Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"The left cannot win in the UK because there is no real press or media freedom,"

Well, I'm the first to agree, but the BBC is on your side, innit? :)

The left today - in the UK, the USA and most western countries - represent the middle class transferiat. These are the people who are dependent on the state to get a job of the kind they think they deserve - one that matches their £160000 student load levels rather than stocking shelves at Tesco.

The real working class is not dumb and has not been tricked. They can see that "gender," "identity," "green," and "woke language policing" is not going to help them.

At some point we are going to run out of other people's money, and the non-tech, non-business university set will take whatever jobs they can get.

No, the BBC is not on our side. The BBC is very much not on our side, and hasn't been on our side for the best part of a decade - not since Nigel Farage starting getting free air time to peddle Brexit when he was the fringiest of fringe politicians.

As for the rest - it's odd how many working class people I know who would disagree with you.

Not all, of course. But then a lot do still watch the BBC.

The BBC is a far-right kook outfit.  Your standard has to be Fox News or OAN to think it qualifies as being on the side of the left.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
