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.

In dealing with Covid19, Collectivism and Science have shown the way world wide; in Britain it's been Trade Unions and the NHS. Capitalism has shown itself unwilling & incapable of dealing with this crisis.

Neo-liberal managerial approach, from a neo-liberal political party. More evidence for ending the illusion that the Labour Party can ever be socialist which is based on a deeper illusion that the Parliamentary system and existing state can be reformed in the interests of workers.

The British Labour Party ending its own furlough scheme a month before the national scheme, and letting employees go, in the midst of a global pandemic and on the cusp of an economic depression - under new management indeed:

In the USA we see a contradiction between aspects of neoliberalism; i.e. between authoritarianism of the state repressive apparatus and liberal economics of cuts in public services. Both aspects end up damaging workers.

HUGE federal overreach here. https://twitter.com/kylehooten2/status/1308051304846065666
