The “left” anti-EU quagmire

Above “left” and right anti-EU campaigns: spot the difference

“Following the accession of eastern European states to the EU, migrant labour has been rapidly moving west while capital and manufacturing jobs are moving east.

“While western European countries have been experiencing a large influx of migrant labour, eastern European states are suffering population falls and an inevitable brain drain, leading to a loss of skilled labour and young people as well as an uncertain future of that classic imperialist outcome — underdevelopment.

“In more developed member states, wages have been under pressure in a process known as “social dumping,” as cheap foreign labour replaces the indigenous workforce and trade union bargaining power is severely weakened” – Brian Denny (of various “left” anti-EU campaigns) in today’s Morning Star

“A large influx of migrant labour” … “social dumping” (a great euphemism, that) … “cheap foreign labour replaces the indigenous workforce…”: and the likes of Denny tell us their campaign is not xenophobic and little-Englandish

Denny’s thoroughly reactionary article is entitled “Get out of this quagmire”: the left needs to get out of  Denny’s filthy borderline-racist quagmire – backed by the Morning Star and the Communist Party – once and for all.

    To be fair to Danny he doesn’t actually uses the term “social dumping” as he put’s inverted commas around the phrase. Other than that it is a very silly article as inside or outside of the EU nothing can stop people migrating to the UK. But, in the longterm wages will continue to rise, faster than the cost of living, regarding of migration.
    I don’t know the background of Danny, but, presumably he was or would have been in favour of COMECON and migration (if it was allowed) between the states in that economic bloc?

    Though I’ve just seen the front pave of today’s Star.
    It might undermine any accusations of them being little-Englanders.

      The M Star takes a generally decent line on migrants and asylum seekers – but that’s contradicted and undermined by the hysterically nationalist anti-EU line imposed by the likes of Denny and John Boyd.
