Elites Show “disdain” for Yellow jacket British Supporters Say Counterfire. 

Yet the liberal establishment, which has been such a strong proponent of globalisation and its consequences, seems incapable of recognising the reasons for opposition and anger, whether from the gilets jaunes in France or the Leave voters in large parts of Britain. Their disdain is palpable.

All this shows politics can’t be left to the elites. The mass of working people have to shape the future – not one based on war, competition and misery.

  1. Protesters who want to see ‘British folk to be put before migrants’ will take to the streets of Leeds later this month.

    The right-wing group which call themselves the ‘yellow vest movement’ are inviting people to join them to take part in a demonstration, which begins at midday on Saturday, January 19.

  3. http://www.socialistworker.co.uk has a phot of their nation conference which seems to show about a hundred people. It’s not even a Guy Smallman special with the caption ” a section of the hundreds who packed the meeting”. He was the only photo journalist without a wide angle lens.

  4. Kimber has not lost his touch for immortal prose though, “The Yellow Vest movement in France roared back into action with renewed vigour last Saturday. ”

    “The Yellow Vest movement is rooted in relentless campaigning in local areas.”

    Alas even Kimber has to note,

    “There is a battle for the soul of the Yellow Vests. Various fascists in Britain have tried to claim it.”…..
