The election result showed that reports of gross Brexit frustration in the UK were chimeras

"British electoral will triumphs over paternalism by European media and politicians." This is how the AfD commented on the election results in Great Britain. Sometimes you can’t afford your own eulogists either. But the election winners in Great Britain have earned the AfD praise. For the Tories under Johnson have moved so far to the right that the Brexit party declared itself superfluous even before the elections and called for the election of the Conservatives in order to complete the Brexit.

In Great Britain, therefore, the scenario that the right wing of the Union is striving for in Germany in the foreseeable future had come to pass by the time of the elections. But in this country, there is still a lack of a federating slogan to prepare for this kind of civic coalition. The AfD, however, prepared for exactly this in its rough majority at the last party congress. The Brexit was the opportunity for relevant parts of the Conservatives in Great Britain to turn to the right. There, the Conservatives played the usual role of going with the ultra-right against the left in case of doubt.

There stands a Boris Johnson in preserved party tradition. After all, in the 1930s leading conservatives in Great Britain had also sympathized with the National Socialists. With the communism one had a common enemy. After 1936, the Conservative-led British government played a major role in ensuring that the Spanish Republic succumbed to the attacks of Franco’s fascists and their allies from Mussolini Italy and Nazi Germany by ensuring that little military support entered the country.

Margreth Thatcher, the saint of all market radicals, was a close friend of the Chilean military fascist Pinochet until the end. During one of his friendly visits to London, he was arrested because an international arrest warrant was available. Like Pinochet, Thatcher bloodily suppressed the workers’ movement during the miners’ strike. But unlike the Chilean caudillo, she still had to adhere to certain forms. Johnson, too, was well received by large sections of British capital with his right-wing course.

Much ado about the Brexit

Even the capital factions that warned for months about Brexit and painted the consequences for the British economy in gloomy colors are now quite happy about the election outcome. Because the Brexit debate was largely theater thunder. Capital has long since come to terms with it and is painting a rosy picture of the future as a tax haven off the European mainland.

None of this is good news for wage earners, and yet a large number of them have allowed themselves to be drawn into the bourgeois circus over the Brexit ie. While the social democratic Labour opposition focused on social ies, propagating demands for higher wages and more money for the health system and education, the fuss about Brexit ensured that such ies of real improvement in the living conditions of many people were not heard in these elections.

The winner is the ruling bloc, no matter how it had stood on Brexit in recent years. Because for them, this was not a war of faith. For they had the certainty that whether in or outside the EU, Great Britain would remain capitalist. Even a Corbyn government did not change that. But today an original social democratic policy for the capital side is almost as bad as communism. In Berlin, timid reforms in favor of tenants, such as the rent cap, are demonized as the return of the GDR. A Corbyn government then seemed almost a revolution.

Capital, after its many victories in the international class struggle, is now so accustomed that it fights reforms that mean improvements for wage earners as if revolution were actually on the agenda. But this also means that without the beginnings of a revolutionary theory and practice, even a reformist policy in the best sense is not possible. The failure of Corbyn in the British elections showed this clearly.
