By Maid of Kent – Speaking at a rally in Westminster during last Thursday’s public sector strike, Mary Bousted, the general secretary of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers, called the response to the strikes by Labour leader Ed Miliband ‘a disgrace’.
Her speech criticising Miliband centred on his lack of opposition to ‘this devastating attack on our pensions’ by the Coalition’s proposed reforms and raised the biggest cheer from the crowd of strikers.
While Bousted and her fellow strikers appear to be unaware that the need for such cuts is due to the financial destruction caused to Britain by the Labour governments of Blair and Brown, the reality behind Miliband’s refusal to support the strikes appears to escape them entirely.
By spending the Nation’s money on the results of their deliberate programme of mass immigration brought about to import Labour voters from the Third World, these Labour governments revealed their abandonment of the British worker and traditional Labour voters many years ago.
Having imported a new electoral base, the Labour party no longer wants or needs the votes of the indigenous British people, and Miliband’s refusal to support the strikers should make very clear the contempt that he and his party feel for their traditional supporters.
The fact that even when disgusted with the actions of successive Labour governments, their traditional voters either carry on voting for them or stay at home, refusing to vote for any other party than Labour, has given these politicians the confidence to continue with their anti-British policies and to ignore the wishes of those voters.
As was evident in the recent by-election in Inverclyde, although Labour has lost much of its support the party still managed to win the seat even with a majority that was less than half of the count at the General Election. Whether they win by one vote or 20,000 is irrelevant to them because they still retain their power in Westminster.
That is why they feel nothing but contempt for the British workers and their traditional British support base and why they are not afraid to show that contempt.
With their imported immigrant voting base ensuring Labour’s continued success at the polls, it is not enough for traditional Labour voters to stay home in disgust as the loss of their votes makes no difference to the Labour party. The only thing that Miliband and Labour fear is that their traditional voters among the British public will switch their support and votes to another party.
While the British National Party has been warning the British people for years that they are voting for their own destruction when they vote for the Lib/Lab/Cons – and unsurprisingly has been attacked by these parties for telling the truth – the results of such voting habits are now abundantly clear. So I would suggest that the strikers and their fellow British workers learn the lesson made clear by Miliband’s refusal to support them.
Without defending the ConLibs, who share the same financially destructive policies as the Labour party, and who appear to have stacks of taxpayers’ money for their own pet projects like Foreign Aid, Human Rights for foreign criminals and Third World Health Tourists but not enough for the British people, Bousted and the strikers must surely realise that it was the deliberate and excessive policies of successive Labour governments that have made these cuts necessary.
While we would naturally assume that Bousted, as general secretary of the ATL, and the crowd of teachers and lecturers who cheered her speech, would be of reasonable intelligence, their apparent ignorance of the progressive steps which have led to their own ruin seem astonishing.
Seeming to believe that the deluge of public (taxpayers’) money for Labour’s self-serving schemes such as mass immigration, welfare benefits for the world, diversity and equality programmes, among many others, was an endless flood which would last forever, the strikers appear to be ignorant of the fact that such largesse is unaffordable by any nation.
That workers in the public sector who in their daily work deal with the expensive results of these disastrous schemes, such as the criminal overcrowding of our schools due to the influx of immigrants, appear to believe that the money to pay for it all is endless, must surely reveal the level of brainwashing that they have undergone or the lack of logical intelligence in these workers.
Put simply, the Labour party whom these workers refuse to condemn – and whom many of them voted for, and will do so again – has spent all the money on their attempts to transform Britain and to stay in power, and now there is nothing left for British workers’ pensions in the public or private sector.
Surely these teachers and lecturers must have questioned how we could educate the horrendous numbers of immigrant children who have come to Britain in the last 14 years, catering for all their individual languages and paying for their health and housing needs without it costing a great deal of money?
I hate to state the obvious to these striking public sector workers and their political fellows in the private sector, but just who did they think would be paying the bills for the international Marxist ‘Paradise’ that, by voting for Labour, they voted for?
Who did they think would be paying for the education of immigrants’ children? Who did they think would be paying for the health care for the immigrants allowed into our country without any health checks, many of whom have expensive illnesses and diseases to treat? Who did they think would be paying the costs of the imported crime wave, the costs of imprisoning the imported criminals and their defence and Human Rights Appeals claims? Who did they think would be paying the costs of social housing and benefits for these low-skilled immigrants?
Did they really believe that the champagne socialists they voted for would get the money for this ‘utopia’ from their rich friends in business who have ways of avoiding paying the taxes that ordinary people have to pay?
Sadly, these teachers and lecturers are now finding out where the money to pay for it all came from – their pensions.
In case these public sector workers are curious – none of those Labour politicians who served in the Labour governments from 1997 to 2010 and are responsible for the financial devastation of Britain are suffering the financial ills that their policies inflicted on their supporters. At the last estimate, Tony Blair was worth £60 million, and the rest are financially comfortable for life, with well-paid jobs, expenses and generous pensions. It’s just the ordinary workers’ pensions which are ‘unaffordable’.
As for ‘disgraceful’ Labour leader Miliband, who refuses to support the strikers’ cause, one could think that his reluctance to side with them is due to embarrassment at leading the party responsible for their plight.
However, as the Labour Party ceased to represent their supporters, the workers and people of this country years ago when they chose instead to represent the millions of foreign immigrants that they allowed to flood into Britain, this lack of support from Miliband must surely be the writing on the wall for the millions of Britons who still, like sheep, vote for the party which has betrayed them.
Given that the British National Party has been warning the British people for years of the consequences of the disastrous self-serving policies of the Lib/Lab/Con politicians, it still gives us no pleasure to have been proved right when we see our fellow Britons suffering the results – even when they have ignored our message and continued to vote for those who have betrayed them.
