Devolution, Dissolution and National Sovereignty

One of the great binding forces of national unity in Britain was the trade union movement. National collective bargaining in most areas once covered England, Wales and Scotland. Companionship and solidarity between organised workers knew no boundaries and borders.

As capitalism sought to be more powerful it had to break this unity. The European Union was the great tool in doing so. The EU envisages a Europe of regions under its highly centralised, undemocratic control. So the drive to euro federalism and to devolution went hand in hand.

As Westminster and the City of London became more aggressive and destructive workers sought means of escape from the chaos. This is reflected in Scotland with the dangerous pseudo drive to independence and now the Silk Commission proposing greater devolution in Wales including energy.

No doubt we will have a renewed drive for the regionalisation of England as London and the political parties jabbering around the House of Parliament become even more detached from reality and the people.

Britain must have national independence and sovereignty as a united nation working in a new partnership with an independent and united Ireland and relating freely and peacefully to the rest of the world.

The leaders who seek to divide Britain and allow the EU to rule over us and the US to determine our foreign policy are those who now rush to back the extreme nationalist and fascist forces seeking to break up the Ukraine and deliver it into the arms of the Deutschmark masquerading as the Euro. Capitalism invents national sovereignty when it suits it and more often seeks to destroy it when it does not – Syria, Libya, Ireland, Venezuela, Ukraine, Iran, Cuba… .

Just as Russia is right to protect its interests against the incursions of the EU, so are we in Britain and this is something our defence forces should consider more carefully.

These are dangerous times and the relentless drive of German imperialism must be opposed. This means withdrawal from the EU and assertion of British sovereignty.

There have been SNP led governments in Scotland since 2007 & substantial increase in pro-separatist opinions since 2016, but there has been a drop in support for separatists, since the start of this year.
No to the break up of Britain!

The EU's vaccine export ban is potentially a genocidal policy, an act of an enemy. There are still remainers who would have us back in. The SNP & Alba after breaking up Britain would seek membership of the gangster EU.
Better together! Oppose the EU!

The EU wants to impose a vaccine export ban without saying it’s a ‘vaccine export ban’.
As usual, they play with language to deny their most unpleasant motives.

There have been numerous calls for Sturgeon to resign, on the grounds she has misled parliament. The workers of Scotland now should give the SNP it's marching orders, for attempting to create division in the British working class.

The defence & foreign policy review is to cut military personel; though total speding will increase with a focus on the technology of war: nuclear weapons expansion, development of bio-tech, cyber warfare, & artificial intelligence.
