Subject: RE: BS: To Br/Exit Or Not To Br/Exit
Quite the political thread you folks have here. I would just like to point out, from across the pond in Toronto, that not all the YES campaigners are teh right-wing Little England types. The leadership of the RMT union is the only labour leadership campaigning for the Yes, but there are surely a large minority of good trades unionists in the other organisations who are against it as well, on the grounds that Brothers Steve Hedley and Alex Gordon keep trying to push ... the EU is not a Europe for the workers and the peoples of Europe, it is a Europe for the bankers. It is a Europe which makes it virtually impossible for workers from other countries in the EU working in the UK to be paid at the same rate as British workers; how is that immigrant-friendly?

If it were possible to reform the EU so that the people who control it were democratically elected, that would be another question. But the Troika are not elected by any of the populations of Europe.
