Labour Party migrates to Brussels.

It feels as though the Labour Party has left the political stage. Over the last few days since the EU referendum announcement, the battle about winning the next general election has begun with the Conservatives so far organising around Vote Leave and UKIP and an array of anti EU campaigners including Labour Leave, organising around Grassroots Out. Independent workers’ organisation against the EU are also steaming ahead.

Compared to all this the Parliamentary Labour Party’s pro EU position and the Labour Party General Secretary’s attempt to close down any debate on the EU within the Party as a whole, looks as though that party is not just consigned to a defeat in the referendum, but the next general election too. Labour is migrating to Brussels where TTIP and the special relationship with the US can be nurtured.

The Labour Party along with elements of the posh ‘left’ like Left Unity, and the TUC hierarchy are arguing that the EU can be reformed from within and we will all lose our holiday entitlement and jobs if we leave. Every time they do so they retreat further and further from the interests of workers and the nation.

It is almost as if a second bourgeois revolution is taking place. Those representatives of the domestic bourgeoisie in the Tory Party, miffed at their lack of influence and control under the terms of the EU and eager to penetrate more overseas markets outside the continent, want to take back control of the British Parliament and are gerrymandering seats to make sure a Labour victory is far less likely in the future. UKIP would like to win the next general election also so they can run Britain with a combination  of Hyacinth Bouquet, Alf Garnett, Basil Fawlty and Tommy Cooper might.

Workers need to show some leadership and sense on this issue, get out of the EU and run Britain in our interests for a change and with a renewed sense of internationalism.

Failure of government and employers to endure decent sick pay will lead to many more deaths. Trade Unions have set the standard by demanding sick pay and health and safety over the decades and particularly during this pandemic.

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!
