Opinion – Labour Party conference: Calmer than expected, but divisions remain | Europe | Deutsche Welle – John Gelmini

Dr Alf is correct because the next batch of local elections and any subsequent bi-elections will allow the public to play games.

The people who attended the Labour party conference are not representative of the public at large who are mostly Conservative with a small C and rooted deeply in the past with a real and persevering aversion to looking into the future or examining major issues.

Jeremy Corbyn’s Achilles heel is that he cannot carry this silent majority with him when the chips are down and is relying on the young and the innately mentally and cerebrally challenged to get himself into power.

Those who want to unseat him and plunge a dagger into his back like the smooth and untrustworthy Hilary Benn whose jacket remained buttoned for the whole of his Andrew Marr interview and whose body language belied his intentions,will wait for their moment like Brutus and Judas Iscariot and throw Corbyn complete with his suit and tie to the wolves.

Dr Alf is correct, I too remember the “Winter of Discontent” and the destructive policies of the Labour Party in the 1970s which saw most of my colleagues and anyone with sense leaving the country in the Brain Drain.

We learn that many of today’s Corbynistas were the Dave Spart’s and Trotskyite “street protestors” of that time and the legions of “direct action” troublemakers of today.

We are told that Corbyn’s policies will be paid for out of £140 billion GBP in unpaid taxes and that he will balance the books and at the same time a “bailout for the people” will be funded out of QE.
Somehow the same money will be spent three times over but the BBC in full left-wing mode questions nothing because they want this man Corbyn to win, so that their licence fee income can be swollen to bursting point and their top people paid even more money.

The country contains enough very short-sighted people who could be persuaded to buy into this sort of nonsense, so far from feeling a “warm glow” I feel alarm and trepidation because those behind Corbyn are clever enough to get him into power on the basis of the complacency which too many people on the right feel.
