Bill Ash – A Great Communist, Writer and War Hero

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of Comrade Bill Ash, aged 96.

He had an early life full of incident and adventure, including his many escape attempts from the Nazis from Stalag Luft 3. After the war he joined the BBC.

From the 50s he became a Marxist, was a co-founder of the Communist Party of Britain (Marxist-Leninist) along with Reg Birch in the late 60s and was editor of the party paper in the 70s.

He wrote novels as well as works of non-fiction, such as ‘Marxist Morality’ and was chair of the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain for many years.

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
