I am increasingly alarmed by the neo-liberal, right wing, authoritarian direction of the EU. Had a massive row/discussion with my husband, niece and nephew on a long drive the other day. They are vehemently anti-Brexit and believe the EU is more enlightened and supportive of its people than the U.K. It seems to me the more distant the government, the more reliant on appointees and technocrats - the less responsive and accountable to the regions it represents. As Tony Benn wisely reminded us in presenting the left wing argument for Brexit… “How do you get them out?” Looking at Ursula VDL and her EU commission minions, I am not optimistic that this massive corporate run superstate can change direction any time soon. Thank you,Thomas,for another very insightful article. PS. I’ve shared it with my niece et al. 😉

Starmer's Labour is not centre-left, it is a soft Conservative party as opposed to the hard Conservative Party. The real socialists, Corbyn, was stitched up with the help the traitor Starmer. Both the UK and EU are turning increasingly into fascistic projects, with some "liberalism" paint slapped on the walls in a vain attempt to cover up that reality.

Bit of a stretch calling Starmer's New Tories Party centre-left. As George Galloway calls them, the Labour and Conservative parties are two cheeks of the same backside, with Starmer trying to out-Tory the Tories. Watch the Labour Files series from Al-Jazeera, or see how Corbyn was stitched up by New Labour in the Big Lie - highly recommended.

Well, if this marks anything, it is rather catastrophic state of affairs EVERYWHERE: “Britain will almost certainly vote Labour back into power “. How Labour is any different is not clear…

Let’s get on with it and call Starmer’s Labour what it is — capitulation.
