The population of Britain is facing a catastrophe because of Boris Johnson’s Tory government callous and barbaric inaction which is allowing the coronavirus to spread uncontrollably throughout the population.
The coronavirus is literally a life and death issue for millions of people. It has also simultaneously produced a gigantic global economic shock.
The experience of China shows the coronavirus can be brought under control. But so far, the capitalist Western countries are not taking these measures.
Through tremendous sacrifices China has brought the coronavirus under control – performing an enormous service not only to the Chinese people but also gave a crucial opportunity to the whole rest of the world to prepare.
In the West, instead of taking this opportunity and learning the positive lessons, the media and U.S. government engaged in anti-China propaganda – which has contributed to a looming crisis.
The claim from the Tory government and its army of media supporters that the latest Budget has ended austerity is completely false. It is very important for the left and the labour movement as a whole that they grasp the character of the new attacks to come, so that they can resist them.
On March 26th we mark the fifth anniversary of the start of the Saudi led war on Yemen. Those five dreadful years would not have been possible without the political and military support of the US and British governments.
The blatant lies and hypocrisy of the US have been exposed with the publication of a new study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). This shows there was no fraud in Bolivia’s presidential election last October.
