Boris Johnson has been caught lying over the Salisbury attack. And Blairite MPs are up to their usual sabotaging shenanigans. Alan Woods comments.
Alan Woods, editor of In Defence of Marxism, discusses political events in Britain over the last week.
The Tories have been exposed as liars, after state scientists at Porton Down revealed that there is no evidence that the poison in the recent Salisbury attack came from Russia.
This is egg on the face for Theresa May and Boris Johnson, who had hastily – and beligerently – jumped to blame the Kremlin for the attempted assassination.
In this situation, Alan argues, the Labour Party should be going on the offensive and bringing down the government. But Corbyn has been unable to do this, due to the continual sabotage by his own backbenchers.
The most recent example is the hysterical anti-Semitism campaign that has been launched by the Labour right wing against the left.
This once again shows why we need to kick out the Blairites – so that we can focus on kicking out the Tories!
