Labour Equals UKIP Lite 88


Miliband promises tougher immigration controls than Tories, after his promise of triple lock guaranteed austerity. How much more right wing can Labour get? Having alienated the Scottish people, are Labour now trying to alienate everybody outside London and Surrey? It seems Labour policy is made by a focus group of hedge fund managers infiltrated by Farage.

    Until a grass-roots movement gets going again, be it Left Unity, as a sister party to Podmos and Syriza, or the Greens, who I would vote for if they came out as a left party, it presents problems. My heart and brain tell me, as someone who loves the human race instead of 1% of it, I could never vote Tory. The Labour Party is as bad with Bilderberger Ed Balls waiting in the wings for Zionist Ed to pop his clogs. I’ve never supported and always opposed fascists and racists sothat writes off UKIP as well as the Tories. The Liberal Democrats are dead on their feet. Who then realistically? In my constituency, Selly Oak in Birmingham, there is only one runner and I may find myself voting Labour just to keep out this shower of shit. Apart from a diminishing group of old Labour left, the campaign group, there is nobody in parliament representing my views. Both main parties are virtually the same. 🙁

    Craig,I never thought of you as a golfer.
    At least UKIP is not going to go and drop bombs on them or get involved changing their countries and otherwise interfering in their lives.
    Perhaps we might even resign our role as a neocon poodle?

    Perhaps I didn’t catch all of it, but I heard Miliband reported as saying that particular attention would be paid to the question (or problem) of the exploitation of foreign workers, eg to them being paid below the minimum wage and so undercutting local labour or indeed to their presence on the labour market keeping wage levels lower than they would otherwise be.

    If those problems exist and if Miliband were do something about them, would that be a problem for anyone on here?

  • Its a sham

    Its incredible 18 days before a general election the incumbent Tory government is actively negotiating a complete surrender of national sovereignty to multinational corporations ostensibly as a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement. All done in secret, the impunity of it all??!! And silence from the Labour Party too, about something that will affect millions of wage earners and voters. It can only mean one thing, there must be a secret state within a state, a global animal, even the US Congress has given way and agreed to rubber stamp the outcome of the ongoing secret negotiations.

  • Republicofscotland

    Erm…Nope,haven’t you noticed yet,I’m 100% behind my country Scotland.

    The UK will eventually break up,not because of nationalists like myself,but because Westminster,has taken the home nations people aspirations for granted for far too long,by focusing on London to much.

    Yes, it is terrifying, and so are the police state laws these feckers have been passing in recent years, and so are the army of trolls who have dominated comment threads in recent years. These total vermin have sleep-walked us into 1984.

    ROS, the UK will break up because a large number of people in Scotland (and Wales) don’t want to be a part of the neocon lunatic asylum that England has become.

    This fact never gets mentioned in the media, which is almost entirely controlled by neocons.

    Firstly Rob I’ve got say right off the bat,that I have great respect for the good people of England and the other home nations,it’s Westminster,and as you say those within and their neocon policies,that led to the situation we’re in now.

    There’s a huge divide now in the UK,between the rich and poor,almost Dickensian,the rise of foodbanks,and zero-hour contracts,of which David Cameron said he couldn’t live on,has led to a low wage economy.

    David Cameron’s 5 year austerity plan,has only hardened,the attitudes towards a shift away from Westminster,with both Wales and NI looking to increase their stance on devolution.

    Why shouldn’t they alienate you? The British parties are not campaigning for your vote. It’s not you that gets to choose, it’s the City and BP and a few other crucial electors like CIA.

    The vote will be adjusted to come out right, whatever it takes. NATO is assisting assassinations in Ukraine. Does anyone think they will scruple to ratfuck nationalists in the first and most proximate colony of their most servile, hard-line satellite?

    We certainly are John, but I think Chomsky’s flirtation with Anarcho-syndicalism is mistaken, and gives gratuitous ammunition to his many enemies.

    That’s really interesting. Why?

    I hardly think it is correct to describe it as a “flirtation”.

    Chomsky is principally known as a critic of US foreign policy, but whenever he speaks about the kind of society he envisages as a good one, which is not that often, he invariably presents an anarcho-syndicalist picture.

    All of you clever people out there are going to vote for one of the two political parties who have caused you untold harm.

    Some have died, some have been maimed,some have been bankrupted, some made homeless.
    The list of failures and cover-ups is endless.

    Nevertheless, you will vote for them again and again. Then bleat about how bad they are afterwards.

    Hello, is there anyone home?.

    Really the devils can be easily outed if it can be figured out how to break the “omerta” that causes the thousands of operatives and enablers at all levels,who are necessary for the execution of their NWO/neocon schemes, to remain silent.

    Some notable examples of omerta breakers – Vanunu, Snowden and our very own CM. I would put forward the following as minimal requirement for whistle blowing:-

    1) Financial independence
    2) Contingent Public disclosure via YouTube video upon “suicide” – Kelly would still be alive if they feared the release of such a video.
    3) Break up of media monopolies

  • Ba'al Zevul

    I have no trouble excoriating Blair for perpetuating a global labour market as a means of maximising corporate profit at the expense of productive workers, and, in his time, opening the floodgates to cheap foreign labour. So it would be inconsistent of me to deplore Miliband’s announced intention to end the undercutting of UK wages by imported workers from poorer countries. Maybe that’s selfish? Reflect that as soon as the incomes and aspirations rise in those formerly poor countries, they will find themselves being undercut in their turn, and that the lowest common denominator will always be, in the globalist ideal, the determinant of what the majority can hope to earn.

    I think it’s gone beyond rightwing and leftwing. Maintaining the notion of a dichotomy is all too helpful to the promotion of a one-way global flow of money and power towards the already obscenely wealthy and powerful. We’re back in the Middle Ages.

    At least Ed went to a comprehensive and not a grammar school like you, posh boy! He’s also more outspoken on LGBT rights. You claim to be a ‘human rights’ activist yet you fail to mention the persecution and terror that LGBT people worldwide have to go through on your blog. Then again, what does one expect of an heterosexist, gender normative privileged male who left his wife for a performer after frequenting a lap dancing club, courtesy of us hard working British taxpayers’ money to the FO, eh?!!!!;)

    Not for me – especially given that there have been very few prosecutions for breach of the minimum wages legislation to date. Of course any such action just equates to Labour being tougher on immigration than the Tories in Craig’s book – but that is probably because he would prefer Cameron to Miliband as the next Prime Minister, even though he doesn’t want to go against his party’s official line.

    Burnham says that there is a Tory plan to cut the number of NHS nurses by 2,000 over the next 4 years.

    ‘Election 2015: Fewer nurses forecast for NHS – Labour
    7 hours ago

    The number of NHS nurses in England is set to fall by almost 2,000 over the next four years according to government projections, Labour has said.

    Accusing the Conservatives of having a “secret plan”, Labour’s Andy Burnham said fewer nurses would push hospitals “over the edge”.

    The health document Labour is basing its claims on says fewer nurses would be employed because of “affordability”.

    The Tories said the real threat to nurses was a Labour-SNP government.’

    Both Miliband and Cameron support Zionist Israel. Do they support this state of affairs in Gaza and would the Israelis themselves accept these living conditions?

    “Currently only 10% of water from the Gaza aquifer is safe to drink. UNRWA estimates that the aquifer may become unusable as soon as 2016, with irreversible damage caused by 2020. 90 million litres of untreated or partially untreated sewage are poured into Gaza’s sea every day, contaminating fish and creating a public health hazard.”

    Southern tree bears strange fruit,
    Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
    Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
    Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

    Pastoral scenes of the gallant South,
    Of the bulging eye and the twisted mouth,
    Scent of magnolia, sweet and fresh,
    And then the sudden smell of burning flesh.

    Here is fruit for the crows to pluck
    For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
    For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop
    Here is a strange and bitter crop.
