As Scotland votes: Kick the ‘Effing Tories’

Issue No. 2421

The Yes campaign in Scotland, which concludes this week, has had David Cameron on the run.

His panic reminded us of the fear that grips our rulers when ordinary people get a sense of their power.

The Tory toff was even forced to admit that many people in Scotland are sick of the “effing Tories”.

But hatred of Cameron and his party doesn’t stop at the border.

Working class people across Britain want the Tories out. They are furious at a party that claims we are in “recovery” yet keeps on making savage cuts.

But anger alone won’t get rid of this government. So workers ­everywhere must do all they can to deepen its crisis.

That means fighting to make the planned strikes in October as big and militant as possible.

It means making sure the TUC demonstrations planned for the same month are massive.

And, it means supporting ­campaigns against cuts and attacks on benefit claimants and migrants.

Then there might be a chance that, north and south, we can all tell Cameron to “eff off”!
