The resistance to this policy of social murder on a mass scale has devolved to campaigners, increasingly militant medics and scientist as well as an honourable but small minority of the labour movement and left MPs. The bulk of the labour movement remains silent in its acquiescence.
No less than six new oil and gas fields are set for approval by the Tory government this year. It takes a peculiar kind of genius to argue that – faced with eye watering increases in gas prices – we need to avoid investing in alternatives to gas.
Cost of living crisis
Protests against austerity
Saturday 12 February
There is nothing progressive to be expected from the turmoil in the Tory Party. The underlying factors causing it, the policies of the Covid death toll and austerity, are supported by all possible Johnson rivals.
The decisions of both Joe Biden and Boris Johnson in recent days will ensure the Covid death toll will go far higher. Extending the pandemic allows the ruling class offensive to continue. It is the centrepiece of government policy. So the struggle will be a prolonged one.
Where next for the Covid crisis?
