Delayed victory for the working class

TODAY, the 31st January 2020, marks the belated implementation (however flawed) of the decision made by the British people, and in particular the working class, on the 23rd June 2016 to leave European Union (EU). A Brexit conducted by a Tory Government is not exactly what the working class voted for. It is essentially the same one supported by former Prime Minister Theresa May with a few bits of window dressing.

The main thing however, is that at long last we are leaving the corrupt neoliberal institution that is the EU, despite the fact that the British ruling class has done everything in its power to defeat the will of the people.

The fact that a few City mavericks such as Jacob Rees-Mogg and former city trader Nigel Farage have been the leading lights in the Leave campaign does nothing to alter the irrefutable fact that British capitalism overwhelmingly supports remaining tied to the EU. We need not shed too many tears for those who might have to wait a bit longer in the passport queue when they travel between Belgravia and their Tuscany villas. Nor need we fear chlorinated chicken, we do not need to buy it if we don’t want to, in any case it is healthier than the germ-ridden organic chicken that comes in at five times the price.
