Brexit (full document, including appendices not for voting, which aren't in DB 333) martin Tue, 10/10/2017 - 21:34

In the context of a surge in the fortunes of right-wing and nationalist political parties and movements worldwide, including in France and Germany, the European Union’s ‘twin engine’, it is more important than ever that we promote the internationalist perspectives of the Marxist movement, and assert that the workers have no country.

In the UK, the seeming demise of UKIP masks the fact that the Conservative Party has embraced much of their core values and political agenda.
