Corbyn Can Win

A post or two ago, I predicted Labour would "lose the election while winning the argument."

Now, Labour is neck and neck with the Tories. Personally, from the perspective of Labour,  I still think that it better for the Tories to eek out a win  because Labour needs a full majority to do anything.  Before that,  it must purge its parliamentary ranks of the Blairites, those eyeless, brainless parasites.

The "Establishment"  is arrogant and incompetent, an ugly hard turd of rich people and career politicians and civil servants lodged in  the colon of the body politic, seeking to control everything and suck up wealth.  But just getting past the blockage a little is enough. This is a time for a full enema, not straining at the stool.

Movement seems guaranteed by the  relentless media attacks on Corbyn -- so contrary to the man's performance in interviews on TV, in Parliament, so oblivious to fact and reason.  The efforts of ht media to destroy public trust in this honest man have boomeranged --undermining the credibility of the media itself -- and   especially of the Tories.  "Liar, Liar"....

People who get their ideas from the morning paper or the telly over tea really don't like to read or think -- they let the media decide their opinions for them-- which is ever so much more comforting and convenient.  

But what happens when you have a hangover and your  morning tea tastes like warmed over piss and the picture frames on the wall all look askew?  And the dog just vomited on the newspaper.  The kitchen sink is full of dirty dishes.  

The Media, as the spokespeople for the Few, live in their own world,  a world created by them, for them.

Their world has champagne and vistas.  Yours is just a crashing headache.  

The Media prefer their world, which is he same one they use to sell you hopes and dreams - that is, that one day it might be yours, too.  In the meantime, they seek to suppress facts and the truth.

A good example is just recently when  the BBC declined to air the UK's no. 1 hit song, "Liar, Liar" which is about Theresa May. The BBC  claimed that they had to be "impartial".  "Had to be"?  There is nothing in the broadcasting code or their own rules that applies to banning a hit song!   Big Radio followed suit.

That's thumbing your nose at an entire generation, challenging them to "Just come out  and vote".  After all, while 70% of young people support Labour --they usually don't turn out to vote. But while it's OK to blow kids and their mothers to bits in Yemen which no one really believes exists-- you should not ban your teenager's music -- that's real.    Some things Jesus will not be forgive

Of course, it's stupid, too because banning anything, makes everyone want to hear it or watch it  -- including people over 25. A billion dollars of free publicity. And the  people who can't hear the song on the Radio, will turn to the YouTube Video which comes to captions and persuasive images -- much better than the song alone.


So, the Right are on a roll -- downhill into a trash heap.

Theresa May has also refused to debate. She did not attend the Leader's Debate.  By contrast, Corbyn who wasn't going to attend if she didn't -- reversed himself -- and did just fine -- as he had done in his TV grilling by Jeremy Paxman.

You have a Tory Leader who doesn't show up, won't debate.  Establishment Media that clearly lies and tries to suppress the truth.

Add to this the Dementia Tax and other measures that discomfit the over 65s who are traditionally Tory supporters.

And Terrorist attacks -- which are the predictable outcome of Tory policies. 

Liar, Liar.  The Media lie.

Liar. Liar.  The Tories lie.

Jeremy Corbyn tells the truth --and has a 30 year record of it. 

He also has a program is just pragmatic.  Hardly revolutionary.  Really, a return to the basics.  Eerily similar to the demands of the Levellers in 1647.

Now Labour has a real chance at government.
