Calm Down DoD I am not going to write about the Tory Party becoming the new communist party; but what I do want to write about is where I see the party going in the future. This blog will concern the rank and file much more than the Westminster party, which I feel, is already going in the direction I will lay before you.
Now I know I am a bit out of date referring to her, but I just can’t get Jacqui Smith out of my mind, not her cleavage I might add, but her comment that she would not feel safe walking the streets of London. This comment utterly appalled me and I think shows us that labour has truly lost its ideological roots. It really upsets me to think of often a vulnerable member of society say the young or old, walking in fear on our streets. Those with money can afford stab vests for their children, or to move out of the city, leaving those in need in fear.
We need to be that party, the party that cares for those who need help helping themselves, and yes sometimes just helping because we can and they need it. What I hear coming from HQ really inspires me and is the reason I stay in the party, talking to many party members on the ground makes me want to run a mile away, but I shall stay and fight for my corner or conservatism.
We all need to become more comfortable with making sure society, yes it does exist, works for everyone, and I think it is with conservative ideology of increased self reliance, localisation, and more effective reduced state intervention that his can be achieved. Thatcher managed to engage even those poorest in society whilst her social policies left much to be desired, people were inspired by conservative principles. We have to champion Social Conservatism now, New Labour’s approach is failing to achieve anymore.
The rank and file need to stop putting voters off with the toffish image we sometimes give out and join the Westminster party and become the new party of everyone, not just those with.
We bring those at the bottom up, labour brings those at the top down.
