The fight is on. And it’s on the streets. With Parliament banned from sitting by the Prime Minister there’s only one way we can challenge the Tories propaganda blitz in the run-up to a general election. And that’s by getting on the streets.
The very best place to do that is outside the Tory party’s annual conference in Manchester on the 29th September.
That’s the place where Boris Johnson and his criminal gang will be trying to pretend that they have ended austerity. But that’s a big fat lie.
It would take more than a few pre-election concessions to put right the damage a dozen years of austerity since the great economic crash. That’s a dozen years of declining wages, rising poverty, increasing homelessness, of draining resources from the NHS and the education system.
No one in their right mind thinks that Boris Johnson and his cabinet of horrors has any real intention of putting life right for working people.
It would not be in the interests of Boris Johnson's rich friends to re-nationalise rail, mail, and essential utilities. They’ll never look after the NHS because they don’t need the NHS to look after them. They go to Harley Street. Their kids don’t go to the local comprehensive school, they’re all packed off to Eton and Harrow. And they don’t need a wage rise because they’ve already had one every year that is many multiples of the rate of inflation.
A complacent and complicit media will never report that there is not one nation but two, a poor Britain and a rich Britain. That’s the divide that matters, much more than whether you voted leave or remain in the EU referendum.
The labour movement in this country has to lead the fight back. The left has to lead the fight back…before the right capitalise is on the raw anger building up at the base of society.
