Are anti-Corbyn attacks prompted by politicians and their wealthy funders for religious or economic reasons?
Posted by admin
As the Facebook blog Jews4Jeremy is taken down without explanation, online articles with allegations of anti-semitism proliferate.
The wealthy and their dependents – professing all religions or none – will fear the growing support for Corbyn’s socially valuable economic policies – some named in a blog based on a Birmingham Press article to be published here tomorrow:
- a high tax economy for the wealthy,
- re-nationalisation of the railways (by not renewing private sector franchises) and private utilities in the energy sector,
- removal of all elements of privatisation from the NHS,
- re-introduction of rent controls to reduce the amount the state pays to private landlords,
- funding of infrastructure by quantitative easing,
- a rebalancing of the economy away from a reliance on financial services to the manufacturing sector,
- tightening of banking regulations (Osborne intends relaxing them further),
- re-introduction of a 50% rate of income tax,
- raising of corporation tax (currently at a historically low level) by 0.5%, as a means of paying for the abolition of tuition fees.
Such measures would reduce investor and rentier profits or even remove their sources, in the case of re-nationalisation.
Do readers believe the denunciations of politicians with corporate allies, or the statement by Jeremy Corbyn?
