The Socialist 21 September 2016, #KeepCorbyn: Kick out the Tories and the Blairites

spotBattle lines drawn: build a real mass party of the 99%

Editorial of the Socialist: As the Socialist goes to press, polls are closing on the Labour leadership election. It is no exaggeration to say that this is a pivotal moment for the Labour, trade union and anti-austerity movements.

spotAll Greater Manchester firefighters face sack

The employment practises of Mike Ashley's Sports Direct are being brought to Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service. All firefighters in Greater Manchester face the sack. One in five permanently, and the other 80% only rehired if they agree to worse contracts.

spotNew Tory attacks on Higher Education - a programme to fight back

The Tory government's HE Bill represents one of the most serious attempts at privatising universities. Raising tuition fees, creation of for-profit universities, as well as the widely criticised teaching excellence framework, are all part of making higher education part of the marketplace.

spotAfter TUC congress 2016: Mobilise the anger!

This year's TUC Congress came only months after the forced resignation of David Cameron following the Brexit vote, the introduction of the most oppressive anti-trade union laws in the industrial world and the continuation of austerity.

spotThousands of Post Office workers strike

Thousands of Communication Workers Union (CWU) and Unite members working in the Post Office took strike action on 15 September against attacks on their job security and pensions.

spotLibya: imperialist intervention helped wreck country and revolution

There was nothing for the Libyan people to celebrate in the damning report by a Commons parliamentary committee into the British government's role in the West's contribution to overthrowing the brutal Gaddafi regime in 2011. This was an intervention which helped lead to the almost complete collapse of the country.

spotUncovering the class struggle behind the Rebecca Riots

Non-fiction - 'Petticoat Heroes': This is not only a modern, class analysis of the 19th century 'Rebecca riots' - but also looks at the subjects of gender and culture in relation to the riots for the first time, providing fascinating interpretations alongside meticulous research.
