From opposition to proposition

The parasite has nearly killed its host. Nation states which capitalism gave a progressive birth to, are no longer required now it’s in its decrepitude. The answer to this is not to melt down with it, diverted by the illusions either of petty nationalism or wide eyed internationalism. Both lead nowhere and leave capital intact.

Working class opposition to the blitzkrieg of the accumulated effects of neoliberalism have been confined to outdated forms of protest and oppositionism. Social democracy was characterised by a form of listening and large Labour Movement marches and pivotal industrial struggles could not be ignored by Parliament.

Neoliberalism takes no notice of them. It considers them pathetic and irrelevant just as it sees Parliaments as awkward obstacles to its progress.

The universal franchise was always a nuisance to capitalism in Britain, but their way round it has been to supersede it by putting supra national bodies like the EU and a new authoritarianism in government in control.

The will and interests of the majority are structurally kept at bay. Politicians have become advocates of personal or party opinions, not representatives of the people directed by our will. What we believe is needed is a new form of proposition, a new form of government.

We have to move from saying no to saying yes to what we want. This must not be confined to previous forms of economic alternative strategies, though these are essential today, but it is primarily a political question demanding an engaged answer and new machinery of social organisation and government.

The building of a new democracy serving all parts of the country and designed to enact equality, wealth creation and fair distribution of resources, is now an urgent necessity.

Our proposition rests on the ability to make a nation serve the 99% of its people in a new way with the creation of full employment, equality and international solidarity at its heart.

EU Is still trying to rule Britain, Barnier tries demanding EU vessels have access to British waters otherwise there will be exclusion from EU markets; that there is a risk of a no deal. We must have sovereign rights over our fishing grounds.

EU fishing company bosses talk about winning a game with respect to Britain's fishing waters; but the struggle over fishing rights is serious. Ask Venezuelans if defence of sovereignty is a game, or Palestinians whether gaining it is mere play.

The EU has realised that Brexit is no game; it is the serious desire of the British population. Countries are panicking about the prospect of no-deal, as it will hurt economies in ways they refused to accept. Britain has the upper hand. Get Brexit done!

Pandemic planning in Britain is a Mess. Pandemic planning is split between the Joint Biosecurity Centre, the National Covid Response Centre and the Covid19 Taskforce.
Four separate IT systems are used (Synergy, CTAS, SGSS and HP Zone), meaning data is lost.
