Join The Labour Party To Make A Difference

Recommended Posts

Housepricecrash I'm a young member of the Labour Party and am writing to encourage you to join. There are not many young ones like me in the party these days but I want to start a housing affordability campaign of youth members and have not got support on it yet so do any of you lot want to join and we can organize something by PMing. A good chance for us with a problem with house prices to push our point more strongly within the party apparatus. How about it all you bears.

Interesting idea. Do you think that Blair would actually listen to lowly party members, though? I mean, most got so pissed off with NuLab becoming ToryLite that they quit rather than keep paying dues, so to me that doesn't bode well for trying to change anything.

New Labour. It ends in failure.

Explain to me why membership of Labour is at its lowest since 1945? There are even fewer members than in 1983 when some political critics claimed Labour was written off as history.

Labour has had decades to introduce land value taxes or some other means of curbing skyrocketing house prices but they have totally rejected these ideas as not being within the ethos of Labour ideology. Since 1997 Britain has had the biggest house price rise in history factoring out inflation and BTL investors have never had things so good.

I see it as downright insolence for Labour to have the audacity to advertise here.

Yes I do but we are mainly dominated by old f**** who were reared in public housing and donnot see a problem with those blessed young ones who can always stay at home to look after them instead of getting a house. A few quid a year on membership (say you're unwaged if you like) and all that influence must be a goer? Yes the leadership will listen but noone is campaigning on houses in the party as far as I know.

If you can't beat us join us and change us? Yes, that's why I'm a member. Be real about it.

You need to get out more often! When was the last time labour did anything that was democratic?

I donut agree. The leaders just people open to influence!!! I'm saying is its worth a try and if it don't work and we get peeved we can always resign on mass and report it to the media at a sensitive time of course and switch support the LDs or something? See waht I'm sayin? Don't let your prejudices blind you to this chance.

100 members going on a single issue all at the same time will get in the media I can bet you

There were over 1 million people marching through the streets of London against the war and oh yes we went did we not. So what make you think 100 people can make a difference and change opinion to our elected dictatorship?

No, you are mainly dominated by middle aged careerists, affluent people on the make. Most lost any desire to help others but found that politics is more fun and gets more 'babes' than going back to being a barrister.

The Labour leadership are happily investing in BTL's and don't care what anyone thinks.

Look that was standing with the yanks and we all knew there was no chance of getting anywhere on that within the party and we all know where Brown and Blair stand on that. But social domestic stuff is different. God no wonder you lot havenot got anywhere on this housing lark yet! Talk about politically disconnected. An no grassroots is still mainly WC in my manor so try going to the conference when you are a member and you will see that. People like Prescott and many others still listen strongly to grassroots. Brown is very NuLab but vulnerable to grassroots stuff too IMPO.

Any you are in the same party as these people? What are you trying to say - we have to cosy up to the Yanks if they ask us to spend billions of dollars and thousands of lives on a war, but its ok because we can be all pink and fluffy on social policy? ********.

Ok let’s talk about domestic issues. When first elected your labour party promised not to raise taxes, and true to their promise they never they just removed everyone’s individual tax allowance during their first year. Then there was education education education. Did they not promise that they would not introduce top up fees? Can you afford to go to uni now?

I take that as a compliment although I am not a NuLabour supporter. Reminds me of the YS in the early sixties who had more mouth than brains. ;)

That`s a joke Prescott was on the executive of the NUM in the sixties when they tried to bring down their own Socialist Government.

In 1997 I was a member of the Labour party. At the time of the General Election that year I was in a student hall at uni, how we cheered when Blair won by a landslide and Portillo lost to Stephen Twigg.

In 2006 I haven't been a member for years and years. I feel completely and utterly cheated and short-changed. The Labour party are now almost as sleazy and corrupt as the Conservatives under Major. Blair and Brown have presided over the greatest credit-driven excess ever, resulting in a culture of repulsive greed and decadence. They are "relaxed" about the filthy rich getting richer because they want to be rich themselves.

I've come to realise that "the politics of envy" - that knee-jerk far-right slogan - is true when it comes to many of the present Labour party. Their moral values would put them right at home with old-school Tories. They make me sick to my stomach.

You can stick your Labout party where the sun doesn't shine. I'm certainly not going to get conned again. You are as naive as I and many others were in 1997. If I were you I'd stand for a local government election where you live on the platform you're talking about. This way you will get to work out and hone your arguments and you will draw a lot of press attention. Take it from there. You are wasting your time with the Labour party.

Follow Gordon's lead and be entrepreneurial - start your own party. Use the internet. Do that and lots of us will be wishing you well.

Must admit, I'm always on the lookout for new opps.

If you can get Toony to say 'Davey loves Shazey more than Weetobix with choccy' at his next public, telivised outing then yes, we'll both sign up forever just for the crack.

Please dont give up, there is the potential for this to be an interesting and amusing thread. If this is an attempt at entryism you need to try a bit harder. The BNP were far better at finding common ground with attitudes on the forum - and were left in the main forum for far longer.
