Labour’s problem was never the Leader it was the unelectable second referendum policy and a PLP that stabbed him in the back.
Jeremy Corbyn is the Labour leader who took the party to its worst general election defeat since 1935, still, eight-month later Corbyn is voted the best Prime minister we never had.
A Twitter poll by Times Radio saw the MP for Islington North defeat former Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy in the final round, with 57.7% of the vote.
Some 12,300 votes were cast in presenter Matt Chorley’s “World Cup of Best PMs We Never Had”. a poll Corbyn was never supposed to win.
However, this does not come as any sort of surprise, no matter how hard Sir Keir Starmer and the mainstream press working alongside the Labour Party propaganda machine tries to downplay and undermine Jeremy Corbyn, The people have never bought into it Corbyn constantly being discredited.
Starmer and others have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. Corbyn’s direction was to empower the people and they certainly don’t want that. Corbyn’s leadership opened the door to activists from a wide variety of movements: from peace to environment to racial equality or anti-austerity. People found not only a leader but their own voice too.
It was never Corbyn it was always Brexit and Starmer’s second referendum policy.
The illusion has been created, Corbyn was the reason Labour lost so dramatically in 2019. Sir Keir Starmer try to add weight suggesting an overloaded manifesto of Left-wing policies was also an issue, but again independent opinion polls have already proved that Labours policies on the economy and nationalisation were very popular. The one policy that was extremely unpopular and lost Labour 52 leave voting constituency was the one policy Sir Keir Starmer pushed onto the manifesto, a second referendum. The one policy and only champagne issue that put Bois Johnson in the seat was to ‘Get Brexit done’ no wonder Starmer works so hard on misdirection.
Repetition makes a statement seem more true, regardless of whether it is or not. Understanding this effect can help you avoid falling for propaganda.
“Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth”, is a law of propaganda often attributed to the Nazi Joseph Goebbels, it seems a shame a Labour Party Leader is using the same technique once carried out by such evil men on its own membership. Sir Keir Starmer is employing a technique that among psychologists known as the “illusion of truth” effect.
If repetition was the only thing that influenced what we believed we’d be in trouble, but it isn’t. We can all bring to bear more extensive powers of reasoning, but we need to recognise they are a limited resource. Our minds are prey to the illusion of truth effect because our instinct is to use short-cuts in judging how plausible something is. Often this works. Sometimes it is misleading.
Where Sir Keir Starmer has declared that the 2019 result was down to the unpopularity of one person – Jeremy Corbyn – and that Labour’s left-wing policies meant that the party was unelectable. The reality, Sir Keir is perpetuating a lie. By repeating this lie an establishment slur it helps to shovel dirt on the Left-wing agenda of the Labour Party and socialism in general.
Confidential Labour election report reveals 1.2m party voters just stayed at home.
The official 44-page report revealed the party lost 2.6m voters between elections.
The post-mortem and official report found it would be “unrealistic” not to say its policy to hold a second Brexit referendum played a “decisive” role in Labours’s defeat
It said the party’s eventual position of proposing a second Brexit referendum alongside an option to leave on a newly-negotiated deal by Labour, aimed to reach across the country, “but was largely unsuccessful”. LINK
While the authors accepted there were “negative views” of the outgoing leader they did not lay direct blame at his door.
Starmer will never be able to come from under Corbyn’s shadow.
Far from being a weak or divisive leader, they concluded instead that he was the victim of four years of unrelenting attacks on his character. This was an “assault without precedent in modern politics”, they said.
The problem with this is that Labour’s policies are, in fact, overwhelmingly popular: significant majorities of voters support funding the NHS, raising the minimum wage, building council homes and other such social democratic policies.
While the evidence shows that Corbyn’s leadership was unpopular, this sense of leadership was profoundly linked to his Brexit position, gifting the Conservatives the “dither and delay” line they were able to use so effectively. And I believe this – Brexit – provides the most plausible way of summing up Labour’s defeat in one word.
Precisely, the problem was that Labour massively underestimated how much leave voters wanted Brexit, while overestimating how much remainers wanted to stop Brexit. Millions and millions of people still want Britain to leave the EU
Starmer seems to have a history of ‘post truth and Post-truth politics’ from his days has director of public prosecutions (DPP) to the recent leadership campaign, were he found it convenient to postpone his financial backers till after the result and has predicted they were all unsavoury characters.
The Labour Party’s own civil war created by and fought within the PLP is a reflection of a corrupt middle-class bunch of politicians who have turned a deaf ear to the people from Brexit to their choice in Leader, remember this entire shameful history started with a coup, a coup this present Labour leader participated in…
