    Why you should join the AWL

    In Britain today, one child in three grows up in poverty, in a household with less than half the average income. In 1968, the figure was only one in 10.

    Thousands are homeless on the streets, while 600,000 dwellings stand empty. Millions are jobless, while those with jobs have to work longer and longer hours.

    Health care, state education, and public services are ruined by cuts and privatisation, while the wealth of the rich snowballs.

    Workplace stress escalates, under new technologies which, rationally used, should ease it.

    you say :

    "In Britain today, one child in three grows up in poverty, in a household with less than half the average income. In 1968, the figure was only one in 10. "

    you want and have a labour government, and so this is what you get.
    Bit of a nerve to complain - what about us real workers that are paying all the taxes and getting nothing in return. The NHS is worse than ever and there are new taxes every day to support the labour administration. Why do we have a government that lies and has 'spin doctors' - because of stupido labout voters. No wonder Tony Blair is laughing.

    you'll find that most people who used to support the labour party and believe in socialism no longer do since blair won the leadership.

    mainly because they're not a workers' party anymore - they had to sell out to the bourgeois vote to get elected.

    and yes, it frustrates me that whenever see our taxes go anywhere. it frustrates me that they spent an unimaginable amount of m0ney on that fucking dome when the nhs is falling apart and they even LOST money selling the damn thing!

    but yeah i could rant for ages - point is labour dont have anything to do with socialism anymore, or principles for that matter...

    It's a classic. I can't think of any other book like it. Necessary Marxist reading. RIP, comrade.

    Changing the culture of the left

    Submitted by SJW on 9 May, 2018 - 1:55 Author: Sean Matgamna

    Now Kumar deigns to argue rather than hurling stale abuse (Solidarity 465: Discussion is good.

    The atmosphere on the ostensible left is heavily charged with heresy-hunting, trolling (which is only another name for gang mobbing and bulling), shouting-down, and drowning-out. There is little or no real political debate or dialogue.

    That is what the internal life of the pseudo-Leninist sects has been for decades (the SWP, for instance, or, worse, the SP). It has now become the culture of Momentum.

    A response to critics

    Submitted by SJW on 9 May, 2018 - 1:52 Author: Ashok Kumar

    In response to your reply to my Sky News appearance I had immediately said that I did not seek to send a response of my own. In answer to this you wrote a short text saying that I had failed to deal with the substance of your issue. Now I feel I should reply to answer your political questions.

    First of the questions posed is: is the AWL racist? To which one might reply: what would a left-wing racism even look like? In the week in which we mark fifty years since Enoch Powell’s ‘Rivers of Blood speech’ the AWL’s response on this question is an important one.
