Comrade

My reply to this morning's John Prescott email
---------------------------------------------
RE: Hello Comrade

Hello Comrade Prescott,

Yes John we can and should use this tired word more often. Thank you for your reminder on the upcoming Labour Leadership election. I have already cast my vote and there is nothing that can be done now. I had my doubts on my choice but your email and greeting justified my vote completely.

The thing is... Andy Burnham is not a Comrade at all. If we resurrect socialist vocabulary from the last century I would have to say that Andy "has sold himself to the big interests of Capitalism and bourgeoisie". He is a continuous representative of these interests albeit with the cover of Labour. That is why I voted for Comrade Corbyn.

And that is why I urge you, Comrade Prescott, to do the same.  

Best regards

Paulo.

Hello comrade! (We can still say that can't we?)

I'm going to break the habit of a lifetime and be brief.
This leadership election is nearly over, and it looks like it's down to a choice between Jeremy Corbyn and Andy Burnham.  I was glad I encouraged MPs to nominate Jeremy to get him into this race because we really needed a debate on Labour's future. And what a debate it's been! People are flocking to meetings, our number of members and supporters has tripled and there's a buzz about Labour again. But now you need to decide who's the best person to lead us back to power in 2020. And for me, that person is Andy Burnham.  From progressive renationalisation of our railways to integrating social care into our NHS, Andy has the ideas, experience and passion to unite this party and put our traditional values in a modern setting. We need a leader who won't just lead protests ON Downing Street. Andy's the best candidate to march us back INTO Downing Street. Because if we don't choose a leader who can win in 2020, we'll give the Tory's another five years of misrule to hit the poor and dismantle everything we achieved in Government. So if you haven't yet, please vote for Andy today. The future of our country and our party depends on it. And you'll make me happy too! Thank you and enjoy your bank holiday.
