What We Saw

New wave quintet Squeeze put the - er - squeeze on David Cameron on the Andrew Marr show on 10 January.

The band changed the lyrics of its November 2015 single 'Cradle to the Grave' to protest against Tory housing policy. With true-blue Cameron turning red just feet away, frontman Glenn Tilbrook sang:

"I grew up in council houses

Part of what made Britain great

There are some here who are hell-bent

On the destruction of the welfare state"

The right-wing media is trying to smear striking medics as super-rich layabouts. The truth is that, while better paid than many, their strike is about defending the NHS as much as rightly protecting their working conditions. Doctors respond.

Working 12 days straight - no time for food shopping so treated myself to a meal deal, so decadent #SmearTheDocs

Junior Doctor, 28, uses THREE bags for life for one week of shopping. Excessive.

Finance appeal

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.

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 click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.
