UK Labour Party: Socialism on Steroids

See the source image

It’s really not hard to imagine this happening here. In fact, it’s quite easy to imagine this same bilge being spouted by any Democrat presidential candidate.

British Labour Party bigwig John McDonnell, pushing for a Labour majority in Parliament, says a Labour government will ban companies from the London Stock Exchange for “failing to act on Climate Change” (https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/11/20/climate-hysteria-labour-ban-companies-stock-exchange-failing-act-climate-change/). We are free to wonder what “action” would meet with his approval.

But he doesn’t want to stop at letting the government decide who can buy and sell stocks and who can’t. He’s also taking aim at a massive “redistribution” scheme which would supposedly do away with “billionaires.”

“No one needs or deserves that much money. It is obscene,” he says. Deserves? The government’s going to decide how rich you’re allowed to be?

Well, yeah–McDonnell has another plan to give the government the authority to fix wages and salaries. You’ll earn no more than the government thinks you should earn.

Who does he think he is–Bernie Sanders? Elizabeth Warren? Can anyone explain the difference between them and him? Can anyone even see the difference?

Freedom is fragile, and there’s always someone eager to take it away from others. Politics is one of Original Sin’s favorite playgrounds.

Beware all that free stuff held out to you by socialism. It comes with a very high price tag.


Thank You, Byron

I didn’t know he knew this, but Byron the Quokka has reminded me that the original Brexit referendum was held in 2016, and three years have gone by with the the government just spinning its wheels.

Theresa May became prime minister in 2017 and promised to carry out the wishes of the people and expedite Britain’s departure from the European Union. So much for government promises.

“You should’ve put that in your post,” says Byron.

“Don’t get a swelled head,” I reply. “I’ll turn you over to readers who think you’re boopable.”


Brexit Do-Over Coming?

I think she heard that.

It’s hard for an American to make much sense of British politics; but for what it’s worth, Prime Minister Theresa May has resigned, effective June 7, they’re gonna need a new one, they still haven’t figured out exactly how they’re supposed to secede from the European Union–and assorted UK politicians are clamoring for a “second referendum” on leaving the E.U. (https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/28/labour-diane-abbott-calls-second-referendum/)

They didn’t like the way the first one turned out.

Meanwhile, in the E.U. elections just concluded, the “Brexit Party” won big in Britain. Any  indication that the government is serious about a do-over is sure to raise hell. The Labour Party of course wants one, but we are told that there’s a major conflict over that within Labour’s ranks.

You think we have trouble with just two political parties. The Brits have a whole raft of them.

The problem is that when they held the first referendum, “Remain” was supposed to win–sort of like Hillary Clinton was supposed to win here, in 2016–so the globalists never bothered to draw up a workable plan to carry out the people’s wishes if they voted to leave the E.U. But they did. And one wonders whether the government ever had any intention of abiding by the result of the referendum. Globalists don’t much care for referendums that don’t go their way.

In fact, throughout Europe, the globalists fared very badly in the elections, with patriotic national parties regaining lost ground–enough so that the Red Pope is calling everybody racists and biggits for wanting to preserve their own countries. How would he fare, do you think, if they held a referendum on his papacy?

There is only one Person who has the right to govern the world, and that is Jesus Christ. Until He sets His throne upon the earth, God has given us nations as a protection against any power-mad cabal that seeks to dominate the whole shebang. A world government would be a global tyranny.
