PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction

THE CASE AGAINST A CUSTOMS UNION WITH THE EU- 

TU
The ‘freedom’ of movement of labour is a misnomer.
 A more accurate description would be the ‘enforced’ movement of labour”.
 
“The need for a clean break with the EU is obvious because planning would not be possible if we ‘leave’ the EU but remain in the single market with its suffocating mechanisms embodied in the four ‘freedoms of movement’: freedom of movement of capital, goods, services and labour.
 The most pernicious of these is the free movement of labour for it conjures up images of breaking chains and setting workers free when the facts are precisely the opposite.

“a customs union agreement with the EU would almost certainly prevent British governments from making mutually beneficial trade and cooperation agreements with growing and developing economies around the world.”

A plan, as the Labour Manifesto suggests, for full employment and skills development and high tech manufacturing with re-established public services and national rail, requires we end the madness of the enforced migration of labour and membership of the single market.

The Irish border
A divided Ireland is being used by the EU to try and deny the British
people the clean Brexit they voted for.
Northern Ireland is an anachronism, a product of the long history of
British colonisation of that island, an anachronism with which we are
currently living and the Good Friday agreement provides the framework
for that.
Keeping an open border is necessary to honour the Good Friday
agreement and both main parties are committed to that. There are
advanced technologies that would allow that to happen which the EU
continue to refuse to contemplate in spite of the fact that their own
study of the issue comes to the same conclusion as those of the British
government. Even the Head of HMRC Jon Thompson explained this to
the Brexit Select Committee of the House of Commons.

NEW DEAL FOR BRITAIN
 
The spirit of 2017
 
New Deal
 
Our independence from the EU means our own renewed commitments to full employment, industrial redevelopment, nationalisation of rail and utilities, a resurgence of public services and a communal ethic in favour of the common good can be made more possible.
 
No neoliberal liked the referendum result, it has shaken their world.
 
 Leaving the EU provides a unique opportunity to end austerity, protect our agriculture and fishing industries, cut energy and house rents, rebuild social housing, invest in skills, science research and development.
 
 It should involve a return to publicly accountable schools, free higher education and the NHS outside of market forces.
 
The mood in Britain is to end austerity and rebuild and transform our politics and economy with the engagement and energy of all of our people.
 
The elite and the media continue to try to divide us between those who voted leave and those who voted remain
 
. As trade unionists we know that once a decision is taken we should unite to make democracy a success.
 
Those who try to block the referendum decision will be pushed aside, as will those who want to use it to create a bargain basement Britain.
