The Death of Labour
You might not be able to tell, but something happened in the past days. The Labour party has died.
Now this will probably surprise you, the conference isn’t
even over yet, and there’s a big bunch of crazy old Trots and young headless
chickens running around thinking they won, but in truth all they won is the
corpse of the Labour Party.
They will be dancing with the corpse for a while, we’ll see more than one leap of the famous dead cat bounce, but Labour is dead, and that’s a good thing.
Why, you ask?
Because it’s lost its way. If there was anything made clear at this conference, it’s the fact that Labour no longer has anything in common with the working class, and the voters, who have been punishing it in 2015, will happily nail the lid on its coffin.
This should have been obvious long ago, namely immediately after the 2015 elections. Sadly that takes brains and an understanding of the working class, and the very few working class Mps in #Labour have been so long in the Parliament that they’re ossified in their seats and have no idea who and what the working class of the 21st century needs.
Labour has stopped being the party of the working class, and that’s the problem, and the working class knows it.
The fetid beasts that have been lurking in Labour’s mud have come out, and their poison has finally come to the surface. What we have seen in the past few months should be enough for any decent person to reconsider things. Sadly the Labour members are so invested in the brand that they’ll still need a while to realize that the labour party of yore is dead, and that the corpse stinks and is crawling with Trotskyite maggots.
The infection has been lurking in the bowels of the party
for a long while. In the 80s Militant
purge, Neil Kinnock should have cut deeper and remove all of the corruption of
the far left. Jeremy Corbyn should have long ago been removed from the party
and all of the Militant sympathizers with him.
Corbyn and his ilk, the Jabbaesque Diane Abbott, the shady
McDonnell, the toady Burgon and the rest of the lot all have something in
common- they were never invested in the cause of actually making the UK better
for workers. That was a task that fell on Thatcher, and was taken on after her
by Tony Blair, and this is the reason they hate him so much. It was Thatcher that cut out the rot of the unions which metastasized
the UK in the 70s and allow Britain to grow. It was Thatcher that gave the
British working class what Labour never bothered to even consider, the
opportunity to be owners of their own homes, and it was Tony Blair who took
that work further by way of minimum
wage, and gave their children a way towards success with the EMA and SureStart.
You see, Socialist parties do not actually care about the workers and never have. Their purpose is not to make the workers’ lives better. On the contrary, their purpose is and has always bene to stir up the hatred and unhappiness until the working class finally, in their deluded little brains, rises up and smashes the horrible Capitalism with its audacity to not let people starve to death for the sake of the world’s deadliest ideology.
This is why none of the policies the Socialists pursue all
over the West have little to do with the good of the workers.
The British voters went Tory and UKIP because Labour refuses
to acknowledge their issues, and labour for its part has done very little to
even try and learn who today’s workers are.
The MPs of Champagne on the Wolds and North Trotskaya can afford to be
left and dream of a revolution, but British workers are seeing their wages buy
less and less in the past 10 years and their jobs being taken by Eastern
European immigrants. Gordon Brown has ransacked their pension pots and many of
them are scared, and they will not vote Labour ever again.
Labour is dead. The trickle of people leaving will soon turn into a stream as more and more people start realizing the ideals they were sold were lies and that the people who hijacked their party only live for themselves. In that, Jeremy Corbyn is typical- a man who never worked in his life, a privileged middle class Londoner so deep in the Westminster bubble he’s on the HoC’s furniture inventory and who has never proposed one measure that would have made the lives of British workers better, but had the time to start a motion to protest the alleged use of pigeon bombs in WW2.
The good people, the ones who care about their communities, are starting to realize they have been had. The decent people will leave, because they can’t in all honesty support and work for a party where antisemitism flourishes and half of the electorate are being called racists by a shameless hypocrite and expenses profiteer like Corbyn’s mistress Diane Abbott. The ones who want to keep their comfy chairs will grovel and beg, while Corbyn and his gang of nincompoops sink labour lower and lower. The party already has less elected representatives than a year ago, while “Don’t Know” is 10 points ahead of Corbyn in the polls about PM popularity.
Labour is dead. Give is a decent burial and let’s work to make a new workers’ party, because if we don’t, someone else will.
