If you really think the Labour party will always be unelectable, why are you so afraid of them?

Because socialism fails every time and I don't want my kids or their kids picking up the tab for socialist governments that bankrupt the country and put everyone out of work.

I'm reminded of the great comment made by Dennis Skinner when he accused half of the Tories of being liars. When told to withdraw his accusation, he replied that half of the Tories were not liars.

Now, that's class and how it should be done.

Re: Dawn Butler Booted Out of the Commons

If it weren't for Brexit, I'm pretty certain that Labour would be in office.

It is my view that they did not want to win and acted accordingly in the runup to the election.

But we already have socialism. The NHS is based on a socialist principle, and the vast majority of us value it. I daresay you think the benefits system is too generous and we should let the unemployed simply starve, but we don't. That, too, is socialism. No country or society can call itself civilised without having some degree of socialism.

Re: Dawn Butler Booted Out of the Commons

Have to admit that the anti democratic and anti socialist views are a bit concerning.
