BREXIT and the Labour Conference 2016
By Dark Politricks
With the UK political conference season upon us there has undoubtedly been news about BREXIT coming from the mouths of our politicians and leaders, in between drinking and partying that is.
Last week it was the Labour conference where it was Jeremy Corbyn's turn to speak about BREXIT.
Here is a Labour leader who has just won an even bigger mandate to lead the party after the botched coup by disaffected Blairites and MP's, upset that he didn't manage to persuade every Labour voter to tick the box to remain in the EU.
Why they would think white working class voters who have historically chosen to vote Labour would see the EU as a beaming citadel on the hill, when it has been their jobs that have been shipped overseas, their wages suppressed by bosses using cheap immigrant labour, and their children with the lack of housing options and overwhelmed public services, due to under-funding and over-use, I have no idea.
However many people on the left went and voted to leave the EU and this article explains why.
So the Blairites went ahead with their coup and lost.
In fact Corbyn increased his share of the vote to 61.8% and with the influx of new Labour members, the party is now the biggest in Europe with over half a million members.
Maybe the Blairites will now shut up and get behind their leader. They should be promoting the policies he espouses which it was made clear from the leadership debates that hardly any difference existed between the coups sacrificial lamb, Owen Smith, and Corbyn. You can watch one below.
In his conference speech, Corbyn promised to raise taxes on businesses to fund an overhaul of the UK’s educational system, promising employers they would see a return on the investment, with a future workforce that would be more skilled.
He also outlined plans for a surge of council house building funded by the removal of borrowing caps on local councils and a broad program of public investment with the reinstatement of some trade union rights.
Corbyn said he was offering “a new deal for rebuilding Britain”, including borrowing to invest billions in infrastructure, which he said would benefit businesses.
However, he said, he wanted to see business play its part in return, by paying more tax to fund a proposed “national education service” – a lifelong service from preschools to adult education.
So we have one leader willing to borrow money NOT for wars, or to pay for the massive increase in social welfare bills due to the lack of decent jobs, or to just give to the banks for a bailout.
Instead Corbyn wants to borrow to invest in the country, reduce our debt by increasing GDP by creating jobs and taxing the rich who let's face it, hold much more responsibility for the 2008 banking crisis than the millions of poor and middle class electorate that have suffered during the Tory austerity years.
Plus Corbyn wants lower housing costs so people can afford to get on the housing ladder or obtain social housing that has been kept out of the reach of millions for so long due to the lack of building by previous Tory and Labour governments.
Most importantly he wants to invest in education, especially in areas most hit by the migration that has come in recent years.
By increasing the nations skillset, he will put them on course for high paid jobs, and make Britain a desirable option for countries to invest in.
Maybe if the Tories had carried out some of these policies then not as many working class people would have seen migrants as a threat to their jobs, housing options, school places and increased hospital waiting times.
Maybe if the Tories had spent the billions they wasted on stupid wars in Libya and their undercover support of the FSA, al-Nusra Front and ISIS, who basically control all other rebel groups in Syria, we wouldn't have doubled our national debt since Labour last lost power.
In fact the national debt has risen by £555 billion since 2010 due to Tory policies.
If we stopped allowing banks to rob from us by borrowing from the Bank of England at 0.25% and then make free money by loaning it back to the public at high interest rates e.g 1,261% APR if you look Wonga, then maybe they wouldn't have lost David Cameron as their PM, and therefore the BREXIT vote.
You only have to watch daytime TV in the UK to see that the only growth industries seems to be Payday Loan companies who are taking advantage of poor people's need for loans and online poker, bingo, lottery cards and gambling operations.
This truly has become a nation where we borrow money at stupid costs and then chance it on the roll of a ball in the hope of getting rich.
You can watch Jeremy Corbyn's speech at the 2016 Labour conference below.
What do you think about the idea that we should be investing in our country to grow our GDP instead of borrowing money to fill the growing national debt the Tories have caused from their austerity measures?
