“What party in its right mind would allow a combination of far-left enemies, militant trade unions and first-time supporters to decide its fate?”
Baroness Boothroyd is very right. No party with a “right” mind will allow left and trade unions to decide its fate; who allows first-time supporters to open their mouth and let them take part in decision making? Decision making is reserved for the elite – pleb votes will follow, as we found out in last General Election.
Per “right”-minded Lords and Baronesses, a party should only allow that messiah to decide its fate, who ensures wealth creation by demanding £330,000 for a 20 minutes speech – even if the speech is to address the World Hunger Forum.
Think again, traditional Labour never had a “right” mind. It used to listen more to working class and common man, than to Lords, Baronesses and £275/second charging bigmouths who removed working people from clause IV of party’s constitution; and I hope people who now vote for Corbyn look forward to re-write the party’s current history and imminent future – in the “right” direction.
