30-07-2003 19:20Jack Kemp's dubious role as liaison/broker between London based Free Market LLC and the Hugo Chavez regime in Venezuela, in an oil contract also involving the U. S.

30-07-2003 17:20Since 1979, as a result of the strategies of all successive governments, the gap between the wealthy and the impoverished is the greatest since records began. In a study of 25 countries, child poverty in Britain was the third highest, outstripped only by Russia and our other free-market model, the United States. The example of the United States—the most powerful country in the world—demonstrates that the prosperity of the few invariably goes hand in hand with the degradation of the many.
It also shows that a nation’s economy can be successful while the living standards of its people fall. The continued wealth and visibility of middle Britain is entirely dependent on the continued impoverishment of working class children in particular.
The IWCA strategy is straightforward. It recognises that if the working class is to recover its share of the national cake and bring about a return in the level of investment in health, education and pensions to even pre-Thatcher levels, the working class must first retake political control and responsibility for its own communities.
In practical terms this means bringing an independent working class analysis into the heart of local government thinking throughout Britain. In electoral terms it means supporting those candidates who are committed to putting the immediate interests of the working class first.
Please note: the programme itself is, and has to be, an evolving document. It has to reflect the changing experiences of the working class and our experience as a campaigning party. Undoubtedly, as the IWCA begins to grow, people will join with new areas of expertise and experience which will feed back into the manifesto
