“A Majority of Electors Rejected Austerity Policies”: CP of Britain

Although the CP of Britain is very small (+/-1,000 members), it has support from AKEL in Cyprus, which is one of the major parties there. We now have the colonialists being propped up by the colonials! Certainly, a turnaround, wot?

Twelve million people voted for a left-wing Labour manifesto and a majority of electors rejected austerity policies. The Tories have no mandate for five months of public spending cuts, never mind another five years. In raising Labour’s share of the poll by 10 percentage points to almost match the Tories, enthusing huge numbers of young people, Jeremy Corbyn and his leadership have been vindicated. So, too, has the emphasis placed by the Communist Party on the role of mass struggle and class politics in raising people’s class consciousness, confidence, and political understanding. This will help bring further advances for Labour in the new election that will be necessary in the very near future, once Theresa May resigns.
