Here’s an important article in the Observer by Miles Savage, Policy Editor, citing remarks by Neil Kinnock. I never thought that I would ever agree with Neil Kinnock. For me, Kinnock always flew a false flag – built his career as a socialist but then the Kinnock family cleaned up with some gold-plated EU questions. But Kinnock is right to highlight that Jeremy Corbyn’s Brexit strategy is wishy-washy. The bottom line is Corbyn has a brilliant opportunity to decisively take the lead on Brexit, and give us a vision of his potential leadership of the UK. Unfortunately, Corbyn is still a protest politician, unable to deliver change – he prefers to sow disruption and wait for the revolution. Thoughts?
Here’s a thoughtful article from the Guardian which is worth a read. The article argues that Britain’s property-owning older investors want to preserve the status quo and don’t trust Labour’s promise of growth in the public sector. Respectfully, the article misses the point. The battlefield will be for the votes of those likely to inherit from their parents and grandparents. Conservative strategists will promote fear, arguing that a Far Left Labour government will be revolutionary, seeking to steal the wealth of ordinary people and their right to pass it to their children and grandchildren. The battle lines will be over inherited wealth. But evidence is powerful too – despite much promise, socialism has failed to delivery to the majority – it has pandered to its own privileged classes and elites. Thoughts?
