Another blow for Boris. Johnson and Tories must go. General election now!

Six defeats in parliament in six weeks. A 'majority' of minus 44. And now the highest court in the land has unanimously ruled that Johnson unlawfully prorogued parliament.

It's time for him and all the Tories to go. We need an immediate general election to kick them out and elect an anti-austerity, Corbyn-led government, with a clear socialist programme.

The Labour Party conference passed a whole number of policies, such as scrapping Universal Credit, that would help working-class people and start to undo some of the damage inflicted by ten years of Tory cuts.

Combined with previous proposals to introduce a 10 minimum wage next year, build one million homes, increase spending on health and other public services, and take back into public ownership the utilities, the rail network, and Royal Mail, an election-winning programme is taking shape that can unite working-class people across the Brexit divide.

But Corbyn has to stand firm against the establishment and the Blairites in his own party who are doing everything in their power to sabotage the prospect of a Corbyn-led government and the confidence this could give to working people to fight for socialist policies.

Huge pressure will continue to rain down on Corbyn to backtrack on radical policies, including his call for an EU exit deal that defends the interests of workers, consumers and the environment, and to 'unite' with pro-austerity politicians for 'the good of the country'. He must resist, and energetically campaign and mobilise working-class people on an anti-austerity platform.
