Labour International, the international section of the British Labour party, has relaunched its website and is leading with an editorial I wrote about what’s at stake in the upcoming European elections:
It is important for the future of Britain that the largest party in this election should be a pro-European one: Labour. The alternative — a UKIP victory — would be a huge boost to those who want to break up the European Union, turning back the clocks on more than half a century of peace, stability and cooperation among our group of highly inter-dependent neighbouring countries. For Britain, walking out and slamming the door on all our neighbours, who are also our main export market, would risk economic disaster. It is up to us to re-double our efforts to avoid such a catastrophe.
