1936 And All That

85 years today since the start of the Jarrow Crusade. Why are Keir Starmer's Blairites not telling us that it was at best a waste of time, if not downright counterproductive, as has long and lately been their line about the Battle of Cable Street, the eighty-fifth anniversary of which was yesterday?

Easy. Starmer's Blairites have never heard of the Jarrow Crusade. But they would now expel from the Labour Party anyone who participated in anything that remotely resembled it. So there is that similarity to Cable Street, at least.


  1. History began with Blair, it said so on the BBC last night.

    1. The BBC is pumping out the right-wing comedy at the moment, but Nadine Dorries remains implaccable.
