Today, the mass media are talking about Alistair Darling’s memoirs and the troubled relationships within the Labour Party in the United Kingdom (please remark that I don’t speak about the British Labour Party because there is no such a thing as the British Labour Party).
Did we ‘Joe Public’ know about the theatrical shows of unity of the Labour Party? Yes, we knew. We also knew about the man that stood up in Parliament and declared that he had ‘saved the world’. It was the ‘Blairites’ and the ‘Brownites’, the intrigues at the very heart of a political party that used to be a conglomerate of Trade Unions playing politics and then went to bed with whoever would keep them in power and this included big business, Ruppert Murdoch, dubious Asian businessmen, Muammar Gaddafi and Russian ‘businessmen’ like Boris Berezovsky.
The political party that was going to promote a Moral Foreign Policy worked in tandem with the Libyan dictator to facilitate American rendition flights. As the Libyan government of former hero Muammar Gaddafi comes to an end, the stash of documents incriminating the Labour Party comes to the surface.
What matters to us is the fact that Mr. Darling, whatever his relationship with the Labour Party or within the Labour Party, was very much involved in the launching of at least two wars – Afghanistan and Iraq – and was very much behind the policies of flood immigration and ‘Positive Discrimination’ with the aim of changing British demographics for political purposes. These are the facts that matter to us most and foremost.
