Marching nowhere

It was easily predictable that today’s march would be a flop politically. Few would run out because the Unions particularly in the public sector, but generally, have not stopped the job loss and capitulated on pensions and pay. The relevance of unions is at all time low. The weakness was epitomised by Ed Milliband’s speech, derided and booed by the crowds. Labour, he in effect said, will give you more of the same, but will reverse privatisation in the NHS. While the trade unions in their actions accepting worse pensions, pay and massive job losses accept the need for decline, so Labour in their words reflect the passivity. As this is all going on the Tories and the City of London are relishing the prospects of further attacks. To regain credibility the Unions now have to dig in in every workplace and give serious consideration to the action necessary to remove the economic from the power of the vandals. The predicatbly poor turnout on October 20th will be used by those who seek to avoid confrontation with the government as proof that there is no appetite for action amongst workers. The opposite is the case. Workers stayed away today because they want something more. The days of balloons and marches is over.

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!
