Harold Wilson said in his 1961 Labour Party Conference speech
"The Labour Party is a moral crusade or it is nothing".
well one thing is for sure its not a
' moral crusade'
so what is it a vehicle to get people elected
no more no less.You tell them what you want
and if they can cobble together a disparate
group of competing ideas.To gain some votes
and office (not power) they will provide
what some of the people want. some of the time
"There go the people. I must follow them, for I am their leader."
is the Labour party maxim they follow now..wee shame!
I warn you that you will have pain–when healing and relief depend upon payment.
I warn you that you will have ignorance–when talents are untended and wits are wasted, when learning is a privilege and not a right.
I warn you that you will have poverty–when pensions slip and benefits are whittled away by a government that won’t pay in an economy that can’t pay.
I warn you that you will be cold–when fuel charges are used as a tax system that the rich don’t notice and the poor can’t afford.
I warn you that you must not expect work–when many cannot spend, more will not be able to earn. When they don’t earn, they don’t spend. When they don’t spend, work dies.
I warn you not to go into the streets alone after dark or into the streets in large crowds of protest in the light.
I warn you that you will be quiet–when the curfew of fear and the gibbet of unemployment make you obedient.
I warn you that you will have defence of a sort–with a risk and at a price that passes all understanding.
I warn you that you will be home-bound–when fares and transport bills kill leisure and lock you up.
I warn you that you will borrow less–when credit, loans, mortgages and easy payments are refused to people on your melting income.
He never warned us about
Labour getting elected
