I apologise now, sorry if you have had enough of all my political postings, but I’ve decided I will say my piece and those of you who want to delete me off Facebook/Twitter are free to do so. I wanted to share some thoughts about why pretty much everything you have heard/read might be wrong. Why am I so angry about it? Because I can identify. I know what it feels like for your ‘colleagues’ to think you don’t deserve your job. I know how it feels to work hard achieve results and have that mean nothing. I know how it feels to increase popularity, but be treated like you are destroying things.
I KNOW HOW IT FEELS TO LIVE YOUR LIFE KNOWING THAT YOU HAVE TO BE PERFECT BECAUSE THERE ARE PEOPLE WAITING AT YOUR BACK WITH KNIVES.
Because I know how it feels, I will stand up for him. Because that’s what you do, you stand up to bullies.
So, here goes…
How can HUNDREDS of thousands of people be described as ‘extreme’ or ‘too far left’, could it be that politics as a whole has moved too far right?
Could this shift be traced back to when our free press became the personal plaything of media moguls?
I also believe there are many more people thinking,
‘you know, that Jeremy Corbyn seems different to other politicians’,
If he had had unbiased reporting from the press, the Labour Party would be unstoppable, which is exactly what the political elites, multinationals and media elites are genuinely afraid of.
A good idea is to follow the money.
All these money making schemes that successive governments have been delivering to the corporations and big business would disappear under Corbyn. Just think of the profits that will be lost. We are talking millions. All lost, if we as a country decide that, actually, rich people have enough money now, it’s time for us to share it around a bit more.
There are people who are thinking, we are a rich first world country, why does my local area feel like a third world slum, when I’m watching the lives of the super rich in London on my telly? Why are there so many food banks? Why are so many children now living in poverty, we had to change the definition of poverty, so that Cameron could sleep at night?
Successive governments have been chosen by the media. For allowing their backers to monopolise the media, so that the media, through the use of subtle propaganda, the use of just a few select adjectives, can send out subliminal messaging on a rolling hourly basis.
Those soundbite people who have got into the habit of allowing the media to spoon feed them their opinions, have simply allowed the subliminal phrases,
‘Jeremy Corbyn is unelectable’,
‘momentum is made up of thugs and villains’,
‘Corbyn supporters are 1980s Trots trying to destroy the Labour Party’
to morph from opinion to fact.
Imagine how horrifying it is for them all to see someone who hasn’t sold out their principles for expenses, career advancement or the promise of a lucrative speaking tour of the US. Someone who simply cannot be bought.
Stop complaining about these things and start pointing out to people how easily they allowed themselves to be tricked by a sleight of hand of massive proportions.
A government who have stolen so many public funds and handed over so much that belonged to us to private companies who are then free to bleed everything dry, so much that the entire system is collapsing and before anyone sees the crimes, they point at a group of vulnerable people or people just wanting to make better lives for themselves and their families and say they are to blame for our hospitals being at breaking point and our schools being too full.
THE IMMIGRANTS ARE TO BLAME – BLAME THE IMMIGRANTS
Instead of saying, hang on, you have cut everything and still added to the deficit, it’s your fault that the warmth of spirit has left the country, they look at the immigrants and see a threat, just as they have been told to.
It’s an easy sell really, pump up the anti-Immigrant agenda, make people afraid of them and make people believe that they are flooding the country. Truth be damned!
So instead of arguing with people simply challenge them when you hear them repeating the myths, for example, ask them exactly what makes Jeremy Corbyn unelectable?
How can you call someone who has won every election since 1983 in a culturally and economically diverse constituency, unelectable?
They cannot answer because the media have been very lazy, they haven’t told people why, they haven’t needed to, all they have had to do is repeat it over and over again. No one challenges it on TV, no one is challenging it in print, everyone in the media simply keep stating it as fact, not explaining that it is an OPINION.
The real fact is,
No-one knows whether Jeremy Corbyn can win a General Election,
especially not those political editors and ‘experts’ who told us repeatedly that Ed Milliband had moved to the left. Not those people who thought that remain would win, not those people who have got everything, literally everything, wrong since they correctly predicted the result of the Scottish referendum. Because that is when the wheels fell off their well oiled mutually beneficial machine. Because it politicised the masses in Scotland and they decided they wanted to rule their country.
That could never happen here could it?
Oh look there’s that ‘crackpot’ Jeremy Corbyn…
