Theresa May vows to ‘defeat socialism’ and Jeremy Corbyn’s ‘populist politics’ – at exclusive banquet for the very rich

Theresa May: “Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party are exploiting populist politics” [Image: Pool New/Reuters].

She just can’t stop putting her foot in her mouth.

I wonder that nobody questioned the wisdom of attacking the so-called “populist politics” of Mr Corbyn at an exclusive dinner to which only very rich people are invited.

Mr Corbyn’s Labour Party states repeatedly that it is “for the many” – but Mrs May made her speech at an event that was open only to those who could afford the £15,000 admission fee.

That’s more than most people earn in a year.

The “free trade” and “economic liberalism” extolled by Mrs May are Tory myths. She is taking the UK into an era of highly-taxed trade, thanks to Brexit.

And what about her “rules-based order”? Tories belong to the party of deregulation. Their relaxation of the rules allowed the Grenfell Tower fire to happen, and it is on their orders that Carillion collapsed.

Mrs May’s claim that a Labour government will cause a run on the pound is rich; she has started several, simply by making speeches.

Her claim about capital flight – businesses and wealth deserting the UK – is already coming true due to Brexit (so, again, the Tories are responsible).

And Labour’s plans for re-nationalisation will return the profits from water, energy and rail companies to the United Kingdom after decades in which we paid for other nations to prosper.

She could not have made a better case for electing a Labour government.

Theresa May has pledged to “defeat socialism” as she attacked Jeremy Corbyn for exploiting “populist politics”.

Amid an increasingly divided Tory party, the Prime Minister has attempted to rally flagging Conservatives by turning her fire on the Labour Party.

Speaking at the Conservative Party Black and White Ball on Wednesday night, May was expected to contrast Labour’s left-wing agenda to her party being champions of “free trade, economic liberalism and the rules-based order”.

    “And what about her “rules-based order”? ”

    She’s referring here of course to the American world order that was set up after WW2. An International Order that is being brow-beaten into nations; Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Lebanon, Syria, Venezuela, Argentina, Ukraine, and fought against by; Russia, China, Iran.
    BRICS want to trade world wide using Gold backed currencies, which would destroy this NWO and their attempt at One World Government.

    ‘rules based order’–translation for the ordinary working man – -One rule for us rich and one rule for the peasants.

    To be so scared of a reformist party , means a lot to the masses. The next step in 2020 is of great interest and makes living worth while.

    Someone remind her of the dramatic fall in Tory Party members, and the continuing decline in Tory voters as OAPs pass away.

    Tories that debated who would be the best leader out the two, chose Jeremy Corbyn, so if she can’t win over her own supporters she is has completely lost the plot.

    The real message from this though is that the establishment are aware their drive for supremacy is over, the public have woken up to the ‘American Dream’ and realise they are not part of it.

    When Tory supporters say that every time she opens her mouth, they turn off, it’s time Theresa went. But I do hope she stays as it will give those an excuse to put blind faith back into the Tories, just like they did when John Major took over.
