THE struggle for a “left Brexit” and fight for a socialist Labour government go hand in hand, civil servants heard at a Morning Star supporters fringe meeting on Tuesday night.
Pierre Marshall led the PCS conference fringe Embrace Brexit and Shape the Future.
Attendees welcomed decisions taken by conference that day, pointing out that statements on public ownership in shadow chancellor John McDonnell’s conference address were incompatible with single market membership.
The need to develop a “positive campaign” for workers and immigrants’ rights was discussed, as was the need to fight for investment in jobs and skills, as well as reshape industrial laws in favour of unions.
Participants also spoke of the need to emphasise to younger people the problems inherent in electing a socialist Labour government bound by the European Union’s structures, saying that this fight will go “hand in glove” with the fight to make Jeremy Corbyn prime minister.
