PETER HITCHENS: The TRUE problem with May and Corbyn? They’re far closer than you think
This is Peter Hitchens’s Mail on Sunday column
Theresa May ’s Tories have always been far closer to Jeremy Corbyn than they like to admit. That’s why all their attacks on him fail so badly, and why there is a real possibility that he will become Prime Minister if the Government is idiotic enough to call an Election.
The Tories’ wild, Trotskyist policies on marriage, ‘equality’, ‘diversity’ and education actually aren’t much different from Mr Corbyn’s.
See their recent imposition of compulsory politically correct indoctrination in schools. Their spending and tax levels aren’t much lower than his would be, either.
And, while they go on about Mr Corbyn and the IRA, it is a Tory Government that is ready to let former British soldiers go on trial for actions in Northern Ireland , while IRA killers benefit from an amnesty.
As for Mr Corbyn’s nasty connections with Hezbollah, the May Government’s fervent and crazy support for Al Qaeda fanatics in Syria isn’t really any more defensible. I might add that anti-Semitism is not exactly unknown in dimmer regions of the Tory Party
This is why the Tory assault on Mr Corbyn has been so personal. There wasn’t really anything else left.
Embarrassingly for both Labour and Tories, some of his actual policies are often more sensible than Mrs May’s.
He is, for a start, a lifelong opponent of British membership of the EU, like his hero Tony Benn.
She is a lifelong supporter. Comically, neither of them dare admit their real views openly.
Millions of commuters have come round to his view that the sooner the railways are renationalised, the better.
And everybody now knows he was right to oppose the Iraq War, when both the big-party front benches supported it.
So let’s not get too righteous about the Prime Minister’s attempt to co-operate with him, in the hope of escaping from the hopeless mess we have got ourselves into over the EU.
It is a rare instance, in these times, of politicians at least trying to put country before party. It is not exactly a rerun of Stalin and Hitler’s pact in 1939.
I fear it will fail anyway, but – given the price millions will pay if we mess this up – it was a risk worth taking. I won’t condemn it.
The concrete-headed behaviour of many Tories, who have in the past three years become fanatics in a cause they couldn’t have cared less about in 2010, and still don’t understand, is the reason for this.
Bring home British troops from Afghanistan
Well, no, of course soldiers shouldn’t be using pictures of elected politicians as targets.
But isn’t the more surprising thing, for most people, that there are still British troops in Afghanistan, scene of one of our most hopeless and costly military failures ever.
Bring them home. A country that can’t control knife crime in its own capital has no business sending soldiers abroad.
Morals are a turn-off
Interesting that The Aftermath, a film set in Germany immediately after the war and starring Keira Knightley has sunk without trace.
It has many ingredients that normally bring in audiences – 1940s glamour, wartime reminiscence, steam trains, forbidden love.
Could it be that its admission that ordinary Germans suffered terribly from our bombing, and the ultimate refusal of the heroine to abandon her marriage, lacks modern appeal?
Still in denial
The Left-wing magazine Private Eye says the BBC’s drama Call The Midwife has become ‘a series of liberal editorials on medical and social issues’.
A gaggle of pro-abortion groups has praised the programme for repeatedly handling this issue ‘extremely sensitively and courageously’, that is, in a way they like.
Yet the BBC still absurdly denies any bias. A genuinely independent body must be created that can rule on such cases.
Police join ranks of the dope deniers
One by one, respectable and respected organisations in this country become mouthpieces for the well-funded and cynical campaign for drug liberalisation.
This happens even though evidence of the grave dangers of marijuana grows by the day.
The latest citadel to fall is the Police Federation, a major catch for these people.
Sergeant Simon Kempton, who speaks for that organisation on drug matters, called for an ‘honest and open debate based on results because prohibition has not worked’.
This is the standard fake claim peddled incessantly by the liberalisers, who use the word ‘prohibition’ to make an entirely false parallel between Britain’s drug laws and the failed US attempt to ban alcohol nearly a century ago.
He also made the usual fatuous claim that if police stopped enforcing the drug laws they would be free to pursue supposedly more important crimes.
Actually, the problem is that the police stopped seriously enforcing the drug-possession laws decades ago. And there is no sign that doing so has made them more effective against any other sort of crime. Rather the opposite.
If Sergeant Kempton really wants an open and honest debate on this subject, I challenge him to hold one with me, in front of his members.
A tragedy twisted into a bogus ‘terror plot’
We are told by some police functionary that 10,000 officers are ‘on standby’ in case of unrest. We are told that there is a ‘febrile’ atmosphere.
And about every ten minutes we are reminded of the supposed political assassination of the Labour MP Jo Cox, allegedly by a ‘Right-wing extremist’.
Well, if it’s so febrile, it’s odd that the turnout at Thursday’s Newport West by-election was only about half what it was in 2017. I think weariness, rather than rage, is the most common feeling.
But can we once and for all stop making the absurd claim that Jo Cox’s killer, Thomas Mair, was a serious political actor? First, his killing of a much-loved mother of a young family predictably achieved more or less the exact opposite of what he supposedly intended – and he would have grasped this in a second had he been in a normal state of mind.
In fact his abnormality is the most striking thing about him, despite the fact that it was almost wholly ignored by the police and the courts. News reports from the time repeatedly quoted Mair’s brother Scott as saying that the killer had a history of psychiatric problems.
His half-brother confirmed this, saying Mair would clean himself with Brillo pads and had obsessive compulsive disorder. OCD is often treated with powerful mind-altering drugs, yet I know of no attempt to establish if Mair had been prescribed such drugs.
But there is evidence he had been. He had told a local newspaper in 2010 how volunteering at a park near his home had helped his mental health, saying: ‘It has done me more good than all the psychotherapy and medication in the world.’
Just before his crime, he walked into the Wellbeing Centre in Birstall and asked for help. He said his medication for depression wasn’t working and ‘seemed agitated and treading from side to side’.
After he was caught and charged, his lawyer oddly said he would not bring his medical history into the case. Why not? Plainly Mair is a danger to others and his action was a terrible one. But why does authority ignore such vital facts? Does the Government want to believe, and to spread the idea, that there is some organised Right-wing terror plot?

With an avg. 1.2M voters per MEP & Britain with 16% of EU GDP and 13% of the EU’s population yet having only 8% (if united) say, whilst holding less than 3% of the various offices within the EU Do note The EUropean Parliament has no ability to make policy and has a Commission of unelected bureaucrats, thus clearly the EU is not even a pretence of being a democracy despite its protestations!Do note that many senior apparatchicks and even elected politicians speak openly of the ‘Post Democratic era’ with no sense of shame or irony and in complete contempt of the so called electorate – yet The EU & many of its vassal States/Regions are all too willing to slaughter people in Sovereign States, to impose The EU’s chosen brand of democracy on them!
Now as President Junker announced in his ‘State of the union’ speech 2017 the aim is to create an EU military force and centralise ever more of the decision making and control!
The imposition of a Government and policies upon its vassal regions such as the peoples of Greece shows just how far from being a democracy the EU is.
Just follow the recent EU display of so called ‘Democracy’:
France and the Netherlands voted against the proposed EU constitution in 2005, only to have those votes ignored.
Ireland voted against ratifying the Lisbon treaty in 2008, but then later under pressure & threats had to change its mind.
Greece for me was the final straw. It became clear in 2015 that it didn’t matter which way the Greek people voted. The birthplace of democracy had become its tomb. That was enough. I was going to vote to leave the EU when the chance came.
No political party of any significance in Britain took active steps to achieve a Referendum – the task was eventually taken by an Indipendent West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire who personally launched and funded the gathering of a petition of 225,000 signatures delivered to Parliament via Downing Street, thus forcing a debate in the House of Commons on an IN/OUT Referendum, which led to David Cameron’s first consequential rebellion.
It was due to winning that debate, officially opposed by every party including Ukip that David Cameron was forced to include a promise of an IN/OUT Referendum in the Tory Manifesto at the next General Election. The rest is history & despite no Parliamentary Party backing the OUT vote & Government spending Millions of Pounds of public money leafletting & promoting ‘Project Fear’ to try to persuade the British people to Remain just as they had at the first Referendum in 1975 – This time their lies and threats were not heeded and in the largest vote in British history Britain voted by a clear majority to Leave.
Nikki Sinclaire’s OUT result left Cameron & his co conspirator Osborne with no option but to resign, sadly some of the other traitors have remained to try to hinder progress to BreXit, aided by their corrupt allies in the EU and \eu funding and bribes!
There will be little or no change in Britain’s economic position, if we leave the EU, using a better negotiated, customised & updated version of the ‘Norway Model’ as a stepping stone to becoming a full member of the Eropean Economic Area, where all will benefit, as we secure trade relations with the EU’s vassal regions, with an EFTA style status and can trade and negotiate independently on the global stage, as members of The Commonwealth and the Anglosphere.
This is of course dependent on a modicum of intelligence on the part of Britain’s politicians and negotiators but it also requires the integrity of Parliament to uphod democracy and the integrity of EU politicuians & apparchicks to act ethically and without their normal vindictive mallice.
I believe Leaving the EU will be turned into something of a rough ride by the ignorant and the corrupt but I have no doubt that in the long run Leaving the EU will prove conclusively to be in the best interests of Britain and our true allies. I also believe that Britain leaving the EU will prove to be the catalyst to great changes within the EU and hopefully its democratisation as without great changes it is indubitably doomed.
Do not overlook the fact that politicians have plotted and schemmed since the 1950s and we have actually been vassals of the EU, when it was still using the aesopian linguistics and calling itself The Common Market in the early 1970s, a name the bureaucrats arbitrarily changed to EUropean Union in the early 1990s as they worked towards their long term goals of an ever closer centrally controlled Political and economic Union with its own anthem, currency, flag and rigid central control by its self appointed bureacrats towards a new Empirate –
It will take many years to rectify the mess our political class got us into and we have no other peacefull means by which to extricate ourselves than to depend on that self same self styled elite, who all too often forget they work for us!
One huge benefit of BreXit will be that we can negotiate with bodies like the WTO, UN, WHO, IMF, CODEX and the like, directly, in our own interest and that of our partners around the world, in both the Commonwealth and the Anglosphere at large; rather than having negotiations and terms imposed by unelected EU bureacrats and their interpretation of the rules handed down, as if they were some great achievement of the EU’s!The greatest change and benefit will be political, as we improve our democracy and self determination, with the ability to deselect and elect our own Government, with an improved Westminster structure, see >Harrogate Agenda<.
