Election blues.

Oh dear.....having just watched a clip of Jeremy saying he's loving every minute of campaigning I just want to weep. Here is a man totally deluded by his own campaign.
I am sure he is a lovely man. I am certain that in his mind he is a winner....after all he tells us that he's been elected twice in the last two years to lead his party.
But the facts speak for themselves....under his leadership the Labour Party is perilously close to being buried....for ever!
I grieve for this party...having spent far too many years as a girl being a ward secretary in it.
I left the party after Tony Blair took us into war on a lie. Nothing since has persuaded me to go back....even now when I hear the death rattle approaching.
It's not too late Jeremy.....there's still time to act by sacrificing yourself. A noble gesture of resignation would help....
His team are a reflection of him...and we need a new team...there must be good people still able to take over if necessary. Time to reassess strategy surely after all the recent losses....especially in Scotland...
Full marks for Mrs May.....her timing is perfect...

  1. You are quite right about the Labour Party, somewhere along the way they've lot the plot. And extremists have grabbed power, funded by militant union leaders, whose delusion is that they can bring back the good (bad) old days of holding the country to ransom.

    While I think trade unions are a good thing, their political sides are a worry, in a democratic society, where power blocks seek to overpower the great mass who don't agree with them, by sheer force of cash injected into one party or another.

    I believe that Unions should be treated and governed like charities and not allowed to lobhy or to sponsor MP's etc. This applies equally to the Tories and other parties.

    Labour have a whisper of hope in those middle of the road people who are trying to recapture the centre ground, but at the moment, and not being heard.

    If we want a socialist government, we need look no further than the Green's, whose policies resemble traditional labour, but with an eye on the environment, which should be one of the big issues in the election, but barely gets a mention.

    I'm not sure where we are going, but the right wing at the moment seems to be on the way to power for an extended period and I see no future for Labour unless they get rid of their extremists who will be rejected by the electorate.
