And I expect you’re all as pleased as I am by the news that Labour is going to vote against a “no-deal Brexit”, aren’t you, friends?
How heartening that, instead of backing Tory Brexit, Labour is now taking a totally principled stance of total opposition to its own Far-Right Election pledge to “support Brexit”. Which, by the way, was not a firm pledge because (1) it was not preceded by the word “Let’s”, nor (2) was it emblazoned on the side of a viciously Hard-Right and reactionary omnibus, which is the only sort of pledge that should be taken seriously.
Anyway, enough of this typically shrewd and in-depth analysis of the current political scene [Ha! – J.C. Shush, Jeremy! – L.]. Here’s the latest instalment of Saveed Miliband’s Greatest Hit-ettes. As ever, a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, is provided under each piece.
No country with a McDonald’s can remain a democracy (article by George Monbiot, 6.12.16)
Well said, George. I – literally – couldn’t have put it better myself, which is why I didn’t.
Friends! George has very wisely pointed out that – and I quote his words exactly, so that they cannot be twisted by Far-Right elements and used against him in future – “no country with a McDonald’s can remain a democracy”. And, of course, it logically follows from this that – and here I quote a totally reliable source that cannot be questioned, i.e. myself – “Only countries without a McDonald’s can be truly democratic.“
Fortunately, there are plenty of examples of such countries. Here are just a few: Our Cuba, Our Venezuela, Our North Korea, and Our Zimbabwe, all of which are as democratic as they are prosperous, and whose respect for human rights and individual freedom – which are in any case, friends, bourgeois irrelevancies – is notorious.
Of course, friends, not having McDonalds in a country does not, in itself, guarantee true democracy, e.g. the Hard-Right neoliberal racist Iceland, whose vicious refusal to join Our EU last year literally condemns it to the kind of hell that Britain will experience if Our Judges are unable to block totally illegal Hard-Right and undemocratic Brexit.
Nonetheless, banning the widely-hated McDonalds is an essential first step to achieving the sort of Socialist paradise that we on the Progressive Left wish to build, where people are not literally forced against their will to eat at the wildly unpopular McDonalds, as they are in Fascist Britain, which Thatcher totally destroyed.
Sleaford byelection: Caroline Johnson holds seat for Conservatives (9.12.16)
Friends! The Sleaford byelection result is actually very encouraging for Labour, despite attempts by the Far-Right Murdoch-controlled monopoly media, e.g. the so-called internet, to viciously claim otherwise!
If anyone doubts this, consider this:
In last week’s Hard-Right Richmond Park byelection, Labour won 1,515 votes – actually a pretty respectable result in a constituency that is – literally – 100% composed of 1%ers and Banksters.
Whereas, in the Far-Right Sleaford byelection, where practically all the voters are – literally – racist bigots, we won a full 3,363 votes!
That means our vote has more than doubled in a week!
And yet Hard-Right elements STILL claim that “Labour isn’t popular”! Talk about deluded!
Some people are going to – literally – get a shock when the next General Election results come through!
Labour’s woes dominated 2016, but Tory divisions are the real story (article by Owen Jones, 13.12.16)
Friends! Owen is – literally – correct.
While the Tories have been literally tearing themselves apart over Hard-Right Brexit, Labour under Jeremy has been quietly putting together some first-rate policies that will – literally – shake the Hard-Right neoliberal racist paradigm to its very foundations!
The key to all our Progressive Left policies is, of course, money – literally, lots of it. Because, as we all know, there is literally no problem in our so-called society – which, never let it be forgotten, friends, Thatcher first denied the existence of, and then totally destroyed – that cannot be solved by the application of sufficiently large quantities of cash.
Far-Right elements, e.g. the Hard-Right Liam Byrne, predictably claim at this point that “there is no money”. Talk about deluded! As all respected, objective and heavyweight economists, i.e. me, have never tired of pointing out, we can print as much as we need, in – literally – a matter of minutes!
And if by any chance, there’s still a shortfall, we can tax the Banksters and the 1%, e.g. the hated Blair!
Only by doing this, friends, can we emulate that great Socialist paradise, Our Venezuela, where obscene wealth – indeed, any form of wealth whatsoever – has been totally banished. Despite a few minor transitional problems, e.g. food and medicine shortages, no toilet paper, power cuts – which, friends, of course have the benefit of helping to combat Climate Change – galloping inflation, sporadic looting etc., which in any case have all been caused by the Americans – i.e. the Far-Right neoliberal puppet, Obama – this is a society with huge social solidarity, which is the envy of the world, and indeed elsewhere.
And until we have built Our Venezuela in Britain’s viciously Hard-Right and unpleasant land, those of us on the Progressive Left – and there are still quite a few of us, friends, despite the tragic passing of Our Fidel – will continually be revolting!
