Labour ‘Must Target A Brexit Free Of Business Domination’
BRITAIN’S communists have called on the Labour Party to offer people a clear alternative to any kind of domination by big business market forces.
Communist Party of Britain general secretary Robert Griffiths told the party’s political committee on Thursday: “Big business and the Tory Cabinet may be divided over Britain’s future relationship with the EU, but neither camp offers a way forward that would benefit the workers and peoples of Britain.”
Most financial monopolies in the City and their voices in the Tory, Lib Dem and Labour parties would like to reverse Brexit or at least keep Britain enmeshed in the neoliberal rules and institutions of the EU single market, he charged.
“They know that key policies in Labour’s programme — such as public ownership, public investment bonds, state aid for industry, VAT reform, contract compliance and ending the free market in migrant labour — can be blocked by the EU Commission and misnamed Court of Justice.”
Mr Griffiths said Labour should put forward an alternative, which would mean “Britain leaving the EU and its single market, while retaining access to it on the same terms enjoyed by the US, China and Japan — if not better,” adding that “any kind of transitional agreement that maintains the sovereignty of EU treaties and institutions” should be rejected
The CP political committee expressed its concern that Tory and Labour failure to stand up to the EU and fully implement last year’s referendum decision could revive support for Ukip and the far right of the Tory Party.
