It looks like the Prime Minister will finally listen to his own scientific advisers and bring in a national lockdown. It’s taken almost six weeks. We can’t afford a government that seems incapable of acting decisively in a crisis.

7/ Because there is no mass, Marxist labour movement as in the 1920s and 30s, modern fascism has to invent a surrogate, in the "cultural Marxism" of liberal academia and now the poor old WEF, with Klaus Schwab as a stand-in for Dimitrov

5/ As I argued in there is an inevitable battle coming between states and big tech over who owns the ID registry - and the pandemic has accelerated that clash. But the WEF's Great Reset is primarily about sustainability, not control...

3/ It's totally consistent with Arendt's observation that, before they take power the authoritarian right have to conjure up "a lying world of consistency which is more adequate to the needs of the human mind than reality itself"

The Great Reset is a half-assed but well intentioned idea by the WEF to design a sustainable version of neoliberalism-lite. But the Covid conspiraloons think it's an actual "global elite plan to take over the world" because the graphic looks like a Freemasonic eye 1/

We pleaded with Boris Johnson earlier this month to follow advice of their scientists & implement a short circuit break. They dismissed our calls, briefed we were ‘opportunist’ Now sadly more people have died and looks like lockdown could be on way.

The Tory backbenchers clearly want to be the party of mass death and balanced budgets.👇🏽

We are about to enter a straight Schumpeterian political competition over lockdown: Tory libertarians and far right science deniers versus the solidaritistic majority. Any Tory who wants to succeed BJ needs to achieve distance now

Frankly this is no way to run a country. The Prime Minister and Chancellor have been absent for a week as cases have continued to rise. We need to hear from them today about what they are planning so people are prepared and plans can be put in place.

Overnight, the BBC's tone has changed from "Dishy Rishi and his lovely pizzas" to "mass death by Christmas". Did anyone warn that we needed to listen to the science and impose an early lockdown? 👇

As soon as saw the SAGE evidence he called for a short national lockdown. Johnson refused. Here's the result 👇🏽 we're headed for a month long national lockdown

Yes, like Nye Bevan I want Labour to proactively negotiate a multilateral nukes reduction treaty when in office.

From the experience of the Socialist Alliance neither of these things happened. What changed Labour during Blair/Brown was the takeover of RMT, ASLEF, Unite etc by the left.

Staying in Nato and keeping Trident were, as I am always glad to point out, policies Jeremy Corbyn campaigned on in both 2017 and 2019. Do you think our vote would have risen had we campaigned on pulling out of Nato/Trident?
