The entire case which Petainist #LabourIn et al so condescendingly place before the British electorate on whether to continue our national subjugation to the shibboleth of the EU, rests on what they call the economic facts. Everyone from the IMF and OECD downwards in the pecking order of Socio-economic/Financial Nomenklatura so beloved and endlessly referenced by the corporate Commentariat come back to what they continually restate are the economic arguments/ evidence for voting ” Remain ” on June 23. And ” facts ” are only accorded such a privileged status on the presumption that said ” facts ” accord with the ideological predisposition of those interested parties/factions who wish to make use of them to their own advantage in the battle of ideas. The only caveat to all of this interminable squabbling is that not all facts are equal and that in effect some facts are clearly more equal than others. Fact, to discuss/debate the current and future state of the national economy in isolation from the issue of immigration is a mark of self-delusional denial,since State-support for the ideological concept of freedom of movement of labour is predicated on economic necessity as defined and wholly determined by the needs and requirements of global monopoly capitalism.The historic virtual absence of empirically verifiable, and transparently accountable and rigourously regulated levels of extra-territorial labour unit inputs to localised,national economic requirements are the bane of British public political discourse. An equivalent idiocy applied, say in the running and operation of a power station for example would allow for an unregulated supply of coal trucks turning up at the main gate every day,which they were accorded the freedom to do, in the hope that it was their individual load that could be made use of on that day. Regulating the supply of coal in that scenario,would,using the logic of the Labour Party be racist or xenophobic if say the coal trucks came from somewhere other than the immediate geographic locality. Alas Labour does apply such non-sequiturs to the migration of millions of ” citizens ” of the EU who otherwise would be jobless in their own nation states and who are made ” free ” to act as individualised agents of the market economy and fulfill the Capitalist requirement of providing additonal labour competitively against all other locally available labour.
Though the facts really are against the viability of such dogmatic class collaborationist economics.Immigration is only permitted because of its deleterious economic effect on the wages and living standards of the locally organised and efficient class conscious organised workers.
Not that Labour cares…The Office of National Statistics finds that ”
In 2012 for instance, more than four years after the start of the recession,
productivity remains 3.7 per cent below its pre-recession peak. ” This after all the tremendously invaluable contribution of inner-EU territorial migration of structurally surplus labour units.
Asked about those within Labour who worry about immigration undermining social cohesion, Corbyn said: “You have to ensure that communities are brought together, that people do understand the changes that are happening and actually see some plus and some benefit within it.
“You look at various towns where there’s been a big change, quite often the economy has actually begun to grow after that level of migration, there’s been actually very good levels of community understanding and integration.”
He said there needed to be greater investment in housing, schools and hospitals by central government to accommodate immigration.
“Migration actually is a plus to our economy as a whole..” he adds as a non-sequitur.
Official Data from ONS ( Office of National Statstics ) shows that ” A feature of the UK’s recovery since 2013 has been that unemployment has fallen faster than in previous recession – this is due to several factors, such as – more flexible labour markets, low wage growth and low labour productivity.”. ONS research and analysis shows that real household incomes per head have been stagnant since 2007.
In 2012 for instance the ONS found that :-.Morre than four years after the start of the recession,
productivity remains 3.7 per cent below its pre-recession peak. At the corresponding stage of the
recessions in the early 1980s and 1990s, productivity was more than 10 per cent higher than at the
start of the recession. The current level of productivity, measured as output per worker, is around 15
per cent lower than might be expected on the basis of previous experience.
Or as that practitioner of the zenith of mongoloid reasoning would have it:-
You have to ensure that communities are brought together, that people do understand the changes that are happening and actually see some plus and some benefit within it.
The habitual,breathtaking pseudo-intellectual arrogance of the ” left “-liberal metropolitan domiciled elites at its quintessentially specious and rabidly anti-Working Class,anti-99%.
