Leaving the EU – Statement 26th November 2018

There is nothing more precious and necessary for social progress and democracy than national self-determination.

The British people must be able to govern themselves: this means our industrial and agricultural production, territorial waters and borders, fiscal and investment strategies, labour and capital flows, public services, utilities and trade must be under the control of our own elected government.

National independence is impossible inside the European Union, so too is the rebuilding of a productive, full employment based economy and the care and welfare of our citizens.   Read full statement

Workers’ Party of Britain Statement for Milan Conference

On the occasion of celebrating 200 years since the birth of Karl Marx, 100 years since the end of the First World War and 101 years since the Bolshevik Revolution, the Workers Party of Britain has produced the following statement for consideration. It was presented to a meeting of sister parties on November 11th 2018 in Italy.

Communists stand for world peace

A generation is 25 years. There have been 8 generations since the birth of Marx and 4 since 1917. Socialism is therefore very young in world history. It, alongside the development of productive forces, has shaped the modern world. Yet socialist ideas are also ancient and exist in all previous societies. Marx sought to complete the thought of the past by revealing the inadequacies of earlier theories and the strengths of the most penetrating ideas to replace capitalism.

Britain and the World

Socialism is a recent, infant development in the whole, long history of the human species, yet its seeds and embryos have grown within each previous social formation worldwide.

Its essence in collective labour, sharing, solidarity, mutual support and human empathy has been evident in every human society. What has been unnatural and inhuman has been the theft of the collective production of people and the private ownership of land.

This has occurred in relatively recent, class divided history since the first City states in Mesopotamia 5,000 years ago. It was this division into various forms of haves and have nots over the centuries that gave rise to new ideas of socialism which aspire to and predict a future without class division, the oppression of women, or ethnic groups.

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.
