Acceptable In The Eighties?

Nurses, postmen and railway station ticket office staff who find themselves branded the enemy within and the agents of Vladimir Putin, never mind Border Force workers whom the Government is telling the world fall into those categories, should consider that earlier today, two coal-fired power stations had been put on standby. There is plenty of this winter left to go, and permission has just been given for a new coalmine. The seal has been broken. Only the ridiculous Labour Party is holding out against what, bang on schedule at nearly 10 years after the death of Margaret Thatcher, is the inevitable return to coal.

Quite the Eighties Revival is going on, from Birgit Malsack-Winkemann's Nancy Reaganesque consultation of astrological charts in order to determine the precise day of the Reichsbürger putsch, to the Labour Party's backstabbing both of striking workers and of coalfield communities. A lot of Independents whom everyone in their pit villages knew to be Tories, even if they had no formal connection to the Conservative Party, were returned as councillors fairly soon after the Strike. The fall of the Red Wall did not happen overnight.

We are heading for a hung Parliament. To strengthen families and communities by securing economic equality and international peace through the democratic political control of the means to those ends, including national and parliamentary sovereignty, we need to hold the balance of power. Owing nothing to either main party, we must be open to the better offer. There does, however, need to be a better offer. Not a lesser evil, which in any case the Labour Party is not.
