No Second Referendum

Sturgeon and the Tartan Tories are again talking of having a second independence referendum, just as the Westminster British government moves to invoke Article 50. The SNP hope Scotland would be independent from the UK and remain in the EU; or an alternative raised at the end of last year is the differentiated Brexit. This idea means that Scotland remains in Britain, but stays within the single market or has a special relationship within European Free Trade Area. The Scottish government sees itself competent to negotiate these deals.

In a poll last month carried out in Scotland by Panelbase for the Sunday Times, 51% of those polled did not support a second referendum. In fact support for a second independence referendum has gone down from 43% in last June to 27% this January. As workers we must get ready to oppose both of the second referenda that that opponents of British working class democracy would foist on us.

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.
