Labour’s chances of winning the General Election have improved enormously since their offer of free university tuition, bringing in rent control, taxing the rich and nationalising the railways. You may scoff but Corbyn had the same chance of winning the leadership contest for Labour as Trump had to become President, but unlike Trump he is seen by almost everybody as a decent if misguided politician. In many peoples’ minds Mrs May represents the fat cats, Corbyn the little man on the minimum wage. If he were to sack Dianne Abbot his chances would improve by several orders of magnitude.
Don’t fool yourselves over a Conservative Victory. Unless you are looking forward to 16% inflation and 85p to the Euro.
Ah! Free University tuition – just what the country needs. Then we’ll have lots more graduates ready to try their chances on the unskilled job market.
What about nationalised railways then? Super idea! Create one big rail network dominated by union labour. Just look at how London has been crippled by the unions flexing their muscle on tube and commuter rail links. Imagine what this would be like nationwide. Nationalised water supply? Even more nightmarish.
Corbyn doesn’t represent “the little man on the minimum wage”. He represents the trade unions and they are no more than a pressure group who put the interests of their members above the interests of other workers while trying to pass themselves off as social justice warriors engaged in a class war.
