Corrupt British state under double attack

THE CORRUPT British state is coming under attack at home and abroad this week.

The day before two million workers were due to take a day of strike action in the UK, an angry crowd of students stormed the British embassy in Tehran (see video).

This follows new sanctions imposed by London, based on the unverified claim that Iran is developing nuclear weapons already possessed by the UK, USA, France and Israel.

Although thousands of miles apart, the two protests are deeply related.

The truth is that the British state, like the US and other states, does not exist to further the interests of its own citizens, let alone absurd notions of global  'democracy'.

Instead, it is controlled entirely by a ruthless neoliberal mafia and used to promote and defend the commercial domination of corporate interests and the capitalist system that enables them to flourish.

Rebellious worker-drones at home and dangerously independent countries abroad are all threats to that hegemony and have to be crushed.

But there are now definite signs that this is not going to be as easy as it once was.
