Britain's divided decade: the rich are 64% richer than before the recession, while the poor are 57% poorer

This country desperately needs a Labour Party that actually represents ordinary people rather than the bunch of "champagne socialists" currently on offer under Ed Miliband who are in fact little different than the ConDem coalition. Today's Labour party offer more austerity, more cuts and more of the same but with minor variations in application.
We had a party once, but that party was betrayed and finally destroyed by Blair, Brown, Mandellson and Campbell following Kinnock and Smith. They called us Trotskyites, Militants, Commies, extremists, infiltrators, loonies and numerous other names which cannot be reproduced in this post. However, we believed in certain values and ideals which placed people before profit, rights before exploitation, common ownership before the excesses of privatisation and the rights of individuals before the secrecy and control of the State machinery.
The people of this country have been betrayed by the political parties and by politicians generally. It is little wonder that divisions within society continue grow.
