BLAIR’S FIRST OPEN ATTACK ON CORBNY’S LABOUR PARTY

Tony Blair has not openly commented on the Labour party under Jeremy Corbyn, until now.

But In the Christmas issue of Right-wing UK magazine ‘The Spectator’,  the former Prime Minister has written a blog attacking the way Jeremy Corbyn is running the Labour party and the direction Corbyn is taking the party.

” All wings of the Labour Party which support the notion of the Labour Party as a Party aspiring to govern, rather than as a fringe protest movement agree on the tragedy of the Labour Party’s current position.”

Blair forgets that Jeremy Corbyn was elected Leader of the Labour party with the biggest mandate from members in living memory, with almost 60% voting for him.

Blair contues: ” Right now we’re in danger of not asking the right questions never mind failing to get the right answers. All of it is about applying values with an open mind; not boasting of our values as a way of avoiding the hard thinking the changing world insists upon.”

Blair forgets that membership for the Labour party is higher than at anytime under him.

Whichever party people from the centre left in the UK support. All would agree that Blair’s vision for our Country is out of date and is for the few and not the many.

1.9 MILLION PEOPLE HAVE LOST THE RIGHT TO VOTE❌

AFTER THE HOUSE OF LORDS FAIL TO INFLICT A SECOND DEFEAT ON THE GOVERNMENT.❌

❌ Peers voted 257 to 246 in favour of the Government’s plans to introduce individual voter registration from December.

❌ From December, all household members must register by themselves or face being removed from the register.

❌The new Individual Electoral Registration (IER) process will particularly affect those in rented accommodation and urban areas, who are less likely to register, and students, because universities and colleges no longer ‘block register’ students living in halls of residence.

❌Despite warnings from the Electoral Commission about the dangers of disenfranchising legitimate voters, ministers believe many of the names are bogus and have speeded up by 12 months plans to “modernise” the system with individual registration.

” The Government has acted without reliable information on how many redundant entries will be removed at the end of this year and how many eligible electors will need to re-register ahead of May 2016.”

“Taking into account…the scale and importance of the polls scheduled for next May, we continue to recommend that the end of transition should take place in December 2016 as currently specified in legislation”

It concludes: “We therefore recommend that Parliament does not approve this order.”

❌Arguing for a delay, Liberal Democrat peer Lord Tyler, a former MP, said he had never heard a statutory body express its view with “such clarity”.

“The official estimate is that 1.9 million people who are currently on the register and were on it at the general election in May will be dropped off it,” he said. “At a stroke, ministers are prepared to disenfranchise huge numbers of electors.”
