Following a lot of speculation in The
Guardian recently in which most of the
commentators, Blairites to the hilt, with few
exceptions, were traducing the Labour leader
Jeremy Corbyn, it came as surprise to find a
story without the usual, 'unelectable',
tags attached to it. It arose out of recent
survey which found, "Leader’s hopes of
remoulding the party boosted as Guardian
survey shows surge in members, huge support
and shift to the left."
This led to a lot of pro and anti-Corbyn
comments in the readers' comments section. My

how Jeremy Corbyn has reshaped the
It matters little
what the professed allegiance of the prime
minister of the day is. If the state stopped
spending the parasitic capitalist class would
start screaming for it to begin again. A huge
state expenditure on infrastructure and war
machines is along with poverty, (creating and
maintainence of it), concomitants of the
capitalist economic system.
As a general rule, if you are born poor you will
die poor, in relative terms to the wealth you
produce collectively. Conversely if you are born
rich, you will die rich.
This will continue ad infinitum ,until we
consider introducing a global, democratic,
production for use, post-capitalist solution in
which production of all necessaries produces a
superabundance of wealth, as opposed to
presently a production of commodities tied to a
market with rationed, via wages, access, which
is freely accessible by all.
We can render money and any other means of
exchange obsolete, along with government 'over
the people' replacing it with free access and
people's administration 'over things'.
