Labour and the NHS
It is verifiable that all of the problems that Britain has faced since 2010 have resulted almost entirely from decisions made by members of the New Labour; on behalf, and/or at the direction of the EU. Left wing Politicians who tried to con the electorate by disingenuously blaming all of our problems on the Conservative Party or the Banks at the time of the General Election.
Today the British, that is to say those resident in Britain prior to the opening of the borders to Europe by New Labour; acting as agents for the EU, have become second class citizens in their own country in terms of access to jobs, housing, healthcare, social amenities, equality and quality of life. The problem with housing was never addressed by New Labour politicians even though they were aware of the fact that there was a rapidly increasing population; which they were actually promoting. The model for this "Utopian Society" that they were engineering, on behalf of the EU, was Multiculturalism, or to put it in context; introduced large scale segregation within existing settled communities.
No proper provision was made for school places nor adequate healthcare. In fact, in 2004 doctors were paid larger salaries in return for fewer working hours and were allowed to opt out of “after hours” provision – these politicians actually reduced healthcare capacity at the same time as increasing the population - tantamount to criminal negligence.
The Financial Crisis
The New Labour politicians would also like you to believe that they bear no responsibility for the effects of the financial crisis on Britain which led to a worldwide recession, making it much harder to get out of debt; and that it was all the fault of the banks. In fact, the crisis was set in motion by Left wing politicians in the US (Democrats), under Bill Clinton, who relaxed regulation put in place to prevent the recurrence of the Great Depression (1929 –1939) and then encouraged lenders to give, effectively, unsecured loans to poor families to enable them to buy their own property - how irresponsibly Socialist.
As a result the banks were left holding large amounts of worthless collateral (“sub-prime” mortgages) and to protect themselves, the banks hid these sub-prime assets amongst prime mortgage assets as Collateralised Debt Obligations (CDO's) and sold them on to other institutions. This resulted in a contagion of debt spreading throughout the financial system.
When it became clear that the system was awash with unrecoverable debt, it collapsed. Interestingly, if Hillary Clinton had been elected as US President in 2017, she had promised to put Bill Clinton in charge of the US economy - deja vu.
The Labour politicians were in the middle of that and instead of acting prudently, they were borrowing and spending - like a bunch of drunken sailors on shore leave - even at the height of the crisis, and it was not just the banks who they failed to protect, they even continued spending up until they were replaced in the 2010; this was after they had previously proclaimed that they had put an end to “Boom and Bust”
When New Labour came to power in 1997 the national debt was at 40% of GDP, by 2010 that had risen to 80% of GDP.
The Labour attitude to fiscal responsibility prior to the crash was summed up by Ed Balls in 2006: “…Nothing should be done to put at risk a light-touch regulatory regime." – These are the same fiscally incompetent politicians who created the sorry mess that we are in today. But there is more to it than just the Labour Party’s fiscal fiasco.
Labour and the EU
There are other problems which are also directly attributable to the New Labour politicians. In 2007, Labour signed the Lisbon Treaty (Ratified in 2009) and thereby surrendered Britain’s sovereignty to the EU (Article 1-10); agreed to devolving Britain into regional Provinces of a Federal EU State to be administered by appointed EU governors (Article A8 - (1 to 4)); agreed to the formation of, and participation in, a European Army (Article I-40(3)); agreed to EU Law taking primacy over UK law (Article I-6); agreed to taking Britain into the Euro by 2020 (Article I-8), and a whole raft of other terms and conditions which effectively leave Britain impotent in Europe and in the rest of the world.
None of these terms and conditions were agreed when Britain entered into trading in a tariff free Europe – they were introduced through stealth and deception by Labour in 2007.
"Gordon Brown signed the Lisbon Treaty (“the Treaty”) itself in 2007, and ratified it in 2008, under prerogative powers – without the prior or subsequent consent of Parliament." (Lord Justin's comment on an article by "Thomas Fairclough: Article 50 and the Royal Prerogative." in ukconstitutionallaw.org, November, 2016) The Europe Minister at the time, Caroline Flint, admitted that she had not even read the Lisbon Treaty (2007) documents.
This are the very same Royal Prerogative powers that the High Court denied to Theresa May, and New Labour's Supreme court will likely uphold that judgement in favour of the EU - Clearly the Royal Prerogative powers can only be allowed to be used to force Britain into the EU, but not in order to escape from its clutches.
The New Labour politicians had won the 2005 election on the promise of a referendum on the EU, but that was deemed, by them, to be unnecessary since, in their view, there had been no significant changes in Britain’s relationship with Europe. Miliband played the same confidence trick during the General Election in May, 2015 – a referendum only if there are any Treaty changes (as defined by the Labour Party).
Based on previous experience, Labour would therefore never have allowed a referendum on Europe, whatever the circumstances. In reality they were complicit in the treachery against the British (English - since the SNP are happy to have their kinfolk entrapped in the EU)
Labour opens the Floodgates
Labour opened up Britain’s borders to allow free movement of workers; without any concern for the health or welfare of its own citizens at the time, or in the future; and deliberately ignored any negative impact. Miliband et al., during the May, 2015 General Election, pretended that Labour were able to limit migration from the EU but (a) they are bound by the treaties that they signed, which won’t allow discrimination against other EU migrants (e.g. benefit restrictions) and (b) in any event, they had previously shown no desire to slow down the inflow of migrants to Britain, for the same reasons that they opened our borders in the first place.
These are the same politicians who are still milling about waiting for another opportunity to finish their destruction of Britain, and they would have simply reverted to their tried-and-tested practices, which were applied prior to the election and, in reality, migration would simply accelerate by stealth and we would be dragged deeper into the EU. This is now Corbyn's alternative "Vision" to finish what Blair and Brown failed to complete.
These are just some of the decisions taken by the current bunch of Labour politicians who have left us in a mess which they don't want to talk about, or simply feign contrition. Indeed they wouldn't even speculate on how large the UK population will be allowed to grow or how such changes will be managed, or how the current population will be able to cope - Save for bringing in legislation to stop us talking about the problems that they have created.
Labour (the PLP) and the ubiquitous EU, are responsible for Britain's food banks, low wages, zero-hours contracts, high rents, housing shortages, the NHS funding crisis and increasing inequality; since none of these would have occurred, or have been so acute, had the current Labour politicians (those who were part of the Blair/Brown government or subsequently departed), acted prudently and responsibly, and not put the country into an astonishing % debt/GDP ratio, and then left a note stating simply "Sorry there is no money left".
The Labour Party, by proxy, continues to act for the EU (along with a majority in the establishment) against the interests of Britain and widen their interference in EU migration into Britain; and into Europe more generally - these criticisms also apply to other agents of the EU; the Conservative Party, the Liberal Democrats, Greens and the SNP.
What lies behind the actions of the Labour Party
The Labour Party now has Jeremy Corbyn as leader, and he is openly proposing to do what New Labour did to destroy Britain by stealth - just because Blair was able to give the impression that he cared about Britain belies the fact that he and Corbyn are tied to the Fabian Society, which established the Labour Party; controls the Parliamentary Labour Party (PLP) and that all Labour Party Prime Ministers have been members. So it does not matter which type of Labour Party leader they adopt because they all have the same instructions - the only difference between them is presentation.
Out of interest the Fabian Society also established the United Nations (UN), the National Union of Students (NUS) and the London School of Economics (LSE), and its associates set-up the Bilderberg Group, who were instrumental in setting up the EEC (EU) through the Treaty of Rome (1957) to name just a few. They each have a common purpose, which is to bring about a Socialist system, leading to a Communist state; to look after the interests of the "elite", and to control the workers. For example, the "EU Four Freedoms" are just that, - an invitation to exploit any opportunity to make money without responsibility - hence zero hours contracts, the privatisation of public services, sale of infrastructure and a general free for all - except that it is only the "elites" who can benefit.
The truth about what the Labour Party, and the rest of the Political Left, are really all about was revealed by the Labour MP Rachael Maskell who exposed the Left wing vision for unlimited, uncontrolled mass immigration into Britain - upon which they refuse to give a limit..About refugees she stated
"We will keep going until we hit our saturation point because what does it matter if we have to wait another week for a hospital visit? "Or if our class sizes are slightly bigger; or if our city is slightly fuller? "What does it matter if things are slightly more challenging? - September 15, 2015 - Such comments completely contradict the mantra that the NHS is in trouble because of old (British, by implication) people.
The comments by Maskell do not consider the impact of other immigration: from all over the world, the EU, and totally ignore the subsequent exploitation of the NHS, and our other public services; and point to a more sinister motive from the Left.
These are the children of Aneurin Bevan - the Labour MP's and their followers - who want to sacrifice our NHS, and our country on the altar of Marxism - and who will only be happy when they bring the country to its knees.
The above activities by Labour are only the tip of the iceberg of the damage that they, in particular, have inflicted upon the UK on behalf of the EU. The sooner we are free from the EU, and the political Left has its influence diminished, the sooner we can make our own future; the sooner we can build a Britain which cares for everyone who lives in this country.
