    Re: Lunatics of the New Labour state

    Labour may have ditched many socialist economic principles, an action which helped the party get elected after 18 years in the wilderness, but political correctness became its barbed replacement.

    In many ways Labour are still as far Left as the day is long. When Castro retired, many Labour MPs signed an early day motion praising him for his longevity in office. Harriet Harman also called him a 'hero of the Left' in a contemporary interview.

    I'm not aware of any Labour Home Secretary describing asylum seekers as scum (or the context), but I wouldn't think that was much beyond paying lip service to a public who are becoming increasingly uncomfortable with the recent breakneck changes in the demographics. Indeed, Alan Johnson has now claimed the Tories are muddled on immigration and would be unable to prevent the population rising beyond 70 million. I'm not sure he realises his own cheek.

    As for the gap between rich and poor, I believe the argument is misleading. Though many claim the gap has widened, it can also be said that the poorer are also generally much better off these days, even under Labour. The old cliche of satellite dishes on every rundown council house does have a tendency to ring true.

    I'm no friend of New Labour, either economically or socially. I too believe that it has sold out too much to the international market and has treacherously disavowed the concept of protectionism, much to the nation's detriment. And any party made up of people who claim the old patriotic workers' slogan of 'British Jobs For British Workers' is deeply racist can't be good news.

    You wouldn't expect me to accept much of what you say. I don't buy into the old "political correctness gone mad" nonsense. Political correctness is a cover-all term dreamed up by the right as a blanket term for all social changes that attempt to improve relations between citizens, irrespective of race, class, sex, sexuality or ability. Sometimes some people get it wrong (calling Christmas "Holiday", for example) and then the right-wing media jump on it to discredit all change. If it weren't for so-called PC, we'd still be seeing TV comedians referring to nig-nogs, coons and Chalkie; still have series ridiculing gays (Are You Being Served, It Ain't Half 'Ot, Mum); we'd still have public buildings completely inaccessible to anyone not 100% able bodied; we'd still have open wage discrimination between male and female workers doing exactly the same job; we'd still have Clause 28 criminalising any discussion of diversity in schools. What you call PC is what most progressive-thinking people call non-discrimination.

    There remain one or two Old Labour types in the PLP although what they think they are doing in such a sell-out organisation I can't imagine. Castro has many bad points; I've read Before Night Falls and was suitably horrified, but Cuba is no more repressive than a number of Latin American countries that the US and its followers are happy to support with their tax dollars. What it also is, is the country with the highest literacy rate in the World. It has the best educated population and best health service in Latin America despite the US blockade. Yes, political dissent is suppressed, as it is in Colombia, Honduras, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Venezuela. Some of those regimes are leftist, most right-wing US satellites. What's so uniquely dreadful about Cuba?

    Home Secretary calling asylum seekers "scum"? Jack Straw, 2001.

    You're obviously worried about demographic changes too. In 2001 7.9% of the UK population were of non-white ethnicity. Projections suggest that may have risen to 9.5% when the census is done in 2011. There are currently just short of 1 million Muslims in Britain. Breakneck changes? It depends on what your definition of breakneck is.

    British jobs for British workers these days means an end to multi-nationals buying up British industry on the cheap and then closing factories in order to produce goods under exploitative conditions in countries with few workplace protection laws, hence competing unfairly with British workers. On a day when American food giant Kraft, having given assurances in the run-up to their buy-out of Cadbury that they would keep the Bristol factory open, have announced that it will close. This is 6 days after publicly stating the opposite. That's capitalism for you, and it stinks.

    Re: Lunatics of the New Labour state

    I agree that liberalism (with a small 'l') has brought many agreeable things, such as greater tolerance of homosexuality or greater oppertunities for the lower classes. But I also say that the 'textbook' PC lunacy (for example prioritising sex lessons or 'non racist mathematics' above improving the catastrophic levels of literacy amongst our under-13s) pervades and distorts the entire concept of modern day Liberalism. I'm not saying obliterate beneficial social change, just stop the extremist proponents of it. And there are plenty of them. (They're the same breed who infiltrated the trade unions and use block-votes to foist changes in policy which ordinary members felt were extreme.)

    I never understood the fuss made by the Left over Section 28. It's only reasonable that children are expected to brush up on academic subjects and leave the politics of sex to their later years. Indeed, there are no few television programmes and books setting out to tell the world that homosexuality, especially when flaunted, is as natural and unperverted as heterosexuality. (And before, perhaps, you start to say that 'gay lessons' are needed to stop bullying, all I can add to that is to say that on that ticket you might as well introduce unique 'trainspotter lessons', in order to stop other bullying against 'geeks'.)

    (There's an interesting anecdote coming off the back of the Are You Being Served reference. In a recent documentary I remember John Inman saying he felt hurt when bitter gay lobby extremists wrote poison pen letters, saying that he 'put the cause of gay rights back 20 years'. He retorted by saying something like he got more credit from gay people who said that the well-loved Mr. Humpries character diffused a lot of hostility which many people felt towards homosexuals. Inman was always adamant that he always portrayed his character in a way natural to him and so it was hardly ridicule.)

    The difference between Castro's Cuba and other US-sponsored countries in Latin America is that Castro's the one who is always feted by various rabble-rouser students and hippy cranks, pleased to dribble on about his achievement of clean tap water (!) and high literacy rate (all the better to indoctrinate childen with). And when they, as you do, have to admit some of the oppressions a Communist regime entails, they rationalise it by saying 'well other countries do it'.

    On population, numbers are already too high. Britain is expected to support a breathtaking 75 million people by 2025 or so. As for demography, places like Slough or many boroughs of London are already ethnic-majority, culturally and racially altered. But despite that, for example, there is no end to the 'positive discrimination' policies which are often implemented to artificially increase ethnic minority public workers. (With much pressure also on private firms to take in extra ethnics merely for their bloodstock.) Usually, though, my position on the issue is that it's about 'space not race'. Britain is a small island with finite resources which are already being stretched by the current level of the population. 70 million is often considered, even by politicians, as the level at which supplies of amenities, food or living space may seriously denude supply (not to mention causing 'indigenous' public opinion to erupt violently against the immigration flood, given that illegal immigrants aren't quoted in the figures and that about a quarter of babies are now born to immigrants.)

    But I pretty much agree with you on your last point. With no industrial base to call our own, how can we truly weather economic storms as we did in our glory days?

    Re: Lunatics of the New Labour state

    And let's not forget that the immigration situation under Labour takes on even more sinister overtones when we recall the secret plan to 'rub the Right's nose in diversity'. This on direct defiance of Labour's own manifesto pledge to keep reasonable controls on immigration. In other words, the evil, nasty, jingoistic, racist, sexist, imperialistic, dominant and 'hideously white' British culture needed to be wiped out for the good of humanity. (Unfortunately, other cultures of the world also share other certain negative character traits which go strangely uncelebrated in all the diversity parades.)

    Re: Lunatics of the New Labour state

    And let's not forget that the Leftist Western Establishments, enforcers of the common politically-correct 'moral' 'consensus', take 'equality' to such batty lengths that they end up denigrating their own kind - just to preserve a tilted equilibrium which they believe is level:

    Is Racism Against White People Possible? - Blogcritics Culture


    It's as if the twisted trendies think that we're the only people in the world capable of being bigoted:

    BBC NEWS | UK | UK slave trade apology 'needed'


    Jo Brand says that it's impossible to be racist towards whites merely because we're still, even now, the majority in our own land. Well, that didn't stop the raging Left from squawking about white racism against the native majority blacks in South Africa!

    We're still supposed to prostrate before the world in abject tear-stained sorrow for the fact that our distant national leaders participated in a slave trade. But despite the fact that Britain was the last to join and the first to stop it, we're supposed to act as if we were the only people to do it. Indeed, Muslim slave trades still occur today, endorsed by their own religion, but you don't see the local Islamics pressed into a whirlwind of self-recrimination. I think they have more backbone than we to put up with that crap.

    In British schools white children are press-ganged into feeling guilt and sorrow for the conditions of the slave trade, as if the white European slave trade could function without the co-operation of African tribal leaders and heartless people-traffickers. But if anyone should be bothered by grief-stricken Reds at all, it should be the few thousand or less of us who were descended from the actual white slave traders themselves. The rest of the poverty-stricken population lived barely better than the slaves and so we should be left unharassed.


    But the Left has now become so peculiar that scientific quackery to diagnose 'racism' is in the ascendency, as well as other technology being questioned for 'racism' itself:

    These disharmonious, wicked, hypocritical Marxist nation-wreckers must learn that in order to have the kind of brotherhood of man they babble about, you must never put whites on an intense guilt trip to give normal people their own personality disorders.

    Indeed, if the 'Liberal' Ar***oles are so cut up about being whites in a 'racist' land, why don't they either move abroad or commit suicide?

    These politically-correct Red oafs couldn't get their moral compasses degaussed if their lives depended on it:

    BBC News - Complaint after Cherie Booth spares religious man jail

    Either this is positive' discrimination, or another case of letting aggressive people off the hook because 'they never dun it before guv. Look, he's religious an' all'. Whichever way, with each new shambles we see, the demented Left goes further towards bringing its own much-needed nemesis.
