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.

Azov battalion surrender at the Azovstal steelworks; a symbolic defeat for Ukraine. US, UK & some EU governments still want to fight the war to the last Ukrainian; they continue warmongering and sending weaponry to Ukraine.

#Russia says it has no problem with #Sweden or #Finland, hence no problem with it joining #NATO. It will however monitor its deployment of troops and weaponry, and take action appropriate to the threats.
As in Britain it's up to the people to say #No2NATO.

In a statement to MPs in late April Ben Wallace Secretary of State for Defence said "gifts of weapons by Britain could eventually total £500m" to Ukraine, as he gloried in the reported of the deaths of 15,000 Russian soldiers. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/apr/25/uk-military-aid-to-ukraine-could-rise-to-500m-mps-told#:~:text=In%20a%20statement%20to%20MPs%2C%20Ben%20Wallace%20said%20gifts%20of%20weapons%20by%20Britain%20could%20eventually%20total%20%C2%A3500m%2C%20and%20he%20said%2015%2C000%20Russian%20soldiers%20had%20died%20since%20the%20invasion%20began%20on%2024%20February.&text=%E2%80%9CWe%20have%20gifted%20in%20aid%20%C2%A3200m%20which%20we%20propose%20will%20grow%20to%20%C2%A3500m%20to%20Ukraine%2C%E2%80%9D%20Wallace%20told%20the%20House%20of%20Commons.
