WE are entering the most dangerous phase of British politics for 80 years. It could be that in the next month or so this country will experience a Marxist takeover. While it will be cloaked in constitutionality, it will be a Marxist takeover nonetheless.
Marxists thrive only in countries where there is political chaos, but there has to be an added ingredient for them to prevail. There has to be a massive loss of public trust in established institutions, conventions and procedures. It is when public trust collapses that Marxists take over due to the lack of organised opposition. This is how Marxists seized power in Russia, China, Cuba and a host of post-colonial African countries. During a window of opportunity, they were the default. Therefore it is vital for their agenda to foment public distrust and chaos. Marxism in practice is exclusively concerned with the seizure of power and holding on to it. This is democidal immorality dressed up as popular altruism.
The attitude of Corbyn’s Labour Party goes far beyond political norms. These euro-sceptics for ideological rather than pragmatic reasons have leveraged the Brexit debate to shake the foundations of British political life, co-opting euro-federalists as their useful idiots. It is instructive that Labour refuses to go to the polls. Any democratic exercise runs the risk of resetting British politics in a way that is against the interests of the Marxists, even if that poll takes place after October 31. Instead, they wish to obstruct the government to destroy public confidence in governance, institutions, conventions, and also our current system of representation.
The absurdity of the Labour’s party line demonstrates their destructive instincts. They wish to negotiate a new deal with the EU, but will campaign against this deal, with which they say they agree, in a second referendum. This would be like Labour entering a General Election with a socialist manifesto but asking the electorate to vote Conservative.
The objective of the Labour Party is to sow chaos not just in the government but also in our fundamental political settlement. The aim seems to be to discredit our written but uncodified constitution and to replace it all with an American, or more probably Soviet-style, constitution that drains the life out of this country’s politics as minutely adjustable and thus adaptable convention is transformed into immovable text that would become obsolete with every passing year. Debate would be removed from between the people’s representatives in Parliament and become argument between expensive barristers in the courts, something that has already started. It would be the triumph of the state-appointed judiciary over publicly-elected representatives. Public access to the political process would be narrowed down to the ability to pay for lawyers. The country would become an oligarchy of the professions and single-issue activists.
Look at the log-jam in the United States over gun control, while massacres abound, just because an amendment from the era of the musket is still being applied to the ownership of automatic rifles with armour-piercing rounds. Or how making the drinks industry subject to constitutional control led to the growth of organised crime using constitutionally approved tommy-guns. France has had five republics, each with their own constitution, that have all failed or are failing the French people, some of whom are now in open weekly revolt against their political institutions. The EU is curiously silent about the violent state crackdowns that have caused some demonstrators to be maimed. Germany’s numerous constitutions have all failed their population badly, such that their current one was created under foreign supervision to curb the German people’s evident characteristics being translated into state policy.
It is instructive that the Left protest that a coup is under way in this country, just because the government of the people recognises that a Parliament of people’s representatives has failed the nation by obstructing the implementation of the largest vote in British history. However the coup is not by the government. It started when British MPs undermined an international negotiation to the benefit of foreigners. Parliament has not been acting in the national interest for the last two years, but is also refusing to go to the country for approval. The second coup is the Left sowing disruption that is testing and abusing the evolving political settlement that has kept civil peace in Great Britain since 1746, longer than in any other major country in the world.
The coup is against the government through obstruction, and against the people through the craven refusal to grant an election. The coup is also in line with how Marxists gain power.
One of the earliest accounts of the Russian revolution was titled Ten Days That Shook The World. We are currently living through ten days that are shaking the United Kingdom.
