Labour Poster – Livermead (Torquay) 28.5.2017

When the dust settles on the Labour internecine fighting – essentially a fight between Tory-minded Blairites and Socialist minded Corbynistas – the stark reality that shines through the battle smoke is that for the Working Class in Britain, there is no other alternative at the ballet-box. The Tories and LibDems will always watch-out for the middle class, and when Socialist or Communists candidates stand – the biased bourgeois media ensures they are excluded, demonised, or otherwise side-lined. Jeremy Corbyn is a Socialist who will stick by his word if elected. This is not like the rightwing Tony Blair – who basically lied his way into Downing Street (in 1997) pretending to represent the workers, before finally revealing his Tory agenda. In reality, this is the last chance for the British Working Class to collectively ‘save’ the British ‘Socialist’ way of life – particularly now that the UK has left the EU – and nolonger has to continue to privatise all public services. If Jeremy Corbyn can earn five years in Parliament, life will get better for everyone, the NHS will be re-invigorated, and the Welfare System re-built. Food Banks will disappear, and homeless people will be given shelter. Furthermore, our children’s education will be taken-out of the hands of unscrupulous private businesses, and once again put back into rational State control. I am calling on the Working Class to unite around Jeremy Corbyn for the duration of the General Election campaign, and to assist and support any and all measures required to get the Labour Party voted into Parliament. Regardless of what some people say (both within and outside of Labour), the Labour Party still flies the ‘Red Flag’, and regardless of how we all represent the political left, we must work together against the ‘Class Enemies’ of the Tories and LibDems, keep them out of Parliament, and repair the damage that has been done since 2010. Yes, democracy on the left is important, and yes, the Labour Party is responsible to us – the voters – for everything said and done in its name, but if we can get Jeremy Corbyn into power, then the rightwing of the Labour Party will be legally dealt with, and Labour will once again truly represent the voice of the people. I do not exclude or forget my Socialist and Communist friends who have dialectically criticised Labour in the past (as I have done myself), but what are we actually doing? We are criticising the rightwing that has infiltrated Labour and influenced all kinds of anti-leftist, and imperialist activities over the decades (and to varying degrees). We have the power in our hands to put a true Socialist in power who can carry-out the required reforms to steer the Labour Party firmly back on its leftist course. The Labour Party is needed, because even Karl Marx stated that the British Working Class are slow to rise, and probably prefer ‘voting’ over any other method of governmental change (although, of course, mass strikes and protests have also been known to work in the past!). Whatever differences colleagues on the left have – we need to put these aside for the moment, gather together our voting forces, and show the world what the British Worker can do! It really says something about the political climate, when a generally Tory and rightwing part of Torquay – Livermead – which usually sees Tory, UKIP and even BNP placards displayed with pride in the middle class windows, doorways, and gardens – that in prominent view a ‘Vote Labour’ placard has appeared in the garden of a big house with at least three cars parked outside! Let’s hope that the petty bourgeoisie will see the injustice of the last 7 years of Tory mis-rule, and out of a sense of ‘noblesse oblige’, join us in voting in a Socialist Labour Party, after-all, I do not know many middle class people who are happy having to now pay for health-cover, unemployment cover, and the threat of school fees! The middle classes benefit quite extensively from Socialism – I hope they remember this at the ballet-box on June 8th!
