If you think all the big political parties are the same - you're right! The bosses have got three parties - isn't it about time we had one of our own?
Campaign for a New Workers' Party Press Coverage
The following letter about Seumas Milne's comment on the BBC's 'White' season was carried by the Guardian on 15 March 2008:
Seumas Milne rightly condemns both the implicit racism of the BBC's White season and the failure of New Labour to represent either the black or the white working class. But he is wrong to believe the party can properly represent working-class interests. Inside the wreckage of New Labour exist neither the forces nor the will to divert the party from its neoliberal agenda.
Two years ago the Campaign for a New Workers Party launched a declaration for a new party to represent the working class - one that would reject neoliberalism and embrace socialist values. Since then more than 3,000 (mainly lay trade union officers) have signed the declaration. This considerable achievement could be bettered if those on the left of Seumas's standing abandoned the forlorn hope of reforming New Labour and supported our campaign.
