McDonnell’s Thatcher Killing Fantasy

For all the discussion about the death of New Labour, if ever proof was needed that the project has failed and Labour’s loony left is still alive and well, just look at what one leadership contender had to say when he was asked what he would do if he could travel back in time. John McDonnell told a GMB union crowd that he “would assassinate Thatcher“. There was a distinct lack of disapproval from the other candidates.

McDonnell is looking increasingly unlikely to make the ballot, though Guido understands Andy Burnham is set the scrape through before Wednesday’s deadline. Two days left for Abbot and McDonnell to liven up the race then.

UPDATE : McDonnell has previous, in 2003 he sparked outrage by saying IRA terrorists should be “honoured” for taking part in their “armed struggle”. He praised the provos at a commemoration for the IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands. It was, he said, the “bravery” of the IRA, whose “bombs and bullets” had resulted in the peace process in Northern Ireland. New Labour is only dead minutes and the loony left is back…

    You do realise, don’t you, that he is not standing for Leader of the Conservative Party? Mind you, with these views on Thatcher, he might as well have been at any point in the last 20 years. Come the next contest for that position, she will be a distant memory, and the winner might well be someone who could not vote when she left office. The one after that might very well not have been born in 1990.

    What do you defend about her? Her Single European Act? Her Anglo-Irish Agreement? Her Exchange Rate Mechanism? Her Police and Criminal Evidence Act? Her replacement of O-levels with GSCEs? Her introduction of abortion up to birth, and the moral chaos of the 1980s generally? Her privatisation of British Airways, British Petroleum, and what are now our largely foreign-owned water and power supplies, something unconscionable in any other country?

    Do you mean her destruction of the economic basis of paternal authority, initially in working-class families and communities, though it spread like wildfire, exactly as it was intended to do? Her refusal to recognise the Muzorewa Government, because she thought that the Soviet-backed Nkomo would somehow have been better than the Chinese-backed Mugabe, for whom she nevertheless secured a knighthood? Her support for apartheid South Africa, an anti-British revenge republic set up in a former Dominion of the Crown?

    The list goes on, and on, and on. No wonder that, as you do not appear to have been told, she ended up having to be removed by her own party. No wonder that the only people with a good word to say about her mercifully live thousands of miles away, in the United States. And no wonder that John McDonnell has been nominated by Frank Field and Kate Hoey.

    “1.9. Failure to deal effectively with harassment, whether by the arrest of the suspect or by administering a harassment warning as appropriate to the circumstances, may leave a victim or others at risk. The police have an absolute duty to protect life and must in all cases take action to mitigate and reduce risk. The police force will also be vulnerable to legal challenge if appropriate action is not taken and officers may face personal liability if they fail to take reasonable steps to protect potential victims or neglect their duty.”

      My favourite – waiting for the day it is used successfully against a lawyer who deploys one of that ‘profession’s’ main tactics…the ‘strong letter’.

      As many people know, ‘strong’ letters usually include unenforceable threats and allegations that they know to be completely fake.

    Of course the real scandal has been missed. Cameron has appointed as his “poverty czar” someone who has nominated this would-be assassin as party leader.

    Cameron clearly must now resign.

    Do you defend her compelling of the State to make gifts of significant capital assets to people who were thus enabled to enter the property market ahead of private tenants who had saved for their deposits, and her accompanying creation of the Housing Benefit racket, which is vastly more expensive than would be the maintenance of a stock of council housing?

    As one of the generation that had no grammar schools because she had closed so many of them as Education Secretary that there were not enough left at the end for her record ever to be equalled, and no O-levels because she had replaced them with GCSEs when she was Prime Minister, I could not have disagreed with John McDonnell even if he had been serious. She was a viciously destructive politician who can never be forgiven, and whose defenders are blind to her actual record, instead extolling a fictional character of your own invention.

      As a member of a generation that had no grammar schools, I can still tell when someone is talking an utter load of b*ll*cks. The demise of the Grammar schools was orchestrated by the labour goverment in 1965 with Circular 10/65. This was withdrawn by Margaret Thatcher with Circular 10/70 which no longer required LEA to convert to the Comprehensive system. Labour had a second go in 1976 with the Education Act which was repealed by the Conservatives in the 1979 Education Act. So trying to blame Thatcher for the demise of the Grammar school system is utter, utter cr@p.

      The problem with the tripartite system was not the grammar schools, it was the secondary moderns. The grammar schools did more to promote social mobility than any other system before or since. But rather than fix the problem (a diffcult job), it was much easier for Labour to destroy grammar schools condemn everyone to the lowest common denominator.

    No. Oh no. LMAO no.

    The free market and the financial reforms she introduced in it’s name (1986-ish if I’ve got my history right) were not necessary. Obviously not necessary to a laughable level this side of the credit crunch.

    And union-bashing? So long as the union doesn’t get out of hand, unions are there so that employees aren’t on their own against employers. Because the employees will get sh*t on if they are.

    Even if you aren’t in a union, the threat of a workforce getting unioned up keeps employers in line. Which means the workforce gets paid more, so they spend more, so more money circulates. Everyone is happy, including those who get paid the money that the workforce has earned. That includes the employer paying more, as they have to get paid by people too, who have more to pay them thanks to higher wages.

    And the poll tax?

    No, roll on John’s doctor who experiments.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
