WE at The Conservative Woman will probably have many disagreements with our new Chancellor Rishi Sunak, especially if he is of the tax and spend variety. But these disagreements, dear reader, will be about only the things that are relevant – namely policy, and economic policy at that.
Remember those days, the good old days when people could disagree about policy and not be called a racist or a hater or a fascist or whatever the latest term of abuse is? They did exist.
Not so for the New Left, however. The New Left should be distinguished from the Old Left, which was made up of trade unionists and folks who thought we should borrow to spend on entitlement programmes or capital projects etc. They made political arguments in a civilised way.
Meet the Nasty New Left – these guys are authoritarian, purists who will purge anyone who disagrees with them. This can include the feminists who believe there is such a thing as sex. These feminists are the new ‘out-group’ and are labelled an ‘anti-trans hate group’ and threatened with expulsion from the Labour party, because they fall foul of the Nasty New Left.
The New Left are also quite simply a bunch of nasty old racists. They are racists because nothing puts them in a tailspin more than seeing an ethnic minority dude (BME I think is the parlance but I’m not going to use that term) being successful and climbing all the way to be Chancellor. If the ethnic minorities don’t know what their place is, then who knows what could happen? Who then will be around to vote for Jeremy Corbyn?
When the New Left see a successful, ethnic minority dude it drives them absolutely demented.
The BBC tell me: Mr Sunak’s father was a GP, and his mother was a pharmacist. They emigrated from India to the UK with Mr Sunak’s grandparents.
Mr Sunak was born in 1980 in Southampton, and was sent to the public school Winchester College. He went to Oxford University to read Philosophy, Politics and Economics, and studied for an MBA at Stanford University. He worked for investment bank Goldman Sachs and a hedge fund, then co-founded an investment firm before entering politics. You will also hear a lot about his wife who ‘is the daughter of Indian billionaire and co-founder of IT services giant Infosys, Narayana Murthy’.
According to the BBC and the Left, it is very important to know what the father-in-law of the Chancellor of the Exchequer does.
So, watch as the ‘rich, out-of-touch billionaire’ narrative takes hold, with a nasty sprinkling of racism, namely that he is from ‘a family of rich Indians’.
Mr Sunak has a back story most normal people would admire. He was an intelligent, hard-working boy from a family of intelligent, hard-working Indian immigrants who did well. But to the nasty New Left he represents everything they hate: hard-working, talented, from a supportive nuclear family and who had aspiration by the bucketload. It will have them crying into their soya lattes for weeks to come.
