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.

EU Is still trying to rule Britain, Barnier tries demanding EU vessels have access to British waters otherwise there will be exclusion from EU markets; that there is a risk of a no deal. We must have sovereign rights over our fishing grounds.

EU fishing company bosses talk about winning a game with respect to Britain's fishing waters; but the struggle over fishing rights is serious. Ask Venezuelans if defence of sovereignty is a game, or Palestinians whether gaining it is mere play.

The EU has realised that Brexit is no game; it is the serious desire of the British population. Countries are panicking about the prospect of no-deal, as it will hurt economies in ways they refused to accept. Britain has the upper hand. Get Brexit done!

Pandemic planning in Britain is a Mess. Pandemic planning is split between the Joint Biosecurity Centre, the National Covid Response Centre and the Covid19 Taskforce.
Four separate IT systems are used (Synergy, CTAS, SGSS and HP Zone), meaning data is lost.
