Britain’s New Lenin, Chris Williamson, Shocked by new Grayzone Revelations of “sinister plot” to “torpedo Jeremy Corbyn”.

with one comment

“Every cook has to learn how to govern the state”. Attributed Vladimir Lenin, Will the Bolsheviks Retain Government Power ? (1917) (1)

Britain’s Vanguard Leader has a busy schedule in the coming days.

Then there is this: Chris Williamson Former Labour MP for Derby North. Animal rights champion and creator of popular vegan croissants, is appearing at the Way Beyond the Fringe festival.

Programme includes:

You can’t say that! Racism, antisemitism, ID politics – are there limits to free speech? With Steve Walker, Jackie Walker, Tony Greenstein, Esther Giles and Chris Williamson

What future for the left? â€“ Debating the way forward. With Lesley Mahmood, Dave Nellist, Steve Walker, Chris Williamson, Ian Hodson, Jackie Walker and special guests

We shall look with interest at what Williamson has to say about his new discovery:

This all hinges on the Renew Party (no, I had not heard of it either, unlike, say the anti-Corbyn, pro-Remain Change UK). * Claiming to lead an Emmanuel Macron style political re-allignment it was founded in 2017 and disappeared without trace in 2019.

Yet not without unseen, and so far unacknowledged, hidden, or perhaps occult? effects on British politics. Or so the sleuths of Grayzone can now reveal. Kitty has the lowdown on how “Renew eventually played a decisive but hitherto unacknowledged role in Corbyn’s downfall.” The Grayzone gumshoes have unearthed that, “a closer look at the origins of the campaign for a second referendum reveals a far more sinister plot.”

calls for a second referendum did not originate from the British grassroots, but rather from the obscure Renew. As this investigation will reveal, Renew was established by operatives with deep, cohering ties to Britain’s military and intelligence establishment, including a long-standing psychological warfare specialist.

Strangely, Corbyn and his advisors failed to consider whether those leading the push for a second referendum were truly motivated by their adoration for Brussels bureaucrats, but instead a determination to scupper Labour’s electoral prospects. 

Corbyn’s commitment to a second Brexit referendum should be regarded as one of the gravest political missteps in recent British political history. Rather than provide a popular alternative to the Conservative government’s floundering Brexit negotiation process, Labour aligned itself with a nascent, fringe political movement borne of the very elite British voters sought to reject

And they may have engaged in this act of willful political suicide with a quiet but concerted nudge from the intelligence services which saw Corbyn’s ascent as an existential threat.

That’s us lot from Another Europe is Possible well sorted!

There is a theory about why Williamson is obsessed with the historic importance and influence of an obscure micro-party, but I just can’t remember for the moment what it is.

Well-established rumour has it that when he takes charge of the Socialist Labour Party Williamson intends to create a new movement in honour of his hero, the Kibbo Kit, a camping, hiking and handicraft youth group with ambitions to bring world peace.

(1) The quote is a summary of this, “We are not utopians. We know that an unskilled labourer or a cook cannot immediately get on with the job of state administration. In this we agree with the Cadets, with Breshkovskaya, and with Tsereteli. We differ, however, from these citizens in that we demand an immediate break with the prejudiced view that only the rich, or officials chosen from rich families, are capable of administering the state, of performing the ordinary, everyday work of administration. We demand that training in the work of state administration be conducted by class-conscious workers and soldiers and that this training be begun at once, i.e., that a beginning be made at once in training all the working people, all the poor, for this work.

  1. A fairly sensible letter in today’s Morning Star! (Yes, really!).

    “Chris Williamson’s article advocating for people to join the Socialist Labour Party (M Star , September 23) encapsulates everything that is problematic about the left in this country.
    “The only argument Williamson puts forward for the SLP is ‘name recognition’ – ie that it has the term Labour Party in its title and the word socialist in front of it.
    “Nothing is said about the SLP’s size of membership, its constitution (eg is it democratic, centralised, pluralist, federal, open to affiliations etc), its strategic aims, its immediate policies, its international links and positions, its roots in today’s labour movement, or its position on many of the controversial and challenging issues facing us today.
    “Why join the SLP, as opposed to any of the other 557 other left/socialist/revolutionary/unity groups on offer? One may infer from Williamson’s article that the big draw is that he, Williamson, has decided to join the SLP. Amazing.
    “As well as the basic problem of the sheer number of left socialist ‘parties,’ groups, sects and micro groups on offer – most of which hate each other with a passion – is their domination by ‘saviour-leader’ figures, who are assumed to have all the wisdom, all the power and whose members are expected to agree with every single doctrinal pronouncement on pain of expulsion or split, and the formation of yet another left group.
    “It is a complete fantasy to think one ‘leader-saviour’ can issue a command for everyone to join one of the 557 sects – as opposed to any of the others – and expect everyone to simply follow.
    “Joining one of the sects is a complete distraction from the real need which is to ensure there is a mass political party of the working class, grounded in the real labour movement, in real class struggles, with independent class politics, and capable of winning political power.”
