A letter a day to number 10. No 1,490

Monday 11 July 2016.

Dear Mr Cameron,

The big question for me right now is what are people who are of no earthly use to man nor beast doing posing as MP’s, and why are they so terrified of a politician who is actually and demonstrably working for the well being of others?

Speaking at the Durham Miners Gala Jeremy Corbyn said the following, “There’s a lot of debate about what’s happening in the Labour party at the present time. And I am inundated with questions, questions, questions all the time. And I have patience that is infinite to answer questions, questions, questions.

“But one I got today really did puzzle me. They said: are you coping with the pressure that’s on you? I said: ‘There’s no pressure on me. None whatsoever.’ The real pressure, the real pressure – real pressure – is when you don’t have enough money to feed your kids, when you don’t have a roof over your head, when you are wondering if you are going to be cared for.”

The Canary reported Assem Allam, owner of Hull City football club and one of Labours biggest private donors, as saying, “People think I donate to the Labour party because I like Labour policy. That’s not the reason at all. I would like to start the process of reducing the Labour party’s reliance on trade union money. For the Labour party to rely too heavily on the unions worries me. It’s undemocratic for one party to rely on one category of the community.” I think he’s got a couple of wires crossed as the party he should be supporting is funded exclusively by private interests and he’d be right at home there.

It is simply incredible that it is no longer considered tenable for a political leader to stand on a platform of social justice. Even more incredible is the absolute horror and outcry that Corbyn has had the audacity to do just that. And even more incredible is the extent of political and media spin and manipulation, including the BBC, in trying to discredit him.

Politics has descended into farce and chaos, those who should be running the country are ruining it, and Corbyn talking about social justice, decent homes for all, fully funded universal health care, ending austerity, protection at work and so on, has got the ‘establishment’ running around in abject terror screaming that the end of the world is nigh. It is long overdue that such people started acted their age and not their shoe size and if they cannot or will not we should get rid.
