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

If Cuba proves that socialism doesn’t work, does Haiti prove that capitalism doesn’t work? (And remember, Cuba is under a 60-yr US blockade while Haiti gets billions in US aid.)
