Britain is still producing wealth, at least enough for the Labour government to make us pay billions to the bankers and the EU, and billions for Labour’s illegal foreign wars.
There is growing, massive unemployment, yet the government is blocking young people from gaining skills. The government wants us to be mercenaries, not workers.
To ask whether Labour should move left to win the election, or ditch Brown to win the election, is to indulge in idealist wishful thinking. Labour is part of the enemy. To warn sagely against Tory attacks to come is to cover up Labour's current attack, to connive at the destruction.
Who is funding and encouraging the current wave of mergers, whose known, inevitable effects are yet more job losses?
Who has already published budgetary plans for four years of spending cuts?
Who is attacking – now – our NHS?
Who wants – now – to cut a billion pounds from further and higher education, destroying at least 20,000 jobs?
Who went to illegal war in Iraq? Who is sending soldiers to die in Afghanistan?
We must all act in defence of our jobs, our industries and our services. We must never sell any jobs – they are not ours to sell; we must oppose every voluntary redundancy as vigorously as we oppose every compulsory redundancy. The jobs belong to the next generation. We must all now defend our jobs, take responsibility, take control.
