‘2020’ hindsight, still a bit fuzzy?

Remember if we had locked down in February, if we had not had a corrupt government giving mates contracts and paying them our money to steal from us, if we had a prime minister and opposition with a backbone, if we had mandatory masks in February, closed schools, airports, ferries, stopped unnecessary travel even if it was to drive across the UK to test our eyes, if we had a primate minister who did not hide, a government that told the truth, that followed medical guidence, that put human life before their bank accounts and status amongst their friends, Royals that had the guts to shout ‘no’ rather than saying they want to be reincarnated as a killer virus, if we had a nation of people with common sense, prepared to social distance, wear masks rather than stand clapping the nurses, doctors, paramedics, keyworkers as those very live savers died on their feet, if we had a media that itself did not publish fake news and propaganda, if we had a government that had not run down all the health and social care services in the name of Austerity whilst paying for missiles we can never use, if we had focused upon our real enemies instead of a few refugees and migrants, not hating folk because of their gender, sexuality, race, culture, ability, if we had prioritised our families and not our possessions, then maybe, just maybe so many families would not be feeling the pain of loss, the fear of loss, the anxiety of even opening their doors. If we did not live in a country that treats its sick, elderly, disabled and vulnerable as scum, a drain, expendable maybe we would have seen the warning signs and acted upon them.
Yes hind sight is always ‘2020’ , (ironic hey) but looking back it’s easy to be made to believe the mistakes were accidental, not the fault of those in charge, unavoidable.
Just to be clear, the Conservative Government, the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition, the press, and the businessmen asset stripping the UK made no ‘accidental mistakes’. Their behaviour was and is deliberate. They are culpable. They should be accountable, but unless we hold them to account now they will kill many many more.

Future of Labour

So St Sir Kier of Starm (I was going to call him Sturm but then found that Sturm means noun. : a late 18th century German literary movement characterized by works containing rousing action and high emotionalism that often deal with the individual’s revolt against society. So in contrast to Starm which means puppet of the establishment and unofficial agent of Mossad), is it seems about to face a revolt after his vile behaviour towards Jeremy Corbyn.
Someone on a post earlier in a socialist group asked what the left in Labour are going to do, the thing is Labour is supposed to be bloody ‘left’, it is supposed to be in opposition to the Conservatives – the ‘right’ (as in direction not morality).
Starmer is not a left wing politician, he and his ilk are careerist right wing (center right at best) representatives of those who wish the status quo of the poor remaining poor and the rich getting richer.
If there is no one in the gutter how can they judge how high their platforms are?
Prince Phillip let it slip a couple of years ago when he stated that he wished a virus would wipe out half the world (not a direct quote but near enough). The rich, wealthy and super rich do not value our lives. They do not respect our rights, just because they smile when stabbing you does not make their tyranny any less.
It’s easy to lie, to use fake news, propaganda, and cover your own corruption, deviance and atrocities when you own the press and media. It’s easy to convince the masses that you are on their side it seems by saying you like their music, support their football club, drive a car they love or ride a pushbike.
Politics truly now is smoke and mirrors, a deception that makes the majority believe we live in a democracy. Sadly we do not.
There will never be a time that we are permitted or allowed to have a free honest vote on anyone who is not owned by those in charge.
Starmer, Rayner, Mann, Watson, Hodge, Brown or any of the long line of sabateurs have I believe been bribed, cohersed, romanced not just by our establishment but by foreign governments and powers. They do not in any way represent the membership, the National Exec, the Party or the people.
I cannot see any simple way out of this disgusting reality that doesn’t involve us being suppressed by force or living under their rules of compliance.
It really to me is that simple.
So yes it would be good if Starmer was sacked, challenged and replaced, but we need to Learn our lesson, the powers in control will never allow an honest moral leader and cabinet run the UK.
Fractionalised parties will never gain power. The only chance of change is a ‘Labour Movement’ that sheds blood sweat and tears as our forebears did with the start of the unions and civil rights.
If you want a fair, non discriminatory and caring future of hope for our children, we are going to have to stand up and fight.

The Labour Movement is not the party

Sorry folks we cannot take back the labour party. The establishment learnt their lesson. So now we need to unite outside of it. Bring all the factionalised groups together, we are the ‘Labour Movement’ we are the true supporters of what the Labour Party was supposed to represent.
We need to see it as a football team. When it started out it was represented by players from the local communities, it’s supporters were local to the team. But the league got bought out by big business, and now the players do not represent the towns, cities or communities, the players don’t play for passion they play for money, the supporters are mainly those who are only about who wins the league, who have the best kits and no longer about the people who supported them in the beginning.
This cannot carry on. Politicians need to be passionate about the people they represent. The whole point of an MP should be to represent their communities and. Protect and promote the people within them.
This is now generally lost within the Labour Party. Now it’s about furthering careers, awards, shares and directorships. It about the rewards they can squeeze out of companies, of oligarchs and even foreign governments.
We need to stop this type of politics right now.
We on the left generally believe in the same things, in people, in communities, in morality, in ethics. We strave to be antidiscrimiatory and to stand against hate, bigotry and greed.
We as socialists do not accept cruelty, expansionism, profiteering nor corruption.
It’s that simple.
We can no longer allow the right wing, the capitalists, the establishment, corporations and the super rich to undermine, control or own us. We are not chaff, we are not expendable and each one of us needs to be cherished and supported by society not villified and treated with cruelty and disdain.
So our choices now truly are unite and fight, or divide and fail. Sadly for the vulnerable, the ill, the disabled it now is a fight to the death. The establishment already in countless ways have demonstrated their intent to make life so difficult for these folk to continue, to survive never mind have any chance at a happy life where needs are met and they feel nurtured and cared for.
We now make the decisions or sadly for some we die.
We are Labour, it’s the Labour Party who no longer are.
