New Labour (in power from 1997-2010) continued the Thatcherite dismantling of the British NHS, and introduced ‘charging’ for elderly people for the extra care needed
When Socialist structures such as the Welfare State and National Health Service (NHS) are initiated within a society that retains its predatory capitalist nature, then
It is a peculiar fact that the Labour Government of 1945 – which would introduce a Welfare State and National Health System (NHS), would also apply the far-right racist policy of rounding-up and deporting over a thousand Chinese people living in London (due to a sense of xenophobia and racist euphoria that had swept the land following the victory over Hitler), and ‘ban’ the Communist Party of Great Britain marching for workers’ rights on May Day 1947, and 1948.
Although the British rightwing and far-right political establishment thrives on violence and racism – using the working class to hate, murder and kill both within society
The anti-Union laws will be repelled, the elderly will nolonger have to pay for their care, and the odious ‘Academy’ system replaced with proper schooling. Jeremy Corbyn has a firm reformist foundation to support his political vision, as the British people have already successfully carried-out the most difficult of Revolutionary actions – voting to get-out of the rightwing, anti-Socialist European Union (EU).
Of course, the rightwing press immediately launched a vindictive campaign against Julian Clary for expressing his disdain at Toryism in general, and Tory policy inparticular. This was the very same press that thought it was perfectly OK for homelessness to re-appear on the UK streets, after being virtually eradicated by the Labour initiated Welfare State since 1948.
