In what seems like the everlasting ideological war for control of the Labour Party, three groups and their respective members are to be removed from Labour … The accumulation of these suspended groups totals to about 1,000 members. Losing this many members cannot be good for a party which has already seen a massive decline in membership since Starmer’s took over as leader of the party. The ideological war of the Labour Party has been going since nearly it’s inception in 1900.
llowing a bitterly fought campaign, Labour managed to hold onto Batley & Spen by just 323 votes. Labour’s Kim Leadbetter won 13,296 votes, while the Tories won 12,973.
Starmer and his advisers are eager to address the working class as a ‘patriotic’ identity, rather than an economic group that will support progressive policies proposed by people like themselves writes Nick Wright.
George Galloway has announced his intention to stand in the forthcoming Batley and Spen by-election as a candidate for the Workers’ Party of Britain.
Daniel Roantree argues that the Labour Party’s recent loss in England hurts everyone on Britain’s road to socialism.
The Communist Party has urged the labour movement not to listen to “the false prophets of the right” in response to the 6 May election results. “The likes of Lords Mandelson and Adonis only have one overriding aim – to defend the power and wealth of monopoly capitalism”, CP General Secretary Robert Griffiths told the party’s Political Committee on Sunday evening (9 May 2021).
This week in Parliament, Boris Johnson published the Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy, described widely as the largest review of its kind since the end of the Cold War. Its publication comes after a string of related announcements, and an inflated defence budget last year.
Nuclear weapons are unpopular across the political spectrum, especially in the party Starmer now leads. So why, asks Nick Wright, are these vote-seeking ‘pragmatists’ so hell-bent on keeping them?
Communist Party candidates in Scotland launched their campaigns this week ahead of the Scottish Parliamentary elections this May. The Communist Party is putting up candidates, not just in Scotland, but across Wales, many of the English regions, and London. Each and every one of these candidates offers hope in a political landscape that has been ravaged by neoliberal politics for over a decade at least.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined the “roadmap” out of lockdown for England on Monday (22 February 2021), with an idea of when pubs, cinemas, sporting events and non essential shops would be opened. However many are concerned at the opening of schools as early as the 8th of March. Johnson put forward his 4 step plan for England to the House of Commons, with the first step being schools opening early next month.
