The contemporary British political system can be easily defined. Tories are committed to big money. They believe that whatever is good for big money is good for the Brits. The Labour alternative presents middle class politicians who claim to know what is good for the working class while failing to recognize that actual productive work is virtually nostalgic and the workers haven’t made up a class for quite a while.
Britain now has a one party political system – The United Conservative Kingdom. It is hard to judge whether this one party rule is the result of a diabolical conservative plot or whether Labour has simply succeeded in sabotaging itself.
The Brexit Referendum was probably the most significant British political event since the end of WWII. The debate on leaving the EU was hijacked by the Tory Party. The issue merited an open cross party political exchange. But the Brexit was an internal Tory matter. The Labour Party had nothing to offer. Its leadership was primarily concerned with clearing itself of absurd allegations of anti-Semitism. The rest of the country was left to witness an entertaining Tory exchange between PM David Cameron and his potential challenger, Boris Johnson.
Although David Cameron was defeated and quickly resigned, the Conservative party, once again, won on every possible front. It is now the only major party around. The Tories orchestrated a quick transition of power and proved to the Brits and the rest of the world that British politics is delightfully boring.
Labour’s reaction to Brexit was a collective suicidal display, as is symptomatic of left politics. Showing no traces of self-respect, the shadow ministers arranged a purge of their own shadow government. Perhaps it was a desperate attempt to claim some media relevance. The ugliness of Labour politics was indeed amusing to watch, however it didn’t make the Labour Party any more popular. On the contrary, Labour proved yet again how irrelevant and detached it has become.
The Conservatives seized their opportunity. If Brexit was staged as an internal Tory debate, the Post Brexit era, under the rule of new PM Theresa May, presents itself as a Kingdom United. May, herself a remain supporter, appointed a cabinet full of Euro skeptics. May is basically telling her Foreign Secretary Johnson and her Brexit Minister Davis, ‘if you really want us to leave the EU, you better secure a very good deal.’
Meanwhile we learn this morning that the Labour party is not on the path to recovery. The Guardian reports that Jewish Labour donor Michael Foster* intends to mount “a legal challenge against the party’s national executive committee decision to automatically nominate Jeremy Corbyn in the forthcoming leadership contest.” I suppose that with Foster, Lord Levy and others Zionist Mammonites dominating Labour’s decision-making, culture and finance, we won’t see a true opposition party anytime soon.
*Jewish Donor Foster, a former showbiz agent who has given more than £400,000 to Labour since 2010, came to prominence during the last Labour party conference, after he confronted Corbyn at a Labour Friends of Israel reception, angered the Labour leader had not mentioned the word “Israel” in his address to the meeting.
