Marching nowhere

It was easily predictable that today’s march would be a flop politically. Few would run out because the Unions particularly in the public sector, but generally, have not stopped the job loss and capitulated on pensions and pay. The relevance of unions is at all time low. The weakness was epitomised by Ed Milliband’s speech, derided and booed by the crowds. Labour, he in effect said, will give you more of the same, but will reverse privatisation in the NHS. While the trade unions in their actions accepting worse pensions, pay and massive job losses accept the need for decline, so Labour in their words reflect the passivity. As this is all going on the Tories and the City of London are relishing the prospects of further attacks. To regain credibility the Unions now have to dig in in every workplace and give serious consideration to the action necessary to remove the economic from the power of the vandals. The predicatbly poor turnout on October 20th will be used by those who seek to avoid confrontation with the government as proof that there is no appetite for action amongst workers. The opposite is the case. Workers stayed away today because they want something more. The days of balloons and marches is over.

Meanwhile many countries and Amnesty international have warned about violence to tourists in the USA. RAMPANT CAPITALISM.

In 1983 Labour manifesto stated: “We will also open immediate negotiations with our EEC partners, and introduce the necessary legislation, to prepare for Britain’s withdrawal from the EEC, to be completed well within the lifetime of the Labour government."

@theworkerorguk Here is the Labour party election leaflet from the 1979 June EEC election. The very first one. I knew the candidate in passing who advised me in 1982 when I was just 18 the sooner we are out the EEC the better. 34 years later I voted Leave
