Further to a previous blog on the UK election on the 8/6/17. It now looks like that the result will be much closer than was previously expected. A poll when the election was first called gave the Conservatives a 24% lead. However the latest opinion poll gives them a 5% lead. Although I am certain that the Conservatives will win the election, it seems as if the result will not be the disaster for the Labour party as was originally expected. To the dismay of many Blairites in the Labour Party.
Now experience has taught me not to trust politicians. I don,t trust the Conservatives. As a socialist I will give a critical vote for the Labour Party on 8/6/17. However to be blunt I do not go along with the hero worship for Jeremy Corbyn. He has performed U turns on the EU and trident and I am sure that he will perform many more U turns if he does become Prime Minister.
So my personal experience has told me that we need to build a mass movement from below for world peace and social change independent of the political party,s. So I suggest that right after the election on 8/6/17, whatever the result you get busy in your trade unions, community groups and peace groups and help buld a mass movement from below to put pressure on the politicans.
God bless you all.
