Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction

The Ken Livingstone Saga

Is Ken Livingstone  about to demonstrate….. 
The Radical – 
6th April 2017 
…that he and the Left are bigger than the Labour Party ?
That the Labour Party does not represent the Left, 
even with Jeremy Corbyn as it’s Leader.
His challenge to the NCC & NEC ( National Constitutional and Executive Committee ) and any 
other Labour N’s E’s & C’s can get stuffed.
The Dirty Elements in the Labour Party have a right to expel him from membership for any 
trumped up charge, but so what ?
Hundreds of thousands of claimed members have not joined the Labour Party as such, 
they have joined  Jeremy Corbyn in fighting for social change.
When Jeremy Corbyn leaves so will hundreds of thousands of “members”.
So the really interesting question is not how damaged the Labour Party 
will be as a result of it’s actions, 
but how will Ken Livingstone a proven Leader turn the events in his favour.
What are his intentions ? 
There are those who cannot see Ken taking events lying down.
Because  a vacuum has been created now the Left Wing Genie is out of the bottle.
Rubbing up the Labour Party and its dark dismal and divided PLP 
may actually prove counter productive to their intended effects to rid any opposition
 to them as closet capitalists.
We have the People’s Assembly as an alternative political force, but without the Unions.
So if Ken really was setting up a broad left challenge to 
Labour as the Party of the working classes, would it be through 
an existing Left Wing Party or form a completely new one.
Jeremy Corbyn would not consider leaving his beloved Labour but others would.
The New Party would not want to have Labour in its title so 
Labour Representation Committee is out as would the Socialist Labour Party be.
The word Independence should be avoided as should Nationalist but how about simply
 The People’s Party which would distant itself from
the Tory Party of Bankers Spivs and Speculators.
Many trade unionists would press their executive to support is first and main campaigning 
issue, the Reform of Parliaments including the Electoral System so that no one over the age 
of 17 can ever say that their vote does not count.
Ken may have started something bigger than the Labour Party but 
only if he can gather support from moderists and traditionalists on the Left.
We are the People !
