A change in Tory leadership will not alter the government’s agenda, Communist Party warns

THE “rats are jumping the Johnson ship” but a change in Tory leader will not alter the government’s pro-big business, anti-democratic, racist and war-mongering agenda, Britain’s communists have said.

Former PCS national officer Tony Conway was speaking at the Communist Party’s political committee on Tuesday night as the news of ministerial resignations broke.

Mr Conway also called for “generalised strike action” as communications and Civil Service staff prepare to join railway workers, baggage handlers, lecturers and barristers in the fight for jobs, services and a living wage.

Mr Conway — the Communist Party’s anti-racism and anti-fascism commission convener — emphasised the need to overturn British state policy to deport refugees to Rwanda, which he said “rips up Britain’s solemn commitments in international and humanitarian law.”

The CP political committee also condemned the recent decision of the US Supreme Court to abolish the right to abortion, established by the Roe v Wade ruling 50-years ago.

“A woman’s right to choose now faces a fresh offensive in Britain and elsewhere,” Mr Conway said.
