A good result for European Workers

In the light of this news which is in line with the policies of UNISON and the TUC I just want to point out that my great grandmother came from County Cork and that for the duration of UNISON Conference I shall self-identify as Irish.

A Government which adopted the approach to management of the economy set out in Motion 49 to UNISON National Delegate Conference would rapidly run up against constraints imposed by our membership of the European Union.

The “European project” as it is now is a project to make a polity fit for global capitalism in which even mild social democratic policies are beyond the competence of national Governments. The left needs to find a positive alternative which transcends simple minded Europhobia.
