Blame Is Not A Game

54 years ago today, they blamed the villagers for Aberfan. Then they blamed the miners for Orgreave. They blamed the fans for Hillsborough. They blamed the residents and the firefighters for Grenfell Tower. And for Covid-19, they have tried to blame the care home workers, the Muslims, the BAMEs, and now the North.

Aberfan happened under a Labour Government. The last Labour Government refused to hold an inquiry into Orgreave, despite being led by MPs for County Durham and for Fife, and no one suggests for one second that Keir Starmer would order one. The last Labour Government also refused to hold an inquiry into Hillsborough, in that case as a favour to Rupert Murdoch.

In each constituency in 2024, there should be one candidate, of any party or none, who subscribed to this and thisThe complete list of those candidates would appear here, and anywhere else that would publish it. If I could raise enough money to be a viable candidate, then I would contest the seat where the most people had offered to sign my nomination papers. Please give generously.
