‘This is the system that has robbed us of
our pensions, our savings, our jobs, our pay
and conditions, our sovereignty and in many
cases our homes…’
Let them leave
Brown and Darling call in vain on
bankers not to take their bonuses, talk
of a tax on transactions, talk of breaking
up banks into proper banks and
casino banks but say they can do nothing
without international agreement.
Why? Because if we’re beastly to the
bankers in Britain, they will leave.
So what? Do we want British workers to continue to be the cannon
fodder for finance capitalism? This is the system that has
robbed us of our pensions, our savings, our jobs, our pay and conditions,
our sovereignty and in many cases our homes.
The answer has to be NO. A government that speaks for Britain
would end the nation’s dependence on finance capitalism by taking
unilateral national action against it. Outlaw casino banking and let
them go to the US if they whinge. Make them repay our money
first, whether by tax, sequestration or nationalisation. Create a
banking system as a public service instead of a milk cow for finance
capital. Re-mutualise those banks that were building societies. Tell
the banks to invest in manufacturing and create a new industrial
For sure, a government that speaks for Britain would not be a
Labour or a Tory one. There has never been a time when the case
for workers taking matters into their own hands, taking control, has
been so obvious.
Who else is going to do it?
