Well I am neither a Lenninist, Stalinist or Maoist (god forbid dirty little monster had syphalus and had bus loads of young virgins driven to his
home to be raped as his chinese doctors told him it would be good for him), or indeed Communist of any ilk.
Communism was a repressive, anti freedom, prison state regime to be nice about it, it abused and twisted Socialist idiology to justify thing's which
were never socialist.
How did Stalin become Emperor of Russia, that is what he was in reality.
Socialism ENGLISH style is democracy with fairness bolted on, the rich do not think it is fair but everyone else does, just like the rich think it
fair to work people to death with no employment right's, no safety protocol's and to live as wage slaves but the rest of us do not think that is right
or fair at all.
PRE-BLAIRITE labour was the real British party of Socialism.
Most Labour votors want it back but most well off NEW LABOUR (BLAIRITE) MP's are from the upper class and do not want that OLD (REAL) LABOUR Back.
The point is that Idiologically I am socialist, not Marxist to the nth Degree but Democratic Socialist or Christian Socialist as they stand for
exactly the same thing, Christian socialist of course being my personal choice but as they do not have a foothold in the UK as a concept party Labour,
Left wing which is extremely far right of communism is my choice.
They stand of Regulated Capitalism, socialism in the form of Social housing, you can own your own home, buy it etc but the concept is that no one
should be homeless, no one should have to go to food bank's and we should have access to free medical care, a safety net and state pension's.
But guess what let's start with state pension's, Capitalism does not want that, they want the money in THERE private hedge fund's not the State, A
good health service is bad for business, why give it free when you can charge them and if they die you get to keep there pension contributions anyway,
housing, why force rent's down when your hedge fund can buy up housing stock and the housing crisis is good for business as it increased demand and
you can increase your rent's even more.
Get the picture of what we are facing in the UK because of Right wing politics, hedge fund investors with offshore bank account's for
