I left part two of my look at Corbyn with the question ‘Will Britain step further away from the US?’ Well, I think we should, even thought I love the US and want to live there – it is too volatile, and forgetful, to be a useful ally. I believe we need to return to Europe more, as a super block it is more powerful than the rest of the world combined. Let’s face it, that is where the money is and the technology. So, for now, I say strengthen our ties with France as German control of Europe is worrying and so far gone unchecked – that is where we should be putting our attention.
To continue from yesterday. It is good to see someone like Corbyn call out businesses, including farmers, to stand on their own two feet. I admire the points he makes about investing in building new council houses for rent and increase spending try to turn the country into a high skill/high tech power. I do have an issue with the UK having no home grown world level tech companies. I feel this isn’t right for us as an inventive nation but I am sceptical of printing more money as there could be inflationary consequences. I do think we need to put some controls on the building industry and direct what they are building as the amount of money they are screwing out of people has almost put a stop to the country’s growth but the big issue we need to tackle in this country is the stigma attached to manual skills and apprenticeships – as that’s what we need more of, skilled workers: engineers, trades, etc. – as we have plenty of thinkers but we need practical people to take thoughts and make them into reality if we are to compete with Continue reading Part Two Labour and Corbyn 19th September, 2015
Corbyn Labour Party
So it’s been a week since I watched the election, I was surprised that labour went with Corbyn. It’s definitely a bold move as there has never been such a left-wing Prime Minister in all British history. So let’s start with his appeal, well from the off there was no one worth their salt to go up against him realistically – all the other opponents are either tainted by the foul stench of being too close to Ed or Blair to really make them new and innovative. I know my mum voted for Yvette Cooper, who would have been a good leader but she is too close to Ed and the established political classes, I can see why Corbyn won as a real statement for the left but I’m just perplexed for what it means for the next general election.
