I admit that this post is not based on one of my ideas. It is instead based on my wife's reaction to hearing Rachel Reeves on Radio 4 this morning.
Her reaction was to suggest that we now live in a one-party state that exists to support the City of London.
When the debate on Brexit was at its peak, it was suggested that the real aim of the exercise was to create Singaore-on-Thames in which a one-party state is created to support a very particular form of capitalism that most in the country are destined to serve but not benefit from.
At the time, the existence of a Labour Party that challenged such ideas made it easy to dismiss that suggestion.
But now the Labour Party has been captured, has become Labour In Name Only (LINO) and the TCP (Tory Continuity Party) and the realisation that we now face an election as meaningful as any in Singapore, where a single party has ruled since 1959, is shortly going to dawn on the people of this country.
My wife is right: that's where we are now.
Welcome to Singapore-on-Thames, the chosen destination of Starmer, Reeves and Streeting.
Thanks for reading this post.
