The points made by Elaine Jones and Ian Scott (M Star Sept 26) on internationalism and the EU are perhaps not so far apart as one might suppose.
Let's remember that the EU is not imposing austerity on hapless Greeks.
The EU, European Central Bank and IMF are insisting on neoliberal conditions for loans requested by neoliberal Greek politicians (and their supposedly socialist allies).
The Greek people rejected these conditions in the recent election but, so far, their voice has not been respected by their own government or other governments.
Should therefore the Greek people "get out of" Greece, or the EU or the IMF? Of course not!
They, along with the socialist and popular movements in other countries, must rally to oppose such neoliberal policies and propose practical alternatives.
Likewise, closer to home, would it make sense for the Scots to get out of the UK, the EU and the IMF?
Can we not ask the same question of the British, Germans and Italians who all live in patchwork states (assembled from a number of nationalities)?
The answer of course could be yes - but only if the politics is transformed radically in the resulting secessionist state. And if that was the case then the struggle has already been (at least partially) successful.
I am with Elaine Jones on this. Fight the fight - the real one.
