Great to see that the left are still wandering around, scratching their heads, unable to find one single way that they can defeat the evil Capitalists and convince the public that borrowing and spending is the only true path to Socialist enlightenment and record tractor production.
Sunny Hundal, that stalwart of collectivism is furious that the message just isn't getting across and stupid voters have been sold a pup. Saving money? Cutting expenditure? Hogwash. What we need is more of the same shit that got us here, he bleats
The left are in disarray. The traditional Labour voter has abandoned the party either to head to the BNP (working class nationalist/socialist, keeping them bloody wogs out) or is sat counting the pennies after the money tree dried up. A few Fabian intellectuals are all the party has left and infighting is rife. The leadership is non existent, rats are abandoning the sinking ship for Blue Labour under Cameron and the traditional messages of "equality, diversity, fairness" mean nothing to the man in the street trying to hold on to what little he has left.
Should the Scots succeed in their bid for autonomy, 51 Labour MPs will be thrown out of Westminster. Offer Wales the same and Labour will be left with a few Marxist scousers and Geordie MPs to fly the red flag in Westminster.
We need an opposition dedicated to REMOVING power from Politicians. All the Left can offer is MORE state, MORE laws, MORE distribution of your wealth to the "needy and vulnerable" (people who used to vote for Labour). In effect, we are now a one party State with mere factions within the politburo. Legislation is not rejected, it is modified for general consumption to appease all and satisfy none.
How exactly is that serving a democracy? No one gets anything except a weak, watered down tasteless gruel served from the Masters table. Do I have any answers? Nope. I pray for direct democracy, a chance to vote on the things that affect my life, a chance to be heard over Party and Lobby interests. All I see is a cabal of varying shades of blue with their fingers in their ears and their hands in my pocket, whilst the opposition run around calling the electorate fools for not voting for more of the same that got us here.
Quite frankly, the sooner I can set up the Republic of Old Holborn (pop. 1) and plant my own turnips, the better.
