In an outstanding, must-read article in the Sun, author Iain Martin alarmingly warn that Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell want street politics to lead to the overthrow of the economic order.

The article supports what I have been saying on this blog for some time, the traditional Labour Party is dead – the Labour Party was hijacked by radical Far Left activists who’s primary objective is revolution. For the Far Left, and indeed the Far Right, the end justifies the means – there is no place for truth and evidence – frequently, violence is deployed to supress alternative opinion.

Iain Martin paints a vivid sketch of the risks of what he calls a socialist economic revolution. I’m no expert on Far Left revolutionary thought but here are a few alternative threads to follow:

  1. Communism
  2. Left Communism
  3. Democratic socialism
  4. Left-wing populism
  5. Populism
  6. Trotskyism
  7. Maoism
  8. Anarchist Communism
  9. Anarcho Syndicalism
  10. National Communism
  11. Authoritarian Socialism
  12. Autonomism

From a historical perspective, here are links to overviews of the more prominent revolutions:

  1. French Revolution
  2. Russian Revolution
  3. Chinese Communist Revolution
  4. Bolivarian Revolution
  5. Cuban Revolution
  6. Greek War of Independence

My position, of course, is biased. Politically, I’m a conservative or more precisely a one-nation conservative. For a fuller discussion of my politics, open this link.

For me, Jeremy Corbyn is a puppet for the Far-Left, he’s a sham, a showman – behind him lurks dark forces, waiting to precipitate a UK revolution. Watch for false news and riots, that will signal the beginning…

Surely, it’s time to stop the Pied Piper of Islington?

Opinion – Back soft Brexit,’ unions urge Labour | Politics | The Guardian

This is an important read from the Guardian. It argues that 50 senior party figures have told party leader Jeremy Corbyn ‘to fight unambiguously for membership of the single market’ and now the TUC has pitched in too.

I still worry about the real power base in Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party – the party was hijacked by a group of far-left radicals and traditional socialist MPs have been left out in the cold. The influential Economist newspaper recently suggested that Jeremy Corbyn is nor really interested in Brexit, he’s more focused on domestic revolution.

Hopefully, we shall see MPs of all parties playing a positive role on Brexit. But I remain suspicious. After the election, Corbyn had the opportunity to bury the hatchet and invite former Blairite ministers to return to front-line politics – but he preferred to keep his team of radical lightweights.
