There's no alternative UK Government so it doesn't matter how bad the Tories get they'll be in Government. They've been an absolute car crash since 2016 and let's be honest they've never looked like being ejected. Scotland needs to escape...
You are spot on Jack the crappy UK media try to cocoon us from the reality of the convulsions taking place in France since the beginning of December when the strike started and still continues, nor In the last year, of most of the incredible movements in Algeria, Sudan, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Ecuador, Chile, Columbia, Bolivia, Brazil, Haiti, Kashmir, Hong Kong, France, Catalonia and many more places. These events are a reflection of the world crisis of capitalism.
There are much larger forces at play than Johnson's puppeteer Dominic Cummings, whose strategies will be blown away and exposed for what they are in the coming World economic crisis. Johnson may listen to this maverick guru intently, however the serious representatives of Big Business and Capital who used every ally possible to prevent a Labour Government, as they will do to prevent Independence,see very clearly what is coming over the horizon. The Tories will as night follows day have to backtrack on their absurd 'Levelling up' lies and nonsense and in fact contrary to the 'Austerity is over' soundbite mantra will implement more cuts to councils and services. Wheels will come off.
The result of the last general election was an expression of the deep anger in society. The Tories will quickly find themselves unable to quell this anger as they continue to carry out cuts, laying the basis for major upheavals.
I agree with much of this except the implication that this is all Cummings. I think that lets Johnson off the hook. He is only interested in being in power and is trying to remove any obstacle to a continuation of that, Cummings providing the roadmap for him. saw this on facebook this morning and seems apt for both the US and Britain at present
quote from Henry A. Wallace, one time V.P. to F.D. Roosevelt “The really dangerous American fascist... is the man who wants to do in the United States in an American way what Hitler did in Germany in a Prussian way. The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power... They claim to be super-patriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution. They demand free enterprise, but are the spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest. Their final objective, toward which all their deceit is directed, is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection.
Written a couple of weeks written after the election defeat of Labour. One of the many allies that I mention was the cabal of right wing Labour MPs. An mention of my Blairite
'Comrade' Ian Murray MP too.
It has been reported widely in the press that up to 50 Labour MP's would leave the Labour Party if Rebbeca Long Bailly wins. Personnally I think that many of them will take a look at what happened to all those that jumped and burned like Chuka Umunna, Lucinda Berger et al and stay to disrupt which comes natural to them.
Rather than stabilising the situation in Britain, Johnson's election victory will create further turbulence. With a coming crisis, he will be unable to deliver on his promises. There will be a dramatic shift in consciousness in the next period.
