Get ready for Xmas

Here are two suggestions for those of you who like getting organised for December 25th!

Voice and Vision – songs of resistance, democracy, and peace.

This is a double CD set produced by Topic records and the General Federation of Trade Unions. Some of the best songs from our working class history sung by some of the most famous singers and many new voices of younger performers. There are excellent sleeve notes putting the songs in a social and political context and emphasising their power and significance today. Order through Topic Records the oldest independent record label in the world originally established by the Communist Party.

33 revolutions per minute – a History of Protest Songs. Faber and Faber publishers.

This is a magnificent book by Dorian Lynskey bringing out the resonance, historic moment and ‘biographies’ of world changing songs and their singers.

Someone once said if you wanted to know the real history of Britain and the United States you would look at our songs. This book and the two CDs mentioned are indispensable in understanding our history.

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
