Another terror attack in Europe coincidentally(?) occurs right before crucial national elections, this time in the UK - The British media start the war against Jeremy Corbyn just like the US media did with Bernie Sanders
Who is the establishment's reserve in the UK this time? No doubt: Theresa May and the Conservatives.
In fact, the establishment doesn't seem to have too many options now that sees with terror that the Labour party starts 'derailing' dangerously from the neoliberal agenda, under Jeremy Corbyn. Brexit was not Theresa May's idea, after all. She is definitely establishment's favourite, a kind of reincarnation of Margaret Thatcher, the holy mother of neoliberals all over the world.
So, the British media sharpen their knives against Labour party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, because he brings back forgotten pro-people policies against the agenda of the plutocracy. Which shows that for the elites, Brexit is not that important right now. The important thing is to keep Britain under the flag of cruel neoliberalism that serves their interests against the benefit of the majority.
The Labour party rhetoric and policies that is promising under Corbyn is shifting to the opposite side. For example, some of these policies include:
- University tuition fees would be scrapped and student living grants would be brought back. This could well explain why voter registration has soared among students with a predicted 55% backing the Labour party.
- Sixty pc of UK's energy will come from renewable sources by 2030.
- Railways would be brought back to public ownership, reversing Margaret Thatcher's 1993 privatization, which almost all travelers agree, has led to absurd prices with an abysmal train service.
- And, of course, the Labour party promises to reinforce Britain's National Health Service (NHS) under public control, instead of undermining it, like the conservatives do, in order to sell it off to private companies.
In another very important national election in Europe, a terrible event comes conveniently close. The Manchester Arena bombing will assist the establishment to maintain power through more repression and fear. These are the last 'solutions' left when the classic narratives and methods start becoming dysfunctional.
So, terror will force the British to vote the conservatives who are presenting themselves as being more tough against migrants, resembling the far right narratives and ideology. But the truth is that they don't care about security. Their job is to pave the way for the complete appliance of the neoliberal policies which include more privatizations, more tax-reliefs for the super-rich, complete destruction of the welfare state against the poorest and most vulnerable.
Terror in all kinds of forms, is the most useful tool for the elites in order to keep the masses subservient and paralyzed, unable to revolt and counterattack against the neo-Feudal conditions that are about to come. We saw it already in France and elsewhere.
The attack on Corbyn by Britain's right-wing media has been ferocious. Overcoming this level of hostility would take a political earthquake. That is, a lot of courage by the British people to defy again the sirens of the establishment, as happened with Brexit.
