I’ve lived through labour governments since the 1960s. I’m not old enough to remember the great 45-51 governments!
Almost all labour governments have been Tory-lite governments though with some good things done. We may as well have a Tory government if people think that a return to New Labour is the only alternative. Thankfully thousands and thousands of people don’t think that and 12 million didn’t at the last election. That’s about the same amount that voted Tory.
Labour has to continue to get its message across to the people realising that the press, media and batch of doubters that are in the PLP will do anything just to keep Britain in a class ridden, intolerant place to live where the better off will want to preserve their interests and standing in society.
Sucking up to an American neocon foreign policy and having no ethics or morals in propping up evil murderous tyrant and even elected ones in the Middle East is not going to progress humanity. Corbyn is not perfect, makes mistakes and has not always led well and I’m saying that. But he’s better than the inherently greedy Tories and he’s got a way of dealing with life’s problems through a socialist outlook. I agree with that and there must be no return to new labour.
Not all social democrats or those who oppose Corbyn are traitors or Red Tories but a lot of them need to realise whose side they are on.all these smears mirrored by their advocates on this message board just slightly deflect from the path Labour is on. It will not be derailed so you has just better get used to it for some time to come. This is a testing time for the Left for sure but all those who want a society for the many and not the few should keep the faith. No return to Blairism and the neoThatcherite agenda. Decent British people deserve a decent society not a selfish one. Corbyn and his vision must be the best way currently of achieving that.
