This article about the Green Party has been doing the rounds on my social media feeds the last few days, mainly I suppose as it’snot long after the Christmas/New Year holidays and people don’t have much else to do apart from slowly get used to work and generally accept the fact the general election campaign is going to go on and on and on and on until May.
These sort of blogs show the backward thinking of not just Labour, but all the so-called ‘major’ parties. Labour though are going to fight this election not on what they can do, but what a Labour Party once did and if they keep telling us over and over again that they started the NHS people might believe them that they’re not the party that helped start privatisation, or indeed speak about ‘harmonising’ the NHS which is management-speak for privatisation.
But snidely having a pop at the Greens and SNP means they avoid having to do what the left should do which is create a better, more hopeful vision of the future rather than selling the future of the UK as being marginally less shite than that under the Tories.Calling the Greens ‘Nazis’ as this Labour drone does isn’t a surprise to anyone that followed the Scottish independence referendum where the SNP were (and still are) called ‘Nazis’ by the sort of hypocrite that should make people vomit.
Sadly, this is going to be the level of debate til May. People however have the choice of playing the game and therefore ensuring that the same stinking system that’s kept people down for 40 years in maintained or search out facts, policies and ideas for themselves rather than rely upon tired old party political rhetoric to decide for them.
