Jeremy Corbyn: Tony Blair increases support by launching paranoid attack

optimism in the possibility of a new way forward

Last month Tony Blair crawled out of whatever rock he hides under when not hobnobbing with dictators and showing how to wash away their crimes, for a hefty fee of course, to launch a blistering attack on Jeremy Corbyn. He has now crawled out again, to launch another attack, only this time it comes across as someone paranoid and completely off their trolley. But then he has reason to be, he could be on trial for war crimes, him and his associates Alistair Campbell and Jack Straw.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re on the left, right or centre of the party, whether you used to support me or hate me,” he wrote. “But please understand the danger we are in. The party is walking eyes shut, arms outstretched over the cliff’s edge to the jagged rocks below. This is not a moment to refrain from disturbing the serenity of the walk on the basis it causes ‘disunity’. It is a moment for a rugby tackle if that were possible.

Does Blair care what happens to the Labour Party? Of course not, the only thing Tony Blair cares about is Tony Blair, the only thing that motivates him is his own personal greed. He comes across as someone with a Messianic complex. He believes his own self importance.

Blair talks of annihilation. A rather inappropriate word from Tony Blair, is that not what he did to Iraq?

Maybe Blair looks at the packed meetings across the country and thinks, that is $200,000 going begging each meeting. Except of course no one at the meetings would wish to hear Blair speak, they would be demonstrating outside calling for him to be put on trial for war crimes.

What Blair and his ilk do not seem to grasp, the more they attack Jeremy Corbyn, the more it increases his support, as people realise they must be backing the right man.

All it now takes is Blair to endorse one of the other candidates, and it will be the kiss of death.

Such is the desperation of Labour MPs, they are calling for Ed Miliband to intervene. One of the worst leaders Labour has ever had, who should have been ditched at least a year before the General Election, a man who succeeded in seeing Labour wiped out in Scotland and suffering one of their worst ever defeats in England.

Daily Mail had a throw away line today in the editorial, Jeremy Corbyn described as a throwback Marxist.

In the same paper, Labour Party being infiltrated by er infiltrators, four Labour MPs calling for the leadership election to be suspended. The Labour Party responds that it has robust procedures in place to weed out infiltrators.

Throwback Marxist. I am sure there will be worse to come, especially from gutter rags like The Sun.

Infiltrators, the term conjures up SS infiltrating the French Resistance.

Infiltrators, who are these infiltrators. The Daily Mail helpfully tells us. A few Greens.

Does it actually matter if people have an association with another party? They are registering because they see the possibility of effecting real change.

Next we will be told members of ISIS have registered as Labour Party supporters. Or maybe Vladimir Putin has managed to infiltrate.

Comedian and columnist for The Independent Mark Steel  is one of those blocked. Film maker Ken Roach is another.

Apart from being supporters of Jeremy Corbyn, on what grounds to reject? In the case of Mark Steel, could it be because he mocked the way Labour is blocking supporters, to then run foul himself?

Of everyone I have spoken to, bar two, and I will come to these two, there is overwhelming support for Jermy Corbyn. The more he is attacked by Blair and the Labour Establishment, the stronger that support becomes. Many have registered, many have not, but all wish to see Jeremy Corbyn elected and bring about real change.

Of the two who raised doubts, one referred to Jeremy Corbyn as a Marxist, the other as being under the control of Trade Unions. I carefully explained neither was true, asked were they happy with the status quo. To which I received an adamant no. Support Jeremy Corbyn then, was my response. They will think about it.

And from where do they get these perverted notions? From rags like the Daily Mail and a Labour Establishment that seems keen to do Murdoch’s dirty work for him.

Of everyone I speak to, they see Labour as unelectable, they recognise why Labour did so badly in the last election, Tweedledee v Tweedledum, they can not see the difference, therefore why bother voting or if you do vote vote for the real thing and vote Tory.

Why is it, the mainstream media and the Labour Establishment cannot see what is plain and obvious before their nose? I can only assume because they inhabit the same worlds, reinforce each others perverted world view. But then they could not see what was happing in Scotland, the radicalisation and politicisation of the populations that was created by open discussion of Indy Ref.  The same is happening with Jeremy Corbyn, once the population is radicalised and politicised, that genie cannot be put back in the bottle. Another significant factor may be the number of people who have read Revolution and regularly watch The Trews.

It is laughable that anyone thinks Labour could win under Liz Kendall, Yvette Cooper or Andy Burnham. These are the very people who lost the last election. They would make Labour irrelevant, cast to the margins of history as as happened to the LibsDems (who) and Labour in Scotland. And even in the unlikely event they could win, nothing would change.

Do we want to see mass library closures, as is being pushed through in Lincolnshire by a fundamentalist Tory leader of the County Council? Of 45 public libraries, 30 will close, and of the remaining 15, these will be on reduced hours. In Birmingham, the new state-of-the-art library, is now on reduced opening hours and appealing to the public for new books.

If we want to see where we are heading, visit the outposts of the Western Empire on the banks of Dnistr,  where people are eking out a living on less than $5 a day. Or see what the EU is imposing on Greece.

Such was the surge in people wishing to register as Labour Party supporters today to enable a vote in the leadership elections that the website crashed. The deadline for registrations originally midday, had to be delayed by three hours until 3pm.
