Labour: Rebecca Long Bailey wants to end the 'Gentleman's club.'
The Labour Mp wants to bring an end to men, in UK politics, from being the only ones to have major roles.
It’s been announced that Rebecca Long-Bailey, wants to bring an end to ‘the Gentleman’s club’ within politics.
She wants to bring an end to it when she showcases her Labour leadership campaign tonight in Manchester.
This comes a day after she was backed by a left-wing campaign group.
Ms. Long-Bailey will also showcase her campaign after Kier Starmar said that the next Labour leader needs to start ‘unifying peace.’
According to the Independent, her comment on this ‘is seen as a dig at Kier Starmar, her main rival in the race to succeed, Jeremy Corbyn.’ who is the only leading male in the political game.
The tabloid also mentioned that in Ms. Long-Bailey’s speech tonight, based on the ‘Gentleman’s club,’ she’s expected to say: ‘Where I grew up, Westminster, even London, felt like a million miles away.’
‘That’s why I want to shake up the way the government works and deliver a clear message to voters: we will put power where it belongs – in your hands.’
They say she’ll also speak on the fact that ‘the British state need a seismic shock, to prise it open at all levels to the people – their knowledge, their skills their demands.’
‘Proper democracy takes power away from the offshore bank account and places it on the ballot paper, so workers can have more and chief executives less, and we can tackle the climate crisis with a Green new deal that unites all of Labour’s heartlands.’
‘We will end the Gentleman’s club of politics and we will be setting out our plans to go further by devolving power out of Westminster to a regional and local level.’
Mr. Starmar, said that he wants to bring an end to ‘Factionalism’ in the Labour party, as he wants to unite the party.
He also hinted that he might want to continue Mr. Corbyn’s aim on taking many businesses into public ownership as ‘the arguments about nationalization make themselves.’
Mr. Starmar also said that he doesn’t ‘accept the argument that private is good, and public is bad; you don’t have a good private sector if you don’t have a very strong public sector.’
‘But my priority is making sure that we have tackled, or are capable of tackling, the gross inequality, and also providing the chances, so we can genuinely say there’s an equal opportunity for everyone, wherever they come from and whatever their background.’
He also hinted that Labour didn’t win the election, as the public did not trust them to ‘deliver’ their manifesto.
Mr. Starmar also said that during the ‘general election, I (He) didn’t hear people saying, ‘everything’s fine, nothing needs to change.’
‘What I heard people saying was, ‘we do need fundamental change, we don’t think our public services are properly funded, we do not enjoy seeing homelessness, we don’t think that we’re being paid enough, we don’t think we’ve got security at work in a way, but we don’t trust the Labour party to deliver.’
‘So I want to restore that trust in the Labour party, as a force for good and a force for change.’
Announced on Thursday, Labour said that 14,700 people had signed up and registered to become supporters of the political party.
People had to pay for £25 to vote in order vote.
Ms. Long-Bailey promises to give policies which are similar to Mr. Corbyn’s, including the program of nationalism and a Green New Deal, in order to showcase a ‘modern, democratic ownership.’
It’s noted that the Brexit Shadow Secretary said, to the BBC news, that they ‘need to unify the party and I think I can do that. we spent far too much time fighting ourselves and not fighting the Tories.’
‘Factions have been there in the Labour party – they’ve got to go.’
The Secretary continued to say: ‘I know from running a big organisation that if you’re going to change the values and the culture of the organisation, you’ve got to do it from the top down, so that the unifying peace is vitally important.’
‘If we’re not united as a party, we are not going to win anything by way of an election, but we also need to be a very effective opposition.’
