Jeremy Corbyn and the Prime Minister are getting into a pickle by the lack of judgement that is coming in from their policies. Politics as usual then.
Corbyn is getting into a mess on his PFI’s – no detail – and May is tangled up in a right shambles on how much she is prepared to give the EU. All is fun on the seats of Westminster then! Nothing changes.
How much Corbyn’s policies are going to cost the taxpayers no-one knows – there are some 700 odd PFI contracts and as McDonnell says, all will be brought back into the public sector, nationalisation again, if this suits then vote for it. He’s after nationalisation full blown and you has better not make a mistake about it. Heaven knows where he’s going to get the money from but never mind about that, although he says in the same breath that he’s not going to get the country into debt again!!!!
Politics is a funny game, isn’t it?
So, all the parties (the Lib Dems are in the EU and that’s that) are placing policies before our eyes without much substance. Fair enough, if you are a political mandarin. Not so fair if you are the man or woman in the street or catching the Clapham Omnibus. The politicians just sit there and decide our lives and we just sit back and take it all, all is fair in love and war.
I thought of going into politics once (I’m not going to tell you what party!) and upon a meeting with these holier than thou characters I decided to give it a miss. I was too much of a lying, conniving, scurrilous lout (according to the trolls), so I ended it there. But seriously, I did think of it and I did go for a meeting – honest!
Politics can be a fine occupation, in the right hands. Everyone has a difference of opinion and the fire arises when opinions get above themselves and full of steam. This is the problem with a political standpoint. Have your view by all means, but keep it polite and reasonable. Anything else is just plain deadly and decidedly off-putting.
Momentum is a party of Marxist and young, hard left followers – it follows Labour. It’s entitled to its opinion but it should exercise a degree of balance. Like it or not the British public is not of the hard left persuasion, left maybe, realise this and you might be more successful.
The British public is not too far right and not too left. The politicians need to be aware of this in their policy making deliberations and before I go, to hell with their young advisers – and by young, I mean anyone under 40. I wouldn’t give them the time of day!
