“[Rachel] Reeves said: “What I want to see is people who are already in Britain being trained up for the jobs that are available in the economy… there are many people who are not in work who with the right support, could get into work.
She threw her weight behind plans to devolve back to work support to town halls, with localised drives to get people off benefits and back into work as part of a focus on “incentivising people“.
There is no real difference between the drivel spewed out by Labour Friends of Israel MP Rachel Reeves and that emitted by Conservative Friends of Israel MP Iain “Dunce” Duncan Smith over the past 13+ years.
“Localized drives” to harass the unemployed and/or disabled, and to take away the tiny incomes (from the State) that they need? Sounds as if any people without high income or capital voting Labour-label will be turkeys voting for Christmas…
“German investigators are pursuing leads which could implicate Ukraine in carrying out the mysterious Nord Stream pipeline blasts last September, according to a new report.”
Take away Zelensky’s ricebowl. Why start a world war for a pack of corrupt Jews in Kiev?
Always remember “the men behind the wire”…
Idiots such as “Boris”, Liz Truss, and now the Indian money-juggler, Sunak, have been busy painting a big bullseye onto the UK…
Look at Ukraine under Zelensky’s regime— no economy left, except for harvesting grain and potato, pensions and State employees only getting paid because the West, mainly USA, is squeezing its own taxpayers for this garbage. “Ukraine” only has arms and ammunition because NATO states and others are funnelling them to Kiev free of charge. The Zelensky regime has shot or arrested opponents and dissidents, closed down trade unions and critical newspapers. As for ordinary justice, young girls suspected of shoplifting get sellotaped to trees on city streets and verbally (and maybe physically) abused.
Ukraine, as it now is, is a “failed state” in all ways.

Well, there it is. The Dutch situation was, in reality, the Dutch Experiment. A limited try-out.
I am feeling particularly happy and gung-ho right now.

The UK police, many of them, are far more interested in doing fake “communitarian” things than doing their proper job, “proper job” meaning deterring or investigating those old boring crimes such as murder, other offences against the person, crimes of acquisition etc.
No, all too many of them have embraced all too readily their new role of being the militia of a toytown “woke” police state, and a poundland KGB, snooping on tweets and other online material (whether they understand that material or not). Still, what goes around comes around, in the end…
The above clip is a typical example. The police in question are chatting about (?) football or (?) Eurovision, and are ignoring the unlawful blocking of the road… until their chat is interrupted. Then they take action, but against a victim of the malicious little pseudo-eco mob, not the mob itself!
Sometimes you can just see what may well happen not far down the road, and if the police fail —continue to fail— to stand with the British people, they themselves will fall victim.
Virtually subhuman. Drop him and the whole troop down a black hole.
Actually, I admit that I am wrong. Not “virtually“…
Many very silly people think that the Suffragettes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suffragette] were justified in their “direct action” programme, a kind of low-level “terrorism”, because without it, women would never have been granted the vote. The only thing about that, though, is that it is not true.
Still, she and her sister, and the husbands of both, have a “nice little earner” going on: both sisters are “Labour” MPs, and the sister is married to yet another Labour MP, while Rachel Reeves’ husband is also well-embedded in the present System: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_Joicey.
Add up the salaries of that quartet, their personal expenses, their “perks”, and their various other income streams, and you are probably looking at £1M-£2M p.a.
I am now old enough (66) to remember when “Labour” was at least notionally connected to “the working man”, or what were once called (by Labour MPs) “working people“.
Say what you want about Erdogan, he hustles, in the American phrase.
Ha ha! “I’ll have whatever he’s having“!
Ukraine will never join the EU, never join NATO, and may well not exist in its present form by 2030.
The USA may be waking up to the dangers of supplying “Ukraine” with endless American arms and cash. Cut off the supply.
Were the pieces of equipment supplied on the nod, without an end-user certificate?
Well, this week I again managed to beat political journalist John Rentoul. I scored 6/10 as against his self-awarded five and a half. I did not know the answers to questions 3, 6, 7, and 10. I just missed the last one, thinking that it might be the cassowary [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cassowary] (which can reach well over 6 feet in height). Apparently, though, that is only the third or fourth tallest bird.
On the main Maida Vale avenue just around the corner from my one-time address in Little Venice.
Very true. So many people are misled by that kind of “Mrs Thatcher housewife’s shopping basket” economics. One would have thought that John Rentoul would know better, or is he just (as in days of Blair) parrotting the “centrist” Labour Party line?
The Shard is an absolutely horrible building, aesthetically. Completely wrong in shape and size for its location.
As a former barrister (wrongfully and unlawfully disbarred in 2016 and not in actual Bar practice since 2008), I have applied a little thought to such questions.
My view is that sentencing has become absurd in the UK. While many defendants are certainly not given sufficient —or any— time in incarceration, despite having been convicted of very unpleasant offences, including crimes of very considerable violence, there is at the same time routine over-sentencing.
Many defendants are sentenced to, say, 5 years (for whatever), when 4 or 3 would be more than adequate (and, in terms of actual punishment, about the same).
At the same time, there are quite a few people incarcerated for no good reason at all, as in the recent free speech case of “Sven Longshanks” (James Allchurch), sentenced to 2.5 years for supposedly “inciting racial hatred” (he was convicted on 10 out of 15 charges). He will be in prison, probably, until 2024. Political “crime” in our “free country” (as was).
If Britain were not importing 700,000+ (mostly) non-whites every year, we should not have a “housing crisis” of any significance.
The term “Green Belt” just sets a marker that is universally understood or accepted, like the white lines in the middle of a highway.
I am not going to do an entire study of this one, but take a look at the Wikipedia entry: mixed Indian heritage; failed, at an early stage, to continue with a law degree, despite having been, in part, privately educated; seems to be a lesbian or something similar; “elected” (selected) as MP at age 23; took “several months” off from her MP duties in 2021; “celebrated” the attacks on statues of English historical figures.
Another deadhead MP.
An example of her views:
Mirabile dictu! Seems that Esther McVey has actually said something with which I can agree.
If it turns out that the Russian air force or ground forces cannot deal with the increasing influx of sophisticated weapons systems being supplied to the Kiev regime, the end result may be that the Russian leadership will decide to destroy both the bases of those aircraft and also any nearby urban areas.
As previously blogged, it should never have come to this. The invasion should have and could have been essentially over within a week, with Kiev taken, and Zelensky’s cabal eliminated or driven into exile.
“Waul has 50 previous convictions relating to 123 offences going back to 2001.”
The “enrichment” and “diversity” continues…
Concentration camp or execution.
Looks like it is in the UK. Human? I say “humanoid”, at best.
What always strikes me about the Israeli police response to any incident is how swift it is. Not one, but several, and often many, police, security agents, soldiers etc are on the scene quickly, usually in seconds, at least in the Old City of Jerusalem or in the central parts of Tel Aviv. Reminiscent of the quick reaction of the militia in Moscow in Soviet times, if there were any sort of public disorder. The Israelis must have huge numbers of police personnel.
In a well-known and probably (?) apocryphal saying, Lenin is supposed to have opined that “in order to destroy a nation, first destroy its currency“. I suppose that he could not have foreseen the possibility that a nation’s integrity, credibility, and soul could be destroyed by migration-invasion, an invasion not through feat of arms, but through the moral weakness and/or self-hate of the people of the invaded country itself (whipped up, as usual, by “them”, the “you know who” element). He would not have believed it possible.
I have blogged briefly about that silly “ho”, Clare Moseley, in the past. Like so many English people, perhaps especially women, who attach themselves to “anti-racist”-type causes (“refugees welcome”, anti-apartheid etc), intellect is limited, emotionalism uncontrolled, hypocrisy common, and both knowledge and experience of the subject-matter usually absent.
They usually have mental health “issues” as well. See also:
There is nothing wrong with being “antisemitic” anyway, and in the UK it is not a crime, despite what many ignorant Twitter types often tweet.
Looks as if “the musicians” are about to complete their performance in that area. музыканты хорошо играют…
What Russia lacks is a real ideology that goes beyond mere Great-Russian nationalism.
This looks hopeful, on the face of it. Kennedy is all for taking away the ricebowl of the Kiev regime. At the same time, Biden is very clearly mentally unfit to continue in his office.
Economic sanctions either do not work at all or have unexpected consequences. When I visited Rhodesia in 1977, aged 20, I half-expected to see a country weighed down by sanctions imposed by the UN. What I found was a country where those who owned cars mostly drove quite new ones. The UK complied with the sanctions regime, but France, Germany, Japan etc did not, judging by the cars seen on the road. Outside the capital, Salisbury (now Harare), though, there were often empty roads— one sanction that did have an effect was that on fuel, which was rationed.
I noticed that books were hard to get. The main bookshop (I was told it was the main one) in Salisbury had few if any serious books (and none of my then-favourite Penguin Classics), but plenty of books from South Africa, most seemingly (my perception, anyway) about how to take care of your horse/dog/cat/tropical fish. You could buy Wilbur Smith adventures, another South African import [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilbur_Smith]. Also, no American or British news and current events magazines, no Time, Newsweek, Spectator etc. Rather poor South African magazines such as Scope were available. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scope_(magazine).
The dearth of serious reading material was probably the result of both sanctions and the disinclination of most Rhodesians to spend time on intellectual pursuits even of a superficial nature.
As to other effects of the sanctions regime against Rhodesia, imported booze (from Europe or North America) was almost unobtainable, but that did not affect me personally during my time there, because my main drink, apart from water and orange juice, was beer, and the local product was of high quality (Lion Lager or Simba, pronounced “Shumba“, or South African Castle Pilsner, my favourite).
The Rhodesians tried to get around sanctions by diversifying, producing admittedly inferior substitutes for previously imported products. Everything from chocolate to whisky, and even some firearms. I remember seeing ads in the local press for a highly inaccurate submachinegun called the Rho-gun. I seem to recall that the price was about $290 (Rhodesian dollars, not exchangeable outside the country officially, though I did manage to sell quite a few —at a poor exchange rate— to a businessman in Gaborone, Botswana, after I left Rhodesia).
I noticed that “white goods” such as refrigerators, icemaking machines etc were very expensive, whereas locally-produced food such as oranges, nuts, and biltong (meat, often beef or antelope, dried in the sun) etc was not too expensive.
As for exports (supposedly impossible under the UN sanctions regime), the Rhodesians were able to export minerals and some fruit etc. Years later, I discovered that the Soviet Union, one of the states pressing for harder sanctions against Rhodesia (and South Africa) had in fact been secretly buying Rhodesian exports (at a substantial discount). Chromium and other minerals, and Mazoe oranges (sold in the Soviet Union as “Chinese”, apparently). All shipped out of Mozambique.
Tobacco was another prime export, sold on world markets by a sanctions-busting operation based, I think, in Rotterdam.
The idea that Russia will be “brought to its knees” by economic sanctions is a pipe-dream. In fact, such sanctions help Russia in a “be cruel to be kind” way. They force Russia to diversify, and to improve agriculture and horticulture. The sanctions have also forced Russia to create new trading links, and to strengthen existing ones.
“Human rights abuses”
The next time some bought-and-paid-for “British” or American politician-for-hire, or some Jew neo-con publicist, or fake “centrist”, talks about “human rights abuses” by Russia or others, remember the behaviour of the USA itself. Here are a few examples:
In tropical heat and/or blazing sunshine as well…
The above two images show the American concentration camp at Guantanamo Bay, on the island of Cuba.
…the fact is that the German camp guards of WW2, and even the brutal Soviet guards in their labour camps, behaved better than the Americans have in recent decades.
Behind the executives, and the paid-for public faces, the New World Order (NWO), and much of that is tied in with World Zionism, and Israel.
More tweets seen
Unless a true movement can emerge in the UK and mainland Europe pretty rapidly, that must be correct.
In 2016, one of the five tweets that got me disbarred, at the instigation of two connected packs of Jews, was that describing Sarkozy —accurately, except that he is not a full Jew, only part— as “a corrupt little Jew“. Well, scroll on 6-7 years and here we are…
Another of the five supposedly “grossly offensive” tweets posted by me, as a result of which I was unlawfully disbarred, was that describing snivelling cocaine user and drunk, Gove, as corrupt, as a fraudster and as a freeloader, and also as being in the pocket of the Israel/Jewish lobby.
Well, any argument on that now?
Look at the above news report. Speculators and parasites are favoured by Gove’s latest policy U-turn. Not all are Jews (and not all Jews are speculators and/or parasites) but, at the same time…
So, of the five “offensive” tweets, turns out that, in fact, two were undoubtedly —and now provably— simple true statements of fact, as were also (in reality) the other three tweets in question.
Corbyn was not even decently “antisemitic”, despite the constant (((whine))) about him. In general, a complete idiot.
700,000 immigrants last year. That’s “net”, meaning maybe a million entered but 300,000 (mainly real British people going to Australia, NZ, Canada etc) left.
Britain as a dustbin.
As, I think, Lord Green of Deddington said in the Lords recently, that amount of immigration means that, just to stand still, Britain requires 300 new dwellings every single day!
Horrible little blots such as Tom Harwood are now showing tiny bits of the Green Belt as scruffy here and there. The exceptions that prove the rule— the Green Belt must be saved and, yes, improved.
Starmer can now, I hope, kiss goodbye to his desired Commons majority in 2024. Much as I want rid of the “Conservatives”, Starmer-Labour is now showing its hand…and it is looking even worse.
It has nothing much to do with “dream of home ownership“. In any case, who wants to own a concrete or brick box in a hellhole landscape, and in which “neighbourhood” your “neighbours” may well be persons of backward culture not long off the boat (literally)?
Is that an honest poll? I wonder. Of course, the public has had 1-2 years of brainwashing or conditioning.
I wonder whether the results might have been different had the question made the point that if Ukraine joins NATO and has a war with Russia, it will be mandatory for all NATO states to join in. That is to say, it would be mandatory to join in a war against Russia which would almost certainly either be or become nuclear.
I suppose that, even were the question to elucidate the situation to the people asked, a few lunatics would still want to fight Russia, but most might think that the utter destruction of their homes and whole way of life would be a high price to pay for supporting “Ukraine” (the Kiev regime)…
Starmer still no more popular than Sunak, give or take a couple of points. Both stupid wasters unpopular with 60%-69% of the voters.
I daresay that, in a month’s time, once people realize that Starmer wants to continue to import millions of unwanted migrant-invaders, and destroy what is left of the still-beautiful English countryside so that millions of hutches can be built to house them, the popularity of Starmer —and so, Labour— will fall further yet.
The whole two-party system (with LibDem/dustbin add-on) is very ingrained. It is, in itself, a potent form of conditioning or brainwashing.
Thinking about that visit to Rhodesia in 1977: many people imagine that a collapsing society looks like Germany in 1945 (or 1923). Not so. I was in Poland (several times) in 1988 and 1989; also, in the DDR/East Germany, and Czechoslovakia.
The whole socialist system fell apart in late 1989. Yet the police still patrolled, the borders were maintained and guarded (until the Berlin Wall fell), utilities still worked, and there were few political demonstrations, let alone riots or the like. Letters continued to be delivered. Shops remained open, even if they had little to sell in some cases. The seismic changes were about to happen, but there were only slight external signs of that.
One got a sense of considerable discontent, talking to people in Poland and Czechoslovakia (on those visits and elsewhere as well), but the surface normality prevailed. The police still functioned, even in Poland (I myself picked up two tickets for, in the American phrase, “jaywalking”, i.e. crossing the road at the wrong place). Fined on the spot…twice. A recidivist.
Turning from those situations to the UK, there often seems to be little public appetite for swift political change. Frustrating for many of us.
We have seen, over 20 years, almost uncontrolled mass immigration (including, now, direct migration-invasion in small boats across the Channel, thousands of the bastards per day), crushing “austerity” for the poorer half of the society, ridiculous policies about the “Covid” “panicdemic” etc, an inability of Government to supply (directly, or via the private and/or third sectors) services vital to the people (such as trains, road repair, NHS or other healthcare, social care for various groups). Also, a failure to guard our borders, and a failure to clamp down on real crime (theft, drug abuse, social nuisance etc)., while kow-towing to Jewish/Zionist pressure re. social media non-crime.
Now we see idiots such as Ann Widdecombe criticizing parents who cannot afford to feed their children cheese sandwiches, while pumping billions out to “Ukraine” (the Jewish regime in Kiev) and to house and feed unwanted nuisances who have arrived via unauthorized Channel crossings.
Talk to people, and you get a sense of weary resignation in them, rather than anger, though that may also be there, under the urbane English exterior.
Still, there is everything yet to play for. The NSDAP vote in Germany was only 2.6% in 1928. Events happened, and the NSDAP triumphed only 4-5 years later.
“Purplebricks, the once high-flying online estate agent that reached a peak valuation of more than £1.3bn, has been sold to Charles Dunstone-backed rival Strike for £1 with all of its more than 750 staff put at risk of redundancy.
Purplebricks launched in 2014 and received early backing from Neil Woodford, the former star stockpicker. It floated on London’s junior market, Aim, in December 2015.”
Another example of the madness of crowds, and the madness of finance-capitalism, though I concede that there are arguments to the contrary.
Remember Lastminute.com? The newspapers boosted that simple and actually not very clever idea, made an entitled/privileged and silly woman (and her Jewish business partner) incredibly wealthy in the speculative scramble, but it ended with the small shareholders all wiped out; cheated, in reality.
The only thing that can be said is that at least most of those small shareholders lost only a few hundred pounds, if that, their share allocations having been very small.
Lastminute is still, I think, trading, technically. I tried to use the booking service once, about 20 years ago. Useless.
As to Purplebricks, looks as if many shareholders are now left with the value of their shareholding being worth little more than 1% of the peak valuation.

I have been blogging for years about how the UK should get closer to Russia, which would result in this country and its people getting oil and especially gas at near cost-price; instead of which this inept government of clowns has not only not done that, but has insisted on poking Russia with a sharp stick, first of all by applying sanctions which hurt the UK far more than Russia, and secondly by supplying arms and money to the dictatorial and illegitimate Zelensky regime in Kiev.
Sunak personifies large parts of the overall problem: an Indian resident in the UK, and with a “British” passport, but avoiding most taxes, and who holds or until recently held, other passports; a former Goldman Sachs vulture banker; a globalist; pro-Israel; pro-immigration.
I saw a new ad recently. A white woman, 30-40, buying or leasing an expensive new car. Among the images, one of a mixed-race small child and one —almost subliminal— of the woman kissing the skull of a recumbent Bantu (father of said child?). Rassenschande.
Dr. Goebbels had nothing on this. 24/7 pervasive propaganda, pushing what amounts to the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, or “White Genocide” by stealth.
For once, and on this specifically, I support “Extinction Rebellion”.
For me, this matter should have been resolved by better planning at an earlier stage.
BBC Radio 4 News
Heard some of the 1800 hrs. BBC news on radio. Jesus H. Christ! Pure propaganda, mostly given over to the Commonwealth Games, which are apparently now in progress in Birmingham.
The reporter was obviously black, I think West Indian, and most of what he had to say was basically an attack on Britain, the British Empire, and the real (white) British people who built this country.
Defund the BBC, you say? I say obliterate it.
To make it worse, who was blathering on about his “convictions” (he has none, sadly, in either sense) but Boris-idiot, still posing as PM and saying that the £800M wasted on the aforesaid Birmingham black/brown pleb-fest was a good investment! That idiot really breaks all records for both dishonesty and sheer incompetence.
Saw on the TV news the first-ever filmed and broadcast sentencing, for murder. The judge was one Sarah Munro, i.e. H.H. Sarah Munro Q.C. I met her once in the (unisex) “advocate’s room” (robing room, as was) at Plymouth —or maybe Exeter, in fact; I cannot now recall— County Court (where I was appearing) and Crown Court (where she was appearing). Not sure whether she had taken silk at that point. Maybe. Sometime between 2002 and 2007. A very charming lady.
As to televised sentencing, I suppose it had to come eventually.
I was, when a practising barrister (1992-2008, with interruptions), always amazed at how few non-legal people even understood the basic court system. For example, the difference between a Crown Court and a County Court. Perhaps because they are now often in the same building. That should be taught, together with a few elementary legal concepts, at the secondary school level (as was done in ancient Rome). Either it is not being done in the UK, or not done effectively.
A kingfisher? Beautiful. I have only seen one once or twice, flying along the banks of small rivers unfrequented by humans.
The only hope for Greece was Golden Dawn. Instead, the Greeks mostly clutched at the wrong straw, the fake “Leftist”/”socialist” party, Syriza, which then betrayed the Greek people and sold out to EU globalist finance-capitalism. Meanwhile, Golden Dawn is repressed, its leaders killed or in prison.
…and completely stupid whichever cretin wins…
Migration-invasion. It continues, day after day, up to 1,000 a day across the Channel. That’s just the “boat people”, not those coming in as invitees, “students” “family members”, “fiances and fiancees”, “business investors” etc.
When aged 7-10, used rusty bathtubs as sledges in old quarries, made home-made smoke bombs out of chemistry set chemicals (now not on sale in the UK and most of Europe) and odd bits and pieces, dug tunnels etc; later (aged 13) constructed a primitive but real baluster (Roman siege machine), which could and did hurl large boulders. Later still…well, let’s draw a veil…
I called it wrong. My view, up to the morning of the by-election, was that the Conservative Party would hang on, though probably with a smallish majority. After all, even in the Labour landslide (perceived landslide, at least) of 1997, the Con vote in the constituency topped 50%, and the expenses-blodging of the Con MP made no difference at all in 2010 (60.4%).
Yesterday, during the day of the by-election, I saw from news and tweets that the LibDems were showing strongly, but I still did not think that, on balance, they could dislodge the Conservatives, who had held the seat with ease since its creation in 1974.
I was not alone in guessing at a likely successful Con defence. Here was the Chief Political Correspondent of the Financial Times, tweeting only yesterday afternoon…
…and that tweet was retweeted by Britain Elects [@BritainElects].
Now we know. The LibDem vote-share more than doubled to 56.7%. The Con vote slumped to 35.5% (from 55.4% in 2019).
The Green Party candidate managed third place, though losing her deposit; she scored 3.9%, poor compared to 2019’s 5.5%.
The Labour Party lost its deposit for the first time in the history of the constituency, scoring only 1.6% (compared to 12.9% in 2019). Only 622 votes, on a turnout of over 38,000.
Of the remaining four candidates, only Reform Party, the lame-duck successor to Brexit Party, scored above 1% (1.1%). Breakthrough Party 0.5%; Freedom Alliance 0.4% and, very much “tail-end Charlie”, Rejoin EU (0.3%). The last’s candidate, one-time Foreign Office man (and 1990s Con MEP) Brendan Donnelly, had made what must surely have been the least-convincing argument to the voters, i.e. that nothing could be done to help Chesham and Amersham people until the UK rejoined the EU!
My thoughts on the by-election, now that the results are known? First, of course, that this was the convergence of several factors such as, most importantly, the prevalence of tactical voting.
Former or otherwise Labour and Green voters seem to have taken the view that their preferred candidate was not going to win, and so they voted LibDem as the least-worse of the two main options.
Local factors (the usual LibDem strong suit) played a part: the trashing of the Green Belt by the present “Borshch Belt” government; the subservience of the “Conservative” government to the big housebuilding companies and their featureless tracts of expensive but unaesthetic housing; the continuing of the pointless and vandalistic HS2 rail project.
Turnout was low, about 52% (two-thirds of that of the 2019 General Election). Many former Conservative voters, perhaps angry at the HS2 situation, and/or the Con plans to build on the local Green Belt, seem to have stayed home.
My main interest in the by-election was to see how far Labour would slump. I correctly predicted from the start that Labour would lose its deposit, but I had envisaged a vote-share of just below 5%, not one well below 2%!
I suppose that Labour officials will be saying that Labour voters simply “lent their votes” to the LibDems, tactically. Some truth in that, of course, but for me the story is that Labour is very much on the way out now, and is perceived as a niche party rather than as an alternative government.
The result at Chesham and Amersham certainly reinforces the view that Labour has nothing at all to offer most English people, and that most English people are alert to that fact.
I have blogged fairly prolifically about Labour’s loss of a role and a purpose in the post-1989 space. What is extraordinary is that Labour’s remaining supporters do not see what is in front of their eyes. For them, there are two main System parties, and Labour is one of them, and all they need to do is wait until the pendulum swings back their way.
In reality, Labour has lost Scotland forever, and any “Independence” (however defined) will mean that Labour would not even be able to form a UK coalition or minority government with SNP support. The 59 Scottish seats are vital.
The breakdown of the old Labour-voting industrial communities in the North and Midlands, and in Wales, leaves Labour like a spare guest at a festivity.
One could imagine that a charismatic Labour leader with real ideas might be able to reinvent Labour, perhaps along the lines of Blue Labour [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Labour], a kind of very watered-down “national socialism” in an English context.
There is no sign at present that Labour can do that. Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer is as dull as ditchwater, and has no interesting ideas at all politically or socially, like most barristers. Corbyn got halfway there, despite being not too intelligent and being almost uneducated.
Corbyn was too weak on the Jewish Question or “JQ”, while Starmer is just a complete puppet. Both also subscribe to the pathetic “Black Lives Matter” nonsense. Starmer was photographed on his knee, with Angela Rayner, displaying fealty to the nonsense. At least Boris-idiot has not done that!
Labour is now basically a party for some ethnic minorities, for some NHS and other public service employees, and for the sort of unthinking pseudo-“socialists” found on Twitter.
Could there be similar upsets? I suppose so, if there is dissatisfaction with the Conservatives, a by-election, and a seat where there is a strong LibDem presence but also where Labour and others have no real chance of success. However, I doubt that the LibDems are really reviving across the board.
Ha ha! The sort of unthinking nonsense one would expect from that sort of creature. She managed to get to the age of about 30 without ever having had a job, after which she got in on the old “anti-racism” and local councillor freebie system. She is presently awaiting trial on a serious charge…”Vote Labour!”(if you are an idiot!)… [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claudia_Webbe].
