Why I am glad Jeremy Corbyn was elected
By Dark Politricks
As you should know from previous articles I paid my £3 and voted for Jeremy Corbyn to become the newly elected Labour leader.
With nearly 60% of the vote in the first round, he won a massive mandate across all sections of voters to become the new leader of the previously tory lite Labour party.
He won the majority of Labour members votes, the majority of trade union votes (who if anyone forgets – did create the party they still bankroll), and the majority of the almost quarter of a million of people like me who signed up as an affiliate to vote for the leader and deputy leader.
So as the right-wing papers attack him today, with Tories calling him the most dangerous man in Britain and with the Tory Defence minister saying he will put our national defence at risk, I want to remind you why I voted for him.
I want a real choice in British Elections.
With the Liberal Democrats being wiped out at the last election and the Blairite years bringing Labour so far to the centre that they became more right-wing than the Tories at some stages, this is the only way to give the electorate a real choice at the next election.
A real choice between the politics of inclusion, peace and help for all to get on in life and those that mean socialism for the rich, austerity for the poor along with constant war and attacks on civil liberties.
Please remember the Tories have NOT resolved our massive national debt problems through their punishment to the poorest and neediest in society. Instead they have grown our debt more than Labour ever did, always remember this when George Osborne carps on about reducing the deficit. The deficit can reduce at the same time as the national debt growing – read up on the difference if you don’t know it.
I also don’t want our money wasted on unnecessary wars that have caused this mass influx of immigrants, refugees and ISIS sleeper cells into the EU. There have already been reports of thousands of Syrian passports for sale in Turkey so that terrorists can get straight into the EU and arrests have already been made of ISIS suspects. This is harming the chances of real refugees fleeing from the crisis we helped create from gaining safety in the EU.
Remember we caused this mess by going to war in Libya, Iraq, and Syria when we didn’t need to. It cost this country billions if not trillions, and firing £400k Tomahawk missiles at Afghan mud huts just causes more people to hate us and creates terrorists for the future. Even our own top Army brass believe this to be true. It’s the Chicken Hawks in Washington and Westminster, who love sending other peoples kids into war, that think wasting tax payers money on creating new bogeymen to threaten our civil liberties with is a good idea.
All these wars have made us less safe at home and Jeremy understands this despite establishment opinions.
Whether the US, NATO, MI6, the CIA and the UK establishment will allow a Labour leader to become Prime Minister is another matter.
If I was Jeremy I would be seriously considering employing body doubles like Saddam Hussein did just in case he is found dead in an apparent suicide. Three shots to the head of course…..
Also if we can print money at 0% interest rates to keep the banks afloat why can we not print it to invest in the economy by building infrastructure, badly needed housing to keep the hugely inflated private rental prices down, new train lines and other job creation activities?
So whilst the right-wing papers are printing headlines like the following ones I have listed today, I would just like to wish Jeremy well, and I am glad both my votes managed to get he and Tom Watson elected yesterday.
- Is that your new shadow cabinet, Jeremy? New Labour leader Corbyn sends his deputy Tom Watson to Andrew Marr show while he poses with girls in a park after eleven frontbenchers quit.
- Corbyn’s union backers plan first general strike for 90 years and urge support for law breakers.
- George is the real winner of the Labour contest – and he’s got his eye on Liz Kendall
- Enemies of Britain… but friends of Corbyn: How Corbyn appears to hate this country, by Stephen Pollard, editor of the Jewish Chronicle.
- Labour rocked as shock poll says party will lose next TWO elections as MPs plot to oust Jeremy Corbyn after Left-winger’s sensational victory.
- Corbyn is an absurd vessel for the hopes of the disaffected and takes Labour another step closer to the margins of British politics, argues ex-Home Secretary Charles Clarke.
- Now wait for Labour’s thugs to march again: From a moderniser who spent the 1980s battling hard left bruisers, David Blunkett warns the party could be out of power for a generation.
The Scum – Sorry Sun
- New Labour leader sings The Red Flag with supporters at victory knees-up, while exodus of party heavyweights prompts fears of party split.
- Corbyn will take us back to the 70s David Blunkett fears the Far Left will seize control of the Labour Party.
- The vest is yest to come if you win if you win top like Jez. New Labour Corbyn loves to a wear a white singlet and you too can dress just like the Marxist firebrand by taking part in our great competition.
- SNP ‘could form alliance’ with Corbyn’s Labour.
- Split emerges as deputy opposes new leader’s policies.
- Corbyn to pick shadow cabinet amid party mutiny.
- Cameron: Labour is a threat to our national security.
And just remember whilst Jeremy Corbyn was being attacked for publicly talking to Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams, during the times he still had to have his voice edited out and re-spoken on British TV, the Tories were doing it on the quiet through their own backdoor channels.
All wars are finally ended by talking and compromise unless one side is totally defeated and Jeremy knows that, the problem is the military industrial complex won’t make money without these endless wars. This is why we haven’t had the peace dividend we were supposed to get when Communism was defeated in the USSR and Eastern Europe.
We have seen no real end to the wars we have caused lately. The wars we thought we won have carried on through proxies or ended up as civil wars from Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya to the current mess in Syria which will blow up in Europe’s faces, quite literally I feel.
Unless we don’t stop demonising Russia, Syria and Iran and stop Turkey from using it as an excuse to bomb their PPK, Kurdish enemies, who are all actually fighting ISIS on the ground. We will see more crackdowns on civil liberties, a worse refugee crisis and more terrorist attacks.
Only an end to the axis of war that the current Tory and hopefully OLD Tory lite Labour governments of recent years belonged to, will end the war on terror.
Only a person who can see that talking rather than bombing solves problems will solve this crisis we are all facing due to US/UK/French aggression around the world. Jeremy could be that person.
For too long we have let the establishment sway our minds and votes through fear of the unknown. Labour was taken away from their founders, the working classes when Tony Blair got elected by taking it to the centre and appealing to middle England and Tory supporters.
Whilst New Labour did some good things at first and managed the economy well in the early years, they also took us into 4 wars, let the Banksters and markets run free, created the most surveilled state in the western world (apart from maybe the USA now), repealed many laws that gave us the right to protest, congress and stay silent without question in police interview, and used anti-terrorism laws for non-terrorist activities such as freezing Icelands money when they had their own banking crisis. The Icelandic people have never forgiven Gordon Brown for labelling them terrorists and I know from my recent trip there just how much they hate Gordon Brown for this abuse of the law.
Finally New Labour allowed the banksters to break the banks and then used taxpayer money to bail them out. Not one banker was jailed for the numerous crimes of fraud that went on during these years.
They also helped create massive debt through their expansion of PFI (Private Finance Initiative) schemes that may have seen many schools and hospitals built but will cost the country dearly in payments for decades to come unless stopped. Some estimates put the cost as high as £300 billion.
New Labour may have seemed a good idea at the time but they ended up no better than the Tories.
This is why so many disaffected young people were so energised by Corby’s campaign. An unlikely hero for the young you may think but then they are the biggest sufferers of Labour and then the Tories recent political choices and austerity cuts.
Labour introduced tuition fees and the coalition government under the duplicitous Nick Clegg and David Cameron decided to increase them.
The new Tory government has decided to remove any state help for the young unemployed even when there are no jobs on offer and they have put the national debt on their shoulders to pay over future years despite George Cameron’s claims to do otherwise. It is no wonder they saw Jeremy’s campaign as a breath of fresh air and voted for him en mass.
So whilst the right-wing are basically “taking the piss”, and denouncing the new Labour leader as a far left, danger to society and national security just think about who you are listening to and what they have done to resolve those matters rather than make them worse.
Therefore I urge you to think carefully at the next election and not take the words of papers owned by neo-cons, tax avoiders, corporate criminals and establishment mouthpieces who benefit from the status quo as fact and do your own thinking before casting a vote.
Whether you like Corybn’s election or not and as long as the Blairites don’t become backbench snipers and backstabbers to prevent a successful leadership we could have a proper choice for once in the 2020 general election.
Hopefully it will be one between a party who will look after the interests of the young, the poor, the middle classes and create jobs, build houses and prevent fruitless wars and one that looks after the interests of all those who benefit from war, high rental prices and tax avoidance.
The choice is yours – but at least we now have a real one.
Please read in his own words what he wants for Britain.
