And here is my latest piece in today’s Far-Right Guardian, in response to the news that a new opinion poll has viciously suggested that Labour may not necessarily win the next election by a landslide.
As ever, I’ve provided a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, below this piece.
Only a third of voters think Labour will win an election by 2025, poll suggests – Politics live
Friends! While on the face of it, these latest opinion poll findings are not entirely encouraging for those of us on the Progressive Left – and there are still quite a few of us, friends, despite the attempts of the Far-Right Murdoch-controlled Monopoly Media, e.g. the Hard-Right Guardian, to downplay our popularity – there are a few encouraging nuggets amongst the data, e.g.:
1. A clear majority of people questioned – 51%, in fact – believe that a Labour Government will be elected by the year 2040, at the very latest. And while 2040 may sound quite a long time away, it is actually quite surprising how fast time flies when one is engaged in useful and productive activities, e.g. marching against Hard-Right Brexit, which is not wanted by anyone, apart from a tiny handful of 17,410,742 uneducated bigots who didn’t know what they were voting for, and who in any case were taken in by the LIES of the Leave Camp, e.g. that notorious LIE about £350billion/day for Our NHS, which was such an outrageous LIE, not even Joseph Goebbels himself ever dared to peddle it!
2. As the Hard-Right Red Tory Traitor Harold Wilson once remarked, “A week is a long time in politics”. And as I myself so wisely remarked as recently as in 2010, it is surely only a matter of time before the scales – literally – fall from people’s eyes, and they realise that they have – literally – been sold a Far-Right pup by this totally unelected Tory Government, and that Socialism on the lines of that remarkably successful country, Our Venezuela, is the answer.
3. So-called “opinion polls” are in any case merely neoliberal tools of the 1% and Banksters, and cannot be trusted. As recently as May 2015, for instance, it looked as though Our Ed was going to cruise to victory in the totally rigged General Election, right up until the Hard-Right Exit Poll was viciously published at 10pm on Election Night, at which point all of us on the Progressive Left realised that we had made a literally fatal mistake in picking the Far-Right Red Tory Traitor Miliband as Leader, as proved by the fact that millions of Labour voters, disgusted by his fervently Hard-Right neoliberalism, decided to vote for UKIP and the Tories in protest.
So: “What Is To Be Done?” [Lenin]
The most important thing, friends, is for those of us on the Progressive Left to listen extremely carefully to working people.
We must let them tell us, in the frankest way possible, about what they think is wrong about today’s society – which Thatcher destroyed – along with all of their anxieties about the present, and their fears regarding the future.
It is only by doing this, friends, that we can then fully understand what they are thinking, and thereby put their minds at rest by explaining to them exactly how and why they are wrong.
And then, friends, we must totally smash this totally unelected Tory Government! Fortunately, this is not as difficult as some people might think. Because, by building a broad alliance of Progressive Left elements – e.g. Trotskyists, Leninists, Stalinists, Maoists, Anarchists, Communists, Greens, EU Commissioners and Our Junior Doctors – we can then mobilise the mass power of working people, e.g. students, to totally crush the widely-hated Bullingdon Bully Boy May and her vicious gang of criminally Far-Right sociopaths, i.e. this totally unelected Tory Government!
And until that happy day literally dawns, friends, those of us on the Progressive Left will forever be – literally – revolting!
