And, as I – literally – can’t be bothered to write anything in the Far-Right Guardian at present – its sickeningly pro-Tory, pro-Brexit bias is more than I can stomach, friends – I hope you will forgive me for putting out another instalment of my good friend Saveed’s old pieces instead.
These three comments all come from this time last year when, as you all doubtless recall, the Referendum Campaign was – literally – in full swing, and the Leavers were busily emblazoning Hard-Right LIES on the sides of distinctly racist omnibuses about how, if Leave won the vote, a minimum of £350 billion would be spent on Our NHS every single day from 24th June, which as we all now know was a pack of LIES!
As ever, a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, is provided under each piece.
We’re now witnessing the tragic decline of David Cameron (article by John Harris, 2.6.16)
Friends! The hated Camoron is, as we all know, a Far Right Neoliberal whose views are held in total contempt by all fair-minded people on the Progressive Left, i.e. myself.
For the past 6 years, he has led the most Right-wing Government in British history, which has attacked and destroyed the lives of some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in our society – which Thatcher denied the existence of, and then destroyed – i.e. Our Junior Doctors, who are now forced to work 95-hour weeks on Zero Hour Contracts for poverty wages in Our NHS, which this vindictive Government is now totally destroying by privatisation, e.g. by forcing it to operate a totally unnecessary 7-day service, which it already does in any case, and which is the envy of the world and indeed elsewhere.
So, friends, what is the line that we on the Progressive Left should take on Mr. Cameron’s extremely eloquent case for Britain staying in Our EU?
To ask the question, friends, is surely to answer it! There has been a totally nauseating and despicable attack on Friend Cameron by the Far-Right Murdoch-controlled Monopoly Media, e.g. the woman in the Sky News audience last night, on his claim that Britain’s leaving Our EU would lead to World War Three, which is a typical smear that is sadly all too common in this particular world of ours.
What Friend David actually said was very different, friends! He merely pointed out that before Our Reformed EU was created, Europe suffered from two World Wars, in which millions of people died; and that if Britain were to be so foolish and reckless as to leave Our Reformed EU, this would almost certainly lead to another one.
How, friends, anyone can twist Our David’s words in such a way is beyond me! He never even used the term “World War Three”, friends! At this rate, his detractors will soon be claiming that he was predicting severe economic consequences for the UK should we leave the EU! (Which of course, we will, friends.)
Friends, it is time for those of us on the Progressive Left – and there are many of us, friends, e.g. me – to rally behind Our David and ensure a Progressive Vote for Our Reformed EU on 23rd June! Let us build a broad Coalition with progressive elements, e.g. our friends in NATO, the CBI, the EU Commission, Goldman Sachs, the City of London etc. to ensure a massive Remain vote, which will ensure the survival of Our Tory Government and a massive setback for Far-Right trouble-makers, e.g. Arthur Scargill, George Galloway and the Socialist Workers Party.
Let us not fail Our David in his Hour Of Need, friends!
Michael Gove attacks David Cameron over EU ‘scaremongering’ (report, 4.6.16)
Friends! Britain is not an island, other than in the purely factual sense.
Leaving Our EU would, friends, be a massive leap in the dark down a very slippery slope, which, far from being the Damascus Road en route towards the Promised Land, would lead us to nothing more than a Hard-Right pig in a poke buried in a deeply tarnished silver lining, which, when opened, would turn out to be the thin end of a very nasty can of worms indeed!
Let us instead, friends, think outside this particular Pandora’s Box, and push the envelope towards a Socialist Solution! Rather than turning our backs on our European Partners and spitting in their faces, we should work together with them to build a United Socialist States of Europe, with Britain, under Jeremy’s inspired and charismatic leadership, as its pinnacle – a sort of Venezuela of Europe if you like (or indeed, even if you don’t).
Leaving Our EU would, by contrast, represent a victory of all the most vicious and reactionary reactionaries in our so-called society – which, let us never forget, friends, Thatcher first denied the existence of, and then totally destroyed – e.g. the widely-hated Bozo and the evil Bullingdon Bully Boy Gove, who would be totally impossible to get rid of, other than by a General Election.
Friends, we on the Progressive Left will fight, fight and fight again to save Our EU which we love!
Dr Sarah Wollaston defects from Vote Leave to remain campaign (report, 9.6.16)
Friends! Friend Sarah’s courageous switch to the Remain Camp is a definite turning-point in this Referendum campaign!
Which just goes to prove what I have been saying all along: that we on the Progressive Left must rally behind Our Dave and other progressive elements, e.g. Our IMF, Our Goldman Sachs, Our NATO, Our CBI etc. etc. to save Our EU, which is under sustained attack by Hard-Right elements, e.g. Arthur Scargill, George Galloway and the Socialist Workers Party!
Let us put our footling political differences with Dave aside, and join with him to save Our EU!
My Blog as ever, leads the way: “All Of Us On The Progressive Left Must Fight Together To Save Our Dave, Friends!”
