Readers’ comments: The Tory-Labour Punch & Judy Show

In response to Robert James: There are no Labour moderates, Ms Street-Porter,

With Keir Starmer at the helm MSM journos are enthusing that Britain has a real Opposition again. Actually it’s just a restoration of the fake dialectic, the Tory-Labour Punch & Judy Show. So yesterday, in the courtroom House of Commons, it was wallop with the string of sausages over the Government’s failures on PPE and testing. Starmer would of course know that ministers have an unenviable task making things happen with the sclerotic NHS bureaucracy and that Labour, if it were in power, would be in a pretty similar pickle. But it looks good, the Opposition doing what is expected of it, ‘holding the Government to account’ – whilst not plotting any radically different policy direction. Equilibrium is restored: a phoney socialist party opposing a phoney conservative party. The irony is that Jeremy Corbyn, to the establishment, genuinely was an opposition on economic and foreign policy issues.

‘The culpability of China, a prison camp of a country which the globalists avoid examining closely: they prefer Trump-bashing.’

One of the amusing sidelights of this whole business is the spectacle of ‘Amnesty’ International defending the Chinese.

Peter Hitchens has long argued that the Blair regime was far more revolutionary than anything that the poor old Marxist Jeremy Corbyn could dream up.

I completely agree. Our country was irrevocably damaged by that monster.
