I fully agree with John!

The British national state as well as the EU proto-state formation are 
BOTH instruments for the imperialist ruling class (or different factions 
of the ruling class) in order to impose their interests on the working 
class. To side with one against the other is the same reactionary 
nonsense as siding in
imperialist countries between Globalization vs Protectionism (or, to 
give another analogy, between the Republicans vs the Democrats in the U.S.).

Engels quote is absolutely correct. It seems that, according to John, 
not only Marx and Engels but also Hilferding and Lenin (who repeated 
Engels statement quoted by John) didn't "understand" the nature of 
imperialist protectionism! Bold statement!

No, John, austerity against workers takes place inside the European 
Union AS WELL AS outside of it.

As this is a decade-long debate (most of the British left - from the 
Stalinists to most "Trotskyists" - adapts to British chauvinism and 
supports Brexit) there exists a vast literature on this issue.

Here are two pamphlets which deal in detail with the British left and 
their position on Brexit.
