Britain Must Unite Under New Constitution

The result of the Scotland referendum was decisive and welcome.

In many ways the option voted on was a false choice. Like the rest of Britain to be independent we need to be out of the EU and remove the control of our economy and banks from foreign powers.

To express the democratic will of the people Parliaments need to be free to decide. Neither Westminster, Holyrood nor Cardiff currently are.

If you want a vision of what socialism feels like then Scotland showed it. People fiercely debating the future of their country every day and feeling a sense of ownership and control in their hands.

This is what socialism is, the majority of the people determining the direction of our country.

We cannot do this across Britain because we have no clear constitution or structures through which to exercise our will.

The challenge ahead is to create a new constitution and new structures of governance that enable the majority to rule in their own interests. The hidden hand of the markets and the shady deals of the board rooms that determine our lives must be rejected.

Ireland must be united. Britain must be united.

Increasingly shrill calls for the break up of Britain into regions or even City states must be rejected. The Scottish vote gave an impetus to further unity, not fragmented separatism

In dealing with Covid19, Collectivism and Science have shown the way world wide; in Britain it's been Trade Unions and the NHS. Capitalism has shown itself unwilling & incapable of dealing with this crisis.

Neo-liberal managerial approach, from a neo-liberal political party. More evidence for ending the illusion that the Labour Party can ever be socialist which is based on a deeper illusion that the Parliamentary system and existing state can be reformed in the interests of workers.

The British Labour Party ending its own furlough scheme a month before the national scheme, and letting employees go, in the midst of a global pandemic and on the cusp of an economic depression - under new management indeed:

In the USA we see a contradiction between aspects of neoliberalism; i.e. between authoritarianism of the state repressive apparatus and liberal economics of cuts in public services. Both aspects end up damaging workers.
