After months of crises and scandals, faced with a growing rebellion in his ranks, Boris Johnson has finally fallen on his sword. But the Tory leader’s departure will not solve any problems for the ruling class. Instead, explosive events impend.
Johnson’s government is imploding, with the resignation of two leading cabinet members last night. Whoever ends up in Number 10, however, faces a perfect storm of stagflation and struggle. We say: Throw them all out – and their rotten system!
Drunk on their victory at the national conference, the Unison bureaucracy has scandalously stripped Paul Holmes of every elected position he holds in the union. The left must urgently mobilise a rank-and-file fightback against this outrage.
The Met Police has been placed under special measures following a litany of high-profile scandals. But workers and youth should place no faith in these toothless tweaks and ‘reforms’. We must fight to throw out the entire rotten system.
With inflation soaring, the apologists of capitalism are demanding that workers show ‘wage restraint’ to subdue prices. Workers are not the cause of rising costs, however, but the victims of this crisis. To fight inflation, we need expropriation!
