Spain 2

Demonstrations in 50 cities in Spain on June 7th saw demands for a referendum on the monarchy.

This follows the abdication of King Juan Carlos in favour of his son Felipe, to try to restore the battered reputation of the monarchy. This  followed several corruption scandals and the austerity imposed by the Spanish government who wanted to use public money to save the speculative bankrupt Spanish banks. The king’s son-in-law and his companies are the focus of a fraud investigation involving millions in public money. The governing right-wing Popular party and the centrist Socialist opposition party are overwhelmingly in favour of keeping the monarchy. People shouted ‘Dear Felipe, no one has chosen you’ and ‘Referendum now!’

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.
