The Anonymous Widower

If You’re Gonna Go, You Better Go Now!

Suppose, you ran a public company or perhaps a hospital and you made a very big strategic mistake, you would probably resign.

The classic case is the career of Gerald Ratner, summed up in Wikipedia like this.

Gerald Irving Ratner is a British businessman and motivational speaker. He was formerly chief executive of the major British jewellery company Ratners Group (now the Signet Group). He achieved notoriety after making a speech in which he jokingly denigrated two of the company’s products. He currently speaks around the world at corporate and promotional events.

So wouldn’t you think after his disastrous policies and performance in the 2019 General Election, Jeremy Corbyn should have resigned?

After all in recent times, we have seen these political resignations after performing badly in General Elections or a Referendum.

  • David Cameron resigned after the EU Membership Referendum in 2016, went badly wrong.
  • Jo Swinson resigned immediately after losing her seat in Parliament last week.
  • Michael Foot resigned days after his heavy defeat in the 1983 General Election.
  • John Major resigned soon after his heavy defeat in the 1997 General Election.

But you have to remember that Corbyn is a Marxist and Marxists (and Fascists for that matter) hang on until they are forced out, die of natural causes or die of something much worse.

Take your favourite Marxist or Fascist dictator and answer these questions.

  • Did they ever moderate their views?
  • Did they ever resign gracefully?
  • Did they ever accept advice from elder statesmen with experience?
  • Do they ever listen to people with opposing views?
  • Did their country prosper, whilst they were in charge?

Most usually score straight Nos to all these questions.

Incidentally, I have never heard so many adverse comments about a party leader , who has just lost an election from his fellow MPs, as I have heard and read about Corbyn in the last couple of days.

As an example, the long serving Margaret Hodge said this.

Corbyn talking about a period of ‘reflection’.

I’ve reflected. You failed. Please stand down.

That’s pretty direct.

This saga is better than any soap opera.

Will the new leader support the The People’s Front for Judea?

Jeremy Corbyn: ‘I Will Not Lead Labour At Next Election’

This quote of Jeremy Corbyn is the title of this article on the BBC.

This is the first three paragraphs.

Jeremy Corbyn has said he will not lead Labour into the next election, following a “very disappointing night” for his party.

He said he would stay on as leader during a “process of reflection” on the result, which a BBC forecast says will be its worst for decades.

He added that the issue of Brexit had “polarised” politics and “overridden so much of normal political debate”.

The article also says others in Labour, blame his leadership.

Corbyn should realise that his ultra-Marxist agenda and fence-sitting  on Brexit, has been overwhelmingly rejected by the electorate.

He should resign now and retire to his allotment.

But then Marxists don’t resign, they hang on and make matters worse!

Do The British Like Marxism?

If the Exit Poll produced by the BBC, ITV and Sky is correct, the Tories will have a majority of 86.

In the General Election of 1983, Michael Foot, who was not as far to the left as Jeremy Corbyn won 209 seats.

The Exit Poll is showing that Corbyn will win only 191 seats.

I don’t think the British public like Marxism, especially when it comes from someone in London, who went to a posh school.
