No Independence in the EU. Workers Unite.

The “parcel of rogues” in Holyrood are pleading for an odd sort of independence. Being in the EU is no independence. Often we have heard the Europhile comment that the nation state is out-dated. This is a key concept in neoliberal thinking; that globalised corporations alone should have any independence. Neoliberals work to replace national sovereignty with the corporate sovereignty of massive multi-national corporations.

For neoliberals and the proponents of transnationalism the basis of democracy is to be the boardrooms of the largest companies and financial institutions, of unelected transnational bodies such as the EU commission and the European Central Bank and trade agreements such as Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA). The basis of legality is to be those shadowy Investor State Disputes Procedures exposed by the protesters against The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), CETA and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Security and policing is to be done through mercenary private security organisations.

Finance capital nowadays has no country and it is the workers who live in these islands who must defend the gains made in the centuries long struggle of working people, whether in Scotland, Wales or England.

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!
