The thee-million-jobs-at risk lie

Supporters of greater EU integration, such as the deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, have claimed repeatedly -- on the basis of a 1999 report from the National Institute of Economic and Social Research - that at least three million jobs would be at risk if the UK withdrew from the EU. (The Institute's director, Martin Weale, repudiated that claim and described it a 'pure Goebbels'.) The claim rests on a misunderstanding. Three million British people are involved in exporting products to the EU, but their jobs depend on the continuation of trade, not on continued EU membership. Outside the EU Britain -- like any other services to EU member states. Millions of jobs in China 'depend on exports to the EU', but no one has suggested that China must become an EU member. The three-million-jobs-at-risk lie is 'Euro-centrism gone mad'.

The mad European Single Market and privatisation

The EU-India Free Trade Agreement will extend the European Single Market which the European Court of Justice is trying to keep secret the deals from those who oppose the FTA but not from business and the transnationals

Also see what we said in 2011 - Stop the EU-India Free Trade Agreement- also know as Mode 4

CAEF - Press Statement - 14 May 2013

The time is ripe where the Left must regroup around the demand to leave the EU. RMT General Secretary Bob Crow has spelt out what must be done where RMT leads the way*. It is time for the left to get everybody in the labour movement off their knees and get the anti-EU position adopted in as many units of the movement as practical. This is an opportune time to muck out the stables, put an end to the austerity policies which emanate from Brussels and demand an in/out referendum on EU membership now.

CAEF - Press Statement - 3 May 2013

Local election results are a
danger signal

For years the electorate has overwhelmingly opposed Britain's EU membership. The local election results are a clear danger signal. Unless the labour and trade union movement recognise this and return to an anti-EU position the far right will take hold with dreadful consequences. The anti-EU movement must not be confused with right wing political parties who support austerity. The left must take hold of the leadership of this movement and take Britain to a position outside the EU. Britain must have the right to self determination with a government replacing austerity and instead adopt policies and pass legislation for jobs and a manufacturing based economy to create wealth and trade across the world.
