Only a struggle for democratic power can defeat Trump and the system

In 1989 US philosopher Francis Fukuyama announced that  political history would end by showing, as the Cold War finished, that constitutional, representative democracy and capitalism like America’s would prove the only viable system for the modern age.This week a right-wing led insurgency against the very same political and economic system propelled maverick billionaire businessman Donald Trump into…See More

Admission is free. You can reserve your place at EventbriteThe government has imposed a ‘super mayor’ to rule over a combined authority and what is clear is the absence of democracy in the process. This is the case both in the way the original decision was made as well as how the new structure is planned to work.The People’s Plan for Manchester is gathering people’s views about a range…See More

The power and the potential of the social movement behind Corbyn

As voting gets under way in the contest for the Labour leadership, which is almost certainly going to result in the re-election of Jeremy Corbyn, it’s worth reflecting on the astonishing changes that have swept the party since the 2015 general election.Together with the huge rallies Corbyn has been holding – 5,000 turned out on a Sunday evening in Kilburn, for example – they represent a burgeoning social movement that has shaken the political establishment and the mainstream media to the core,…See More

Choose Project Real Democracy over Project Fear

This from A World to Win, arguing for a leave vote.The way in which Project Fear has saturated both sides of the official European Union referendum campaigns is reason enough to reject them and replace Westminster’s discredited political system with Project Real Democracy.An issue at the heart of the UK’s broken constitution has been overwhelmed by rhetoric, half-truths, lies, deceptions and fearful predictions of what will happen following either a remain or leave vote.Essential questions of…See More

Another Europe is possible

A World to Win's radical alternative to the EU and the progressive case for voting Leave in the referendumMany people have genuine misgivings, not to say fears, about the consequences of the United Kingdom voting to leave the European Union when the referendum on membership takes place in June. The authorised alternatives on offer are so reactionary that the best option, it would appear, is to vote to remain.Understandably, no one with a progressive thought in their heads wants to end up in the…See More

Once again Parliament fails the people - this time over Syria

Parliament’s vote to join in the bombing of targets in Syria, with a majority made respectable only with the backing of 66 pro-war Labour MPs, will do nothing to defeat Islamic State (Isis) and everything to stoke international tensions and a drive to war.The vote also shows once again how out of touch Parliament is. A majority of UK citizens remain opposed to the bombing and most do not think that they will make Britain’s streets any safer from an Isis-led attack along the lines that took…See More

Tax credits and the case for a new democratic constitution

Those campaigning for a new, democratic constitution can take heart from the fact that the present one is crumbling in front of our eyes. The conflict between the Lords and Commons over Tory plans to scrap tax credits is just one of many breaking points.The surest sign of a deepening crisis is that members of the unelected House of Lords felt sufficiently emboldened to defeat a financial policy passed three times by the House of Commons, ignoring warnings about constitutional implications.When…See More

How a united front can remove the Tories - open letter to Jeremy Corbyn

Dear JeremyYour stunning landslide victory in the election for leader of the Labour Party reflects the power of a seismic social movement for democratic change which already reverberates far beyond Westminster.Congratulations to all those who made it possible. An astonishing 16,000 helpers organised your leadership campaign. Tens of thousands of people came out of nowhere to produce a veritable political earthquake. You inspired young people like no other recent movement has done.Your triumph…See More

Why we must break through to a real democracy - A World to Win's post-election analysis

The Tory election victory cannot disguise the continuing break-up of the political-state system of rule and will actually hasten it. Over 75% of the UK electorate is unrepresented in any meaningful way while Scotland’s anti-austerity aspirations are blocked.What appears as a shock result belies a deep-going process of transformation, opening a period of political volatility of rising demands for rights that test and will break the limits of parliamentary democracy. Although turn-out was up…See More
