Backed By Tories - Starmer Is The New Guardian Of The Status Quo

Image
Nye Bevan once said, “what is Toryism but organised spivvery?”. Quite a few of today’s politicians enter the political arena to ensure life’s riches are preserved exclusively for the few. That’s why the wealthiest will bankroll them. Sadly, the organised spivvery that Bevan spoke of at the Manchester Labour Rally in July of 1948 has found its new home within Keir Starmer’s Labour Party in January of 2023.  Don’t get me wrong, the Tories have been at it since dinosaurs roamed freely in Swindon.  Indeed, if you want to talk about corruption and cronyism in British politics you only need to go back to the arrival of Boris Johnson in 2019 and slowly work your way through the following couple of years.  The Tories epitomise dodgy deals, job-for-the-boys and blatant corruption. We expect no less from a government that is in danger of having Britain listed as a globally-recognised human rights abusers.  But do we expect better from the Labour Party?  Well, no, we don’t, not now, because the L

Impossible To Support - Replacing One Tory With Another Isn’t Change

Policies are many, principles are few, policies will change, but principles never do.  Unless you are Keir Starmer, of course, because his principles shift with the changing of the seasons and the tides of the sea.  I put this blog out last Sunday. The tweet has been seen 230,000 times, the blog has been read more than 30,000 times, and more than a thousand people left comments.  Many of the comments were just a simple “No” to the question, “Do you trust Keir Starmer and the Labour Party?”, and many of the replies were from deeply frustrated mouth-foaming Starmer supporters. Touch a nerve, did I? Glad to hear it.  I’m not sure how many times I need to repeat this, but I will keep saying it until the end of time.  If you think ushering in a Labour government under the leadership of the knight of the realm Starmer is somehow getting the Tories out you are utterly fucking deluded.  You are replacing a shower of right-wing Tories with a moral-free, vacuous, establishment-hooplicking, righ

Do You Really Trust Keir Starmer And The Labour Party? I don’t

  Let’s ask some questions about trust.  Do you really trust the Labour Party to ensure your NHS is given the staff and funding that it needs to operate safely and effectively when Keir Starmer and Wes Streeting receive funding from private healthcare donors? I don’t. Do you really trust the Labour Party to build more social housing and put a roof over the heads of 230,000 people who are currently without a place they are able to call home? I don’t. Do you really trust the Labour Party to heavily invest in social care, ensuring dignity for each and every one of us when we need it the most? I don’t. Do you really trust the Labour Party to stand up to aggressive rogue states inflicting destitution, oppression, and death upon the people of the land that the occupiers have illegally seized, unless the victims promise to fight a war with Putin on your behalf? I don’t. Do you really trust the Labour Party to significantly reduce the cost of living that is forcing people to make the horrendou

Made In Downing Street: Blame The Tories For The NHS Crisis

Image
Don’t blame it on the nurses,  Don’t blame it on the Covid,  Don’t blame it on the Mick Lynch,  Blame it on the Tories. Your National Health Service is facing the worst crisis in its history.  You have a choice.  You can swallow the overwhelmingly dishonest Tory supporting mainstream media medicine if you wish - what with the British press being the least trusted in Europe - or you can listen to the medical professionals on the ground.  It’s a no-brainer for me.  I don’t care about Harry’s new book, or his numerous appearances on Netflix and ITV. Why would I?  If his warts-and-all tale of privileged woe hastens the departure of the monarchy then he has served a purpose, but the only purpose he is serving at the moment, unintentionally, is one that presents a gift for the British media because it means they can bury the NHS crisis on page 16 next to the daily horoscopes.  Surely nobody really cares about William having a bigger bedroom than Harry when thousands of ordinary people, today
