No2EU Vanity Politics Part 2: Breaking UKIP’s “Monopoly”.

with one comment

Breaking “UKIP Monopoly”. 

“The neoliberal Tory-boys of UKIP should not have a monopoly for opposing a corporate-dominated, anti-democratic EU whose policies they largely support.”

9 September 2013

“The No2EU campaign will be standing in the 2014 Euro elections under the slogan ‘No2EU -Yes to Workers’ Rights’.

“Our movement created the basis for democracy in the 19th century with The Chartists and the demand for universal suffrage which is now being taken from us in the 21st century by the EU.

“The only rational course is to leave the EU and rebuild Britain with socialist policies,” he said.

No2EU TUC fringe meeting
Yes to workers’ rights!

As the myth of ‘Social Europe’ is finally exposed how can workers reclaim their rights?

Monday September 9 at lunchtime

Venue: The Hermitage Hotel, Clifton Suite, Bournemouth

Speakers: RMT general secretary Bob Crow
John Hendy QC trade union rights lawyer
Former Labour MP Dave Nellist
Communist Party chair Bill Greenshields

It is sad to see an old comrade, Geoff Martin, involved in this Vanity Politics.

Who will support this?

That is, apart from Bob Crow, the Communist Party of Britain, and Dave Nellist’s  Socialist Party.

More on this sorry tale here.

  1. The unions should keep out of politics and concentrate on looking after members. Something they are very publicly failing at all too often.
