How do the keyboard swindlers explain this? It is very hard indeed to find a more difficult scenario for the Labour Party to overcome than that which existed at yesterday’s Oldham West By Election, caused by the death of Michael Meacher who was a much loved and very talented MP. The forces lined up against Labour, ‘some shamefully from its own side’ were enormous, malevolent and mainly driven by a desire to tear down Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership. Make no mistake about it, to the right wing establishment in the UK as well as the time serving careerists in his own party Mr. Corbyn is a very dangerous man. In Corbyn’s Labour Party refreshingly, your name, your wealth and your connections mean nothing. Ability, hard work and a Socialist ethic have become the ticket to power and influence. The changes have brought about a welcome upheaval in the party ranks, our numbers have grown enormously making us the party with more members than all the other parties put together and that explosion in the membership coincided with the election of the left wing Socialist Leader Jeremy Corbyn, thus making any accusation of Labour not being a Socialist Party sound absurd.
Oldham West was a triumph for the people over their hidebound capitalist exploiters, the Tories, The Libdems, UKIP and the SNP, as well as the right wing press which now shamefully includes The Guardian. To win 62% of the vote against such hostility was a remarkable achievement and it serves to remind us that the UK is a Socialist country. As is now the norm we have the usual smears being thrown around by the opponents of Labour when we win. UKIP cry foul and bad losers are complaining about bullying and intimidation over the Syrian bombing vote, some MP’s clearly see their positions as precarious based on the fact that the massive surge in membership was down to Corbyn’s Leadership victory and they have been doing what they can to bring him down, there can be no doubt that the vast majority of Labour Party members are opposed to bombing Syria and they have a voice. For those Labour members who are new I would urge you to check the rules about de-selection of sitting MP’s. This is a long standing procedure which is perfectly legal, democratic and is the very essence of democracy. As far as the nasty and vicious emails, texts and threats are concerned about Syria I would urge people to consider which political party has the worst by far reputation for such behaviour, that is the SNP. Now consider whether the notorious SNP Cybernats would send such filth to Labour MP’s who voted for bombing, is that difficult to answer. Perhaps those who intend to investigate these matters should be looking North.
