The rationality of the British worker: a bulwark against terrorism and racism

The killing of drummer Lee Rigby has again shown the wish of terrorists and racist extremists to create tension and hatred between the white population and other communities of our nation, particularly the Muslims. The terrorists see themselves already at war with anyone who does not share their views and religious interpretation. Extremists like the EDL and BNP use the murder to create animosity and division.

Fortunately a long history of trade unionism and the legacy of  industry and its roots in science and the enlightenment have left a culture among workers which is too rational, humane and sceptical to fall into the trap of hatred for fellow citizens who look different or have another religion. The period of history when Protestants fought Catholics has also resulted in a love of tolerance. Britons did not follow Mosley when tragically many in Europe fell prey to fascist propaganda.

The security of our nation depends more on our inclusive, rational culture than any other measure. We must defend it and nurture it.

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
