As Thierry, an activist in the independent SUD trade union, told Socialist
Worker on Saturday, the strength of the campaign comes from its link with the
movement against privatisation and other attacks — “If the no campaign is
victorious it will put the idea in people’s heads that the neo-liberal machine
can be stopped.”...
Nothing could sum up, better than this, the other-worldliness of the lumpen intelligentsia that makes up the new left. A 'NON' vote may put the idea in people's heads that the neo-liberal machine can be stopped, but in reality, a rejection of a common European stand in defence of history's most successful and progressive social model (the one found throughout most of the EU currently) may prove to be one of the most serious mistakes.
As exhaustively demonstrated by Phil Edwards excellent round-up.
