What's really scary..
is that JS (Could be Jacqui Smith - could equally be Josef Stalin) will continue to grant ever increasing powers to her tame Chekists & Apparatchiks and yet there will STILL be an astonishing number of seemingly intelligent people - excluding the obvious culprits, such as recipients (public sector/claimants etc.) of the state's munificence with our money - who will continue to vote for them on the misguided grounds that "Labour stands for the working man, innit?".
It doesn't, and hasn't since the late 1920's, when the upper middle class "intellectual socialists" subtly hijacked the party - viewed by some as harmless dilletantes, but in fact as hardline, repressive and authoritarian as any bolshevik.
The image of avuncular socialism has been fostered by keeping on board the occasional genuine prole - usually dim but controllable - who has been pure window dressing, and generally kept as ineffectual as possible. Previous Deputy Prime Minister strike any chords?
They have utter contempt for the genuine working class, where family ties were traditionally strong, and this self-proclaimed "intelligentsia" hates & despises the family unit, believing it to be a bourgeois tradition, diluting the first loyalty which they believe is due to the state and to the party.
The assaults on our liberties are a multi-pronged attack to eliminate the old-fashioned ideas of individuality, (ref: OWNLIFE, 1984) and the (by now) quaintly naive idea that a government exists to serve its electorate. In NuLab's Britain, this idea has of course, been turned around 180 degrees.
And yet they'll STILL get an overwhelming majority in so many benighted constituencies.
Since they have taken "1984" as a training manual/instruction book, perhaps at least they will be honest in one area, and return to Mr Orwell (real name Blair - there's irony) for their next election slogan:-
"If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever."
