Panama papers, steel crisis, junior doctors' contract, austerity...

Cameron resign now!

Tories out!

Take the wealth off the 1%

The Tories were already hated before the Panama Papers revelations. That they are a party of the rich and for the rich is constantly confirmed and re-confirmed.

Their vicious austerity measures have brought misery to millions through the cuts to benefits, job cuts, public service cuts, student fee hikes, bedroom tax and more.

And the Tories want to continue to slash government expenditure to further their aim of reducing corporation tax for big business and income tax for the rich.

Watching the movement in Iceland that brought down the prime minister there has whetted our appetite to remove this hated government.

Following Cameron's admission that he did benefit from his father's tax haven hoards, the demand for him to resign has rung out. Of the first 5,000 people who voted in a Mirror online poll, 95% want Cameron to resign.

This is a weak divided government that can be defeated. The resignation by IDS gave us a glimpse of this. We need to build a powerful movement that can force the government to call a general election.

National action needed

Never were bold action and socialist ideas more needed. We are facing the fight of our lives. The Socialist Party calls on the anti-austerity forces around Jeremy Corbyn and within the trade union leaderships to organise and build for a massive national demo.

The trade unions have funded a national demo on Saturday 16 April. They should now turn this into the launch of a massive national campaign to demand the Tories Out!

A demo should be linked to coordinating strike action of all those workers with ongoing disputes as a step towards a 24-hour general strike.

The background is crisis-ridden capitalism, a system so unequal that the richest 1% of the world's population own more wealth than all the rest of us combined. War, poverty, unemployment and austerity blight the lives of billions.

Socialist alternative

Increasing numbers of people are searching for an alternative. A YouGov poll revealed that more people in Britain have a favourable view of socialism than of capitalism. 47% of people surveyed in the US said they would be willing to vote for a socialist for president.

Socialist societies would be able, through planning the use of the world's enormous wealth and resources, to provide decent jobs, homes and services for everyone.

The Socialist Party fights for:

Join the fightback today!

The Panama Papers prove what the Socialist Party has been saying since 2010 - austerity is a lie! There is no lack of wealth in society; the problem is that the wealth is in the wrong hands.

Look at the obscenity of the secret housing empires that have been revealed. While homelessness stalks the land, 31,000 tax haven companies own British property.

Jeremy Corbyn won the leadership of the Labour Party promising council house building and rent controls. Socialists say Labour councils should stand up to the Tories and do what Corbyn said - build council houses and cap rents! There is enough money in council reserves to build hundreds of thousands of council houses now.

But there is even more wealth in the hands of the super-rich. Socialists say: Tax the super-rich and take over their empty properties to renovate and let as council property on genuinely affordable rents.

The rich are always on the lookout for how to increase their already huge share of society's wealth at our expense and to make the easiest profits. The steel crisis shows that they don't take the lives of workers and their families into consideration.

The intransigence of the Tory government against the junior doctors is because behind it stands the private healthcare companies. These vultures see public services and particularly health as extremely lucrative.

The Tories are legislating to aid their profiteering aims, including by driving down workers' pay. The same is true of the government's plans to force through the academisation of schools.
