One thought on “Socialism: old debates and new demands – A MUST READ

  1. One just has to look at the very basics of life and family during the 13 years of Blue Labour [ now Dark Blue Labour ] Council Housing,a 46,000 council housing deficit when they got the electoral boot in 2010, Sheltered Housing in 2003 they removed the resident wardens, causing untold hell for almost a million viulnerable elderly, sick and disabled people, the legacy of that is felt to this day, it just doesnt get the press, bodies being discovered days weeks later, assessments a tick box exercise , dementia increased, bed blocking due to no carers the endless list of torment, Youth Unemployment rose to nearing a million, Brown helped push it higher, , over 50,s unemployment, well it was a case of who are they? child poverty it was more all mouth and not a great deal of substance in reaching their “target” , one could go on and on, the reality is E,ds Dark Blue Labour of Millionaires, Expenses cheats [ thieves and fraudsters for jack and jill public who go to court ] Posh, Privileged, Private School Elite,Careerist , Elitist, Self-Serving, Unrepresentative of their Constituents, out of touch, dont do Socialism that requires a Social Conscience which they like the other Two Tory Parties are Bereft of.
