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.
A new grass roots political movement is needed to represent the workers and take the initiative away from Labour and their confidence trick of claiming to represent the workers at each election. If Labour continues to take hard earned money from the workers via union dues – then it has a moral duty to represent those who funds its existence. The fact that Labour continues to take working class money but refuses to represent the workers suggests a very exploitative relationship. This situation has allow a far-right fascist Tory Party to gain power for a second time. This kind of duplicity has cost lives, and will continue to take lives.
It is a remarkable manipulation of State media the likes of which has not been seen since Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in the early 1930’s. The point of this exclusion from the media of working class protest is to allow the middle and upper classes (who have received generous tax-cuts at the expense of deprived benefit recipients) to continue to live in the privileged and opulent lifestyles unencumbered by issues of conscience. With such social devastation it is difficult to envisage how or why the Tories could win the next general election, but in a very real sense, their complete control and manipulation of the media makes it very likely when UK voting patterns are taken into account.
