15 Years On

15 years ago today, there was the largest demonstration that Britain has ever seen. It was addressed by Jeremy Corbyn. Sadly, everything has come true that was predicted by those who marched against the Iraq War, and many others of us who were unable to join them.

That includes the prediction that there would be further such misadventures, every one of which has also been opposed by Corbyn, as he had also opposed their precursors in Kosovo and Afghanistan. In all fairness to Theresa May, while she has failed to oppose any of those wars, those who say that she is the worst Prime Minister in living memory need to face the fact that she has yet to start any, either.

Always at the front of the Start the War Coalition, however, is The Sun, which today indicated that the Conservatives were down to a core vote strategy, the core in question being people who thought that Czechoslovakia still existed, and who still used the word "Commie".

Our governing party clearly believes that if the 1970s National Frontists and private militia types in the nursing homes are not going to vote for it next time, then no one is. But the Conservatives are wrong about that. There is going to be another hung Parliament. You know what you have to do, brothers and sisters. You know what you have to do.
