Seldom are the choices at a UK general election as stark as this one. The outcome will shape the future of Britain and the fate of its people for a long time to come.

Corbyn and Johnson

On the one side are the Tories – not the traditional party of Disraeli, Churchill, Macmillan and even May.

Instead, they are a rabble of aspiring autocrats who throughout the campaign have hidden their real intentions behind the lying bluster of Boris Johnson.

If they win at the polls, Johnson and his gang will unleash the full fury and weight of unrestrained capitalism on an unsuspecting electorate.

The price to be paid for Johnson’s kamikaze Brexit plan will be the destruction of basic democratic rights and liberties, the driving down of wages and conditions and the sell-off of the NHS.

The intention is not so much to “Get Brexit Done” but to use the process to mug the UK population and march down the road to outright dictatorship.

If Parliament obstructs, it will be cast aside with the contempt Johnson showed it earlier this year when he unlawfully suspended the House of Commons.

Johnson is to the UK what the braggart Trump is to the United States – a man who is absolutely incapable of distinguishing truth from fiction. Both are the Big Lie personified.

The only way to stop Johnson is to vote for the Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell.

They are offering a radical programme of social and economic policies that run counter to the last 40 years of free market, neoliberal capitalism (although this word doesn’t, unfortunately, figure in the party’s manifesto).

Hostile forces in the state, the military, the City, financial markets and the transnational corporations are lined up to oppose Labour’s policies in defence of privileges, profits and the status quo.

A Corbyn-led government would therefore be, from day one a confrontation with the true power brokers in the UK and, for that matter, globally. A network of citizens’ assemblies will be needed to mobilise communities in support of a Corbyn-led government.

If Labour has had a weakness in the campaign, it is that they have not warned sufficiently of the dangers of a Johnson dictatorship nor put forward plans to remake the broken political system. Their policy towards Scottish self-determination has also been too inflexible.

Nevertheless, they have committed to try to see if they can achieve a better European Union withdrawal deal before asking the people what they think.

Only Corbyn can become prime minister in place of Johnson. Make sure you get out and vote because make no mistake, this is a turning point election.
