This video from Britain says about itself:
John McDonnell MP addresses the Hands Off The People Of Iran weekend school on June 14-15 about the anti-war movement and the political challenges HOPI faces.
From British daily News Line:
Environment Secretary Hilary Benn said: ‘Everybody in the [governing Labour] party is worried about the fact that we are behind in the polls. The question is what is the right thing to do, and I don’t think changing our leader is the right thing to do.’
In fact, there was a ‘coronation’ of Brown last year and no election.
John McDonnell, MP for Hayes and Harlington, who sought to stand against Brown last year [but was prevented by the party bureaucracy from being a candidate], said: ‘Most Labour Party members are looking on aghast as the Blairites and Brownites fight an irrelevant turf war.’
He said that there were ‘no policy differences whatsoever between the Blairites and the Brownites’, adding that it is their policies that are making the Labour government so unpopular in the opinion polls and their conflict was ‘like watching the crew having a punch-up on the deck of the Titanic’.
He went on to call for an election where policy differences should be aired and voted upon.
