Oh yeah, I almost forgot.
LITERAL FASCISM HAS TRIUMPHED IN ENGLAND!
These spoiled brats aren’t the working class. They are chanting “Antifascista” and “refugees are welcome here” and “Tory scum off our streets” and are waving the EU flag.
George Galloway is right.
“It was Brexit of course – only the foolhardy deny their own electorate on such a matter, and so brazenly and for so long – but not only Brexit. In former premier Harold MacMillan’s words “it’s never one damned thing, it’s one damned thing after another.”
Labour’s defiance of its own supporters behind its ‘red-wall’ – seats in some cases it had held for a hundred years, seemed to put the tin-hat on things for the British industrial and post industrial heartlands. For American readers, imagine Michigan, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
And that’s after many years of amused bemused tolerance of an increasingly metropolitan liberal Labour Party – which regularly parachuted in such liberals in Labour livery into what were until now safe Labour seats. So, for example, that well known coal-miner Tony Blair dropped in for a while as the MP for the mining town of Sedgefield with his fancy London Barrister ways…
If you live beyond the ‘red wall’ you may just wonder why almost ALL of the top leaders of a party depending on Northern voters had virtually adjoining constituencies in North London.
London left-wing politics should be imagined as a hot-house where only the most exotic political flowers bloom. Nice for a visit but with not much in common with the colder climate to which you are returning home.
I have long proselytized for the view, confirmed amply in the election, that for decades Labour has been conducting a kind of culture war against its own voting base. Instead of country and patriotism the party worshipped the supra-nationalism of the EU. More comfortable with the flag of Bolivia or Venezuela than with their own country’s flag. More interested in the human rights of the criminal than with their victims. Endlessly looking for small minority blocs to patronize, careless that over-identification with one bloc may come at the price of alienation from another, much larger. …”
Hopefully, this is the ass kicking and wake up call Labour needed to move beyond the politics of the insane liberals on display below. I tend to doubt it though.
Note: This is what the day after the 2020 election is likely to look like here.
