Thread Name: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
The EU is an organisation of States working under an unequal and gradually failing system, as all countries are
In the opinion of some Labour members, that is not worth supporting, others believe that it is the best on offer at the present time
Given the rise of extremist right wing extremism/violence, I would tend to go along with the latter - for now
The fact that that extremism has been encouraged and even fostered by Brexit, only adds to my qualified support
It needs to be remembered that not all Labour Party members are socialists - yet

The influence of that Extremism has now been spotted in Ireland in the shape of right-wing outside groups honing in and taking advantage of recent (unfortunately successful) protests opposing the opening of Oughterard in County Galway - dangerous and sad at the same time
