Starmer & Labour probably more Tory than the actual Tory Party

When the politics of New Labour finally died it left behind a legacy of inequality, insecurity, slogans, spin over substance or solutions, growing privatisation, failed military interventions, and a social security system that stigmatised single mothers, disabled people, refugees, and the poor and vulnerable as ‘scroungers’.

Skip to the present day and the neoliberal capture of the Labour Party has given a whole new lease of life to the New Labour relics and their utterly failed dogmas.

Anti-Tory sentiment is the only thing Starmer has going for him

Labour is undoubtedly a right-wing political party.

This isn’t a dig, or even intended to be offensive to the torpid Labour leader, or his supporters that *still* haven’t quite worked out that the only reason their messiah is polling so well is because 80% of the country detest the Tories (blue) with every single fibre of their being.

The recent local elections weren’t pro-Labour elections, they were anti-Tory ones, and voting for Labour was made just that bit easier by Starmer’s four-year-long impression of a respectable Conservative.

Britain is traditionally a conservative country. Labour is a right-wing political party that has been infiltrated by Blairite globalists. It’s not beyond the realms of possibility the two might just get along.

When Tory MPs, Tory councillors, Tory voters, and even Tory donors are giving their constituencies, wards, votes, and millions to Keir Starmer’s Labour Party you know it is utterly indistinguishable from the very enemy it was created to oppose.

After fourteen years of Tory disasters — austerity, Brexit, and Covid, to name but a few — it wouldn’t be unreasonable to ask Starmer why he is planning to employ Tory policies to deal with the numerous Tory crises he is likely to inherit.

Labour: the party of literal Tories

The Labour Party of Attlee, Bevan, Benn and Corbyn is now the Labour Party of Starmer, Streeting, Reeves and erm… Natalie Elphicke, the Tory reject with a thing for ‘stopping the boats’.

Elphicke — a genuinely nasty piece of work that has built and trashed her reputation upon demonising refugees and aid charities — should feel at home in Starmer’s “changed” Labour Party.

One Tory MP said of the defection: “I didn’t realise there was any room to her right.” Don’t they realise that the hierarchy of racism that is burning through the soul of the Labour Party has made the duopoly barely distinguishable?

There’s plenty of room to Elphicke’s right in Labour.

Come forth Suella, a place in Starmer’s cabinet awaits, once we hand over 100% of the power and the keys to Downing Street because they have been supported by less than a third of those eligible to vote.

If the subservient and sadly apathetic British were ever to realise the power of the people is considerably greater than the people in power we might actually get somewhere.

But the British people seem to enjoy being lied to by the elite. They thought Boris Johnson was worth an 80-seat-majority, despite being fully aware of the fact that he is a racist, divisive liar.

‘Things Can Only Get’… Umm…

And it will be no different when the crimson conservative Starmer — he of the ten pledges and countless U-turns — wanders down SW1A 2AA  for the first time as prime minister.

But this time it won’t be to the ‘Things Can Only Get Better’ song that carries the storyteller Starmer through the famous black door because things are only going to get much worse.

Imagine a carousel at a fairground. On each beautifully decorated horse sits a fully bought and paid for member of the unscrupulous British ruling class in the guise of a politician.

Some of the horses are painted in blue, some are painted in red, and if you look carefully enough you might see one or two painted in an orange/yellow colour.

But each malevolent, self-serving individual that is going round and round on the carousel is from the same right-wing, Israel-centric stock that’s ideological foundations are rooted in the enrichment of the elite at the expense of the poor, disabled people, minorities and working classes.

As soon as a rider falls off the carousel the British establishment have another rider that is ready to take up the reigns, and the colour of the horse that they are riding quite simply doesn’t matter one single iota to them because the replacement rider, Keir Starmer, is a safe pair of hands for the rich and powerful.

Starmer: morally repugnant, feeble and unimaginative

You’ve seen what happens when the wealth of the elite is in danger. At one end of the scale you’ve got Liz Truss. As soon as she started wiping billions off their hoards of cash through sheer incompetence she was out on her ear.

And then at the other end you’ve got Jeremy Corbyn. A very different type of threat to the one posed by Truss, of course, but after the unexpected success of Corbyn at the 2017 general election there wasn’t a chance in hell the establishment were going to risk him winning the next time around, and that was the end of that.

Everything now points to the Tory, Keir Starmer, winning the next general election. It might not be the whopping majority being touted by Starmer’s people, but it should be a decent-sized majority that will give Starmer the power he needs to carry on where the Tories left off.

If you plan to vote for smug Starmer’s feeble and unimaginative fraud of an opposition, don’t be too surprised when they turn out to be just as feeble and unimaginative in power.

An acquiescent punditocracy and their billionaire string-pullers are preparing for a Labour government. They know the game is up for the Tories, but they also know this morally repugnant incarnation of the Labour Party — funded by big business and the pro-Israel lobby — is no threat to the status quo.

Sure, the Tories are finished.

There’s no way back from the dead for them, so celebrate that moment while you can because once the dust has settled the incoming Labour government, armed with no more than spin and slogans, really won’t feel much different to where we are now.
