The labour movement is failing to voice the interests of workers and their families in the Brexit debate, according to Britain's Communists.

'Echoing the fears and aspirations of the CBI, the Institute of the Directors and the City of London casino is not the same as speaking up for working class interests', general secretary Robert Griffiths told the Communist Party's political committee on Wednesday evening.

The media's 'Trump, Trump, Trump' obsession is attracting attention away from what imperialism is actually doing around the world', Liz Payne told the Communist Party executive committee last weekend.

The party's chair said that the major imperialist powers, led by the USA but also including Britain and France, were spreading conflict and terror in their vain efforts to solve a 'systemic crisis' of international capitalism by intensified domination, super-exploitation and a 'war economy'.

Communist Party of BritainIn response to Tony Blair's statement on Brexit and the Labour Party today January 4, 2018), CPB General Secretary Robert Griffiths said:

Jeremy Corbyn should take no advice from a discredited charlatan whose contempt for public opinion is exceeded only by his contempt for honest and truthful government. Instead of a Tory Brexit, we need a Labour Brexit - not a betrayal of 17.4 million Leave voters. Tony Blair's fanatical support for the anti-democratic, pro-big business EU is the last thing Labour needs if it wants to keep millions of working class electors and win millions more from UKIP and the Tories at the next General Election.

The Communist Party of Britain has condemned the Brexit Phase One agreement between the British government and the EU Commission announced today (December 8).

'This pro-big business, minority Tory regime is loyally carrying out the instructions of its EU Business Advisory Council to tie Britain to the EU single market for the foreseeable future, while paying through the nose for that dubious privilege', CPB general secretary Robert Griffiths declared.

The Communist Party has condemned what it calls Chancellor Philip Hammond's 'steady as the economy sinks' Autumn Budget.

CP general secretary Robert Griffiths said it reflected Tory priorities to 'fill the boots of private enterprise with public money' and shore up big business profits.

As real wages, benefits and living standards fall over the next four years and the British economy heads towards recession, he remarked, the Chancellor continues with planned cuts in corporate taxes and does nothing about tax-dodging havens under British jurisdiction around the world.

Morning StarAVOIDABLE tragedy has again hit a working-class community, with the Grenfell Tower inferno bringing out the best in our multicultural society and our overstretched emergency services.

Fire, ambulance and police services reacted without delay, risking their own well-being in the west London tower block to rescue survivors and minimise loss of life.

Local mosques, churches and community halls offered emergency accommodation and gave food, drinks and clothing to those who escaped the blaze.

pcpThe Portuguese Communist Party (PCP) commented the results auf the general elections in Britain:

The results of the early general elections in Great Britain constitute a political defeat of the Conservative Party that sought to strengthen the parliamentary support for a greater offensive against the social and labor rights of the British workers and people, and for a reinforced neoliberal and militarist policy and imperialism affirmation.

Communist Party of BritainRobert Griffiths, general secretary of the Communist Party of Britain (CPB), issued the following statement on the results of British elections: »Twelve million people have voted for a left-wing Labour manifesto and a majority of electors have rejected austerity policies. The Tories have no mandate for five months of public spending cuts, never mind another five years.
