How should we think about Panorama’s attack on Corbyn? (For a video presentation of this article, click here: http://bit.ly/1OzzmFU)
I was absolutely disgusted by the BBC on Monday, because of the Panorama programme’s biased hatchet-job on Jeremy Corbyn. However, now that I have calmed down, whilst I am still disgusted by the corruption on display, in this establishment-backed smear story, I can now see the bright side.
The BBC’s Panorama attack on Corbyn shows that he is not unelectable.
That they should stage this hatchet-job, tabloid-style, smear-story attack on him, shows that he is actually a huge threat. It shows that the establishment are running scared, because someone is daring to challenge the status quo.
They are scared that a genuine left-wing politician may soon be leader of the Labour Party.
This would mean that for the first time in many years, left-wing ideas will become mainstream and accepted.
This would mean that first time in many years, the public will hear that there is an alternative to the unjust, unfair, and unequal society that the Tories have created- a real, viable, and much better alternative.
This would mean that for the first time in many years, the majority of the population will have a political leader and a political party that is really on their side.
This would mean that for the first time in many years, the majority of the population will have a political leader and a political party that is representing them and fighting to make life better for them.
This will mean that for the first time in many years, we will have a Labour Party to be proud of.
This will mean that for the first time in many years, there is hope.
Now, I am a big fan of Liz Kendall, and I have come to respect Yvette Cooper and Andy Burnham, but the truth is; that whilst they are talented politicians, they are all only really offering incremental change, whilst doing ‘business, pretty much as usual’.
If they offered any chance of the real change we all desire, there would have been Panorama-style attacks on them. As there were no attacks, this shows that they are no real threat to the establishment and the status quo. This means that they don’t offer us enough of what we really want.
The attack was on Corbyn, because he is the only threat to the establishment.
This means that Corbyn is the only one who is offering us what we all desire; what we all joined the Labour Party for: Corbyn offers a real step change- a huge change for the better, and a huge challenge to the corrupt elites who enrich themselves, whilst impoverishing the rest of the nation.
Corbyn offers the hope and the promise of a much better, fairer and far more pleasant society- the kind of society we have all dreamed of and longed for, but never thought would actually materialise.
So, this is why you must vote Corbyn:
for all those suffering under the bedroom tax
for all those forced to rely on food banks
for all those hit by unjust and arbitrary benefit sanctions
for all those struggling to pay the bills
for all those struggling to afford housing
for all those in insecure zero-hours contracts
for all those workers in terrible conditions, who will not be allowed to strike to protect and improve their jobs and lives
for all those denied access to justice, due to cuts in legal aid
for all those forcibly moved hundreds of miles away from their families and neighbours, due to housing benefit cuts
for all those who are homeless
for all those families whose relatives died after being declared fit for work
for all those who have no hope or opportunities
for all those suffering in communities torn apart by by poverty, and the resulting crime, violence, drug and alcohol addiction
for all the good, decent people you know, who deserve a better life, in a better country- your family, your relatives, your friends, and your neighbours
for your community, your town, your city and your country
for all of us whose lives and country are being ruined by the Tories
For the only chance we have of creating a fair, just, more equal, and altogether better society,
Please, vote for Jeremy Corbyn to be the leader of the Labour Party.
This is the complaint I registered with the BBC, as soon as the programme finished:
The programme was completely biased, with nothing but attacks on Corbyn and scepticism and disbelief from the presenter regarding Corbyn’s electability. Many ‘authority figures’ were brought in to deride and attack Corbyn, but no authority figures were brought in to defend him. Only his supporters from the general public were allowed on the programme to praise or support him. In the absence of any big-name authority figures on his side, this made his supporters seem deluded, as if those ‘in the know’ all supposedly ‘knew’ he was a bad choice.
The tone of the programme was completely one-sided; all anti- Corbyn. It was nothing but an establishment attack against a politician who is rocking the boat and daring to challenge the status quo.
The BBC can no longer claim to be neutral, it has shown itself to be nothing but an establishment mouthpiece; an ideological tool, spouting lies and propaganda.
I am disgusted and livid. I can’t believe I have ever defended the BBC, it may as well be Fox news, as it now seems nothing but a mouthpiece for Murdoch and other corporate elites.
