Labour Party and the status quo

Labour’s core policy paper written by John Cruddas and John Rutherford – One Nation – emphasises three times in its opening three pages that these are times of financial restraint and difficult financial times. The seek another version of Blair’s Third Way and reject ‘orthodox Marxism’ and ‘neoliberalism’ preferring a rebirth of social democracy as outlined by Polyani.

Their version of the future restricts politics to the notion of parliament, economics to the idea of tax and spend, warning there is little to spend, and fails to address the underlying mechanisms of capitalism.

The bankers and gutter press will welcome this body swerve and encourage a vote for Labour and hope the rocky coalition will fall.

Labour are leaving themselves prey to the populism of UKIP because they have no radical solution for Britain. Neither do UKIP but they appear to be taking up issues of concern for working people while Labour has forgotten them. A mansion tax to fund the NHS is not the answer. reinvestment through nationalised banks of the wealth created in Britain and public ownership of key utilities, transport and so in would be a step in the right direction. removing the power of the establishment and banks through a written constitution would be another.

Liberals & many on the 'left' exaggerate differences between Trump & Biden; click to see what would make a real difference.
There is no effective “freedom” in a society in which working people live in poverty & billionaires live like parasites.

Biden opposed moves to rebuild Afghanistan, advising a policy of fighting terrorism in the country. He also opposed withdrawal of US troops, which Trump carried out.

@theworkerorguk Which international conflicts has biden spoken more violently than trump on? Evidence please.

Biden's regime will hold on to enclaves in the North East and work alongside Turkish invaders, continuing sanctions against the Syrian government. In general, Biden wants US global leadership, which he sees as being diminished by Trump's inconsistencies.

Biden intends to have tighter sanctions on DPRK, and to have stricter preconditions with respect to engaging on talks. The Democrat's president also intends to strengthen an alliance against North Korea. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-biden-northkorea-analysi/biden-on-north-korea-fewer-summits-tighter-sanctions-same-standoff-idUSKBN25G2QO
