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 in reply to Polly Toynbee was carried in the Guardian Tuesday 5 August:

Unlike Polly Toynbee, I find David Miliband's intervention in the Labour leadership crisis offers not "an adrenalin shot of optimism" but another lethal injection of despair.

What does Miliband have to offer other than slick presentation? What policies are on offer? More PFI, privatisation, wage restraint and foreign military intervention. The policy differences between Brown and Miliband are minor, but the "man with the plan" does offer "breezy ease" in delivery, according to Toynbee. What optimism is there in that for ordinary working people?

Like many ex-Labour party members, I am looking with optimism for a new real alternative and now support the campaign for a New Workers' party. This campaign brings together those who want a real broad-left alternative to Brown, and Miliband for that matter.
