Revolution or just vote Labour?

Happy to follow you in a revolution my friends, even those who see Labour as the enemy as much as the Tories. We just need a few more million folk to join us. But if we can’t achieve that then we have to rid the Tories at any cost.

Let’s think on this, it is now to be honest obvious that most of the unprofessional, self serving and immoral Labour MP’s face deselection prior to any election. That’s why some who previously were working to their own ends now are attempting to either look better or jumping ship. The ones left will be the moral and hard working ones, I hope anyway. Labour are looking at the bigger picture. They are not stopping Brexit they are slowing it down to either get a better deal where people will not suffer and die, or if that is not achievable they will let the people chose but with true information now not just lies.
People say they are concerned about homeless ex service folk. We have seen that the Conservative Government has displayed a gross lack of support for men and women who have been effected physically, mentally and emotionally by their time within the services. People who have lost limbs, seen friends die or be maimed, blown up, and who have experienced the true horror not the Hollywood vision of combat.
Men and women who put their lives at risk because they want to protect us, yet in reality it seems have been placed in a true hell, without the proper kit, to protect oil, money and increase the power and control of the new feudal Lords, – the big Corporations.
Labour will also put in place housing, support and health including mental health services to ensure that these brave and often unsung heroes, even if they do not see themselves as heroes they joined up to keep us safe, to me that’s a hero, are given every chance to function and develop their lives upon their leaving the forces.
Talking of mental health services, do you realise how poor these have become under Austerity? Well unless you can wait several months and are about to murder someone or actually stand infront of the pschiatrist and set yourself alight they are pretty much non existent. Well in my experience. I have seen family members lose everything because there is no support. I have a brother who I love, but cannot talk to, because he is angry at me for trying to protect him and his son. I see him come closer to death everyday and there is now nothing I can do to save him. No one will help, there are no resources to help.
I Myself suffer and each day barely survive depression and anxiety. All I got from mental health was ‘keep taking the pills’. Will that be my epitaph? “he stopped taking the pills”.
Labour will reverse the lack of funding in Mental Health, in the NHS, and will increase the budgets for all the services, you, me, our family and friends rely on. Austerity was a lie to make more profit our of us. It was initially to support the banks after they gambled our money and lost, now they are all profitable again, but neither they or the companies and individuals that own them are offering to bail out the country are they?
So how will Labour fund this?
Bare in mind that unless you are in the high earner bracket Labour’s Taxation plans will not effect you. Companies like Starbucks, Costa, McDonald’s, Walmart will actually be made to pay tax and not allowed to evade or avoid it.
Labour do support a free society, and some part of that involves free movement of people, within the accepted framework, that does not mean illegal immigrants. Firstly Labour will not give free housing, your jobs or our money to illegal immigrants. If they are illegal they do not want to apply for anything, they hide, because if they are found out they are detained and usually deported. I have been in a detention centre. They are not nice at all. Think of a huge prison for families.
Refugees do get help, but that is after they have proved beyond a doubt that they have a life threatening reason not to return to their own country. Then they have no recourse to public funds, if they are housed it is usually in a private rented slum. Not the council house you are waiting for. They do not get our benefits they get vouchers for food and essentials. And not a lot of those.
EU migrants only get the same that we can expect if we go to another EU country. But you can always believe the fascists and right wingers who maybe lie to you to focus your anger away from them?
The ending of Austerity will end the war on the weak, vulnerable, ill and disabled within our country. That’s me for sure, but maybe you, or your folks, friends or children?
Labour also are going to try to hold those to account that have waged the war on us, but you can carry on believing being disabled is a good scam if you want, I mean I gave up my career to live on a pittance, to be in constant pain, to soil myself, to lose all I had, including friends and family. I really love feeling like I have no worth. Maybe it’s because we are stripped of hope and humanity that the establishment see us as such easy targets. Who defends us? You? Not if you vote Tory or even Lib Dem you don’t.
Anyway these are my thoughts. So any Che Guervara wannabes that can muster over a couple of million folk including the army, airforce and any Navy not deployed to protect the oil companies and Donald’s invasion plans, please let me know, I will happily sign up, if however all you can do is dream of change then maybe the best option is to vote Labour, end Austerity and work on sorting the rest of the shit pile out?
Your decision,
Your friend I hope.
