Time for Greece to Shape its Own Destiny

The Greek Referendum on July 5th failed to change anything. Voting both Yes and No meant accepting the dictate of the Troika (EC/IMF/ECB), meaning the referendum was a complete waste of time. It raised the expectations of the Greek people but did not provide the mechanism to deliver for the nation.

Alexis Tsipras at a recent rally cried, “I call on you to say a big ‘no’ to ultimatums, ‘no’ to blackmail, turn your back on those who would terrorise you.” This could not have been further from the truth, as a rejection in the referendum did not give the independence the Greeks require to build their own economy, which can only be accomplished outside the constraints of the European Union.

The referendum did not allow the Greek people to turn their backs on the EU, nor did it provide the means for the Greek workers to build their own future. All it offered was the same medicine, although possibly in different doses. The referendum will be treated with the same contempt by politicians and the EU as all other referenda – keep voting until you vote the way we require. The voice of the Greek people will never be heard in the corridors of EU.

The working class of Greece have shown courage and fortitude in voting against the austerity programme tabled by unelected EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. His proposals call for the privatisation of ports, ferries, electricity transmission, regional airports and most other state assets including, ultimately, the public-sector railway system. This is not about building the economy of Greece for the Greek people but the wholesale sell-off of the assets of Greece on the ideological mantra on neoliberalism, stripping the nation of its ability to prosper, to control its future and to build prosperity.

The Greek people have to say OXI, not only to austerity but to the European Union and take their destiny in their own hands, building an independent nation for all Greeks.

There have been SNP led governments in Scotland since 2007 & substantial increase in pro-separatist opinions since 2016, but there has been a drop in support for separatists, since the start of this year.

The EU's vaccine export ban is potentially a genocidal policy, an act of an enemy. There are still remainers who would have us back in. The SNP & Alba after breaking up Britain would seek membership of the gangster EU.
Better together! Oppose the EU!

The EU wants to impose a vaccine export ban without saying it’s a ‘vaccine export ban’.
As usual, they play with language to deny their most unpleasant motives.

There have been numerous calls for Sturgeon to resign, on the grounds she has misled parliament. The workers of Scotland now should give the SNP it's marching orders, for attempting to create division in the British working class.

The defence & foreign policy review is to cut military personel; though total speding will increase with a focus on the technology of war: nuclear weapons expansion, development of bio-tech, cyber warfare, & artificial intelligence.
