Miliband and unions

Workers create all value and wealth. Organised workers are the most powerful force in society and the most democratic. Most trade unions do not affiliate to the Labour Party. Out of power the Labour Party tells the trade unions not to rock the boat. In power the Labour Party says not to rock the boat. The Labour Party seeks to manage capitalism through parliament. Trade unions seek to represent workers’ interests against capital. Parliament is in the hands of capital. Parliament is controlled by the EU treaties and US foreign policy and the City of London. Trying to get more working class representatives into the Labour Party to get into town halls and parliament is an outdated, sentimental misguided project and a touching reminder of the worthy aspirations of trade unionists in the post war social democratic welfare society that has disappeared under the heat of neoliberalism.

A new state and form of workers control has to be built for the interests of wealth creators to not just be represented, but to govern and dominate.

In dealing with Covid19, Collectivism and Science have shown the way world wide; in Britain it's been Trade Unions and the NHS. Capitalism has shown itself unwilling & incapable of dealing with this crisis.

Neo-liberal managerial approach, from a neo-liberal political party. More evidence for ending the illusion that the Labour Party can ever be socialist which is based on a deeper illusion that the Parliamentary system and existing state can be reformed in the interests of workers.

The British Labour Party ending its own furlough scheme a month before the national scheme, and letting employees go, in the midst of a global pandemic and on the cusp of an economic depression - under new management indeed:

In the USA we see a contradiction between aspects of neoliberalism; i.e. between authoritarianism of the state repressive apparatus and liberal economics of cuts in public services. Both aspects end up damaging workers.
