Following Farage’s Brexit Party cult coming out top at the European Elections, Nigel Farage reckons the Brexit Party will now storm to power at the General Election, err dream the fuck on Nige, a General Election is a very different proposition to the European Elections. People were mad enough to vote for a single-issue party at the European Election because bluntly the vast majority of people don’t give a flying fuck about the European Elections as reflected by the turnout being way below 40%, the turnout at a General Election will be far higher & there will be an expectation from voters for any party wanting to get elected to government to have their party platform feature more than one issue, there’d be an expectation for any party seriously wanting to be elected to government to have a swathe of constructive policies not just be backed by Russian Roubles in an attempt to turn the masses into Brexit precious Brexit Gollum like creatures whilst practicing stochastic terrorism, so things would certainly be different for the Labour Party then at the European Elections because Labour does have a swathe of policies & a vision of a better tomorrow.
No surprise that with Tory scumbags all knifing each other in the back to replace Theresa May as Prime Minister & with the Tories electoral collapse to less than 10% at European Elections & lets not forget their worse ever local election results earlier this month, Jeremy Corbyn was being opportunist in calling for a General Election, sure I’d be up for a General Election to put the boot into this fuck awful Tory government & particularly as I’m fed up with the Tory party exclusively having a say who will be the next Prime Minister & the wider electorate not having any say, yes I understand that’s the way our parliamentary system works but it doesn’t mean I have to fucking like it.
As well as calling a General Election Jeremy Corbyn has refused to commit Labour to supporting a second referendum, but before I start banging my head repeatedly on the desk because it’s support for a second referendum which I & the majority of Labour supporters would prefer to be Labour’s official policy, I think its more important Labour just comes down one side or the other on the issue of Brexit rather attempt to sit on the fence as the current policy seems to be, sure I’d not be happy if Labour backed Brexit but at least it would be a clear & fucking concise policy & having a clear & concise policy on Brexit is the point I’m making.
It does appear the issue of Britain’s relation with European Union is where Jeremy Corbyn repeatedly trips up, remember it was post the 2016 EU Referendum when there was last a serious coup to oust him as Labour leader because the Blairite contingent within Labour blamed him for the Brexit outcome of that referendum when in fact it was the fault of then Tory Prime Minister David Cameron. I guess it shouldn’t be any surprise that following the woeful results for Labour at European Elections there’s today been a chorus of ‘Corbyn must go’, yeah well I’m not one of those joining in with that chorus no matter how disappointed I might be with Labour’s current approach to Brexit.
When it comes to axing student tuition fees, renationalising the railways, saving our NHS, tackling poverty & tackling climate-change, Jeremy Corbyn scores top marks as far as a socialist like myself is concerned & I know these policies are also popular with the electorate, its just Brexit where I think Labour is failing, but at any General Election I’m not going to just vote for a party on the basis of one policy nor are the majority of the electorate, so lets not get stupid in the aftermath of the European Elections where the vast majority of people stayed at home no doubt due to many of them having Brexit fatigue. If the remainder of the Blairite contingent within Labour does encourage the chorus of ‘Corbyn must go’ to get ever louder & as consequence manage to oust Jeremy Corbyn & move the party back to the right, I’d permanently swap my vote to the Green Party & I know I’d not be the only one who’d do so.
