Time To Go!
War in Iraq
Tony Blair - Bosses' puppet, cartoon by Alan Hardman
He lied about Weapons of Mass Destruction. 66% of people think Blair misled us about going to war with Iraq.

He's selling off the NHS to his fatcat friends. The NHS is understaffed, underfunded and health workers are underpaid.
He's wrecking education. Teachers are being sacked, students are facing top up fees and a lifelong debt burden and too many tests are stressing out kids and teachers alike.
New Labour are just another big business Tory party. Join the Socialist Party and our campaign to help build a new mass party that will fight for the interests of ordinary working people.

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.
The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.
The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.
- The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
- When the health crisis subsides, we must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
