We are deeply saddened to report the death of Sarah Ansell the Party’s publications and social media editor.

Our heartfelt condolences go to Bob, Sarah’s lifelong soul mate and comrade, and their children Rosie and Tom and all of their family and friends.

Sarah fought a long and uncomplaining battle against cancer for many years. She was selfless and thoughtful to the end, always worried she may be letting someone down, but never, ever doing so.

Sarah dedicated her life to the cause of others in her family, her union and her party; all of these commitments were part of the wider, deeper cause of the struggle for socialism and communism.

She entered every political debate and expressed her mind clearly and honestly, seeking always the firmest, most uniting and honest position for the situation in hand, and the overall benefit of our class.

She encouraged many other workers to write down their experiences and views in the clear English plain style that has its origins in the pamphlets of the Levellers and Diggers in the seventeenth century and the miners in their great dispute of 1984/85.

Her contribution to socialism in Britain was immense. It was always offered with modesty and an infectious smile. It will endure in the unions she gave so much to, NUT and PCS, Northamptonshire Trade Union Council and this party, which she played a key role in founding.

GMB express concern over jobs of 146,000 staff; as Walmart sell Asda to billionaire Issa brothers & a private equity company. Asda is priced at £6.8 billion, Walmart will still hold a minority stake; £4b is to be borrowed.

Liberals & many on the 'left' exaggerate differences between Trump & Biden; click to see what would make a real difference.
There is no effective “freedom” in a society in which working people live in poverty & billionaires live like parasites.

Biden opposed moves to rebuild Afghanistan, advising a policy of fighting terrorism in the country. He also opposed withdrawal of US troops, which Trump carried out.

@theworkerorguk Which international conflicts has biden spoken more violently than trump on? Evidence please.

Biden's regime will hold on to enclaves in the North East and work alongside Turkish invaders, continuing sanctions against the Syrian government. In general, Biden wants US global leadership, which he sees as being diminished by Trump's inconsistencies.

Biden intends to have tighter sanctions on DPRK, and to have stricter preconditions with respect to engaging on talks. The Democrat's president also intends to strengthen an alliance against North Korea. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-biden-northkorea-analysi/biden-on-north-korea-fewer-summits-tighter-sanctions-same-standoff-idUSKBN25G2QO
