Major respect to Leanne Wood and Nicola Sturgeon for utterly smashing up Milliband and putting him on the ropes on his utter racist crap immigration and exposing he and labour are terrified of any real anti austerity alliance rather he wants to continue with the same private finance neo colonial bombing and genocidal killing culture of Labour governments.
Once again, anti-imperialist and anti-colonial politics are increasingly defining the political landscape in this country.
Things will get MUCH worse in England before they/we see things improve like with Plaid Cymru, SNP, Sinn Fein. The basis of any real pro-people change in England has been shown by historical Black and Asian radicalism in this island (although not recently for a few decades) more so in terms of the Global South liberation struggles that continue, by IRA and Sinn Fein, by SNP and Plaid and by the best militant anti-imperialist elements of the English working class movement such as the Miners / Scargill, RMT/Bob Crow etc. this debate reminded me again that it is the left pressure from Plaid and SNP which is the only route to pressurise any government in london.
I can never forget or forgive Labour for the rank, conceited and genocidal behaviour towards the majority of people in the world when they are running the British state.
Last night after the latest 'leaders debate' on bbc, I put up my status (above) which I shared on Leanne Wood's page. My analysis in my status was that basically the liberation of the English will come through learning and supporting the Globla SOuth historical and continued liberation struggles (ie., BRICS, ALBA, SCO, AU etc), IRA and Sinn Fein, SNP, Plaid and the best most militant traditions of the English working class struggle such as Miners/NUM and RMT/Bob Crow.
I thought I would share it on her page and picture to see what, if anything, people who support Plaid Cymru and Scottish National Party (SNP) would think.
Interestingly I have got over 100 'likes' so far, which again points towards the fact that radical anti-imperialist socialist-oriented analysis is relatively much more accepted in the milieus of the Scottish and Welsh Independence movements (and of course with the Irish Republican movements) than it is in the English left which is still overwhelmingly imbued with a deep colonial hostility and prejudice to any real meaningful change for those wanting to free themselves from neo-colonialism and for a people and environment-centred decolonial approach.
I am NOT saying there won't be plenty of contradictions and challenges between the those who are supportive of the Global anti-imperialist decolonial struggle and the independence movements of Ireland, Wales, Scotland (and Cornwall), but that these struggles are natural allies of ours and we should develop those bridges. Actually, Black and Asian communities in England who have little to no relative power vis a vis the system can also learn well from Sinn Fein, Plaid and the SNP of how to develop a radical political capacity against british neo-colonialism
