Corbyn Is …… Momentum is…..

Tom Watson has been let out of his kennel to attack Corbyn. Not by biting him, but by sniffing out the miscreants who are supporting him. Those wicked Labour members who for years have watched the party they loved and believed in be turned into the Tories on the snide. These wretched individuals who had suffered the Blairite invasion of Labour, it’s metamorphosed form New Labour, take away all hope they had of a fair and decent society.  Still they paid their dues. Still they canvassed for the wretched Right Wingers, hoping these usurpers would see the error of their ways and act for the people.

Who are these naive individuals? They are the members of Momentum. No! They aren’t entrysts! They were already in the party. They were the ignored, the used and abused. The British populace, who hadn’t had a voice. Then! Some idiot thought it would be a good idea to put Corbyn on the ballot. Why? So the idiots would think that New Labour had learned from the loss of 5 million voters and hundreds of thousands of members. Not to mention the whole of Scotland.

The idiots saw salvation. Corbyn was what was needed. A man of integrity, decency, morality and an inalienable lack of greed or hunger for power. The idiots saw a chance for genuine choice and acted accordingly. They needed a vehicle to push forth and that was how Momentum was formed.

We all know the result of the election for leader. Corbyn won by a landslide. He beat four other opponents with a greater majority than their combined vote. Let that sink in: combined vote. He trounced them. He annihilated them. Embarrassed them. Humiliated them.

Now, any true democratic party. A party with people who believed in democracy, would have looked and thought; this man has something people want. This man is what a leader should be. He attracts people. Not by lying to them. Not by polished platitudes or spin, but through honesty. Any true democrat would  be humbled by such an understanding. Not the New Labour brigade. Never them. If honesty and integrity was what people wanted, they were out of a job.

Look at the history of these individuals: Angela Eagle, forced on her CLP (Constituency Labour Party) by Blair and his henchmen Alistair Campbell and Peter Mandelson, Jack Dromey forced on his CLP by the same. As were many others. Hilary Benn a disastrous individual  who suffers from a lack of moral compass, probably due to his hatred for his father, Tony Benn, a man who renounced his elitist heritage. This still smarts for Hilary. He believes he was robbed of his hereditary right to rule.

What smarts for them is that Corbyn, with his idiotic concept of democracy for the many and not the few, is that it eradicates the opportunity of following Blair into the realms of Multi-millionaire sycophant to the filthy, vile and immoral rich. Their years of sniping and backstabbing and generally fucking people over would be to no avail. This can not be so!

Plots were hatched. Snide words were spoken into the ears of snide reporters. Lies were manufactured against honest and democracy believing individuals and coups were plotted. Time was on their side. Yet fear was in their minds. Then, the most catastrophic misfortune befell them. An idiot called Cameron decided to honour an election pledge and called a referendum.

On 23/06/2016  the British public punched the Tories in the Conservative Party and those in the New Labour Party straight in the nether region. Winding them severally.

This would never do! This was a very dangerous time for the career minded, democracy hating Blairites.  The Tories were down and out. Jesus! A genuine democrat could be elected Prime Minister in less than a few months. Their gravy train would be dry. Their corporate pay backs would be gone. Only one thing could be done. Corbyn had to be removed.

Then came the most idiotic, imbecilic, incompetent coup in history. A coup that was aptly named: Chicken Coup. Which basically entailed sniping to Right Wing reporters and resigning from the shadow cabinet in half hour stints. Corbyn must go was their mantra, he is a nice man but not a leader was their lie.

History shows that he was a leader and he wasn’t going anywhere. He is a democrat. Something they had little understanding of. It wasn’t his choice to resign. He had been given the mandate from the members of the party to take them to a general election, one that was months away until the Chicken Coup. So they tried to push him off the ballot so as to not stand against him. For they are undemocrats, and didn’t want the plebs making the choice.

It failed miserably. For in their haste to oust. With their fear of a man of integrity leading the country, they forgot to ask the most fundamental question: Who was capable of leading the party? The answer came in the form of the duplicitous Angela Eagle, or so she thought. Yet any within the party and the jackals outside knew only too well, that Angela was never competent for that role. She had been brought into the party because of her malleability and devotion to her ego. Never to be the palm greaser general. She was the patsy. In her own arrogant mind she had believed the plotters when they had promised and stroked her ego.

Only Owen Smith could be the man to stand. What a man. What a disaster. The plotters were so intent on Corbyn not being Prime Minister they had forgotten that there was no one of their ilk who was capable of leading. As history has demonstrated, in spite of vote rigging, suspending 100,000 plus members they lost. They lost overwhelmingly.

Any sane person would reflect on such a humiliating defeat and accept that their kind of politics in that particular party was over. But, they aren’t sane and they aren’t democrats. So now we have Tom Watson on any show and in any paper he can to attack Momentum. Although Momentum’s membership is tiny in comparison to the Labour membership, some 500,000, the former around 20,000, Watson has to attack it because he needs a villain.

Although Tom is that villain. Taking £500,000 from Max Mosley. I have no issue with Mr Mosley and whatever his political ambitions are. I do, as should you, have issue with a supposedly deputy leader of a democratic membership party taking large sums of money without any explanation as to why. I have never in my years on this planet known of any rich person giving money for the hell of it. From my experience they usually speculate to accumulate. Exactly what can be accumulated from Watson I shudder to think.

Tom is now a man on the run. Tom is the Angela Eagle of the moment. He has been sent on the attack, but without the shepherds whistle to guide him he’s biting at the ankles of his own. Now foaming at the mouth and snarling at all, it won’t be too long before the vet comes in to put him out of his misery.

My point is this: If by now you haven’t realised, as the Blairites can never realise, Corbyn has the support and the real possibility to be PM. Believe what you want and not what others may want you to believe. I think for the first time in a generation we have a leader of a political party who isn’t in it for himself. A democrat that has been given a mandate to lead. As a democrat he intends to do so. If he’s not for you. Fine. He’s for me and many more besides. If you want to follow the tinfoil loons like Watson, the misogynists like Owen Smith or the hateful Tories that’s your business.  Just don’t tell me that Corbyn is unelectable or Labour is infested with lefties, because of a poll or an odious attack dog like Watson.





Steel Has No Deal

So the Tory government refuses to support the steel industry in the UK. So what? This is globalisation at its finest. Where pauper economies out perform developed nations on the basis of poverty wages and substandard working practices. But no matter. This is the nature of Oligarchy Capitalism.

Bailing out banks is an inevitability. That’s where the oligarchs hoard their money. Not in the idiot banks that we save our meagre earnings in, but in protected banks in tax havens such as Switzerland. The true capital of the world. But, and it’s a major but, without the pretence of retail banks and their deception of value to currency, the billionaires stash would devalue to zero at the click of a mouse.

Commodities are collapsing the world over yet the banks are still protected. If you do the maths it explains that the entire world economy has been hijacked for the gratification of greedy megalomaniacs. Once commodities collapse, instinct should tell you that productivity and genuine wealth creation has collapsed. In almost all ‘developed economies’ deflationary pressure is at the brink of breaking point. We are not creating, building or manufacturing a better future. We are systematically being robbed of ours and our children’s future. No worries though. Property prices are still rising counter to wages and living standards.

These same banks are taking our tax money and creaming it off to their offshore accounts. The only growth in lending is through mortgages. This is very dangerous. Simply put: If business isn’t borrowing it isn’t investing in the future, it isn’t adding value to the economy through the creation of well paid jobs and a better infrastructure. Conversely, mortgage growth retracts genuine growth, as the gap between earnings and the expense of property grows wider. The housing boom eventually creates its own collapse, as entry to the market becomes more and more punitive. There is either a need for wage inflation or a decrease in house inflation to counteract this issue. Sadly the latter increases the chances of another banking system failure. Which in turn creates a new recession or depression depending on how hard it hits you and your family.

This is the path that the Tory government as placed us on. Austerity is the means by which this government tries to delay the inevitable. By cutting government expenditure through the privatisation of its assets it attempts to fix the books. Using fire sales of massively undervalued assets it gives the impression that it is creating wealth. In truth, all it is actually doing is delaying a greater debt burden onto the populace as the privatised assets demand greater and greater value for their criminally gained civic portfolios.


Jeremy Kyle Show

I know it is rather sad of me, but I have found myself watching the Jeremy Kyle Show, (repeats as they appear). I know that he is a narcissistic ego maniac, yet this isn’t what irks me. I am saddened by the state of his subjects, guests or whatever he describes them as. Not at the triviality, banality of the issues raised, but by the underlying problems that these people seem to reflect.

 The people he attacks, dehumanises, vilifies and undermines are fodder for ratings. Yet surely they should be more than this? His exaggerations over the purported Lie Detector tests aside (I stand be my test one million percent) there seems to be no closure for these people. What social purpose can this ‘show’, I suppose Freak Show would be more appropriate, really serve? 

 As for Graham, the reported counsellor, he upsets me most. This individual is supposed to be a trained professional, as opposed to Jeremy, who would fail at the label of being a trained monkey, yet he allows, if not assists, in letting Right Wing Jeremy attack these poor people.

Which leads me to my point. What kind of society do we live in where such individuals, (Kyle), are given airtime to voice their nonsensical ill-informed opinions? Have we evolved not one iota? Are our lives, mine included, so trivial, meaningless and void of direction, that such shows are our only way of feeling worthwhile? Has the last forty years of social and economical upheaval got us to the point where social conscience and human empathy are now negated with self-deluded piety?

I fear that we are on a long road, that eventually leads to an end which will serve no social or humane conclusion. My hope is that the Kyles of this world will be placed in a jungle, not to be filmed, but to make sure they can never get near a camera again. And where we, as a society, can return to looking at each other and those less fortunate than ourselves as human beings that need to be respected and aided. Surely that has to be the true human dream?
