LABOUR MERGED WITH ANOTHER PARTY IN 1981In 1981, major Labour figures left the Labour party and merged with the Liberal party and so was born the Lib Dems, that are now in Coalition with the Tories in current government in power.
So we have Labour in coalition with the Tories, inside the Lib Dems, already.
THE TORIES AND LIBERALS ABOLISHED THE WELFARE STATE BEFORE
The Tories and Liberals together brought about in the 19th Century, the Workhouse and the New Poor Law that forbade feeding people left penniless and homeless out on the streets.
This, of course, is being re-run today by the Coalition with welfare reform that is merely massive extra national debt by the billion, to bring about the end of the welfare state, social medicine and state pensions.
LABOUR HAS MERGED WITH TORIES TODAY ANYWAY
Ed Balls, Labour's Shadow Chancellor, has confirmed that Labour in power after 2015 general election, would just continue Tory spending plans and be even harder on welfare reform than even the Tories and continue to enslavement of the young with Workfare Plus.
LABOUR BEGAN THE ABOLITION OF THE WELFARE STATE
In the last government, Labour began welfare reform, brought in Atos and invented the Bedroom Tax.
It was under Labour's launch of welfare reform that food bank use began to rise as far back as 2005, long before the Coalition coming into power in 2010.
So Labour is a carbon copy Tory party today, with Labour already in the Coalition, with the merged Labour and Liberals party now called Lib Dems.
THERE IS NO POSSIBILITY OF COALITION OF LABOUR AND LIB DEMSThe Lib Dems will suffer election defeat, as they are doing in many local elections, even losing their deposits, after suffering massive loss of membership.
A FREE SCOTLAND MEANS LABOUR PARTY CANNOT FORM A GOVERNMENT IN ENGLAND
A Free Scotland will mean that Labour cannot form a government in England.
Because Labour will have insufficient MPs against 299 Tories in England (only 1 Tory M P in Scotland).
Labour losing 41 Labour MPs when Scotland wins its independence from a London.

WHAT COULD LABOUR PARTY MEMBERS AND SITTING LABOUR MPs DO NOW INSTEAD?There is a new socialist party, I hear, that has had its inaugural meeting and now its first national conference and so ready for campaigning for the 2015 general election, called the Left Unity Party.
Labour could do again what it did in 1981, saying 'to break the mould of UK politics'.
All parties now, including Labour and The Greens, believe and enact Austerity and Welfare Reform.
Sitting Labour MPs,
Labour Party members could defect to the
Left Unity Party now:
WHY?The working class is not represented by the Labour Party, which poorest people fought and died to bring it into existence only about a century ago, as their political party for the first time in UK history.
Who are the working class?
- The working poor of all ages including men raised retirement age,
- low income pensioners
- Working poor includes women lost state pension at 60 from 2013, and
- disabled / chronic sick poor of all ages
LABOUR OFFERS THE WORKING CLASS NOTHING
Working class needing benefits being lost or never gained as legal minimum wage is nowhere near a living wage.
Benefit bill is 97 per cent working poor and pensioners.
Only 3 per cent is the unemployed, including adult disabled lost benefits as unable to work but deemed fit for work when they have no such ability.
Within unemployed are pensioners dumped onto unemployed benefits because of:
- raised retirement age,
- no state pension payout and
- lost or cut benefits for disability / chronic illness.
Benefits are a round robin of self-funding from the 75 per cent of personal taxation that comes from Indirect Taxes and VAT, even on food, and not a burden on other taxpayers (Income Tax only brings in 26p in the pound of tax to government from people).
LABOUR OFFER LOW INCOME PENSIONERS NOTHING
The state pension is not a benefit, but deferred wages from our youth and not some generous gift from government to be withdrawn at whim.
National Insurance on the first tax band after basic tax allowance, has been 12 per cent on annual wage all our working lives.
A third of a million women to start with, began to lose £43,000 state pension payout over 6 years from 2013, of their survival food and fuel money as:
- Half of women 60-66 are within the working poor needing benefits as minimum wage by law is far below a living wage and benefits to top-up being lost.
- Majority reason women 60-66 not in work is due to disability / chronic sick and those benefits being lost.
See if you lost most or all of your state pension:
WHY DO I CARE?After generations of my family voting Labour, probably as far back as Labour party's existence, Labour party no longer offering me and millions like me anything at all.
Disabled and chronic sick - never gained benefits - medically diagnosed.
Dame Anne Begg, Labour, Chairwoman of Commons Select Committee on Works and Pensions, said Labour thought other things were more important than the state pension for funding in their last government.
Labour did not bring back the 1975 law passed by Labour to guarantee the payout of pensions, that the Tories revoked in 1993.
Labour have not confirmed they will revoke the Pension Bill (all of them since 2010) and even worse to come from the Flat Rate Pension 2016.
With the end of Pension Credit in 2016 and a lot of works and public sector pensions having taken all staff our of SERPs or the State Second Pension, then what state pension I do get after 2016 will be massively reduced.
So get less forever into old age, even if the state pension exists by then.
Meanwhile, Labour MPs will equally get the 11 per cent pay rise from 2015 general election year.
Almost exactly the amount of state pension lost to a third of a million women so far since 2013, when women MPs, of course, kept the pension payout at 60.
So from a lifelong Labour voter, no more votes from me or the millions betrayed by a Labour, who actually 'breach' their trade description act (so to speak) by their name when Labour are not the party of the working class at all.
DISCLAIMER: I am not a member of any political party, just a victim of all the current political class, as are millions of people in the UK today.
