Most Labour politicians think the point of power is to push people around

On 31 May 2015, Stephen Pollard's article 'Why I, a Labour writer, believe that after 115 years...THE PARTY'S OVER,' appeared in The Mail on Sunday.

This said:
"One by one, Labour's leadership candidates are rapidly disowning every element of Miliband's manifesto, and pretending that they never really had anything to do with it...

Just over three weeks ago, all the leadership contenders were signed up to a programme for government that promised to keep spending money we didn't have and would reverse the Coalition's welfare reforms. Now, they'd have us believe they are more careful with taxpayers' money and tougher on welfare than the Tories have ever been. It's not just shameless, it takes the rest of us for fools...
Even the union barons' darling, doe-eyed Andy Burnham, who has spent the past five years trotting out Left-wing platitudes about greedy capitalists and asserting his knee-jerk hostility to the private sector at every given opportunity, is now saying how big a fan he is of business...
Most Labour politicians, for all their current frantic ditching of the party's policies, think the point of power is to push people around in whatever way politicians think best. That's in their DNA and it's not going to change. It's why they join the Labour Party.

Which is another way of saying the Labour Party's entire future is now in doubt. Because it's just not what people accept now. The era of cap-doffing, take-what-you're-given, do-what-your-elders-and-betters-tell-you died with the rise of consumerism... Labour may have been formed as the party of the workers. But its drift away from them long predates this month's defeat."
'Most Labour politicians... think the point of power is to push people around in whatever way politicians think best. That's in their DNA.'

And THAT is what Pollard, and all those 'Labour writers' who think like him, have been gleefully signing up for since Bernard Shaw's time. A democracy where the demos gets pushed around 'in whatever way politicians think best.'

We never wanted mass immigration but the 'push people around' types did, and so that's what we got.

We never wanted political correctness and race law that promoted the Sambo and Abdul-come-latelies ahead of us but that's what 'most Labour politicians' and their 'Labour writers' who governed our thoughts and opinions in the media gave us.

Eventually they got to a point where they were so sold on their own self-worth and so contemptuous of those they were supposed to represent that they forced Red Ed upon us, as unlikely a representative of the British working man as it's possible to conceive. Son of an immigrant Communist whom a fellow Jew dubbed 'the man who hated Britain,' this lisping twerp had about as much in common with the 'horny-handed sons of toil' he was raised up to lead as a bush baby and a pride of lions.

In what kind of alternative universe would a proper chap like Ernie Bevin entertain an embarrassing drip like Miliband?

Well, as the man said, the party's over and a very good riddance to it and the treacherous egotists that rose to power in its wake in recent years. The politicians who 'think best' and their 'writers' gave our world away. It's time for those who give a damn about the British people to win it back.

P.S. I thank Stephen Pollard for his honesty and accuracy here. However, a hundred years ago would have been so much better.

Oh, yes, honesty and accuracy along these lines would have saved all of us a hell of a lot of grief.
“What has kept England on its feet during the past year?... Chiefly the atavistic emotion of patriotism, the ingrained feeling of the English-speaking peoples that they are superior to foreigners. 
FOR THE LAST TWENTY YEARS THE MAIN OBJECT OF ENGLISH LEFT-WING INTELLECTUALS HAS BEEN TO BREAK THIS FEELING DOWN and, if they had succeeded, we might be watching the SS men patrolling the London streets at this moment." (George Orwell: ‘Wells, Hitler and the World State’ - August 1941)
