Tory Party in crisis?
This morning the BBC and the rest of the media are taken up with the very sudden resignation of Iain Duncan Smith.
So, has the former DWP boss suddenly developed a conscience in a Damascus-like conversion or is it a move to support the Brexit movement and destabilise Cameron et al?
Let us remind ourselves of the oeuvres this man has been responsible for over the last 6 years.
Bedroom tax, welfare “reforms”, PIP and the devastation these measures have wrought on the impoverished and vulnerable; his failure to publish the figures on the lives torn apart or tragically ended by his heinous policies, presided over by the incumbent and equally responsible PM.
Indeed, there are far too many stricken to do justice to in this piece.
In order to honour them we must continue to fight for justice and equality and against this government’s so called “reforms”.
On Marr’s BBC show this morning, Iain Duncan Smith is distancing himself from this and claims that he is for social justice for all – even all those of us who would never vote for the Tories. He has kindly shed some light on the manner in which the elite 2, the PM and his chancellor, run government.
He states there’s no collegiate discussion and ministers have found out about last minute policy changes via the media rather than meetings with each other.
He went on to say that he is proud of what the government has achieved, much in the manner that the football board declare confidence in a failing team’s manager!
Let us concentrate on the fact that the Tories are in disarray; the MSM are kindly informing the public for us and it is time for us to unite as the Labour Party and capitalise on this!
It’s the first day of spring, local elections are almost here let’s go out in teams, ask the public what they want from their councillors and Police and Crime Commissioners; let’s show them that we are rebuilding the fabric of society, first rent asunder by Thatcher.
This is not achievable by simply nodding and offering words of comfort alone; action and positive change is what is required and it is easily achievable - especially now that we have Momentum groups which actively support local communities and their Labour candidates.
