UK: LABOUR LEADER TONY BLAIR PLEDGES TO CONTINUE PRIVATISATION
Britain’s Labour Party leader Tony Blair on Monday pledged to maintain the Conservative government’s policy of selling off state-owned enterprises and properties. The pledge marked the abandonment of Labour’s opposition to privatisation, strenuously pursued by the Conservatives through 18 years in power. …
From daily News Line in Britain, 3 September 2019:
‘WE MUST come together to stop no-deal. This week could be the last chance. We are working with other parties to do everything necessary to pull our country back from the brink, then we need a general election,’ Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said yesterday.
‘When a government finds itself without a majority the solution is not to undermine democracy, the solution is to let the people decide and call a general election. It is the people, and not an unelected Prime Minister, who should determine out country’s future. An election is the democratic way forward to give the people a choice between the two very different directions of our country.
‘… And in that election Labour will give the people a chance to take back control and have the final say in a public vote with credible options on both sides [remaining in or leaving the European Union], including the option to remain.’
Blair said: ‘Boris Johnson knows that if no-deal Brexit stands on its own as a proposition, it might well fail.
‘But if he mixes up the Brexit question with the Corbyn question in a general election, he could succeed, despite a majority being against a no-deal Brexit, because some may fear a Corbyn premiership more.
‘Some’, Tony Blair says. He is too much of a coward to honestly say ‘I, and war profiteering fat cats for whom I lobby, fear a Corbyn premiership more’. Tony Blair officially still is a Labour member. Boris Johnson is a Conservative. Johnson wants Brexit. Blair is, fanatically, a remainer. Yet Blair prefers the unelected Conservative minority administration of Boris Johnson to a Corbyn administration. Because Johnson, like Blair, stands for carrying on pro-Big Business austerity. Because Johnson, like Blair, stands for carrying on bloody neo-colonial wars all over the world.
There is solidarity between pro-capitalist pro-war politicians beyond the Brexit issue. Likewise, there should be solidarity between workers who voted Remain and workers who voted Leave in the 2016 referendum, to throw Johnson out of Downing Street 10 and throw Blair out of the Labour party.
Earlier, PM Johnson let it be known that any MP who votes with the opposition will not be allowed to stand as a Tory candidate in the next general election.
