Subject: BS: Welcome to Old Labour?

I am gobsmacked bythe petty opportunism that has broken out in the Labour Party.

Can the idiot ministers (well at least we knew that that bit was true) resigning, and the various political assassins not see that as the Labour Party becomes poised to reap the propaganda coup of Brown's and Darling's anti-recession strategies actually bearing fruit (so demonstrating that the conservative opposition to them would have caused a long hard and deep recession in truth - as anyone who looked at the 1920s and 30s could have foretold) it is NOT the time to ditch the founder of those strategies?

There is a sad risk that this self-interested infighting will hand the ruling of this country back to the Old Etonians, the self-serving sons of bitches with NO idea of the sufferings their get-rich-quick "ideals" cause.

The thing is the idiots don't get it at all. If they think they can suddenly become popular by ditching their leader, they truly are delusional, and deserve to get a thorough kicking. As Richard so rightly says, there are things in place that, if they aren't carried through, will leave us even worse off, which of course won't hurt our masters one iota. It's patently obvious that they will tinker around the edges, and let us suffer while 'Rome burns'. Thet can't even see how history will repeat itself, and still they continue. What an utterly squalid pack they really are.

Oh, Lizzie, please don't find a new hero. Obama is doing OK (and his work on the recession is very parallel to Brown's) but please please keep a fairly even keel. And no, I disagree that "ALL have NO idea of the sufferings their get-rich-quick "ideals" cause". Many in the Labour movement have come from places where they will have had no option but to see the evils of capitalism, and some have eschewed "get-rich-quick "ideals" ".

You may better argue that all politicians have had their snouts in the trough, but first that is something else and second there are the occasional examples who have not. It is the bloody conservatives who have taught us that greed is good and most of them have never met a poor person in their lives.

My despair of the Labour party is that it seems to be going back to its self-fractionating old self. B Liar and his "New Labour" did huge harm, but at least they created an electable monolith, that no matter how bad was better than the Old Etonian party.

Voting For Change

Ahead of the European Election on Thursday, Leader of the Ulster Unionist Party Sir Reg Empey and Leader of the Conservative Party David Cameron have issued the following joint statement.

"Change is needed across the United Kingdom.

Gordon Brown's Government has taken the UK to the brink of bankruptcy, and now we have a Parliament that has lost the trust of the people.

Public confidence in our institutions and in our politicians is at rock bottom.

David Cameron said last week that "big change and a new politics is exactly what people can expect from a new Conservative government…with people in control of the things that matter to them, a country where the political system is open and trustworthy and where power is distributed from the political elite to the man and woman in the street."

We want the people of Northern Ireland to be part of this process of change and new politics. As citizens of the United Kingdom they should have the same political and Parliamentary standards as their fellow citizens in England, Scotland and Wales.

The Ulster Unionist Party and Conservative Party, standing together as 'Conservatives and Unionists,' have already taken the first important step towards change and new politics. We have jointly endorsed Jim Nicholson as our candidate for the European Parliament.
[imo]there will be little progress re peaceful UNIFICATION OF Ireland,if people vote Conservative.

NI has it's own assembly. I'm not going to base my voting on what is happening in another country. I'm voting for a representative for me and my locality and don't think by choice should be limited. It's bad enough that we're denied an English assembly and that MPs for Scottish and Welsh seats are allowed to vote on matters that only affect England.

The problem is Lizzie, we will have a Government, vote or no vote. How can anybody complain if they haven't bothered to vote. Somebody quite rightly said that no vote could well be a vote for the BNP, you see that a vote would cancel the other out. And as Richard has also rightly pointed out they are not all self serving crooks. As it happens my MP is Anne Widdecombe. I've never voted for her, but she's been one hell of a good MP for us and she certainly hasn't had her snout in the trough. She's made a good living from her writing though, and that I don't begrudge her.

PR - I am not gong to debate that issue her eas it is off-topic.

Government is about setting priorities. These prioties could be around social justice and intervention (the reason why we have the NHS and compulsory education) or it could be around individual responsiblity (laissez faire).

But for any government to be able to carry out its manifesto it has to be elected, and as things stand that is in the hands of a handful of marginal constituencies in middle England, who may cast thier votes for selfish reasons as opposed to what is best for society as a whole.

This the paradox - being principled, without power, or compromising principle to gain power. This will always favour the Tories who put individualism before social responsibility.

So, what can Labour do? One way is to sell out, another and much harder is to change attitudes. I think when we had the labour landslide Blair missed the opportunity to push for an attitudinal change and gone a lot more to the left.

"But for any government to be able to carry out its manifesto it has to be elected"

And when Labour swept to power in 1997 it did so on the basis of a manifesto commitment to have a referendum on electoral reform:

"We are committed to a referendum on the voting system for the House of Commons. An independent commission on voting systems will be appointed early to recommend a proportional alternative to the first-past-the-post system." From 1997 Labour Party Manifesto.

The"independent commission on voting systems" was apponted, and made recommendations - but the promised referendum was never held. But that manifesto made no mention of when it should be held, and there has been no repudiation in subsequent manifestos of the pledge to hold it.

This means that the promise to hold that referendum still stands - and if it were carried out, it would dramatically change the situation. It could save us from the unpleasant possibility of living under a Tory government, elected by a minority of the voters, for decades to come. For the rest of our lives for many of us.

Now where was it that Tony Blair was educated?

Ah yes!......The following monuments to socialist state education:- Durham Choristers School, Fettes College, Edinburgh; St John's College, Oxford

Harriet Harman.....St Paul's Girls school (an independent school) and York University

Alastair Darling.....Kirkaldy, The private Loretto School, Musselburgh, and Aberdeen University

Ed Balls......Nottingham High School (a fee paying public school), Keble College Oxford, and Harvard

That's just the ones I could be bothered to sort out. Very socialist lot.

I'm also sure that I could trawl the Tory party and find plenty of Grammar, and Comprehensive School pupils.

By the same token you could as easily reverse the process.

Which proves WHAT?.......Well nothing really, except how blinkered and one sided your view of people in the Tory Party has become.

Tory or Labour, they have all had a similar degree of education, and have achieved very similar prominence in public life.

If you believe that Eton still confers instant success, then you are living half a century in the past.

I don't see socialists as a bunch of ragged half starved serfs in clogs and flat caps, because I've moved on somewhat from the prejudices of the 1930s depression days.

I am a Tory who has worked damn hard for forty seven years, and done just about every dirty job in the book. I've come out the other end with NOTHING, largely thanks to Gordon Brown's theft of five billion pounds from our pension funds, so if you expect me to vote labour...well, you get the picture.

There are very large numbers of Tories who didn't get the silver spoon at birth, didn't go to Eton, Harrow, or Oxford University, and they still vote Tory. That should tell you something you didn't know about the Tories.....Like they may not be as bad as you would, in your red eyed hatred, wish them to be.

Labour has done me NO favours, but I don't slag off the party or its voters, just the one or two incompetents who have screwed this country into the ground in the last twelve years. I think you know who.

You're right Don, it was the 'Entertainment' part of the Licensing Act 2003 that really got my goat. I remember saying at the time 'How can a Labour Government do this to us'? But, of course, the last thing that the Blairites and Brownites were and are is Labour. That's why I've consistently voted for the Lib/Dems who have, I believe, a far more Socialist and caring agenda. I'll not vote for the Tories, as they seem now to be 'New Labour' in a different suit.
