Darling, darling Polly

She really has missed something important about the British left:

But presumably most people signing up to a political party actually want their party in power,

That part of the British left represented by Momentum and those further left aren’t concerned about power, no, not power as in Parliamentary power. They’re also not interested in this universe nor actual human beings. They’ve a vision in their heads and that’s what is important, clinging to that vision and nothing else. And it always has been that way too.

Still, at least this is an improvement on her welcoming of the last Labour leader but two, the one eyed Viking.

  1. Ollie thinks there’s no reason why capital gains should not be the same rate as income tax.

  2. She blows with the wind, each new face a new dawn. Unfortunately it’s the same old story: tax the rich 1pct, incarcerate bankers (and Philip Green), and life for the 99pct of us will be milk and honey.

  3. “tax the rich 1pct”: nah, it would be far better just to confiscate their foreign property, wouldn’t it?

  4. They are interested in power. But they live in a fantasy world where the public wants Corbyn type politics. Maybe not the leaders, but I’ve met Corbyn supporters and they honestly think this: the public didn’t vote for Brown/Miliband because he wasn’t left enough.

  5. Not only but also ; do you not remember when Hollande was elected Labour drivelling on about how wonderful France was going to be and it would show the tories up etc.

    Seems to have gone quiet …

  6. “any employee in Venezuela can be effectively made to work in the country’s fields”

    Wouldn’t it be better to put the *un*employed to work in the fields? They can’t even get workfare right.

    It’s a measure of how fucked their way of thinking is that their answer to problems with agricultural production is to throw more bodies at it. Have labour shortages been a factor in poor farming yields since Jethro Tull invented the seed drill? I seem to recall the ChiComs trying something similar, with less than salubrious results.

    “Ollie thinks there’s no reason why capital gains should not be the same rate as income.”

    I suppose it’s a bit much to hope that means they’ll reduce income taxes?
