It is no secret that Labour are agitating to get a General Election sooner rather than later, using BREXIT amongst other issues to drive their political agenda rather than actually having anything positive to contribute to a vital time in our country’s history.
To this end, they are selecting candidates to stand up and down the country already with the hope that by sabotaging our country’s future they can take control in Westminster and push the hard left agenda of Corbyn and McDonnell in to Downing Street.
A few weeks ago in Uxbridge, Ali Milani was selected to stand against the Conservative encumbent, Boris Johnson,(left) in what will be a hotly contested constituency if the boundary changes that are proposed become reality. Currently sitting on a majority of five and a half thousand, projections show a majority as thin as 500 if those changes come in to place, with Boris losing four solid Conservative wards , gaining two (Including the small ward of Harefield) but decisively also gaining two solid Labour wards that are in the London Borough of Ealing to create the new ‘Uxbridge & Hillingdon’ constituency.
Since his selection, Milani has had a lot to say – below is his latest piece from ‘Labour list’ with my comments in italics under his musings –
The world today is a very different place to what most of us may have expected just a few years ago. The rise of populism, Brexit and politicians such as Donald Trump means we all live in a distinctly different political and social environment. A little over two weeks ago, I was selected by Labour Party members as the candidate to take on the man who has anointed himself leader of this new right-wing, populist political trend here in the UK – Boris Johnson.
