Kier Starmer is a chameleon without any convictions. He throws away any pretences of being a real Labour Party Leader by singing the praises of Margaret Thatcher. Did we need any more proof now that this man is a traitor to the Labour Party? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-67604830
Starmer has dropped every pledge that he made before he became the Labour Party leader
Kier Starmer is the man that cannot be trusted. He has dropped every pledge that he ever made to become the Leader of the Labour Party. STARMER’S ATTITUDE IS SIMPLY SELF SERVING IN THE SAME WAY THAT BORIS JOHNSON’S, AND TONY BLAIR’S WERE. SPURRED ON BY THEIR OWN VANITY TO ACTUALLY BECOME THE PRIME MINISTER AT ANY COST. Starmer will say and do anything to become Prime Minsister. He is a shapeshifter, a chameleon who wants to say the right thing at the right time to serve his own purposes and then he will cast them off again soon after just as easily. He lacks conviction and can quickly disassociate himself from thise committments that he made. Starmer is a slippery politician who basically cannot be trusted because he is motivated solely by self promotion. At first I found this difficult to see and accept but now it is apparent. It’s clear that Kier Starmer has no real convictions left because he has ditched them all along the way after being of use to him. in order to get the position of Labour Party Leader he appeased the left with pledges and assurrances that he would carry forward the key socialist principles of the Labour Movement resurrected by Jeremy Corbyn, but he has since ditched all these pledges and seems to have gravitated towards the resurrection of Blair’s ‘New Labour’ by bringing back into the cabinet many of Tony Blair’s old allies. Now not even content to pushing the Labour Movement back towards the bad old days of Blairism he wants to even appeal to the followers of Margaret Thatcher suggesting that she had some great qualities.
So how far has Labour actually swung to the right when it’s Leader is praising the work of Margaret Thatcher?

Take one thing away from the latest Labour Party Conference and that is Kier Starmer is basing his election Manifesto on wishful thinking. Labour has dropped all pretences of renationalising the key industries and has instead turned it’s favours towards businesses and market forces. Again distancing itself from it’s key Labour Values of re-nationalisation it moves closer and closer to the policies and ambitions of Tony Blair. In fact Starmer actually celebrated Blair in his speech. So now we have a Labour Party again bereft of real ambition and purpose, which is prepared to easily throw away or disregard key Labour Party Values.
Starmer had no real need to go to these lengths to moderate the Party or re-assign Blairite values because the Tories, and to some extent the SNP, have been handing Labour a victory at the next General Election on a plate. Starmer is a very nervous and over cautious leader who is influenced too much by public opinion and thiz has rubbed off on the Labour Party as a whole. There was never any need to deviate again from core Labour party values that Corbyn had re-established and certainly no need for self introspection and self-loathing that occurred after the last General Election defeat. The last Election was lost on a single issue of who was going to get rid of Brexit quickest and put the whole thing to bed. Nobody really looked at policies beyond that. It was a single issue election with no-one taking any interest in who had the best policies. Then we come to the next election which the Tories are simply gifting to Labour. Starmer is too nervous and too cautious but also has a profound vanity and desire to be a Prime Minister with or without values and purpose. He has turned the Labour Party into a gibbering wreck without a moral compass. He is dropping Labour Party Values and key policies continually and has been withholding ideas of it’s direction from the Party Membership. He is deliberately vague in order to disguise his true purpose. He has been harbouring a Blairist attitude and steering the Party towards a Blairist destination all along. He has withheld his true intentions from the Party membership whilst seeking to cash in on the increased level of support for key Labour Party Values that Corbyn had brought back to the Party. Do not forget that he was supportive of Corbyn’s policies whilst acting as Shadow Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union.
Starmer’s vision of Labour in government is bereft of any ambitions as he aligns the Party with Tony Blair again

Tory policies have caused Britain to run aground. Thatcherite policies and values have now backed Britain into a cul-de-sac. There is no route forward any longer and therefore no reason to cling to the values of Thatcherism. Britain has no income and longer is is also bankrupt of ideas. Now the only course of action available to the Tories is to raise levels of government income from taxation. This was inevitable as a result of privatisation of Britain’s assets. Recent Tory governments have relied upon borrowing as a way of shoring up the facade that everything was under control. Then along came Liz Truss who yore down the mirrors to reveal the true horror show that the Tories had created. Truss even managed to make matters worse. No level of Tinkering about by Jeremy Hunt will make matters better. He is about to reveal a new level of taxation and unleash that on the British Public. Taxes taxes and more taxes. As if the public weren’t already struggling with higher interests rates and mortgage repayments. As if they weren’t already struggling with paying the price Hikes in energy costs and the subsequent inflationary prices. It seems that at every new announcement or misguided policy or budget that the Tories impose on us, that matters actually get worse and worse.
It comes as no surprise that the Tories are viewing tax rises as their only option
It comes as no surprise that the Tories are raising taxation, after all it’s their only option. The Tories have run out of ideas. Thatcherism has run it’s course until it’s run out of steam. Trickle down economics is mis-trusted. Thatcherism was evaporation economics. However Thatcherite values still prevailed in the values of the Conservative Party. Thatcherism is still evident everywhere in Britain even after 40 years. The Railways, Electricity, Gas and Water still remain in private sector. This is due in part to Blair who led the country and the Labour Party up the garden path. Blair remains a traitor to the Labour Party. An experiment in middle of the road politics that spawned a monster. Blair’s Labour Party did nothing to reverse the excesses of Thatcher and Major. By doing nothing it seemed to endorse them. Blair’s legacy was complete failure and is a period best forgotten by the Labour Party.
Britain needs socialism now to turn round our economy and open up new avenues to prosperity
Reverse Thatcher’s privatisations sign these petitions now.
What should the Labour Party do now following election defeat and a change in leadership? Quite simply the Labour Party needs to remain calm and stop itself from having inner doubts. It needs to avoid self doubt and sweeping changes to it’s policies. The Labour Party should be reminding itself that the last General Election was fought and won on a single issue, that of Brexit. The last election was not an election about policies or real politics: it was simply fought as a right wing agenda of getting Brexit done and past the winning post, which had been stalling for many months under the governance of the Tories. This single agenda election polarised the electorate or basically turned off voters and put them in a state of apathy.
With election defeat it has unquestionably left the many withbthe feeling about ‘ what should the Labour Party do to be more electable and bring back voters?’. In the last General Election the Labour Party was unable to define a credible policy about Brexit and failed to get voters on board to the idea of having further ballots. So sick of the idea that Brexit should take up any more time, ideas of perhaps putting any further debate back to voters was a turn off for most voters who simply wanted a conclusion and end to debate. There was little scrutiny of any other policies going on in this election: so Labour can rest assured it didn’t loose the election because of it’s policies.

The Conservative Party Conference has left them looking embarrassingly weak. Seeming to lack any imagination, unity and credibility they are struggling to convince both themselves and the public they represent a credible government working for the benefit of Great Britain. The obvious truth of the matter is that they don’t. They claim to be championing the working people: they don’t. This is old rhetoric that we heard when the Prime Minister, Theresa May, took over from David Cameron after he ran away unceremoniously embarrassed by his huge political gamble that had exploded in his face.
So we have heard it all before and the recent General Election 2017 showed that the public will not swallow it either. So the Conservative Party Conference sees them trying to win the same argument in which they have already been embarrassingly defeated. What this Conference has shown is that the Conservatives are unimaginative with no real vision for the future of Great Britain. They are unwilling to tackle head on the main issues which effect the British Public namely: huge profiteering of the utility providers, high rail fares, welfare, the NHS, and where the British Economy will be post Brexit. These are the issues to which the British Public want real change and real answers and these are the areas where there is high public dissatisfaction. Instead the Conservatives remain totally uninspiring, seemingly attempting to convince us they they represent the interests of working people and the working classes whilst doing very little to deserve this high accolade that they have foisted upon themselves. Well the public will not be deceived and duped so easily especially by a political party that cannot even manage their own conference properly. No the Conservative Party Conference 2017 has shown us that they are not united – they are divided and that Theresa May is not strong enough to cope with the dissidence within her own Party and in particular she is unwilling and unable to discipline it’s loose cannon:Boris Johnson. But what this week has shown most of all is that they are totally terrified of Jeremy Corbyn and of Socialism in particular. Reference the speech of the Chancellor of Exchequer- Phillip Hammond on 03/10/17. This speech shows how much the Tories are fearfulness of socialism and fairness for Great Britain. They have little answer to it other than to pretend that they themselves represent fairness and prosperity but in truth they do not. So fearful are the Conservatives and this is indicated by the amount of time and reference he gave to attacking Jeremy Corbyn and his policies on a very personal level. By default this showed a great fear for what Mr Corbyn represents to his followers and in the long run it only served to give Mr Corbyn even more kudos.

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.

I am responding here to statements made by Alan Johnson in an article to Politics Home where he suggests that the Labour Party is dead and finished and where he lays the blame squarely at the feet of Jeremy Corbyn. This is really just sour grapes from a defeated right wing moderate as he struggles to adapt to the much needed change happening within the Labour Party and is probably more about his own line of personal questioning and doubts about whether there is actually a place for him in the Labour Party of the future.
Firstly who does Alan Johnson think he is pontificating on such matters. Johnson, himself now a discredited politician, is a part of the unfortunate legacy of the now dying Labour Party. He is right to say that the Labour Party is dead which it most probably is but guess what: far from being Mr Corbyn’s fault the death of the Labour Party is actually because of people like Alan Johnson and Tony Blair who have killed the Labour Party. The autopsy is now on-going but it will surely be found to be the case that the death of the Labour Party was already a sealed fait accompli as soon as traitors like you and Tony Blair were able to meddle with its Constitution. Mr Corbyn now only presides over the dying corpse of the Labour Party perhaps in a vain attempt to bring back life to the already departed.
