Harriet Harman is the acting leader of the Labour Party.
She is also a total halfwit. I do not say that simply because I disagree with her recent failure to represent the poor, from the disabled to the
unemployed, from the hardworking and underpaid, to the public sector. She failed to do that, because she refuses to oppose the measures the Tories are
putting forward which will see huge numbers of innocent people worse off, for no reason what so ever.
Oh no, I do not simply take issue with that. I take issue with the way she justified her choices.
She said something to the effect of:
We lost the last election because we did not provide a reasonable alternative.
One must assume from what she said, that she does not want the Labour Party to get anywhere in future elections either. Of course, alternatively it
is possible that she simply has got NO clue about why her party was unsuccessful at keeping the Tories out of the lives of regular folk.
One only has to look at the numbers of people who voted, or rather the staggering number who did not vote, to see that something was seriously
lacking from the last election. Some might argue the toss over exactly what that was, but I believe that the main reason is, that the Labour Party of
this era, is incapable of attracting the voters it used to be able to attract, for one simple reason. It is no longer a party whose goal is
representing those who cannot represent themselves, who have no voice.
The role of the Labour Party is to represent the huge number of people in this nation, who have no power, and yet it has not been doing so for years,
since before Blair. The fact that the people of this country have no left leaning representation worth a crap now, is the reason that the Labour Party
failed to win the last election, and if Harriet Harman wants to leave the party in good stead for the future, she would do well to remember that a
Labour Party which fails the voiceless, will have no one to speak for it at the ballot box.
There is no rational left in politics in this country any more. Where are those who will be lead by scientists in matters where their discoveries may
be of use to the population? Where are the politicians who would rather die themselves than see a single down trodden individual suffer at the hands
of an uncaring state? Where are the politicians who do not believe that profit is more important than effectiveness, that people should be paid more,
and items should cost less to purchase?
The rational left is a non entity in this country, and it is in such a state because the Labour Party are no longer a party for the left, for the
workers, for the grafters and for them as have no voice. It is a centre right fiasco of a sham, and that is why they fail. If you agree with austerity
programs, the curtailing of benefits paid to the elderly, the sick, and the working poor, if you agree with the destruction of public services and the
removal of front line staff, then there is no way that your party will ever gain the votes necessary to beat the Conservative Party in an election.
Simply put, there must be an alternative, and right now, the Labour Party are not providing it, no one is. Harman is part of the problem, and so are
many of the members of the Labour Party these days. The Labour Party is short on those who have ever Laboured over anything in their lives, and
frankly, the results have been depressingly predictable. There must be change in that party, change which sees the monied oafs who populate it at the
moment, replaced with persons who not only represent the working poor, but ARE working poor, people who do not want to be paid more than the national
minimum wage for their efforts on behalf of their country, people who will militate against any effort on the part of special interests to shift the
balance of power away from the people of the nation, and toward its corporate entities.
If this is not done, voter turn out in this country will continue to be poor, because more than half of people will not be represented by any of the
parties in Westminster. This cannot stand.
