The politics we need: former Labour policy director on Keir Starmer – and the Tories

Last Updated: February 18, 2023By Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

This is a video worth watching.

Former Labour Director of Policy Andrew Fisher has provided his opinions on Keir Starmer’s decision to unilaterally ban Jeremy Corbyn from standing for election as a Labour candidate again, on Starmer’s Labour generally, and on UK politics and the timidity of its politicians.

It’s a meaty interview, and you should probably bookmark it so you can dip in and return to it, because it is three-quarters of an hour long.

But it is well worth your time:

    Andrew Fisher, being head of Labour policy, ignored the Grey Vote and so also sabotaged Corbyn.

      Does that invalidate any of the things he says here?

    The point he is missing is why Starmer is doing what he is doing and his associations with ultra establishment organisations like the Tri – Lateral- Commission. He also misses what the Neo-Liberal agenda is, transferring wealth and power away from ordinary people into the hands of the 1%. Corruption plays heavily into sustaining that agenda. How did Thatcher and Blair become multi Millionaires?

    Blair and currently Streeting with the NHS promise to use the private sector to bring down waiting lists, when he knows the same doctors and nurses from the NHS will be used to deliver it. Blair refused to renationalise Rail Track when trains were crashing and derailing, under the guise that we couldn’t afford to do it, then when the death toll was mounting it became embarrassing, and forced by circumstances to renationalise it. Suddenly found money he said we didn’t have.

    There appears to be a certain naivety in politics today, that they don’t understand modernisation as expressed by Blair and most Labour MPs is code for Neo-Liberalism, and those not on message have to be destroyed, like Jeremy Corbyn was.

    In short all that is holding this country back is the lack of political will, we are country with its own currency, that creates money out of thin air, and so as Blair proved, and along with the banking crash, we can suddenly find the money when we want to, but not for public expenditure, because Neo-Liberal politicians work for the interests of the 1%.
