You are unhinged.
You can hate Tony Blair for going to war all you want, but his Labour government’s poured money into public services. That is an objective fact. Barring his first and last year in charge, Labour increased public services spending by 6% annually. The UK went from spending the 22nd highest amount of their national income on public services to the 6th highest to 10 in the OECD during the Blair/Brown years. The UK was during the Blair years the country in the OECD with the second highest rate of spending increase. During Brown’s Premiership, they were the country with the fourth largest increase (GRRR Austerity), making them number 1 for the period of 1997-2010.
At times it seems like Jeremy Corbyn and his followers on twitter are more interested in holding the Tony Blair administrations accountable than the current Conservative administration
The thing about a guy like you is that you don’t have a fucking clue what neo liberal means. Blair was neo liberal (let’s set aside his war) in the sense that he believed in free markets - meaning capital and labour into the UK. He saw the generation gap in the UK and coupled with efforts to weaken the Franco-German alliance in the EU, pushed for the EU to move east. This brought lots of young labour into the British market to replace the old, legally. He did this to keep the British economy growing, to actually pay for the increases in public services he wanted. He was basically employeeing the Swedish model on a grand scale, but you’re too fucking thick to see that.
Yet while on the one hand you’ll blast Blair for neo liberalism, which broader integration and immigration was a huge part off, you’re the exact time to throw around the term racist at a UKIP voter.
In case you didn’t notice @Watch_The_Break, the “Left” has been a mess for decades. That’s because by the 1970s British economy was totally shagged after years of Labour (and Conservative) policies. The “left” of Corbyn has been proven to be an unmitigated disaster in every place it touches. The softer left, that of Scandinavia & indeed Germany, has a stronger argument for success than these loopers you support. But Viva la Revolution I guess.
