JOHN PILGER—If the polls are reliable, most Britons are well ahead of their politicians, Tory and Labour. They would accept higher taxes to pay for public services; they want the National Health Service restored to full health. They want decent jobs and wages and housing and schools; they do not hate foreigners but resent exploitative labour. They have no fond memory of an empire on which the sun never set.

One thought on “The rising of Britain’s ‘new politics’

  1. In the US, Sen. Sanders represents the deep split among those who are not on the right wing. It’s a division that the media marketed to (middle class) liberals ignores. While falsely described as a “democratic socialist” (for reasons that elude me), Sanders became a prominent voice of Dem Party corporate ideology, pandering to those who are currently of use to employers/the corporate state while comfortably ignoring the consequences of today’s toxic capitalism (our poverty crisis).

    Israel represents yet another deep split among those who aren’t on the right wing, and Corbyn (like US Dems) is on the trendy anti-Israel bandwagon. In fact, many on the left do not agree with this stand. The reasons (ignored by media) aren’t complicated: Israel is both the historic and modern Jewish nation. Jews are indigenous to this piece of land, like Indians are indigenous to what is now called the US. It’s the sole Jewish nation, surrounded by vast, oil-rich Arab countries, some of which seek a 100% “pure” Moslem Mideast. While US liberals tend to portray Israel as a behemoth, it’s actually a tiny country, roughly the size of New Jersey. (Note that the US is one of the leading suppliers of weapons to the surrounding Arab countries.) Israel is about the right of the Jewish people to survive and self-govern within their own nation. “Palestinians” is the name given to Israeli Arabs, many of whom have been recruited to help toward establishing a Moslem Mideast. (Notably, all live within easy traveling distance of an Arab border.)

    The issues are complex, and we’re in an era of “keep it simple.” The job of politicians is to exploit whatever ideas are currently trendy among a select demographic.
