I ain't really said much on the EUREF, but I feel this needs to be said.
We are not controlled by Brussels, Britain is controlled by a class of people, this class of people are called the "ruling class." If we stay in the EU or leave the EU, the same ruling class which control us now, will still be in charge.
You will not have more power if we vote to leave, you will not have less, you will have the same amount of power that you have now, which is none.
Inequality, and the structures of power and wealth will be maintained regardless of whether we are in or out come the EUREF, because the EUREF does not challenge the power structures, it does not challenge the inequality of the system.
I don't care how you vote, but if you're voting with the thought that voting in or out, is going to impact on these things in anyway shape or form, sorry to break it to you but you're wrong.
The wealthy elite in the City of London, will continue to be the wealthy elite long after the EUREF, the greedy bankers who have million pound bonuses, after the EUREF, will still be the same greedy bankers which plunged the world into recession in 2008. The corrupt politicians which take cash for questions, will still be there. Knighthoods and peerages will still be dolled out to the rich because of political donations, and political corruption. The rich multinationals, and the rich business owners, will still be the same ones we have now, and they will continue to get better treatment, and live better lives because of their wealth.
This will not change whatever the result of the EUREF, because the EUREF does not seek to challenge the structures and systems which keep us poor, and impact heavily on inequality, and the halls of power.
If you want to challenge these things, then after the referendum whatever the result, organise - join a trade union. Get involved in local activism, get involved in having a political voice, do something positive. Rally against the inequality within the system, educate yourself and others about the ruling elite and how they keep themselves in power.
These things can be changed, and they have to be challenged, but in or out come the referendum, it will not impact on the ruling class in any meaningful way. So I hope that after this vote, a lot of you take this passion and start using it in a productive way, tackling the problems we face, and trying to change the oppressive structures which keep us in our place.
