On a radical vision for Brexit – interview with the New Statesman

Summary:
I warned Jeremy Corbyn about Brexit – now Labour must regain its radicalism Yanis Varoufakis on a radical vision for Brexit. 1st September 2017 (Click here for the original NS site) From the beginning of my conversations on Brexit with the Labour leadership, I advocated a “radical Remain” stance: the UK should be for the EU, but not this EU. The labour movement in Britain and elsewhere has been critical of the operations of the state at the national level without calling for its disbandment. Similarly, we can be critical of the EU without seeking to leave it. We can expose the failings of its institutions and be fierce opponents of its neoliberal economic doctrine without wishing for the break-up of the bloc.
