So Gordon Brown is the Socialist future, our glorious leader, PM at last, the move next door he has dreamt of for years. Bambi is dead. And to think that he and me share the exact same birthdate, February 20th,1951. Mind you, even I have no working class claim anymore, being a school teacher. Still, that staunch Methodism of his doesn't bode well for the future, and that dimshit Cameron will get in.Oh happy bloody day, and half the country is underwater, and my wife is in Atlanta,Georgia to compete in the 'Meet in the Heat' and I'm stuck in Harlow with the lad and the blooody rain. Any Redskins fans in Atlanta, pop along and cheer on wor lass, Anne Wafula Strike.
It's the party that needs to change and not just the PM. It just shows what a sorry state the labour party is in these days when they can't even hold a leadership election. Unless they are some major changes I think it will be awhile yet before I could vote labour again. Saying that, I did cast my vote in the election for the deputy leader. But my choice didn't get the job.
Spot on Bazza, just trying to stimulate some debate and publicise wor lass a little bit. Its a shame cos there are some really good Socialists in the Labour party.Unfortunately my local MP aint one of them so I guess I shall just waste my vote on Respect, having no real alternative. It really galls me to give my vote to a Party associated with George Galloway.
You are lucky having the choice of Respect to vote for. As the last time I voted there were just 5 parties standing - labour, liberal, tory, ukip & bnp. Sad to say this, but I wrote "none of the above" on the bottom of my ballot slip before putting it in the box.
The point is Bazza that parliamentary democracy doesn't work, which is why we need a proper revolution to bring about proper socialism. The underclass is growing bigger by the day, and when you get football players earning more per week than most of us see in 5 years and the rich growing progressively richer, then you have to see it as totally unfair, unjust, and totally selfish.One solution,Revolution.
We are all "Thatcher's children" and that is the real problem, there is only one I in society! I am a confirmed unionist but having worked in non union docks where I was the sole union member, I know a lot of the working class are still too scared or brainwashed by thatchers retoric to stick their heads above the parapet, even now. Luckily, I now work in a unionised port and we are at last finding our feet and the confidence to face up to the challenges we face. I fear things will have to get far worse before, we the left, can reorganise sufficiently to make real change. The Masses are swallowing the cult of celebrity, and think they too can make millions with little or no talent. Allowing the few to atain huge riches is conning our poorest people into dreaming they too can gain such riches. Until we all realise that better for all is atainable but better for me is a lie, we will struggle to reorganise those who will benefit most from the socialist agenda.
