The Conservative manifesto: for the few, not the many

The publication of the Conservative Party manifesto has made it clear that the choice facing Britain in the coming election is the starkest in recent memory. The depth of the crisis has forced the Tories to attack their most loyal support base, the elderly. Like Cameron before her, however, Theresa May's hubris could prove to be her downfall.

Solidarity with Manchester: Workers must stand united

Twenty-two people have been killed and 59 injured in the most deadly terrorist attack on British soil since the London 7/7 bombings. We condemn this barbaric atrocity and offer our solidarity to those in Manchester in these turbulent times. We must fight against both fundamentalism and right-wing demagogy - and against the capitalist system that breeds them both.

Tories in retreat: All-out for a Corbyn victory!

Within hours of the launch of the Tory manifesto, the Conservative lead over Labour in the polls was slashed by half. The political ground has begun to shift. With the polls narrowing, Labour has everything to play for. The whole Corbyn movement must now mobilise in order to deliver a mortal blow against this Tory government.

The great rental rip-off: say no to parasitic landlords!

Every day, a new scandal emerges about the state of Britain's rental market, with rip-off landlords charging eye-watering levels for shoddy accommodation. We publish here three short pieces that give an insight into the horrific conditions and parasitic behaviour promoted by rentier capitalists and speculators.

"Exhausted and dehumanised": the story of a care worker

We provide here the story of care worker and Socialist Appeal reader, who outlines in moving detail the horrific conditions facing care workers and the people they support.
