As a Mail investigation revealed yesterday, Mc Donnell told a Left-wing gathering in December 2013 of his belief in socialist insurrection.‘Parliamentary democracy doesn’t work for us, elections aren’t working for us,’ he declared, adding that ‘we want to bring down the Government by whatever mechanism we have’.The weapons of this insurgency, he explained, could include mass demonstration and strikes ‘to bring this country to a standstill’.But he is no longer in the political wilderness where he belongs.Due to the astonishing rise of his closest ally, Jeremy Corbyn, Mc Donnell has a central role at the heart of our national life.The Government’s announcement yesterday that the 1 per cent public sector pay cap will be lifted, starting with more generous settlements for the police and prison officers, merely inflamed the mood of rebellion.‘We have to discuss how we use the opportunity to inflict a major industrial and political defeat on the Government,’ said Matt Wrack, the leader of the Fire Brigades Union.Democracy means little to these self-appointed troublemakers.
I was mostly interested in making the whole confrontation an enjoyable experience for him. We dropped it pretty quickly and didn’t break up for another six months. Of all the warning signs I’ve breezed past, the pro/con list is my absolute favorite. In another, at Goldsmiths College in London, he gleefully pronounced, in his usual demotic manner, that it was ‘already kicking off’, and he hoped that in the near future ‘co-ordinated street action’ by ‘thousands of people’ would ‘close off Parliament Square’.What is so depressing about such calls for strikes and extra-parliamentary agitation is that Mc Donnell is betraying the tradition of Labour.This is a man who, in the past, has talked of ‘honouring’ IRA terrorists and of ‘garrotting’ a government minister.
He once said he’d like to travel back in time and kill Margaret Thatcher — although he later apologised for the comment.
That was almost four years ago, but Mc Donnell has not changed despite his rise to Labour’s front rank.
