Blood on the carpet really just does not cut it any more within the Labour party, its more like blood all over the place, its splattered on the furniture and covered all over the walls. As I am writing this its pretty much expected Jeremy Corbyn will win today and be re-elected as Labour leader. Needless to say the more moderate parliament MPs (PLP) will be grinding their teeth and cursing at this result in their frustration, Corbyn is like a very large heavy stone rock, unmovable.
Owen Smith played on his Welsh socialist roots from the valley etc, but he failed to convince the majority of card carrying Labour members. For all his socialist rhetoric people just thought he had a slight touch of the Tony Blair in him, he looks alittle too much like a PR man, and right now thats like the kiss of death within the Labour party as it lurches ever more to the hard left.
This is not the end of Labour wars, no this is just the beginning and as a right winger I am over over the moon. It will now take Labour many, many years to heal and get their act together once again. Labour voters are leaving Labour in massive droves and moving to the right. Why? well in one word Brexit, yes Brexit did it, it cut the ties many traditional life long Labour voters had with the left. Expect more votes for the Tories, but even more votes for UKIP.
Brexit made many Labour voters realise that they did not have to vote the same old way just out of a sense of tradition and of old family habits, they actually woke up and realised that their Uni educated metro Labour MPs where much more interested in their own parliament careers than listening to their constituents talking about uncontrolled immigration, its no secret many Labour MPs think their voters are all ignorant racist knuckle draggers. Labour MPs have been neglecting their faithful but docile working class voters for decades, well London is a long way from Huddersfield or Gateshead.
Farage woke them up and made them aware that they could vote for another party like UKIP, and come the 2020 elections they will do just that, make no mistake about it. Labour voters are essentially sick and tired of three main things – the EU, immigration and being taken for granted.
Mean while the world view in trendy multicultural London is completely different. Corbyn lives in leafty Islington as does many of his Corbynista London allies and followers. Labour as always been more than alittle ashamed of any form of national pride or patriotism, all that British empire historical baggage makes socialists like Corbyn cringe and squirm in his shoes. After decades of being brainwashed by the left, the old slur of being ‘racist’ as lost all its meaning, it is now meaningless.
People have realised they do not have to be force fed into accepting a multicultural blob of a society, we can get to choose how we want to live in our communities. The Labour elite have lost their hold over their core voters, its like the spell has been broken. Core Labour voters are not interested in high academic ideals and campus student babble, they see what is happening around them in their own neighborhoods.
No more listening to stale pontificating academics and fanatical feminists preaching to us daily via our lefty mainstream media on how we should all be living, being forced to embrace multiculturalism, those days are now gone, the genie is now out of the bottle as they say. People have rediscovered their national identities and the left really hates and despises this, for the left they literally have fantasies, dreaming of a global UN style world govt. The left’s dogma is death to all forms of patriotism and national identities, and this is where Labour have really messed things up. Traditional Labour voters do not relate to that warped vision of multiculturalism.
I personally think the UK left is going to fracture into more smaller groupings, Labour will evidently shrink as it loses political power (less seats in parliament, less MPs) LibDems and Greens will remain small parties So in reality as the right grows the left will shrink. Labour will have to resign itself into forming left coalitions as its political power declines. Corbyn may say Labour have now over half a million party members, but thats all fine and dandy, but you are not going to win a general election with just half a million votes. Its the electorate stupid, its their votes that really matters, not the card carrying party faithful.
I am just glad the UK is now swinging to the right with a real gusto, we are getting out of the lethargic moribund EU and rejoining the energetic Anglosphere in trade via the Brexit win. Happy days ahead people. PS Keep up the good work Jeremy – destroying the Labour party from within, he is the right’s best secret weapon by far, but Ssssh don’t tell Labour, they haven’t figured that out yet.
