:The European Union. the corrupt and vicious neo-liberal Austerity Weapon of the financial / political elite — has been defeated in the UK — the first step towards its inevitable dissolution.
And yet the metropolitan so-called ”left” is furious. How dare the ”have-nots” put the house prices, foreign holidays and cheap au-pairs of the ”haves” at risk ?
Overwhelmingly it was the poor and powerless who made this historic step by rebelling in the only way they saw possible – NOT voting the way their privileged masters demanded. To quote Jeremy Corbyn today : ”Millions of voters have rejected a political establishment that has left them behind. Communities that have been hardest hit by government cuts and economic failure have voted against the status quo.” .
This result represents a war cry from the masses — a plague on all elites, left or right.
Well, it’s a start…..
What is needed now is a focused escalation to make the ruling class tremble. Not to allow racists and fascists to exploit this result, but to take, and keep, the political initiative.

In any case, whatever your views on the referendum, the resignation of Posh-boy Pig-fucker is surely reason enough to celebrate !
