The Labour Party may talk of socialism but their Nanny State tyle of ovrbearing governmental control freakery rather than protecting the weak according to the political philosophy of John Populist Authoritarianism, Fear and Panic.
Socialism seeks to suppress individualism and impose uniformity by spreading fear and panic. This approach achieves equality by making all weak and dependent. Unfortunately it debilitates the nation

Populist Authoritarianism, Fear and Panic

During the final week of the May 2010 UK general election campaign (we're expecting another in October) the Labour party, in a desperate attempt to fend off a humiliating defeat for their failed government launched a campaign of warning voters not to support the surging Liberal Democrats as a Lib Dem vote would let in the Conservatives. Unfortunately the Labour tactic scared potential Liberal Democrat voters in Conservative constituencies vulnerable to the the third party into sticking with the Conservatives. By doing this Labour deprived the Liberal Democrats of the seats that would have made a Liberal / Labour coalition feasible.

As things stand the only way Labour could stay in power is by bringing into a coalition government along with the Liberal Democrats the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish nationalists who would all demand a heavy price for propping up a Labour government. The Liberal Democrats of course know it would be electoral suicide for them to be part of such a coalition unless they could secure an immediate reform to the voting system that would strengthen their position in an election rerun later this year.

So fear and panic, the favourite tactic of Labour leaders over the years has eventually led to their downfall by working too well. Let's look past the scare tactics at what a Labour government offers.

In Britain an often used phrase is Nanny State in reference to central government involving itself in the minutiae of individuals affairs. Labour is the party of Nanny State as its policies, recently dubbed by one leading liberal as "populist authoritarianism" are aimed as protecting all of us us weak inadequate individuals that we are, from the big bad world and from the consequences of our own folly.

In Labour's socialist Utopia we would all work for the state (or not work and live on state handouts) and the state would own or control everything "to ensure fairness." We would in other words all be slaves and chattels of the central government, dependent on their benign authority for everything.

When a Labour government is in power there is always much talk of fairness, equality and redistribution of wealth. Under every Labour government Britain has endured public spending has run out of control and the gap between rich and poor has widened because the redistributive taxes always seem to hit the poor much harder than the rich. That is the inevitable result of Labour's attempts at social engineering by imposing "one size fits all" solutions on a diverse society. In doing so it shows a catastrophic failure to understand human nature. Like Stalinism, Labour's philosophy is based on a belief that the sate can change human nature.

This is populist authoritarianism. They try to impose their will and accuse everybody who challenges them of opposing fairness and equality. In fact what the Liberal Party have always opposed is socialist arrogance, self righteousness and stupidity.

Once again as Labour leaves office it bequeaths to its successors a bankrupt nation facing a crisis of poverty with industry in ruins. This time at least we might have a coalition to take over. In 1979 Labour's failure ushered in Margaret Thatcher.

("Children always cling to nurse, for fear of something worse" - Hilaire Belloc)

The political philospher John Locke one of the founders of Liberalism said that the function of government is to protect the weak against the wealthy and powerful. Quite right. Unfortunately bourgeois socialists, the most elitist stratum of society, have never understood the difference between protecting the weak and tethering all.

Let the children cling to Nanny State, speaking for myself the only acceptable response to those who try to cow me with fear and panic and persusade me I need the protection of the state is: "Cthulhu? Bring Him On!"

Rotherham: In the face of such evil, who is the racist now?
Here's a question for wannabe Mastermind contestants. If South Yorkshire Police can mount a raid on the home of pop singer Sir Cliff Richard, two hundred miles away from their patch in pursuit of evidence linked to a single and unsubstantiated allegation of child sex abuse 30 years ago, why were the same South Yorkshire Police force unable to conduct a proper investigation into multiple allegations against men who raped 1,400 children over 16 years?

Political Europe Suppressed Under Washington´s Thumb Is Waking Up
In the aftermath of the downing of the Malaysian airliner in Ukraine, the Western media followed Washington’s lead and manipulated reports in order to make Europeans believe that Russia and Russian-supported separatists in eastern Ukraine were responsible for downing the airliner. In Germany, the press was an extension of Washington’s propaganda machine despite the lack of evidence from both Washington and Kiev to support their irresponsible claims

What Would The Future Look Like Without The Propaganda Happy Pills The arrogance, hubris and contempt for morality displayed by our ruling classes is gobsmacking. Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat politicians seem to think they are untouchable, above the norms and ethics that apply to ordinary mortals and that they are able to rewrite the laws of nature on a whim. We are not just talking about politicians here, but bankers and business leaders, the legal, medical and education professions, public servants, academics and senior police officers.

Many people who are part of the media luvvieocracy seem to think the anti EU surge revealed in elections to the European Parliament earlier this week will lead to an intensification of the EU ruling bureaucray push for the integration of the 28 European Union member states into a single federal superstate. A more realistic view is that many who voted for the stus quo were not so much supportive of the pan - European project as fearful of what will happen when the EU falls apart

How Can Mainstream Politics Respond To The Anti EU Surge Across Europe?

These stupid laws insult the public and threaten free speech

When the law forbids us to insult or offend somebody, to insult or offend a religion, race, skin colour or sexual preference, free speech and other important democratic rights are under threat.

Children Are Bring Given Chemical Cosh For ShynessChildren are being prescribed mind-altering “chemical cosh” drugs for conditions such as shyness and mild social anxiety, behaviour experts have warned. Young people are routinely being given medication to treat normal childhood conditions, it was claimed, despite fears over their long-term health. The disclosure came as it emerged that the number of eight- to 13-year-olds on drugs such as Ritalin has soared seven-fold since 1997. In many cases, pupils are being put on medication amid fears from parents, teachers and doctors over a serious deterioration in
Liberal? What Does That Mean?What is a liberal? Is it something to do with the kind of politically correct thinking that obsesses over minority rights while seeking to marginalise mainstream society? Is liberalism an authoritarian system that seeks to impose politically correct left wing ideology on everybody.

Blair's JourneyTony Blair's memoir of his political career, The Journey, is a must read for fans of another politician whose ambition and lust for power far outstrips his ability and experience. Solipsistic and self regarding, Tony Blair takes us through how he saved the Labour party and led it to power, how he charmed the traditionally conservative middle classes, how he spoke to the traditional Labour voters and earned their loyalty and support for his Thatcherite policies and how he saved British businness from economic catastrophe. Strangely he does not mention how he untimately betrayed all those groups.

Evolution: Theory, Fact or Fiasco?
Much as I have faith in Charles Darwin's Theory Of Evolution as a feasible explanation of how diverse species originate (The Origin Of The Species) it annoys me when science fans insist "Evolution is not a theory, its a fact."
