Sir Kier Starmer keeps dropping in phrases about the Labour Party’s electoral credibility but what is unclear about his focus on this issue is the cost to the Labour Party’s policies and ambitions. Clearly he is modelling his attempt to regain power on those of Blair, modelling Labour’s appeal not on striking difference to the Tories but instead on the lines of similarity and fiscal responsibility. In reality such an approach makes sure of constraints on ambition. Is Starmer actually using budget constraints as an excuse for lack of ambition? Is he rejecting the idea that you actually need to spend to invest and reap rewards ? Lack of investment equals lack of ambition in this case and another missed opportunity to really change Britain for the long term good and to finally get an opportunity to reverse the harm that Thatcherism has done to Britain. By so doing He has forfeited on many policies at the heart of the core values of his Party.
If you are angry about Rail Fare rises the first thing you need to consider doing is voting out the government that brought in the unpopular privatisations in the first place. The Conservatives will never do anything to bring the Railways back in line. They continue to endorse and perpetuate this private enterprise and shareholding system and will continue to do so as long as they hold the balance of power in Britain. Even despite it’s obvious failings and poor deal for both the consumer and the country as a whole, Thatcherite principles will always prevail under Conservative administrations. Even though this current administration under Theresa May has not brought about the privatisation per se, even so her administration still endorses it and allows it to continue despite the poor deal it offers to both consumers and to the British public as a whole. Therefore you will only ever change things by working to bring about a government that supports public ownership. If you are a Tory supporter or Tory voter you have no right to complain about Rail Fare increases you are in fact endorsing this situation.

Socialism is better for Britain. Socialism offers Britain a New start and a shining new path towards prosperity. Socialism is better for Britain because it lowers the burden of taxation on tax payers. So why aren’t we embracing it.
It’s true the British Public were pick-pocketed by Margaret Thatcher and John Major. Forget being mis-sold PPI that’s nothing in comparison to the robbery and mis-selling that occurred and was directed by the Margaret Thatcher and John Major administrations. If I had enough money I would take the matter to court to expose the treachery that occurred and to prove that the privatisations were orchestrated to make a lot of money for vested interests and were not in the interests of the British citizens nor the British Economy.
