UK. No I don’t mean our comrades from Stoke Newington in the 1970’s but the relatives and friends of the 50,000 who have died from Covid-19 and often due directly to cackhanded and woeful government policies.Continue reading Class War Daily 22 May 2020: What is to be done?
UK. It is only now that we are against the Tories and that you see that we could have mobilised unions to protect their staff much earlier – on the buses as well as the trains.Continue reading Class War Daily 20 May 2020: Where have all the lefties gone – Bob Crow: The left’s lost leader fondly remembered at Tolpuddle
The UK is rife with leeches who suck the blood, sweat and tears out of the working class. 147 of them are Billionaires and they sit on £490.687,000,000. To put that in perspective it’s estimated that it would take £5.7 Billion in the first year
to end world hunger with that number radically dropping each year after that, ending poverty the world over? An initial investment of just £218 billion. Thinking closure to home? It would cost just £70 billion to safeguard the working class and maintain financially supported furlough until October.
UK. The Tory government seems obsessed with getting kids back to school for a few weeks when we all know that this will spread the virus and threaten our loved ones. They are pressing for schools to open on June 1st. Today it is quickly

The boss’s profits rely on the rest of us working and the last 7 weeks have made them all get very jittery. How few of them have slashed their own wages while making people redundant? How many of them have suffered
lockdown in the big houses and gardens?

A word to the 35,000 now tramping the streets of this great city, with hands in pockets, gazing listlessly about you at the evidence of wealth and pleasure of which you own no part, not sufficient even to purchase yourself a bit of food with which to appease the pangs of hunger
now knawing at your vitals. It is with you and the hundreds of thousands of others similarly situated in this great land of plenty, that I wish to have a word.
UK. The other day I was talking to a union rep who works in a call centre. Asking her how her members were getting on, she told me that a lot of them were reassessing their lives in the light of the Covid-19 crisis. “They’ve all been looking at the careers support tools – cos, let’s face it, no matter how lucky management try to tell us we are, working in a call centre is a shit job – and a lot of them don’t want to go back to that!”. From what I hear they are not the only ones.Continue reading Class War Daily 22 April 2020: Demand more!
