Unionism appears to be sleepwalking into oblivion and the UK, once admired around the world for an understated but comfortably unifying Britishness that was inclusive, outward-looking, tolerant and ultimately pragmatic, now presents an ugly picture.”
Gordon Brown, Labour Prime Minister 2008-2010
I never thought I’d agree with anything from an ex Labour prime minister, especially one who was Tony Bliar’s right hand man for 10 years. But he is absolutely right that the UK is sleepwalking into a dystopian totalitarian oblivion ….. but he’s got his reasons and rationale all wrong, because he has been part of it for almost 20 years!
Let’s begin with a few recent incidents, all triggered and related to the UK leaving the European Union, (Brexit), and organisation that is increasingly totalitarian itself. Since 2016 there has been constant undermining of the leave process from ALL parties who care nought for a democratic referendum result:
- Liberal Party ex Leader policy: “Bollocks to Brexit”
- Liberal Party new Leader, Jo Swinson: “We need another “peoples referendum on Brexit, and ….. er no, I won’t respect the result”!
- Green Party Leader, Caroline Lucas: “We need another “peoples referendum” on Brexit, and ….. er no, I won’t respect the result”!
- Labour Party Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell: “If the prime minister won’t resign I’ll send Jeremy Corbyn to the Queen to demand she fires him and puts us in control”
Don’t tell me these aren’t totalitarian statements and behaviours, it’s not about Brexit, it’s not about parliamentary sovereignty…… it’s about people sovereignty over parliament! But it goes beyond these incidents singly, because this is where Gordon Brown is right about the sleepwalking, because we ARE sleepwalking into a totalitarian communist state with a Labour Party now exposed as being hell bent on “state capture”. This was a term I first came across in Nepal as I witnessed 10 years of a Maoist party openly advocate it as a tactic to turn the country from a monarchy into a communist federal republic. Now in Britain the mask has slipped on some very nasty people in the Labour Party who have been implementing Lenin’s FOUR KEY CONDITIONS for revolution and state capture.
1. The existing ruling class must be seen to have fractured and self evidently unable to govern. This has clearly happened with the current government voted against and criticised for EVERYTHING they do, even when they inject funding into the NHS, the police, or stand against the bullying of the EU. This isn’t opposition behaviour, it’s condition one of Lenin.
2. The middle classes must be led to believe that the existing system can no longer give them basic security and a decent life. We are at this stage now, horrific knife crime rises in London with a Labour Mayor doing nothing about it, girl grooming gangs being exposed in many of Britain’s cities, Project Fear about Brexit incessantly rammed down our throats with threats of food shortages, medicine shortages, civil disruption and riots! This is Lenin’s condition two, the flames of fear being fanned by the left wing media.
3. The working classes must turn against the existing political AND economic structures and fight them. John McDonnell has been encouraging this all of his political life, praising rioters in 2010, attacking a jail sentence given to a rioting student who threw a fire extinguisher from a roof into a crowd in 2011, and writing articles on the need for a “militant movement” to overthrow the state. Fortunately this behaviour has been exposed by the great working classes of the North of England, so the Labour Party has increasingly infiltrated education especially universities. “No Platforming” is a classic tactic now where speakers on politics, economics or even science whose views don’t fit the communist narrative are attacked and prevented from speaking.
4. Marxist Leadership is the final condition to achieve state capture and overthrow the existing system, and the Labour Party now have it. Previous Labour Leaders such as Harold Wilson, Jim Callaghan, Tony Bliar for example were as far from Marxism as Margaret Thatcher, but Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnel, Diane Abbot, David Lammy and the rest of the Labour front bench in parliament are as Marxist as you can be. Condition four was achieved some time ago.
