It is quite obvious that Theresa May and the Tories are planning to scrap their 2015 election pledges not to raise taxation. Constrained now by awkward and awful Brexit Negotations by the arrogant Theresa May, a hard and austere Brexit is looming for Britain. To cover up these mistakes the people of Britain will have to pay for the Tories bungling through higher taxation and higher inflation. This is the real reason for Theresa May hurrying through another General Election in 2017.
Jeremy Corbyn needs to seize upon this weakness and exploit it for all it’s worth and get the Tories to admit that taxation will rise if they take office again in 2017.
Well the answer to this lies in 2 camps. The main reason is that Therese May’s negotiations with the European Union are certainly not going well. In fact she is simply annoying our European Neighbours with her arrogance that she will win. Facts are that she really holds no persuasive bargaining power in these negotiations and the outcome will always be what it has been from the start that Britain faces a very tough and unprofitable Brexit. For May the further these negotiations go then the more likely that the outcome of these negotiations will not be positive for Britain or for her personally. Therefore before this happens and people of Britain begin to see behind the facade and start to blame the Conservatives for Britain’s Economic Demise, May simply wants to buy more time for herself and her Conservative Party in government by calling an early General Election in 2017. Quite simply by ruining the Economy whilst in Government would not look good for the Tories in the run up to another Election so she is hoping that within 5 years she can salvage something that could save her and her Party. Added to this is the fact that because of Brexit and the uncertainties regarding our Economy and the strength of the Pound she is further hampered by the Tories previous Election Pledges under Cameron not to raise taxation. Because of Brexit and to shore up the Economy she has calculated that this will be a further hindrance so she desperately needs to re-adjust this situation. When recently questioned about tax rises she was vague and non-committal. She well knows that she will be seeking to raise taxation. So in the end we will be all worse off well at least those that can least afford a tax rise namely the working classes. In this way Theresa May is being very devious and attempting to use the General Election in 2017 to increase taxation by stealth. This is to shore up her ineptness to steer us out of the European Union without bankrupting the country and ruining the Economy. She knows that there is a risk of this so she is seeking a mandate for us all to foot the bill for her and her Parties ineptitude.
Lastly May sees this as an opportunity to eliminate the threat from Jeremy Corbyn before he has really had a chance to develop his position in the Labour Party. Being a decent man with a caring attitude and high moral fibre she does see him as a threat despite what she has said in public. So she is spearheading a smear campaign against him with dirty political tactics. In fact she is rather despicable and not a very nice lady herself despite the public image that she attempting to cultivate ( a public makeover in the style of Margaret Thatcher). Corbyn is a good speaker and is a match for her and her arrogance in the House of Commons and May knows that he represents a threat. She is hoping that a General Election defeat will result in the Labour Party seeking to oust him as Leader in favour of another further plunging the Labour Party into turmoil.
Well they have finally admitted it now there is not going to be any Christmas Cheer coming your way from Theresa May and her Conservative Party Government. They have finally been forced to release their unpleasant news in the Budget of last week. This is a gloomy forecast indeed and is in stark contrast to Theresa May‘s previous promise to be a Party for people and working people especially. There is no good news or hope to be taken from the November 2016 Budget and the financial forecasts: just more Jams (just about managing) and no Creams at all for the majority of people. Then add on to all this the stupidity of pressing ahead with Brexit and the resulting higher inflation and devaluing of people’s wages and living standards and you have more and more ‘jams'( Just About Managing). So there is no good news ahead for those that are presently ‘jams’ ( just about managing ) and those that are not currently ‘jams’ the bad news is that with a hard Brexit looming ahead you soon will be. The only sense that I can make of it all is that Theresa May in reality wants a low wage, high inflation and high unemployment economy the same as her cherished predecessor ‘Margaret Thatcher‘ , who is after all her idol and the politician she most aspires to resemble. This similar set of circumstances gave Margerat Thatcher (not a misspelling I assure you) the opportunity to punish the working classes and divide them to the point from which they are still yet to recover and come to their senses. Due to a set of very similar economic circumstances she was able to drive down wages, erode workers rights, divide traditional loyalties and worst of all she made snobs of the working class and all because of a high inflation, high unemployment economy which was favourable to her extreme policies. This was the Thatcherite Utopia to which Theresa May now also aspires to and this is why she is so keen to be pressing ahead with Brexit despite the gloomy economic forecasts. Theresa May and her Conservative Government cannot and should not be trusted as she is not acting in the interests of Great Britain or the UK Economy.
Who the hell does Theresa May believe she is suggesting that she is championing the working classes in today’s Britain. It just goes to show how out of touch she is and her words are just insulting to working people. This is Theresa May’s attempt to brainwash the working class into believing that the Conservative Party led by her represent the interests of the working classes. It is patronizing, insulting and in bad taste. There are people in Britain who already work hard: damn hard in fact but who get virtually nothing for their endeavours. The Minimum Wage is just a joke and some in Britain are working 60+ hours a week just to scratch a living. Theresa May is now attempting to re-write the Conservative Party History by claiming it champions the working classes where in actual fact history tells us that the Conservatives have traditionally eroded workers rights over the years and took away power from the unions. You have to remember that it is only European Law that is defending the last battalions of Workers Rights and now consider that the Tories are the ones that will be taking us out of Europe. The right wing of the Tory Party have been trying to erode these Workers Rights for years and now that the right wing of the Tories are in total control this should surely be sending out some very strong Warning Signals to the Workers and Working People in the UK. If Not then Why Not?

Even from beyond the grave ‘the Iron Lady’ still retains her grip on British politics. Nothing much has changed: well nothing radical in politics since the days of Margaret Thatcher and Britain seems either unwilling or unable to move on from the grip of Thatcher’s snatch and grab politics. Nothing much has changed even despite the interim Labour Government that ended her reign. Despite this her legacy lives on which was the end of socialism in Britain. This position was aided and abetted somewhat by the weak, poor excuse for a Labour Government of Blair/ Brown whose government actually changed very little because it had sold out on the Labour’s Party’s principles well before it actually got elected.
So why has the face of British Politics changed so little since the reign of Margaret Thatcher and in whose interests is this? Why do I get the feeling that she is still in control even from her grave? To my mind Margaret Thatcher and Adolf Hitler have got a lot in common. They have been the most divisive and right wing politicians in Europe of the last century but there the similarities end because The German Nation was quick to understand that after defeat in the War and the demise of Adolf Hitler it realised that it needed a new set of guiding values, principles and legislation. The old Germany of Hitler did not persist under new subsequent regimes. Germany had to re-invent itself and put right the wrong doing of those times and move forward. Conversely so for the U.K where the policies of a much despised premier have persisted outside her time in office through; a change in Tory Prime Minister, throughout a so called Opposition Government in office and well into the David Cameron years. In fact with Theresa May we can virtually guarantee that we basically get more of the same Thatcherite Policies. So what is it about our nation that makes us such suckers for this kind of grotesque punishment. Why can’t we learn harsh lessons from the past and move on in the same way the German’s did revoking the legislation that was immoral, covetous, harmful and divisive.
