The People’s Voice

David Lindsay

The next General Election will certainly result in another hung Parliament. That is now inevitable when a General Election is held across the three polities of England and Wales, of Scotland, and of Northern Ireland.

What matters, then, is to hold the balance of power.

The People’s Voice is in the process of registration as a political party. Look out for any funny business from the powers that be. In order to be up and running for a General Election this year, it will initially be organised on the Leader and supporters model of the Brexit Party. But it will become democratic as quickly as possible.

The People’s Voice has its roots in the 2015 campaign to elect Jeremy Corbyn as Leader of the Labour Party, in the 2016 referendum vote to Leave the European Union, in the campaign to re-elect Corbyn later that year, in the vastly better than expected Labour result at the 2017 General Election, and in the triumph of the Brexit Party at the 2019 European Elections.

It is a party for those who reject the neoliberal economic policy, the identitarian social policy, the neoconservative foreign policy, and yet also the anti-industrial Malthusianism, that most Labour MPs simply take for granted.

The People’s Voice stands for economic equality and for international peace through the democratic political control of the means to those ends.

That yearning made and kept Corbyn Leader, swung the votes of the areas that decided the EU referendum, deprived Theresa May of her overall majority, and gave the Brexit Party the scale of its victory.

Corbyn has opened up the debate on economic and foreign policy for the first time in a generation. Before the summer of 2015, Britain had an unquestionable State ideology in international affairs and in relation to the architecture of the economy. It was occasionally possible to make a small and probably jocular criticism of the Government. But it was effectively forbidden to criticise the State.

Corbyn has brought onto the platform the voices of opposition in principle to politically chosen austerity and to wars of political choice.

Nevertheless, Corbyn has overlooked his supporters by appointing his enemies to frontbench and other positions. He has permitted a free vote on Syria. He has whipped an abstention on Trident. He has never brought the arming of the Saudi war in Yemen back to the floor of the House of Commons for another vote. His housing and transport policies go nowhere near far enough. He supports gender self-identification, and he sides with neoliberal capitalism on the issues of drugs and prostitution.

He has allowed, and even caused, the dissipation of his initial following among the young male victims of anti-industrial economic policy and of belligerent foreign policy. He wants a Customs Union with the European Union, possibly even at the price of accepting its State Aid rules. He has accepted some of the Government’s baseless and collapsed claims about Salisbury, Amesbury, and Douma.

Corbyn has acted against the social and ethnic cleansing of Labour Haringey, but he has failed to secure justice for the 472 Teaching Assistants in Labour Durham. He has reacted wrongly to the provocative extension of a State Visit to President Trump.

He has accepted a deeply flawed definition of anti-Semitism, and he has failed to prevent the expulsion of distinguished black activists from the Labour Party on trumped-up charges using that definition. He has failed to point out that Pete Willsman had been stating the facts about Israeli Embassy interference, as had been captured on film between Shai Masot and Joan Ryan. He has failed to defend either Chris Williamson or Kelvin Hopkins.

And he has failed to insist that Julian Assange not be extradited to anywhere under any circumstance, which is the wedge issue that is being used to define a pantomime Left that would be acceptable to the official media for the purposes of pretended balance.

The same or similar criticisms may and must be made of such figures as Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and it is increasingly clear also Tulsi Gabbard.

Meanwhile, the Brexit Party’s General Election manifesto will have to be acceptable to Nigel Farage. On point after point, such as the privatisation of the National Health Service, that will make it unacceptable to the people who looked up our communities’ wealth and power as midnight struck between 1972 and 1973, who then looked at our own poverty and powerlessness today, and who duly voted first for Brexit and then for the Brexit Party.

The Brexit Party topped the poll in every local authority area here in the North East. A General Election manifesto acceptable to Farage will not do so. The People’s Voice is what is needed instead.

The People’s Voice will contest this constituency of North West Durham, where my candidacy would, at a 2022 General Election, have been 30 years in the making, and where the sitting MP is an identitarian and environmentalist advocate of neoliberal “free movement” and of a second referendum leading to a vote to Remain; she has not said a word in support of Chris Williamson.

The People’s Voice would support the candidacy of George Galloway at Birmingham Yardley, in a city that was made for him and against an opponent who was made for him.

The People’s Voice would support the candidacy of Marc Wadsworth or Jackie Walker at Barking against Margaret Hodge, whose recent claim that the only acceptable racism in Britain today was against Jews was the most racist statement by a mainstream British politician in a very long time.

The People’s Voice would, of course, support the re-election of Chris Williamson at Derby North. And while having no affinity with the SDP’s split from the Labour Party in 1981, we would not be minded to stand candidates against it in its present form, so long as that compliment were returned. Of course, this list need not be exhaustive.

Anyone interested, do please contact [email protected]. Very many thanks.

It is sad to see that so many study politics for so long yet never really understand it. Mr Corbyn was elected by Labour Party members who if they along with left-leaning outsiders withdraw support for him will demonstrate their ignorance as they also bring about thousands of unnecessary deaths. Corbyn has had the committed support of less than 8 labour MPs, sure the members organised and ensured the rest of the Labour Party MPs couldn’t boot him out, but leader of the Labour Party confers little real power upon the holder other than giving him/her a platform from which to negotiate. Corbyn has done pretty well at that considering he has been dealing with well organised groups committed to diverse interests that mostly number considerably more than 8 MPs. Whining about the compromises Corbyn has had to make is the epitome of ignorance. From the outside people can try… Read more »

Vote for Corbyn and you get Watson, Hodge, Benn, Bradshaw, Bryant, Phillips, Smee, Ellman and 200 plus others of the same ilk, waving their Israeli flags around and parroting the Board of Deputies talking points like Cheerful Charlie Falconer. That is the reality. There are at most 15 decent MPs in the PLP.

Having ticked Ken Livingstone, Marc Wadsworth and Chris Williamson off the hit list, they are now targeting Seumas Milne. There will be others. The Mossad Office has plenty of shekels left in its war chest.

Wake up and smell the coffee. Labour is a lost cause, a dead end, a waste of time, effort and nervous energy. It isn’t just useless, it is positively harmful. That effort can be used much more productively elsewhere.

Poor old “avuncular Messiah” Corbyn. He’s been judged and found wanting by both sides here. Canoodling with little Greta and loving the White Helmets to Mr Bonney’s “undermining from within” the glorious religion of fervent remain supporters. As if any of it actually mattered. He isn’t PM and is unlikely to become PM. The road back to the middle is much longer than anticipated and is unlikely to be reached using parliamentary democracy.

Corbyn has not just failed to stand up for black activists unfairly accused of anti-semitism ( on a normal definition of anti semitism. There is something very wrong with some recent definitions) He has failed to stand up for LOADS of people unfairly accused of anti semitism. Why has he not stood up for Chris Williamson? Why has he not stood up for himself? !

“An anti-Semite used to mean someone who hated Jews; now it means anyone that Jews hate.” Joe Sobran’s 360º twist of wordplay 🙂 (thanks Seamus 😉 )

Which begs the question, given the above false reality4 humour, how come Margaret Hodge is still in the party ? As she clearly should, but does not know what a Semite is and it is she that is the Anti-Semite and hurling slanderous wild abuse for ‘The Lobby’ and accusations like hers against Corbyn, warrant legal proceedings too, to boot the public comprehension of her scandalous tactics of lies, division & miscomprehension.

I agree with only some comments regarding Corbyn in the above . I rejoined the Labour Party in order to vote for him having left like many after criminal Blair invaded Iraq. I also have watched closely as the media have decimated him at every turn, he turns one way they scream antisemitic, he turns another they scream IRA defender irrespective of the fact that it was the English who created the North of Ireland problem in the first place. The lengths they will go to are endless. The bulk of the party are Blairites, he can do nothing right as the media have waged a campaign of extreme abuse [ only fitting word] along with Secret Services or deep state depending on how you see it, Corporate State and from afar, Israel, USA to mention the most obvious.

You are quite right about Corbyns fight against the Blairite rump and lets not forget that during the leadership contest Jeremy received the lowest level of support from parliamentary colleagues with just 36 PLP votes compared to Andy Burnham with 68 votes, Yvette Cooper 59 and Liz Kendall 41, while 28 Labour MP votes remained undeclared. The media vilified Corbyn from day 1. Corbyn has been accused of being an Islamist, a republican sympathiser, an intelligence asset (for east Europe), an anti-semite, and most recently of suffering a stroke (by ‘impartial civil ‘servants) – lies that have been gleefully recycled by the usual bunch of virtue signallers at the Guardian. How extraordinary civil servants with no medical qualifications and no access to Corbyn’s health records making bizarre pronouncments about his ability to the lead the country! Like Assange, like the antisemitism trope, Corbyn, if nothing else, has exposed the depravity… Read more »

Totally agree. We need a shift in public ideology in Britain. Until we get that there isnt any base upon which to build a revolution. We have to start it in parliament because the British public are scared of revolution, cultured to believe any other kind of change is not possible and doomed to failure and suffering. We have to work with it. For now. I think Corbyn gives (already has in fact) an oportunity to slowly change how people think about the world and neoliberal capitalism. He is principled , but flawed and not particularly radical . But he holds 2 left wing principles that in my view matter most to the world : anti -war and anti worker exploitation. There is a chance he can get elected. That gives him a platform to speak about these things. Whatever else the Blairites and neoliberals will do to prevent him… Read more »

Over the next decade, the climate crisis is going to be used as the categorical imperative for the roll out of global GMO and extensive bioengineering and geoengineering as the scientists of neoliberal corporate capitalism propose to take full technocratic control over the weather and nature in order to save us all. In the face of crisis, GMO offers to greatly enhance the carbon capture of plants and trees on a global scale. There are risks of adopting and applying such technologies but it will be presented as a fait accompli that we have now reached the climate emergency crisis stage where it will be stated that the risk of not rolling out a GMO approach far outweighs the risks of their global roll-out and implementation. There will be no rational alternative apparently than to adopt a portfolio of approaches to dealing with climate change in order to hedge against… Read more »

Mr Lindsey The challenge for any new party is reversing the brainwashing any political operative has undergone to even engage. You clearly have swallowed climate change hook, line and sinker, like 99% of the utterly scientifically illiterate political anoraks. Climate always changes and always will change. It is a term as daft as ‘male sexual arousal’, something else the political morons are trying to outlaw. Climate varies, but it varies in different ways in different geographies. We are in rain deficit in SE England, whereas US Midwest had severe flooding this spring. Warm arctics can accompany cold mid latitudes (late snowmelt in Northern Midwest and European Alps). Heat waves in France accompany cold spells in Eastern Europe. Of course if you give the BBC any credibility you only hear half of this. You bow before Ice Age fanatics, you only hear the other half.

You do realise that Corbyn campaigned tirelessly for REMAIN?

Also, he was elected as leader the first time without the massive ensuing membership?

Geez between Toynbee of the Groan and this piece I can’t squeeze a ciggy paper.

The present Fart Agers party (is it one yet?) will go the way of the last lot of smelly kippers.

The only important contribution the Peoples whatever can do is to make sure that there is max voter registration and than a massive turnout. Then the peoples vote on the manifestos offered can be decisive.

Oh and if any influence can be exerted NOW to remove the current paratrooped incumbents from candidacies at the next GE.

As for Jezza, his contribution is already historic and indeed biblical (Moses leading to the promised land…), the future Labour leadership is already developing.

Sorry my friend, but your last paragraph leads me to suggest a diagnosis of ‘heroification displacia’ …which is to miscast your own inherent capacity to change onto the un-charismatic fence-sitting anti-leadership of the ‘chosen’ other.

To cast the leader in such devotional and votive light is a precursor of most historical fascism. It is a classic performative powerlessness symptom – identified by Arendt, Reich, Fromm, Deleuze, Guattari, and Becker – among others.

But don’t worry: it is not an incurable condition. I recommend a course including “Escape from Freedom”; “Anti-Oedipus”; and my own personal favourite and humanist classic – Becker’s “Denial of Death”. Enjoy! 😉

The irony was not that lost on me: the ‘beardy Moses’ is leading the globalist march to climate fascism …under the promisary guise of the ‘net zero’ decarbonised clean-technocracy rising. Or are we really naive enough to believe he declared the Mayday (Mayday) climate emergency on his own initiative, after a sit down with a lost little girl? Because that is the level of political naivety that the party Faithfull usually display. And that level of authoritarian obedience really will get us all killed. The article is broadly correct in its appraisal of Corbyn. I could add more; like his support of the White Helmets. But any long term commenter has had access to that information for two years. But still they will hear no evil about their beardy avuncular Messiah. That is dangerous, really dangerous.

There could be a lot of mileage in this, even if no seats are won. UK politics are increasingly turbulent and unstable. The authority and credibility of established elites and the power structures and MSM that sustain them are dwindling away rapidly. What was inconceivable yesterday may be inevitable tomorrow. The priority has to be to smash the two main parties completely, Tories and Labour. This may be attainable. A recent poll puts the 4 leading parties, Tories, Brexit, Liberals, Labour in rough balance, eaxh with 18-24%, Labour 4th. Bojo and the EU issue will destroy the Tories over the next 4 months. The EU, the Blairites and the anti Corbyn smears will destroy Labour over the same period. God willing. The Liberals have never been more than a joke party, a bucket to spit in.

In my opinion a new left Party would assist the Tories, as the first past the post system means that you would just take votes from Labour. No past Labour leader has had to deal with relentless divisive attacks from as many directions as Corbyn. He not only has foreign governments (Israel and now the USA) trying to subvert and divide the Labor Party and to label Corbyn and the Party as anti Semitic. There are also ongoing attacks from the Blairites and a relentless barrage of attacks on him by all of the media including the BBC.

“ A recent poll…” The recent poll was by YouGov which has consistently put Labour behind in the last 10 polls whilst the others have placed Labour ahead. A recent polls by other polling companies have placed Labour in front. Polls are as accurate as Mystic Megs forecasts and should be treated with extreme caution as : Cameron, Clinton and May found to their cost.
