Topic: The Communist Party of Britain accepts questions

The website of the Communist Party of Britain now has an "Ask a question" feature available on their website. Go to any page and it'll appear in the form of a blue box on the left, clicking it opens a form in which one can ask a question (or multiple questions) within a 1, 000 character limit. They'll email you a reply when someone sees it I would imagine. I just sent this:

Curious socialist with some questions about the CP and its stances on other groups.
Does the CP accept Eurocommunists and strict Marxists who do not necessarily support Lenin or Leninism?
What is the CP's views towards the Green Party, Green Left, and the communist parties of France and Japan?
Is the CP aware of the Alliance for Inclusive Education?
Where in England has the Communist Party been most electorally successful?
Many socialists who support Cuba and Venezuela are staunchly critical of China, Laos, and Vietnam, and would argue that such countries are revisionst and simply posing as socialist for various reasons, however, Wikipedia claims that the CPB has "fraternal relationships" with the ruling Communist parties of all three of those countries. How does the CP counter claims that such regimes are revisionist?
And finally, how does the CP rate the mayoralty of Ken Livingstone?

Stay tuned for a "Marxist" analysis of Star Wars in which they claim that Darth Vader is a metaphor for George W. Bush and that the Dark Side is representative of US imperialism?

Generally any group that calls itself "the communist party" sucks ass.

Re: The Communist Party of Britain accepts questions

yo wobblies for life B I would join the IWW but I have to get rich  so I'm a closeted lefty until I'm rich lmao then I"ll be a campaign socialist all day

Re: The Communist Party of Britain accepts questions

Isn't the IWW more like a small club of reeanactors now?

Re: The Communist Party of Britain accepts questions

No it's pretty big

Re: The Communist Party of Britain accepts questions

Yeah I guess my comment was a bit harsh, 3,000 members is pretty good for an American leftist org.  Up here the IWW Montreal section had a fairly noticeable presence during the student strikes and on mayday. In Ottawa which is where I live around the IWW is the only active leftists other than the RCP(Maoists), both of which every now and then will hold a rally together and annoy the cops and business men slightly.  If I end up stuck in this shithole for an extended amount of time I might sign up for the wobblies.

Re: The Communist Party of Britain accepts questions

They were hardcore as fuck back in their hayday. Super interesting history.

Re: The Communist Party of Britain accepts questions

The IWW are cool, not as cool as they used to be though unfortunately.
The Canadian RCP are alright as far as I know, but don't they claim to be doing people's war against the Canadian state or something stupid like that?

Re: The Communist Party of Britain accepts questions

It's a sad state of affairs when I now consider what remains of the IWW to be among the better part of the left here.

The left is pretty dead in America, but did I ever tell you fucking pathetic the "Canadian left" is? It's fucking dead, and it's decaying carcass is a circus.  Outside of Quebec which has an anti-capitalist movement on par with that of the left in most of Europe, the rest of Canada is fucked, while students and workers in Quebec revolted against the Parti-Liberal's austerity measures the rest of Canada just stood by and most of the commentary on it was about those "fucking Lazy frogs". Acknowledging how hopeless and instilled Canada's white Anglophone majority is gets you called divisive.

Our politics all revolve around Canadian nationalism, your options come down to whether you would prefer hard right conservatism with a maple leaf, softer capitalism with a maple leaf, and welfare capitalism with a maple leaf. Being fully opposed to the Alberta oil sands makes even a lot of so called environmentalists uncomfortable because it means you would rather actually do something to prevent ecocide than grow our precious Canadian  economy.
I know the whole patriotism shit is the same in America and worse in some places of it, but the whole smug attitude that we're so much better than Americans pisses me off.

Anyway to finish, the last time the actual far-left was relevant in Canada ,not counting Quebec because Quebec is practically foreign to the Canadian public, was in 2010 during the Toronto G-20 because there was a fairly large protest in which some cop cars got burned and made the news, and then everyone forgot about it.

EDIT: Also remember the NDP? Our moderate social democratic party. They're not even taken seriously anymore, we're back to the old LibCon circus.

Yes the RCP claims to be doing peoples war, and apparently peoples war  means being a watered down black bloc that poses an inconvenience to the police and spray paints hammer and sickles on post boxes.

Re: The Communist Party of Britain accepts questions

I don't mind the RCP even if I disagree with them on a lot of things such as the fact that they're maoists and their opposition to Quebec independence.
It's just pretty sad to have them be the most noticeable part of the radical left here.

Re: The Communist Party of Britain accepts questions

They're opposed to Quebec independence? Fucking why?

Re: The Communist Party of Britain accepts questions

Reddie-boy can't handle glorious Anglo badassery.
