Australia's Slow Motion Crisis from Jacobin by Tad Tietze "The most important driver of volatility is the hollowing out of the social base of the political system, and the growing detachment of the political class from the voting public. It’s a process that has been described in many countries, perhaps in most detail by the late Peter Mair in Ruling The Void, which mainly focuses on Western Europe."
Guardian's terrble dilemna over Corbyn from Jonathan Cook "Corbyn’s victory represented a huge failure not just for the political class in all its narrow neoliberal variations, but also for the media class in all its narrow neoliberal variations. It was a sign that the Guardian’s credibility with its own readers is steadily waning. "
Jeremy Corbyn predicted that Euro would lead to 'the imposition of Banker's Europe' But "Today, after striking a moderately eurosceptic position during his leadership campaign, Mr Corbyn has now categorically said Labour would not campaign for EU exit.
He says he wants Britain to work for a "social Europe, a cohesive Europe, a coherent Europe, not a free market Europe".He made the about-face after coming under pressure from Labour MPs, including former shadow business secretary Chuka Umunna and shadow foreign secretary Hilary Benn."
