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?
Question Time and the BNP
The following letter from a supporter of the CNWP was carried in the Independent on 22 October 2009:
The NoEU convenor Bob Crow, of the RMT, was refused a place on Question Time during the European elections. Now The Guardian and Independent have given the BNP and Nick Griffin saturation publicity but the NOEU, representing working-class interests and fighting racism and privatisation, got none. With Griffin invited on Question Time, it shows you what a rotten media and rotten economic system we have that does not represent working-class interests.
When you have to be middle class and cannot be a socialist, but must have establishment politics in the media, it shows how ordinary people are voiceless and disenfranchised. Socialists will protest at Griffin being allowed on Question Time. But with no socialists or left-wing voice to challenge his poison, he will make mincemeat of the establishment politicians who have no answers or way out of this capitalist crisis. All three main parties are calling for cuts in public spending and privatisation, which will hit working-class people the hardest.
Middle-class hand-wringing and calling Griffin a racist is not going to win an argument. Alternatives to the rotten free market have to be put forward to defeat the BNP.
