That the establishment media and centrist/right-wing politicians still give any credence to Tony Blair or his views about the Labour Party says a lot about them. Fortunately the general public doesn’t take this same view.

The reaction of the establishment media in denying its role in Islamophobia highlights exactly how complicit they are in perpetuating racism and xenophobia. The deflection of only talking about the role of social media ignores the fact that the media isn’t a detached passive observer of politics,
it’s an active participant. Its coverage has the capacity to legitimise and mobilise the far right.

Islamophobia does not exist on the fringes, it has been accepted and continually perpetuated by the mainstream media.

The Blairites coalition with Tories who voted for cut after cut is an attempt to prevent an anti-austerity Labour government.

The new group of MPs just said that if Labour table a motion
of no confidence in Theresa May to trigger an election & block a No-Deal Brexit that they would refuse to vote against Theresa May. This
new party is propping up the Tories as they stumble towards a No-Deal. That’s their aim.

Anna Soubry voted along with the Tories to implement austerity, the economic policy that resulted in Brexit and the death and suffering of the most vulnerable. A new “centrist” party isn’t about stopping the Tories or Brexit, it has always been about stopping a transformational Left Labour Government from gaining power.
