The Tories may well think that due to Labour’s own in-fighting, Theresa May will win the next election by ‘default’, and to do this, they are copying John Major’s style of an apparently relaxed exterior, whilst the Tory government carried-out the ruthless class-led politics of further enriching the middle classes at the perpetual expense of the workers.
In Sutton, it is not uncommon at the Robinhood Lane NHS surgery, for doctors to ‘refer’ a certain type of patient to ‘private’ hospitals in the area to receive ‘private’ treatment at the NHS expense. This diverts legitimate NHS patients ‘away’ from NHS hospitals, Clinics and Outpatients facilities that would usually deal with these medical issues (free at the point of use), if they were not being stripped of resources during the final phases of an NHS privatisation drive – established in law in 2012 by the Tory and LibDem Parties during their time of Coalition government (2010-2015). This process of referring NHS patients to ‘private’ healthcare facilities assists the ‘closing down’ of the NHS, as it gives the false impression that NHS provision is not required across the nation, and that everyone either ‘prefers’ or can ‘afford’ private medical cover (which in many cases has been proven deficient or sub-standard – leaving the NHS to clear-up the subsequent mess). The fact that NHS patients are diverted out of the NHS system in this manner is being ‘packaged’ across the UK as ‘choice’ within the NHS, when in fact it is the exact opposite – NHS patients have ‘NO’ choice if they care about their own health, over than to abandon the NHS due to a lack of NHS resources. Furthermore, evidence suggests that NHS doctors are only referring those NHS patients who are ‘young’ and in ‘full-time’ employment to ‘free’ private care, sentencing those who do not fall into these categories to a slow decline in their health and diminishing of life expectancy.
Jeremy Corbyn has been elected as Labour Party Leader in the wake of the Conservative and Libdems policy of ‘Austerity’, which has been nothing more than an excuse to enrich the middle class at the expense of the working class. The question is ‘why?’ has the Labour Blairite neo-conservative over-lords (who are in the pockets of big business) allowed this to happen? I suspect that a trap has been set by the Blairites to finish off Socialism within the Labour Party once and for all. The thinking is probably something like this; allow a token Socialist to take control of the Labour Party – but in such a manner that does not allow its big business infrastructure to be compromised through Socialistic reform – let him announce a Socialist Agenda, and then watch him lose the next General Election. Once the election is lost, the Blairites can announce to the British people that Socialism is well and truly dead and that the Labour Party must now pursue the more level-headed, middle of the way (i.e. ‘middle class’) direction – in other words ‘Blairite Red Toryism’.
The masses of people who live on housing estates of Torbay are hidden away from the view of the tourists on the seafront, and live in abject poverty. As they have no voice – they appear not to exist. This non-existence is designed to keep a stock of potential workers handy should the need arise – whilst simultaneously preventing them from gaining an education and accessing adequate employment and political power. Although there are obviously more workers in Torbay than the bourgeoisie (i.e. middle class), they appear not to exist because they lack any means to access the bourgeois system.
What happened in Torquay today was unique and revolutionary! Although the hundreds that gathered my not have seen eye to eye on every facet of political ideology, there was a general consensus that what is going on in the UK is morally and politically wrong. Why should the Working Class be punished for the mistakes made by the greedy bankers? There are Tory enclaves all over the UK – signified by a minority of small-minded and petty people that keep the majority Working Class in their respective areas both culturally and economically impoverished. In this general state of exploitation and oppression, many through a lack of basic education, turn to the far-right, become embroiled in pointless crime, and descend into highly negative modes of existence.
The Liberal Democrats have blood on their hands through the vicious benefits cuts they supported and condoned, which have led to the death of at least 10,000 Disabled People in the UK, and the terrible impoverishment of millions of others. Of course, as the NHS has been sold off to the American profiteers, UK citizens nolonger have the facilities to ensure their lifelong health and safety.
