Interview with an NHS doctor: Tories are "paving the way for privatisation"

Capitalism is pushing us into a crisis of healthcare in Britain. Austerity in the NHS is having serious implications for the quality of patient care and the working conditions of those who look after us when we are sick. We publish here an interview with a junior doctor working in a central London hospital, which gives an insight into the situation facing the NHS today.

Corbyn, the arts, and revolution

We publish here a letter from a comrade in West Yorkshire, who highlights Jeremy Corbyn's programme for culture and the arts. Rather than simply protecting funding for the arts, socialists should be arguing for a revolution in how art is created, displayed, and distributed - and, in turn, for a revolution in how society is run and organised.

A genuine alternative to capitalism is needed and must be fought for.
