Tories do Faction Fighting: Allegations of S&M Sex to Tax Dodging (or was it ‘Taxed with Dogging’?)

with 2 comments

Trotsky once remarked that unifications and splits are alike methods of building the revolutionary party. That’s a profoundly true remark……The combination of the splits and the unifications made possible the party of victory in the Russian Revolution. ….A factional struggle is a test of leadership. Factional struggle is a part of the process of building the revolutionary party of the masses…”(Factional Struggle And Party Leadership. James P. Cannon. 1953).

Unlike our respected Cdes who have been known to drag up people’s lines on this classic text by American Trotskyist leader Cannon, the British Conservative Party has no founding work on factionalism. Without this guide, in their practice they have gone from barbarism towards the population to decadent power struggles with no civilised intermediate stage.

Cultism:

And, Thank you Boris.

The best Prime Minster we have had in 30 years had to step down. But his achievements and legacy shall live on and will not be forgotten. The work will continue.

Today:

Dirty dossiers on S&M and affairs as Tory rivals turn on each other.

Sunday Times.

So divided is the party that at least two rival leadership campaign teams have passed the Labour Party a digital dossier containing a series of lurid allegations about their potential opponents. Last week tongues were set wagging when a prominent supporter of one of the frontrunners in the race was seen meeting a senior Labour official at the White Horse pub in Soho, central London.

The documents include a catalogue of claims about the likely runners and riders, including allegations about their private lives and financial arrangements, among them the use of tax dodges and loans. At least one private investigator has been hired to dig into some of the candidates’ financial arrangements. There are also claims of drug taking and the use of prostitutes.

A senior Tory party source said: “There are rumours being widely circulated about candidates getting involved in bondage, domination and sadomasochism, claims of inappropriate relationships and compromising explicit photographs that could be used as kompromat

It continues,

“It has even been claimed that one of the contenders requests that staff deliver their government papers to them while they are in the bath.”

The negative briefing has sunk to such depths that even the staff who work for candidates are being targeted. One aide is accused of regularly attending orgies, something that is alleged to have precluded them from receiving the highest level of security clearance.

Details of alleged extramarital affairs are also being widely shared with Labour by Tories desperate to discredit their opponents.

  1. You could have given Oscar Wilde some acknowledgement for your clunky re-working of his aphorism on America that it had ‘gone from barbarism to decadence without the usual intervening period of civilisation.’

    • This witty sentence in the post has such an obvious source that only somebody unfamiliar with the classics of the workers’ movement would need to point it out.
