I had no sooner published my blogpost this morning in praise of Dawn Butler, using Skwawkbox material, when another SKWAWKBOX post arrived. On reading it, I decided to share its rich but disturbing fruits. Here, for you to digest, is the historical trail of the Labour plot to usurp the socialist challenge of Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters:

Astonishing thread pulls together five years of Labour right sabotage and war to destroy Corbyn and the left

Superb summary thread by @iwaslabour distills betrayal by so-called ‘moderates’ on full display

An astonishing Twitter thread by a former Labour member has distilled five years of sabotage and betrayal by the laughably-termed ‘moderate’ wing of the party to ensure that a left-wing Corbyn government was prevented despite the widespread popularity of both the former Labour leader and his policies – and their war on the whole left since they succeeded.

The Labour right preferred to sentence the whole country to hard right government – with horrific consequences for the poor and vulnerable and their children along with those killed during the pandemic – than see a left leader succeed and confirm their political bankruptcy:

Remarkable work that puts years of political and moral betrayal of party members and the UK’s people at the fingertips of anyone who needs or wants a reminder.

To conclude this extra blogpost this morning, I will share the closing paragraphs of an article published yesterday by the Guardian journalist, Polly Toynbee, that Louise has just brought to my attention. Polly Toynbee is asking the question that all the commentariat have buzzing in their ears: 'How long before the British public realize what sort of man holds the highest office of state?':

'An insightful 1982 Eton end-of-term report about a youthful Johnson rings truer than ever: “Boris sometimes seems affronted when criticised for what amounts to a gross failure of responsibility … I think he honestly believes that it is churlish of us not to regard him as an exception, one who should be free of the network of obligation which binds everyone else.” This letter was sent to his father – no doubt they chortled over it together.

Abraham Lincoln talked a lot of sense about fooling people - and concluded that you cannot fool all the people all the time.

The only question over the summer – and in the autumn when he must eventually make some defining economic decisions – is how many voters will come round to the view of his old housemaster?'

When the fooling stops .....
