People’s Brexit Promises a Socialist Economy off the Coast of Europe.


Larry Elliot, writes in the Guardian today,

The left needs to work on its own plan to rebuild our economy, and that will be easier after Brexit.

 …there is an opportunity to do things differently, to exploit the policy space that Brexit affords and tackle the structural problems that have plagued the economy for decades. The right has its plan: more liberalisation. It is time for the left to come up with its own vision that would deploy every available policy tool to modernise the economy, rebuild Britain’s industrial space and spread prosperity more widely.

Such a transformation is much more likely to happen outside the EU than inside. That’s because the two most significant UK imports from the rest of Europe – German industrial goods and cheap labour – have helped to bend the economy out of shape by holding back the manufacturing sector and encouraging the growth of low-wage service sector jobs. It is possible to do better than that.

The economy is out of kilter because of “German industrial goods” and “cheap labour” (that is migrants).

The Socialist People’s Brexit will see off these foreign imports!

We’ll have our very own socialism off the shores of Europe!

  2. Imagine living in an Andrew Coates world? What would it be like?

    I can only speculate what it would be like, and based on his numerous articles I imagine it would very different to the one he would like.

    Liberalism works on paper, but it has no meaning in reality. We cannot have open borders on the basis human’s aren’t capable of living in peace, there will always be one group or movement attempting to crush another, and so if you have the upper-hand today you need to maintain it, because if you drop your guard on the belief others will warm to you and accept you, think again, they will merely replace you with their own brand of power and you the compassionate member of society becomes a victim.

  4. The intellectual bankruptcy, political illiteracy and sub-Stalinist nationalism, bordering upon xenophobia, of these “left” Brexiteers, is fully exposed by Larry Elloitt’s comment about “cheap labour”. This kind of digusting garbage can be read every weekday in the Morning Star, but probably reaches its little England nadir when the Arron-Banks-funded Doug Nicholls has an article published.

  5. I didn’t find a report of this bean-feast in the Morning Star.

    We await one eagerly.
