Candid article by John McTernan about Labour's support in the country: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/88f99af8-ed94-11e3-8a1e-00144feabdc0.html?siteedition=uk#axzz34DvUoQ2P
John McTernan has held a number of roles in the Labour party including Chief Librarian (from 1987 to 1992).
In his article John McTernan tells us that Labour is making a cynical decision to junk the white working class as they are "no longer numerically or spiritually the Labour party's base".
And what IS the Labour party's spiritual base now?
They no longer worship Methodism so who do they worship?
Do they now worship money? (we know they are intensely relaxed about people getting filthy rich).
Or do they worship multiculturalism and mass immigration? (I think we know the answer to that question).
