Ideology tried and failed
I APPLAUD Joseph O’Neill’s clear and unequivocal reasons why Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister would be a national disaster (Viewpoints, November 25).
Corbyn’s warped allegiance to dictators and terrorists claiming to be on the side of the downtrodden, yet cause even greater suffering, is irrefutable.
Although he’s right that radical change is needed, his extreme Marxist ideology has been tried and failed with serious consequences. Change can be implemented once we leave the European Union and have a Government directly accountable to UK voters again; without deference to Brussels.
Mr Corbyn avoids Brexit commitment while ramping up justifiable discontent as he did in 2017, but this time a new leader is promoting social welfare as well as Brexit; without remain parliamentary hindrance.
Boris Johnson has his faults, as the sanctimonious self-righteous PC brigade are quick to point out, but if he is so evil, how was he overwhelmingly voted Mayor of London, twice?
There’s nothing like responsibility to curb feckless inclinations and he has surprised many by achieving an acceptable withdrawal agreement with the EU.
While Mr Corbyn wobbles on the fence with other politicians, cynically ignoring the democratic vote and despite doomsters, Mr Johnson projects an optimistic British future.
We urgently need a Government with a mandate to take responsibility and govern. Regrettably, as a previous Labour supporter I can only see the modified Conservative Party providing the necessary leadership! Bill Newham, Worsley
