Bilderberg 1, Labour 0
The suspension of Jeremy Corbyn from the Labour Party is the beginning of Starmer’s purge of the left in the party, and I predict that the result will be a very much diminished and shrunken husk, where members are only valued for what they can do on the doorstep during election campaigns, rather than anything they may have to say. This is their role which newly appointed general secretary David Evans exults in. I knew him from my time working for the party, and now his dictates to constituency parties that they mustn’t breathe a whisper about any of the current controversy merely enhances my view that a mild form of totalitarianism has found its grip. Treating the membership as mere working bees—no ants—is just one of the things that will return Labour to being an uninspiring cohort of capitalist managerial careerists. In today’s world of politics members are a bit of a nuisance, demanding democracy and all that. There’ll be absolutely no talk any more of building a mass membership. That only brings problems. If the Tories can win elections with just 160,000 members (allegedly) why bother with any more?
This is just one sense in which Bilderberger Starmer is returning the pattern of British politics to ‘normal’ - despite the abnormal circumstances we live in. The Bilderberg Nexus, which has nothing to do with ridiculous and groundless ‘Jewish conspiracy’ theories but a lot to do with preserving the status quo (aka wealth inequality) prefers as members only those from the ‘left’ who are primarily Atlanticist and accepting of the somewhat debunked worldview which saw the triumph of capitalism over ‘communism’ as the ‘end of history.’ The Labour Party has always been conflicted about its role as managers of capitalism (more caring Third Wayism, for example, or Clintonesque triangulation) but now, clearly the recent errant turn under Corbyn is being corrected and will shortly be erased altogether. I predict one consequence of this will be the wholesale abandonment of any plans touted by Starmer in his leadership election bid to stick with, e.g. re-nationalisation plans for water, energy and the Royal Mail, etc. This battle has been waged before (remember Ed Miliband’s mild critique of capitalism?) but now I think it has been joined in earnest by the Bilderberg mindset clique that I assume surrounds Starmer. We need to know who these people are—and how they got to where they are. That sounds a bit conspiratorial doesn’t it? I wonder if it’s an offence worthy of excommunication merely to suggest it’s worth asking? It’s not as if dear old Jeremy was beyond such inquisitions.
