And here is my latest piece in today’s Far-Right Guardian, in which I – literally – support Owen Smith’s [It’s Jones, Lefty! – J.C. Oh Jeremy! Stop confusing me with all these names, and go back to your constituency and – literally – prepare for Government! – L.] very wise piece on why this totally unelected Tory Government is about to collapse, and will be replaced by Jeremy and his splendid team, e.g. Our John (he of the Little Read Book fame) and Our Diane, in literally a few days’ time.
As ever, a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, is provided under the piece.
The old Tory order is crumbling – it’s taken Grenfell for us to really see it (Article by Owen Smith/Jones, 22.6.17)
Well said, Owen. I agree with everything you’ve written, whatever it was.
Friends! As those of us on the Progressive Left have been arguing since as recently as 2010, this totally unelected Tory Government is – literally – totally unelected; and given the impending total collapse of neoliberalism, i.e. Grenfell, it is surely only a matter of a few days now till the hated May is driven out of Downing Street by the combined force of Our Day Of Rage protesters, whose opposition to Far-Right racism, e.g. that bigoted woman Duffy, is legendary.
A Socialist Alternative, friends!
Of course, at this point, Hard-Right elements always say: “But what’s your alternative”? Fortunately, friends, the answer is – literally – staring us in the face: Our Venezuela, where obscene wealth – indeed, any form of wealth whatsoever – has been totally abolished; and which, despite a few minor transitional problems, e.g. no toilet paper, food shortages, power cuts – which, friends, of course have the benefit of helping to combat dangerous Climate Change – galloping inflation, looting, street violence, etc., is surely a far preferable place to live in than Far-Right Austerity Britain.
And, friends, just in case any Hard-Right neoliberals are about to say “Venezuela doesn’t sound that great!”, I would just point out this unassailable fact, which applies to all failed Socialist states, namely:
Venezuela isn’t *genuine socialism*.
