The fact that the tories have been able to get as far as they have already, with a Brexit that means a dire poverty for the masses, and a dream of invincibility for the rich Tory fatcat – and all with barely a whimper from any opposition parties – says it all to me. Our Nation has become totally subsumed within the tory ideology that work pays (as long as your work is that of an investment banker, of course), and that the road back to health can surely be trodden by the dying and medically unable, the poor, and all those sub-species other that anything born Tory – but only through work that is increasingly poorly paid, and with all Human Rights stripped from them, so they don’t disturb the tory dream machine!
Unfortunately, the Tories have lost any sense of the meaning of justice and decency – as those went out the window as soon as they got into power – and all that’s left in their place is a venal need for more and more power, driven by greed!
Unless Jeremy Corbyn wakes up, and realises he needs to be totally opposing everything the Tories are pushing, we’ll never get rid of them – for a start, he should be calling for the total abolition of Universal Credit!
Tweaking with something that was designed never to work in the first place isn’t the answer, and there are many thousands of new Labour supporters who are waiting for Labour to make the move that will break the tory grip on power, and to the bringing back of the major investment needed, not only in our public services, but also in our manufacturing industries – this is what will create new jobs, not the forcible poverty of a people who are totally deserving of the help they used to get from a Social Service that was the envy of many countries, but is now the worst in Europe.
The tories were really very clever when they renamed everything under that umbrella as Welfare – it’s automatic for anyone hearing that word, to think of an undeserving sub-class of people – which is just the ticket for any born and bred tory, as they push their elitist crap ahead of the helping of a Nation brought low because of their banker friends’ greed!
Of course there is nothing but despair felt by those burdened with poverty and debt – they see no future whatsoever under a tory rule that seems neverending for every day endured!
There were calls last week for David Davis to reveal the 60 or so impact assessments on Brexit, that the government had compiled and was supposed to be suppressing. Davis himself was facing accusations of contempt of parliament for refusing to release them. Now he has revealed that, actually, there aren’t any. Mike over at Vox Political has put up a short piece from Martin Odoni over the Critique Archives, who makes the obvious point: the government is seriously negligent, and should go. The members of every opposition party in parliament should unite and demand their resignation. He makes the point that the referendum was conducted so that Cameron could get the Tory right on board, and that in the 2 1/2 years since it is absolutely disgraceful that the Tories simply haven’t bothered to work out how Brexit would affect Britain.
I can’t agree more. Every day brings…
