  • 1945 and its aftermath – an eyewitness remembers

    Communist Party veteran DAVID GROVE remembers celebrating victory over fascism 75 years ago, and asks why the bright promise of 1945 went unfulfilled.

    OR anyone, like me, born in the 1920s, the year 1945 was, politically, the most exciting of our lives. And it was probably the most critical year in human history.

    Worldwide there was victory over fascism, and in Britain Labour won the general election with a big majority on a radical manifesto.

  • Long live International Workers Day!

    On this International Workers’ Day, the coronavirus crisis has demonstrated, in stark and dramatic ways, that it is the labour power of the working class – whether by hand or brain – which makes our society function.

    We could manage without the bankers, the speculators, the property tycoons, the wealthy shareholders – but our society would collapse in one week without the workers who provide our essential industries and services. Capitalism’s bankers and financiers and billionaires like Richard Branson have their begging bowls out for public money when their system is in crisis – yet they take evey opportunity to live as tax exiles overseas to avoid paying tax.


  • “Urgent need for a stronger Communist party”

    ‘Yet, at this very time, the pro-capitalist forces in the Labour Party are triumphant behind new leader Keir Starmer, determined to push the party back to the mushy middle-ground and marginalise the left’, he warned.

    Mr Johnson said the recent internal report on anti-Semitism in the Labour Party recounted a ‘horror story’ of abuse, sabotage and betrayal of the party and its former leader Jeremy Corbyn and his team’.


  • COVID crisis and Labour's right-turn show urgent need for stronger Communist Party

    'The coronavirus exposes the fundamentally anti-social nature of capitalism with its corporate greed and market anarchy', Steve Johnson told the Communist Party's political committee online on Wednesday evening April 22). 'Yet, at this very time, the pro-capitalist forces in the Labour Party are triumphant behind new leader Keir Starmer, determined to push the party back to the mushy middle-ground and marginalise the left', he warned. Mr Johnson said the recent internal report on anti-Semitism in the Labour Party recounted a 'horror story' of abuse, sabotage and betrayal of the party and its former leader Jeremy Corbyn and his team'. 'Staff misconduct would normally be a purely internal matter', Mr Johnson remarked, 'but this was on a scale which - together with Starmer's disastrous anti-Brexit policy - fatally undermined Labour's General Election chances last December, robbing the people of Britain of a government whose values and priorities would have been fundamentally different in the current COVID-19 crisis'.


  • Lenin

    From its formation 100 years ago, the Communist Party in Britain has based itself on the principles of Marx, Engels and Lenin. In particular, Lenin's teachings on the state, revolution, imperialism, the national question, the party and working class power have enriched Marxism and informed, educated and inspired many millions of Communists across the globe. Today, the principles of Marxism-Leninism remain the basis of our revolutionary programme Britain's Road to Socialism. The best way to honour the memory of Lenin is to join and help strengthen the Communist Party of Britain as a proud and integral contingent of the international Communist movement.
