Corbyn Apocalypse?

Waiting for the result of the Labour Party leadership vote, I thought it was a good time to share this astonishing piece from the Daily Mail last month. To attack left-leaning Jeremy Corbyn, the right-wing paper published a fictionalised future history, a report of Jeremy Corbyn’s first 1000 days as Prime Minister of the UK.

‘Give him enough rope and he will hang himself,’ a Blairite had said when Corbyn was elected Labour leader. That was true enough. The only problem was that he had hung the country too.

Money woes: In this imagined future, Britain is £3trillion in debt, and the price of bread has rocketed to £5 a loaf

What’s interesting is that apocalypticism and millennialism frequently function like this – although we are used to thinking of prophecy as predictions of the future, perhaps it is more important to consider it as criticism of the present. It is is not about what must happen, but about what must change; and therefore, a successful prophecy could be not one that happens, but one that provokes action in the present which prevents the prediction from happening –  quite the opposite of the traditional way of thinking about it. Similarly, this function operates outside of “religious” contexts – although perhaps party political allegiances are “religious” as much as anything.

Among the ramifications of left-wing policy, according to the Daily Mail:

“One Direction went off on a US tour and never returned. Multi-millionaire comedians who had once cheered Labour couldn’t see the joke when confronted with a Labour Prime Minister who actually meant what he said about soaking the rich. The summer transfer window saw the Premier League’s biggest stars departing en masse.”

“With Corbyn abandoning the nuclear deterrent and slashing defence spending, US President Donald Trump announced that America could no longer regard Britain as a reliable ally.”

“When he sold our nuclear submarines to President Putin at a cut-price rate, Trump called for the UK’s expulsion from Nato”

“Protesting that he had never been guilty of anti-Semitism, the Prime Minister declared that Israel was the chief obstacle to peace in the Middle East, and described Islamic State as a partner in the peace process. He was photographed shaking hands at No 10 with the leaders of Hamas, Hezbollah, and other Islamic terrorist organisations.”

That last one’s my favourite. The first two points I don’t have a problem with. If only Corbyn could have abolished the monarchy too…

Awake and Aware Q&A Panel

The Awake and Aware conference 2013 (hosted by Project Camelot) was held April 5-7th in Glendale, California. It claims to have been “very likely the first conference of its kind to bring together scientists, researchers, whistleblowers with experience working in above top secret black projects dealing with Time Travel. We are talking about Jump Rooms to Mars, the Moon as well as underground bases and cities connected by high speed maglev trains where you go from Pine Gap Australia to Los Alamos National Labs in minutes rather than hours. We are talking about a Secret Space program operating under cover of secrecy that is going Interstellar and terraforming other planets… These speakers will talk about how the Secret Government travels… by using zero point energy and hyper dimensional physics to negotiate reality in ways we have only dreamed of…”

The speakers included David Wilcock, Jordan Maxwell, “Face on Mars” exponent Richard Hoagland, and Bashar, “a multi-dimensional extraterrestrial being who speaks through channel Darryl Anka from what we perceive as the future”.

The reason I’ve put this up is because of the various responses to the failed prophecy of 2012. Some  have gone for the classic “We must have prevented it” gambit, and Hoagland goes for the “The date was off – it’s actually 2015!”  But some of the others are quite novel. That we are moving into different “time-streams”, for example, and in some of those the date of ascension is different. Or that it’s still coming, but moves further into the future depending on our level of awakening.

And I love Wilcock’s admission that he was gobsmacked when we didn’t go into ascension in 2012.
