Scottish Blairite politician’s Freudian slip on inequality


This May 2017 video shows a speech by Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn on inequality in Britain.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Email slip-up leaves Sarwar red-faced

Friday 27th October 2017

SCOTTISH LABOUR leadership candidate Anas Sarwar sent an embarrassing email to his supporters yesterday, claiming he would redistribute wealth “from the many to the few”.

Mr Sarwar is the right-wing candidate in the Scottish Labour leadership vote, running against left-winger Richard Leonard.

He is a member of the Blairite ‘Progress’ right-wing party within the Labour party.

Wealth going “from the many to the few” is exactly what the British Conservative party government is doing. And what Mr Sarwar’s ‘hero’ Tony Blair was doing, as admitted by Labour politician Sadiq Khan, and bragged about by prominent Blair sidekick Lord Mandelson.

Anas Sarwar is a rich man, with a multi-million pound stake in his family’s Big Business, which does not recognize trade unions.

He joined his fellow Blairites last year in demanding that new left Labour leader Corbyn, elected by the rank and file, resign. Mr Sarwar supports the Conservative government‘s plans to waste many billions of taxpayers’ money on Trident nuclear weapons.

So, this email ‘mistake’ sounds like a real Freudian slip.

The winner [of the Scottish leadership election] will be announced on November 18.

    IGNORAMUS Noel Gallagher branded Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn “a communist” yesterday before admitting he does not pay great attention to current affairs.

    The former guitarist of insipid Britpop bores Oasis branded all politicians “idiots” and reserved particular scorn for Mr Corbyn.

    He told online magazine Paste: “Fuck Jeremy Corbyn.

    “He’s a communist. And Trump’s a … a … I’m not even going to name him. But they don’t affect my life. Well, Donald Trump, maybe, because his views on the environment are pretty fucking scary, and that will affect my children.

    “But politicians? They’re fucking idiots. They’re economists — that’s all they are.”

    However Gallagher, who was a huge supporter of Tony Blair, admitted he is not interested in what is going on in the world.

    “I don’t watch the news,” he said. “The news is fucking boring.”
