I needed a good laugh this morning.
I was feeling really bad yesterday and was too sick to even crawl of the bed.
In his speech on Labour’s collapse this morning, Tony Blair didn’t once mention immigration, neoliberalism, political correctness or multiculturalism. He briefly mentioned Iraq, but didn’t dwell on the subject for obvious reasons. Instead, he blamed it all on Jeremy Corbyn and the Far Left, as if it was Corbyn who had created all the resentments that led to Brexit in the first place. This was the fourth general election that Labour has lost to the Conservatives. The demise of the Labour Party had more to do with what it became under Blair and the consequences playing out over the past 20 years than what it ever so briefly was under Corbyn.
The last thing the Labour Party needs to do now is to listen to the advice of this neoliberal centrist globalist who plunged Britain into Iraq, flung open the borders, nurtured the toxic political correctness and multiculturalism which gave us the present generation of middle class woke scolds and whose policies deindustrialized the old Labour heartlands. Here in the United States, it was his counterpart Bill Clinton who deregulated finance and who brought China into the WTO and who celebrated America becoming a majority non-White country. In the process, Bill Clinton lost the Upper South to the GOP and Hillary Clinton lost the Rust Belt to Trump.
The working class in both countries is and always has been socially conservative and economically populist. The toxic social liberalism of urban middle class professionals and students in the universities killed the Labour Party. The Labour Party needs to go back to its roots instead of having Jeremy Corbyn making videos about his pronouns.
