Jim Carroll BS: UK thread, Politics and political (1525* d) RE: BS: UK thread, Politics and political 03 Jul 20

Labour made its appearance at a time when changes were desperately needed - it was a 'left' party with 'left' principles
Those left(ish) principles saw Britain though the devastation left behind the war and helped rebuild Britain
They gave people homes and created a health service envied by the world, it evened our some of the inequalities by giving the working person a voice in their place of work - the improvements that took place were down largely to 'lefty' principles - and there were plenty of them
Gradually they were whittled away by the right wing policies and coplromised being demanded here
The right wing sellouts by Wilson and Castle and those who followed them turned Labour into an Establishment Party - "Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition" (and occasionally, Government)
Right Wing New Labour plumbed the depths by co-operating with a right-wing American President and entering into the massive 'WMD' con-trick which has committed Britain to decades of war and a totally unmanageable wold-wide refugee crisis

Your right-wing takeover of the Labour Party has betrayed it's ideals (which you openly sneer at Baccie) and it has betrayed the very reason for its existence
Whenever it has betrayed those ideals it has left a smear on the name of Labour - the worst was the most recent was administered by Blair - that's won't be forgotten until young people are brought home from killing and dying
That's 'the right's' most memorable contribution to Labour's history

Your right-wing experiment has betrayed the Labour Party - about time to return to core values, I think

I really did think we'd seen the last of being referred to as a "leftie" as a term of abuse in these arguments - a nasty dose of deja vous, it would appear - think on't
