I’ll also leave out they support the same policies as the Tories whatever the Tory fiction about massive cuts – after all SNP, Libs and Labour have the same spending plans too. We’ll leave out their obvious racism where they try to sound marginally slower swiveling of the eyes than the Tories. We’ll even credit them on Syria not bombing to help our friends al Queada and now enemies IS. Continue reading »

It’s not what he would have chosen and nor would anyone but the most depraved say that Miliband wanted the frankly child like attack on his father from the paper that backed fascism and did not want Jews to come to the UK. I am not inferring that in any way. Indeed that it fell in the Tory party conference when they planned to showcase Theresa May’s small minded bigotry is a happy accident and shows the Mail has no thought to the timing of its bigoted ignorance.

I am not sure there was much choice for the left leaning human in the Labour leadership race. Nonetheless it is disquieting the rigged ballot papers and other small ‘g’ gerrymandering that went on to defy the opinions of MPs and the party membership – the GMB’s ballot paper seemed especially egregious. I am sure every levy paying Tory was out with there “we want Ed” badges.

What makes this even more Pyrrhic is a runway either way there is barely a fag paper between the Miliband brothers on policy. Just as surprisingly for some the main difference between Blair and Brown was the latter’s misogyny and more judgmental and flawed personality. The actual differences between the two sides of the Labour party are no more than the narcissism of small differences. Quite how the left writers who claim to be environmental and liberal like Johann Hari and Joss Garman can care is beyond me.

What must worry Labour voters is that the architect of the Unions for Ed campaign was none other than the useless grand standing fool Tony Woodley who has led the Cabin Crew to defeat. A man who gives a job and members’ money to Charlie Whelan a vile everyman turd who was so depraved he, like Balls, has supported and worked for Brown for years. A man so incapable of strategy that Willie Walsh and the BA board must drink to him every single day. It’s a measure of how infantile the Labour movement is that Tony Woodley would be allowed to participate in a church fête never mind the careers and livelihoods of tens of thousands of his members.

It all comes back to my point that left leaning people will get nowhere patronising the Labour Party. There is nothing there. At best join the party but let’s develop our own candidates, ideas and economics. If not we’ll make the mistake of supporting the likes of Kinnock, Brown and Ed the Shred against people who share the same views but lie less forever.

Reading other left websites I’d love the readership, the links and fellowship of my fellow bloggers but then I’d probably be re-tweeting the banal like me(s) of Ed ‘The Bland’ Miliband. I’d have to temper my critique of Torture and Rendition’s ‘Pied Piper’ Straw cos his son works on one. I’d probably be mildly distanced for liking and agreeing with Cameron’s description of Ed Balls as the Alf Garnett of British Politics for his ‘it woz the imi-grants wot dun it’ rants. My view that relative to the accepted standards of this country that Brown, Straw and Blair and all the acolytes like Miliband (x2), Whelan, Balls et al were all depraved would not be popular.

Not when Labourites are wrapping themselves in the sanctimony of not being the party of austerity – no just the cause! When Brown has found a whole continent to patronise. Indeed Brown’s dislike of working people with views and lives and his preference for mere victims reliant on patronage which he can give sums up the duality of New Labour pretty well.  Instead they want to give you pensions and child tax credits and you to be grateful and shut up about furriners, going on strike, human rights, excessively rich people paying no tax, education biased to the middle classes, health biased to the middle classes and Police brutality. For instance last week’s Brian Clough documentaries showed him as the kind of confident outspoken working class hero so despised of New Labour.

Leaving aside personal disgust for the nasty creeps in the Labour Shadow Cabinet, almost all soiled by acts and association, the fact I view no policy they have as positive would be a deal breaker. Labour policy is universally derived from electoral advantage internally and externally. Labour policy is even after the defeat a series of statements and pledges with neither coherence nor depth. They are un-vote-able for by anyone who wants a positive long term future for this country.

That does not mean I accept the depth of cuts. Merely that a party who ran the Health Service for 13 years and spent massive amounts on it but killed thousands with re-organisations and a failure to do what was obvious in 1997, clean the damn hospitals, is a not a  party interested in results just electoral advantage. To answer the question the Lesser of Two Evils is still the Lesser of Two Evils I would answer

Are They? Prove it.
