A very good article Wilma, I

A very good article Wilma, I like it very much. In fact it's so good, and covers so much that interests me about the class struggle - about workers knowing things inside but not actually trusting their feelings yet, so not coming out with it and forming like-minded groups of angry people who can develop their ideas - that I can't think of anything to say. Curses!

But on just one tiny point. You say that THEY have been promising us better things tomorrow for thirty years. It's always "free beer tomorrow" with them, but Tomorrow never Comes. (Sounds like a Bond movie.) Yet I can clearly remember back in.... when...1966? Harold Wilson (prime minister in those days) faced with the never ending "stop/go" as they called it, of the already shaky British economy, and cheered on by his great cabinet of rabidly red socialists, (lol) was always saying that things would get better. (I think joining Europe was seen as the solution in those days.). All that's happened of course is that they've just got slowly worse
and worse, with a gradual speeding up since 2008 as if heading for a massive train wreck.
