The David Miliband and Ed Balls leaks are meant to hurt Labour. Why now?
Because the Labour Party needs to be trampled into the dust. The buildings razed, the population sold into bondage and the land ploughed with salt. It is sweet and necessary for us to kill our enemies and to hear the lamentations of their women.
This does not apply to those who would champion the rights of the workers in our economy, nor to those who would have a more social democratic polity, those who desire more equality nor even those obsessed with the isms….feminism, anti-racisms, genderism and the rest.
It applies solely to the Labour Party. For deep within its primordial brain, in the recesses which produce the knee jerk reactions, the Labour Party is wrong.
They speak the speak of desiring those good things in the second para above. But all of their actual policy initiatives militate against those very things. What the UK needs is a left wing party (hey, I might still disagree with the goals) which is actually competent at proposing policies which can achieve their stated goals. And Labour just ain\’t it. And cannot be.
Err, yes, a tad over the top but there\’s a truth or two in there……
