In my final blog of 2022 I will try and predict what may happen in 2023.
Sorry to be miserable but I expect both 2023 and 2024 to be a continuation of 2022. However they may be a change in 2025.
Firstly on the international stage I expect the conflict between the Western imperialist powers and the Russia/China alliance to intensify in both a political and military sense. Let us hope that it does not lead to world war three in 2023. I expect the military conflict in the Ukraine to continue in 2023.
Secondly I expect the world economic crisis to deteriorate in 2023. There could be food shortages even in Western Europe. I expect inflation to remain high.Thirdly I suspect that Klaus Schwab and his World Economic Forum fascists may try and introduce their ‘great reset’ in 2023. This must be resisted by democractic forces with all of their might.
I do not expect there to be any major lockdowns in 2023. However people should keep their eyes open for the excess death rates at the end of 2023. There were thirty nine thousand in 2022. If they are much larger at the end of 2023 this will show that people are dying due to the affects of the covid vaccine.
Here in the UK I expect Starmers ‘Labour’ party to maintain their big lead in the opinion polls. However, I have a hunch that the Reform party,s support in the opinion polls may increase considerably in 2023. I expect the strike wave in the UK to increase in 2023. All strikes by Trade Unionists to defend their standard of living should be fully supported.
In conclusion, of course there will be some unpredictable surprises in 2023. But the main thing is that people fight for peace,justice.equality and freedom against the corporate globalist fascist war mongering elite.
Best wishes to all for the future. Have a happy 2023.
2022 in my opinion can be summed up in one word turbulence. Dominated by the war in the Ukraine, as well as the growing political and economic instability
Firstly the war in the Ukraine the story that has dominated the world news in 2022. My views on the war are well known. The blame for the war must be laid at American imperialism. They were responsible for the 2014 fascist coup against the Ukraine,s democratically elected President. In my view the western imperialist powers want to control the Ukraine as as a base to attack Russia itself.
However this has backfired on the western powers. As Russia is no longer supplying them with gas leading the huge gas price increases, 54% here in the UK. It has also led to a rapid increase in inflation in the west. 10% here in the UK.
Also Russia has largely disconnected itself economically from the west. It now does most of its trade with China and the countries of the Shanghai Economic Cooperation Council.The Russian economy is doing quite well.
Turning to other issues the economic crisis has led to the spectacle of three prime ministers in as many months in the UK. As an anti globalist anti new world order socialist who was opposed to lockdowns. Although I am opposed to Boris Johnson I do not think that should have had to resign for breaking the lockdown ‘rules’
Sticking to the UK the ‘Labour’ party has now built up a huge lead in the opinion polls of between about 15% and 25%. This is only because the Conservative government is so much despised not because the ‘Labour’ party is popular
Alas 2022 will be remembered for the growing political and military conflict between the western imperialist powers and the Russia/China alliance. The world is now increasingly divided into three rival blocks,the non aligned, the western imperialist powers and the Russia/China alliance. However the west is clearly very much a declining economic power.
On a brighter note I thought that the Qatar football world cup was a huge success. Well done to Argentine worthy world cup winners. Lets look forward to the Cricket and Rugby world cup in 2023.
In my next blog in a few days. I will try and predict what may happen in 2023.
Best wishes to all for the future.
Today I felt a sense of relief and exhilaration after leaving my flat in the morning to do my shopping in Central Islington. The typical mild London Winter weather had returned after a week of freezing cold weather.
Winter is my favourite season of the year. But I do not like freezing cold weather. Thankfully in London the mild Winter weather is the norm.
Walking in Central Islington this morning I felt a sense of joy. There was I felt a certain sense of beauty in the grey sky. Also the green grass and green garden hedges added to this beauty as well.
Maybe this being the week of Christmas helped bring a special energy to today. But this memory of the return of the mild weather will remain with me for a long time.
In conclusion enjoy the special energy of the week of Christmas.
Best wishes to you all
This latest blog looks at the current British political situation at the end of 2022.
Surprisingly the ‘Labour’ Party led by the reactionary Keir Starmer has taken a huge lead over the Conservatives in the opinion polls of between 21% and 27%. However as I will argue this lead is not based on the popularity of Starmers ‘Labour’ Party but is instead based on the intense hatred of the present Conservative government.
Britain is a country in both political and economic crisis. Inflation is now running at 11%, gas bills are increasing on average by 54%. Surprise surprise gas company profits are soaring. Also food prices are expected to soar in 2023. No wonder this Conservative government is hated.
But looking deeper Starmers ‘Labour’ is not really that popular. He only has a small lead over Sunak in terms of popularity. Surprisingly one poll gave the Conservatives a small lead over ‘Labour’ in terms of economic competence. So in reality neither of the two main party’s are really that popular.
The Trilateral Commission Starmer has said that hard economic decisions will have to be made by a future ‘Labour’ government. This means make the working class pay for the economic crisis. He has refused to support public ownership of the gas and electricity companies.
One of the few encouraging signs has been the massive increase in strikes in Britain in the last year. This interestingly includes strikes in the private sector.
The Liberal Democrats and the Green Party are both on low opinion poll ratings. They have nothing really to offer. The Reform Party are on about 5% in the opinion polls. However, I have a hunch this will increase in the next year as some voters will turn to them.
As an anti globalist anti new world order socialist. I personally feel that we must build a mass anti globalist anti new world order socialist movement in Britain. Alas at present there is little sign of this happening at present.
However, providing world war three does not intervene. I will stick my neck out and predict that Starmers ‘Labour’ Party will win the next election which will probably be held in late 2024. This will be due to the fact that the Conservative government is now so widely hated. However his government will have nothing to offer the working class. In fact it will be up to the working class and the trade unions to fight back against any attacks that Starmers government will make on them.
In conclusion in these turbulent times may I wish all readers of this blog a very happy Christmas and I offer you all my customary best wishes for the future.
God bless you all.
