The Labour Case For Brexit by Kate Hoey M.P.
I have written enough in the past about the vicious hatred harboured by the middle-class EUphiliac professional and academic Left who prosper by sucking on the tit of Nanny State for the working class. What makes me vomit about these emotionally needy, pitiable 'liberals' is their yearning for an authoritarian government and their near - religious certainty that all intelligent, educated people are left wing, in favour of REMAIN and totally committed to making Britain a province of Federal Europe.
Well I have a lot to do this week, to I'll offer our small minded, fearful bigoted colleagues this piece by Brexit supporter, the economics graduate, Irish born, working class LABOUR MP for Vauxhall, Kate Hoey who has nailed the case for Brexit perfectly here, and at the same time danmed the greedy, self - interested hypocrites who have hijacked the Labour Party and turned it into the party of lawyers, academics and public sector workers. Over to Kate:from The Left-Wing Case For Brexit by Kate Hoey MP
People assume that the Left supports the EU.
The middle-classes who have colonised the Left support the EU not because they are the Left, but because they aren’t.
They support it because they are middle class. No wonder they support it – it’s a middle class autocracy.
But on June 23 they should consider whether it is right or wise to exclude the working classes from politics by voting to stay in a system of government without electorate.
They can ask: is the EU building a safe and certain future or is it attempting a coup?
The EU is part of the global movement to remove democratic resistance to capitalism.
The project is to govern without having to face elections.
That is fascism.
Propaganda by the big capitalist interests – the IMF, the OECD, the US President, the World Bank – threatens economic disaster.
Meanwhile the socially democratic media – namely The Guardian and BBC – has tried to characterise the choices falsely by identifying opposition to the EU as either Right-wing or as nationalist.
This is a deliberate lie.
At stake is the very foundation of all workers’ rights, and of all freedoms throughout Europe, not just in the UK.
This Brexit referendum couldn’t be a clearer choice for the Left.
An obsession with Tory-bashing makes the Left talk of “a bonfire of workers’ rights” if we quit the EU, as if all social welfare comes from the EU.
But it doesn’t. What world do they live in? The fire is already burning, but it’s no bonfire – it’s a Europe-sized wipeout.
In defence, the working classes are demanding democracy, power, a say in how their own countries are governed and control over their communities. [ ... ]
Middle class Left wingers have always rather liked the EU, because it delivered just the right degree of social democracy to suit them without disrupting their wealth advantage over the poor – the EU and the middle-classes being resolutely devoted to the idea of cheap labour.
And, because it neatly by-passed the electorate, it defeated the man with a white van whom they hate and don’t understand.
It allowed them to take Left-wing politics that used to be about getting higher wages for the less well off, and turn it into a game about middle-class identity.
Central to that is the new middle-class religion of so-called non-racism.
It became “racist” for the working classes to ask why white European cheap labour was allowed to come and drive wages down. It takes a real middle-class invasion of Labour politics to put that trick across.
What do the middle classes really care about the plight of black families living in poverty in our inner cities? These are the low paid or unemployed whose job chances are threatened by EU immigration.
And what do they care about the plight of the migrants once they get here? What do they say about them after they have settled in and want higher wages?
“British workers (and this must include settled immigrants and sons of immigrants) won’t do the jobs… so we have to get immigrants to do it.”
By which they mean new immigrants, cheap immigrants. And the bit they leave out is… for the low wages offered. They won’t do the jobs for the low wages offered. This is the crux of the EU intentions on labour.
Just as the Victorians tried to make trade unionism immoral, so the present middle classes brand any worker who complains of non-union or cheap labour.
It was immoral to protect your wages in Victorian times, it is immoral now. Morality often coincides with middle class economic interests.
The EU supports the low-wage economy, and tries to create it where it didn’t already exist, for example in Sweden where it prosecuted the unions, and sequestrated their funds (as the Tories did to the miners) when they tried to get union rates for migrant workers.
Where should the Left stand in all this? It’s pretty clear where it would stand if it were working class.*****************************
I recommend you read the whole thing if you are one of those smug, patronising, self regarding brainwashed sheeple who thinks Britain's interests (i.e. your personal interests) will be better served in a bureaucratic dictatorship than they would in a free nation. But the people who need to read it will avoid it like the plague while singing the praises of attention seeking fuckwits like Izzard and Geldof.
