Yggdrasil - the u tube video with JC was rather interesting. Learning how he felt about the Vietnam war, anti-racism etc. Additionally, his justifications for re-nationalisation of what were public services, privatised by Thatcher struck a cord.
Blair’s government moved the Labour Party away from its traditional roots to help it gain more ‘middle class’ support to win 3 elections. The party then was not interested in a more equal society.
Personally, I’m pleased the Labour Party has returned to more socialist style policies. In no way is JC a Marxist as he believes in change via the ballot box (evolution not revolution). BTW the same can be said for Tony Benn.
The Labour Party is currently in the business of recruiting members of the younger generation using social media rather than the traditional press.
I’d like to remind everyone that it was Labour who introduced the NHS, put in place social policies for everyone, known as social welfare.
I would like to see less homeless people on the street, more social housing, better education for all and better care for the elderly. I’d rather pay more tax and have more social care for everybody.
IMO, gransnet used to be far less combative where vastly differing views on our society could be discussed without all the current unpleasantness.
Perhaps I’d better ? now.
