ON 8 May 1945 the wartime allies, Britain, the Soviet Union and the United States, declared victory over fascism in Europe. Approximately 50 million people had been killed in the war - half of them civilians and almost half within the borders of the Soviet Union. Many millions died in the concentration camps: Communists, Socialists, all those opposing fascism and up to six million Jews, Roma and gays, victims of a hate-filled ideology designed to divide working people.

Rather, they prefer to whip up 'nationalist hysteria' against a foreign enemy in which anyone who questions attacks on Russia or challenges higher British spending on armaments will be accused of treachery.

'This was the trap set for Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party leadership and then supported by right-wing Labour MPs', Mr Foster accused.

But the Labour leader had been right to insist that the British government should provide 'clear evidence' for its claims of Russian involvement in the Salisbury attack on a former spy and his daughter.

'All of them have identified themselves closely with the EU and its disastrous neoliberal orientation in favour of austerity, privatisation and so-called "free market" policies that are destroying public services, the welfare state, collective bargaining, job security and social well-being', the CP international secretary continued.

'It would be madness, therefore, for the Labour Party to commit itself to any future arrangements binding Britain to EU single market rules that would prevent a left-led government from pursuing its popular manifesto programme', Mr Foster insisted.

The labour movement is failing to voice the interests of workers and their families in the Brexit debate, according to Britain's Communists.

'Echoing the fears and aspirations of the CBI, the Institute of the Directors and the City of London casino is not the same as speaking up for working class interests', general secretary Robert Griffiths told the Communist Party's political committee on Wednesday evening.

The media's 'Trump, Trump, Trump' obsession is attracting attention away from what imperialism is actually doing around the world', Liz Payne told the Communist Party executive committee last weekend.

The party's chair said that the major imperialist powers, led by the USA but also including Britain and France, were spreading conflict and terror in their vain efforts to solve a 'systemic crisis' of international capitalism by intensified domination, super-exploitation and a 'war economy'.

Communist Party of BritainIn response to Tony Blair's statement on Brexit and the Labour Party today January 4, 2018), CPB General Secretary Robert Griffiths said:

Jeremy Corbyn should take no advice from a discredited charlatan whose contempt for public opinion is exceeded only by his contempt for honest and truthful government. Instead of a Tory Brexit, we need a Labour Brexit - not a betrayal of 17.4 million Leave voters. Tony Blair's fanatical support for the anti-democratic, pro-big business EU is the last thing Labour needs if it wants to keep millions of working class electors and win millions more from UKIP and the Tories at the next General Election.

The Communist Party of Britain has condemned the Brexit Phase One agreement between the British government and the EU Commission announced today (December 8).

'This pro-big business, minority Tory regime is loyally carrying out the instructions of its EU Business Advisory Council to tie Britain to the EU single market for the foreseeable future, while paying through the nose for that dubious privilege', CPB general secretary Robert Griffiths declared.

The Communist Party has condemned what it calls Chancellor Philip Hammond's 'steady as the economy sinks' Autumn Budget.

CP general secretary Robert Griffiths said it reflected Tory priorities to 'fill the boots of private enterprise with public money' and shore up big business profits.

As real wages, benefits and living standards fall over the next four years and the British economy heads towards recession, he remarked, the Chancellor continues with planned cuts in corporate taxes and does nothing about tax-dodging havens under British jurisdiction around the world.
