  Additionally, in  those cities and possibly a few others, it is possible to see signs proclaiming that this is a Sharia controlled area. Indeed, in Dewsbury which is in my neck of the woods, they have Sharia courts set up to deal with matters concerning Muslim people. I am sure this practice also happens in other cities and towns too.

This, to my mind, is totally wrong and needs to be stopped and dismantled. Communities who wish for that sort of thing need to be told point blank to f**k off. Again, I say if that makes me a bigot, a racist, a supremacist or any other derogatory term you wish to throw at me, I am happy to own it and say, yes I am and you know what? I am proud to be any and all of those things, because I believe that that sort of thing is abhorrent, multiculturalism is wrong and it needs to be got rid of. I am proud of my country, its history, its values, its democracy and my culture. I am a proud nationalist and I actually think each country should have a singular dominant culture and if you go and live in that country you should be required to convert to that culture and assimilate into that way of life.
I salute the person who put that poster up in Wetherspoons, you were speaking for a great many pissed of English people who are tired of having to bend over and take it, who think the same as what was written on that poster but dare not say such things. Well, I am tired of having to keep quiet about things like that in case it offends anyone. I will say that if you are an immigrant here of whatever faith, creed or minority, or even if you were born here, but you do still hate this country, us English, our values, culture and want to live as they do in the middle east or elsewhere - bugger off back there then.


Incidentally, although yesterday people were allowed to comment on that story in The Express online and quite a few people did, who all seemed to agree with what was written on that poster, in no uncertain terms. I note that today it is not possible to add comment. That is also very wrong, we should NOT be afraid to offend people. It is time we started being far more vocal in our dislike of those practices that don't have any place in our English culture. And we certainly shouldn't feel ashamed of openly telling those minorities who don't like this country, our values, principles and people to FUCK OFF!

A few thoughts on Jeremy Corbyn


Probably like many of you, I have been watching the Labour Party leadership race with keen interest. Now, although I am NOT a Labour supporter and think of myself as being right-wing, I do find myself being drawn to Jeremy Corbyn.

I know you'll probably find that strange and hard to understand given that he is my political polar opposite. However, what I admire and respect about him is the fact that he is not trying to go for the centre-ground. He is not cut from the modern political cloth of being all spin and no substance; party before country and self before party. He actually (from what I can see from all that I've heard and read) has those old fashioned, now deeply hated by modern politicians, things called principles and a strong set of beliefs. Rather than trying to gain power at any cost by appealing to the middle ground; he has firmly set out his stall and drawn clear lines. He doesn't flip flop from one focus group to the next or make a stunning number of U-turns (Andy Burnham is your man for that.) He simply says this is me, these are my policies, these are the things I believe in. If you like what you hear vote for me, if not don't.

That's another thing; the guy actually has clear, radical policies. Granted, this is where I part company from him because as much as I wish his policies would work, they are simply not practical. I love his ideas about renationalising services and utilities, about re-industrialising the north by opening up the pits and steel works and factories (oh how I wish that idea could be achieved). Unfortunately, these ideas have been costed at around 100 billion pounds. No way on earth can we afford that. Also, given that the EU has made nationalising utilities all but illegal, it simply can't be done while we remain locked in the EU. He may be a radical and open to the idea of a referendum on the EU, but I think (God forbid) if he ever did become PM that kind of democracy, which is still the antithesis of Labour and its belief in big state control, would be quickly snuffed out. In short, I admire Mr Corbyn's honesty and his principles. However, I think his ideas and policies - though well intentioned - are totally bonkers and not in the least achievable. I have written before about why socialism can't ever work so I'm not going to go into that here. However, all I will say is that Corbyn's brand of socialism would scare away the wealth creators with his level of taxes and the amount of borrowing that would need to be done would basically kill this country.

The other aspect that I have enjoyed throughout this leadership contest has been the likes of Blair and Mandleson et al, trying their damndest to throw Corbyn off track. As my friend Rach pointed out to me today. These idiots don't get the fact that the more they intervene the more likely people are to vote for Corbyn. She is absolutely spot on. Actually she should be writing her own blog, which would be amazing and brilliant to read, but oh well :) However, back to topic. The issue there is that the ex heavy weights of the New Labour project just cannot comprehend why their brand of politics is now so toxic to people. Although, I suspect that this is largely because they never gave a rat's ass for the people to begin with. To them what mattered most was gaining power by any means possible and holding onto it. You see that's the problem with centre-ground politics. It hides behind seemingly noble sayings like trying to be a broad church, a politics for everyone, where every view is important and everybody can feel they have a stake in society. In reality this is pure spin, style over substance and completely hollow and empty. Being stuck in the centre is the best method there is to enable a party to dupe people into voting for them, but it doesn't give you any room to move so that you can take radical policy decisions to REALLY sort out the country. Basically Blair's 'third way' politics was just there for political elites to feather their own nests and screw the British people. In addition, as Blair et al have pointed out (perhaps fairly) if people vote Jeremy for Leader of Labour, it is highly unlikely that Labour will get elected. However, what is the point of having a Labour party as we had for 13 years, in power who are Tory-lite and are only interested in looking after the elites? There is none. I would much rather have a principled, honest and true working class Labour party, out of power and in perpetual opposition than have them sell their principles and values just to win power. After 13 years of Labour and 5 years of the 'heir to Blair', Cameron, people are understandably excited by a fresh kind of politics (although not fresh to anyone who is 35 and older). A politics of clear direction and seeming honesty. Dare I say a politics of substance over spin?

 

The other thing to keep in mind with every attack that is launched on Jeremy from the likes of Blair et al. If they are trying to attack you, you must be doing something right.

In addition, the other leadership contenders are all firmly shackled (to varying degrees) to the New Labour project and so can't and don't offer anything new. As far as I can tell, other than a few watered down versions of Corbyn's ideas the others have no policies for what they would do as leader. Again, people are waking up to this and they don't want wishy-washy, vague, spin, focus group led politicians. I firmly believe that the other candidates have been caught totally unprepared for the phenomena that is sweeping through the traditional Labour supporters of this country. The voting public are gradually realising what a meaningless, vacuous empty shell centre-ground politics is and they (quite rightly and reasonably) want a Labour party that stands up for the working class and goes back to being true to its historical principles. Interestingly, what this reaction from traditional Labour supporters has also highlighted is just how undemocratic the New Labour project actually was. It has turned the spotlight firmly on its vile singular goal of gaining power at any cost and holding onto it. Again, this is evident because of the Labour elites being horrified that the voting public look set to put in a leader who is not one of the club and who has a totally different ethos to politics than they do. Sorry, but that is democracy. It's about power being given to the mass rather than a small group of elites and the elites within Labour are shitting themselves. Personally, that gives me a tremendous amount of pleasure. I had to laugh when one such elite seriously suggested that even if Corbyn wins the leadership race, he should be instantly removed, hahahaha. In a nutshell, that neatly encompasses exactly how New Labour viewed the British people and why these disgusting, slimy bastards should be hounded out and thrown into a shit pit. This is yet another reason why I hope Jeremy wins, because if he does I believe he will kick out the scum who brought about New Labour and actually go some way towards setting right some of the horrible things they did to this country whilst in power.

For those several reasons alone, I wish Jeremy Corbyn well and I hope he wins the election to become leader of Labour.
