As Republicans in Congress storm SA like to stop a testimonial against Trump. As Mark Hancock whips up fear over immigration with vile leaflets in his constituency . As Franco is driven from his Fascist mausoleum and buried in obscurity let us begin again. It's time to draw up hope and not hate . It's time to talk of direction and not determination. As fear once more becomes a tool of statecraft we must choose the opposite and build unity and respect. The good old boys don't want that. They want a docile work force, an uncritical electorate and division everywhere. Some of the good old boys are just afraid and some quite aware of what they are doing. This coming election is about far more than Brexit . Brexit is a means to obscure the reality of the rotten system defended by the Tories, the Lib Dems and certain individuals of the Labour right. It's time to cast aside the fear and pick up the hope. It's time to embrace the future as did the great Labour government of 1945.
I have been writing the blog 'All Too Human" now for four years and during that time my faith in humanity and socialism has grown. I know that in a few years a spring will come that I will never see. Yet that thought is a sweet one and a pause from struggle. All we can do is campaign, educate and resolve the issues: challenges and possibilities of our time. It can be no other way it never could be. We can run to denial and dread or we can march forward sharing our experiences and possibities. Where there is fear there is indeed power. That power enables transformation and change let us use it now and cast away fear and loathing. It's time now...vote Labour in December 2019..you have nothing to lose but your chains.. Corbyn by Christmas
