Momentum

THE FIRST ever meeting of Harlow Momentum was held on Thursday November 23rd.

Momentum is a grass roots Labour movement supportive of Jeremy Corbyn.

The meeting took place at the Small Copper pub near Ladyshot.

A spokesperson said: “We packed out the Small Copper. Lots of enthusiasm, discussion and ideas from people who want positive change for Harlow.

“The Tories have caused real damage to our communities, slashing our council’s budgets, closing vital services and stripping our police force to the bone.

“As a group we will be challenging the Tories and their dangerous policies and we will be promoting Labour’s message of hope.

“We want to work with communities to help them realise, that the power to make change
lies within active and organised communities.

“Labour’s practical policies and the message of hope is drawing people in from left, right and centre and we want to amplify that.

“There were talks of Harlow community sports days, Harlow co-op film clubs, music festivals and more… watch this space!!

About twenty of these 'reds' looking to cause changes. Momentum is the outcome of marxist theories and has never worked, anywhere in the world. But, as usual, our loony left think they know best. Most of the people this lot profess to admire have never had "normal" employment, all been through the trade union system, and we all understand what that means. Look at the railways, £68 k. pa. for the drivers and it still isn't enough, says the union. What a mis-guided crew they are. Capitalism works, proven.

A sports day? That will do it! Waiting for the policy announcement of planting money trees in the town park.

What does Harlow Momentum want to do? Organise with the Harlow community to put forward Labour’s ambitious plan for Britain and secure a Labour Government that: Redistribute wealth and power from the few to the many; Put people and planet before profit and narrow corporate interests; Build a society free from all types of discrimination; Invest to create high-quality jobs and infrastructure; Reverse the privatisation of railways, the energy sector and public services; Provide protection at work and strong collective bargaining to end workplace injustices; Provide decent homes for all in both the public and private sector. Transform Labour into a more open, member-­led party capable of winning elections. Bring together individuals and groups in our workplaces and communities to campaign and organise on the issues that matter to us. Great news! for those desperately seeking these policy ideas - you can read the full list of Labours ideas waiting to be implemented online for free!!! They were hiding in the Labour Manifesto all along! https://labour.org.uk/manifesto/ Fairness is not a principle reserved for Marxist loony "reds". The idea of change coming in the most unequal country in Europe (https://inews.co.uk/essentials/news/education/uk-unequal-society-europe/) is surely one that is well overdue.

Most of these people probably don't know who Marx is. I think It's great to see a group of people coming together to make the town a better place. I look forward to seeing more activism like this and challenging our totally pathetic MP Robert Halfon.

Halfon has done more for Harlow than the previous squatter, Ramell. Pipe dreams don't pay the bills as the lefties are well aware. Spouting on about the manifesto shows a very gullible approach to life. Crafty bit of name switching, not to be confused with Joel Charles, of course. Vote for the reds at your peril.

The idea of fairness appals most people, the reds version, that is. Fleece the grafters and give it to the scroungers and wasters who wont work or support themselves. Vote labour, you're having a laugh.

Fairness does not appal most people. It just appals those who benefit from the system being unfair.

See Venezuela for a momentum project. What's unfair about the system then ? When the rich have been taxed out of spite, who pays the taxes when they all buzz off ? I was left with three children to bring up when their mother decided life was greener elsewhere. Did I go whingeing about depression or go looking for benefits, no, I got stuck in and made a success of the situation. Nothing "unfair" about my predicament, it's called "life". labour, hopeless shambles and incompetent.

Momentum live in cloud cuckoo land. Labour always create inequality by making things unaffordable and forcing people onto benefits where they stay. They're manifesto is totally undeliverable due to promises they can never afford which would lead to a 1970s Winter of Discontent scenario. As for equality - what did they do between 1997-2010 - nothing! Raising taxes over 100 times. As for Housing - they didn't build a single Council House when in Government for 13 years - something I highlighted in the GE. If you want a credible Housing policy - read ours in UKIP! It's won much praise!
