Leaving the EU can help us to fight privatisation

Barts Health NHS Trust which is already £135 million in debt (the biggest in NHS history) has just contracted out its hospital facilities to Serco in a £600 deal. The Trust runs 5 sites across London.

Serco already has a shocking reputation due to a series of scandals, including its inability to manage an NHS out-of-hours primary care service in Cornwall. The Unite Union has expressed concern and called for staff to be paid at least the London living wage.

Now we have voted to get out of Europe, fights against this sort of outsourcing and privatisation should be made easier. Once out we will no longer have to abide by EU policies. The privatisation of public services and assets has been enforced by the European Commission and European Central Bank, especially on those countries which have faced crises, such as Greece, Spain, Portugal and Ireland. There has been a great ‘fire sale’ of public services and assets across Europe, coupled with deregulation and austerity measures. This has resulted in job cuts, lower wages and conditions, and massive bills for taxpayers, as huge loans for private finance initiatives have to be paid back at high rates of interest.

It is time for those who voted to remain in the EU to understand how leaving takes away policies that our politicians can use as excuses for issues such as privatisation. That won’t stop it happening, unless we take action, but it is a first, vital step forward.

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.
