Poll shows most of us want to get rid of the Tories. Duh!

This should come as no surprise:

A majority of British people say the Conservative Party has made their lives worse, according to an exclusive new poll revealing huge public dissatisfaction with how the UK has been governed over the past 13 years.

The wake-up call comes a little further down this article, but let’s go through the figures first:

Asked by pollsters Omnisis whether the Conservative-led Government has made their lives better or worse since 2010, 55% said they have made it worse, with just 14% saying they have made it better.

This negative view of the Conservative Party’s handling of the last 13 years was shared across all age groups and regions of the UK, with little difference found between Brexit and Remain voters.

Our poll found little enthusiasm for the prospect of another Conservative-led Government.

Just 13% said they believed another victory for Sunak’s party would make their lives better, compared to 42% who said it would make it worse.

This compared to 35% who said a Labour government would improve their lives and 23% who said it would make it worse.

So most of us want a change from neoliberal Conservatism to a left-wing government. That would be the democratic choice. Right?

Isn’t it sad that Conservatives want to frustrate democracy, however they can – as the first few seconds of this speech by Tory Lord Cruddas demonstrate:

He was saying that younger voters would oppose Conservatives and should be denied the vote; voter ID denies the vote to people who should have it; and proportional representation would allow voters to have a government that reflects the will of the people as a whole, rather than a small minority.

So, he was saying, Tories should prevent these things from happening at all costs.

I’d say that’s another reason to vote them out. Wouldn’t you?

May is going, Cable is going, and is there going to be another Labour leadership coup?

Tom Watson: On his way out?

We seem to be in another period of apparent change, with leaders being replaced by popular political parties in an attempt to change their image.

The Conservatives finally plucked up the courage to backstab Theresa May on Friday; she’ll be gone by June 7.

Meanwhile, Vince Cable has announced that his own long-trailed departure as leader of the Liberal Democrats will happen on July 23. It seems he has been waiting for a moment when it seemed his party’s fortunes were improving and thinks that it has now arrived.

These are cosmetic changes. Nobody seriously believes that the new leaders of these parties will take them in a different direction. The Conservatives may get a more strongly-Brexiteer leader but their main policies of oppression against the poor will remain the same. The Liberal Democrats will remain an irrelevance.

And then I saw this on Twitter:


That would be very silly – and therefore exactly the sort of tactic the Labour Right is likely to employ. And it won’t get them anywhere because, despite all their whining about Jeremy Corbyn, we all know that their claims about him are not true. Consider Rachael’s tweet, below:


Of far more interest is the possibility that Tom Watson will be replaced as deputy leader after years of trying (and failing) to undermine Mr Corbyn.

Look at the latest news item to feature him – a claim that people who supported remaining in the European Union are abandoning the party. That supports the claim that “Remain” anger could be harnessed as a way of levering Mr Corbyn out, to be replaced by another faceless so-called “Centrist” with policies the same as the Tories and Change UK, no doubt.

It would be far better for Mr Watson to be removed and Labour to retain its current reforming socialist position.

His card has been marked for a considerable amount of time.
