The main concern of the parties at election times to provide sterile soundbite opportunities for their leaders without fear of human intervention. The PR people still shudder at the thought of Gordon Brown’s ‘that bloody woman’ inadvertent soundbite. Our problem is to find out where the politicians will be as their appearances will be shrouded in secrecy. Sooo………….
In March 2015 we urge all class warriors to join their local Tory party so as to get access to times and places of bigwig visits. To avoid actually handing cash over to the bastards prevaricate, bounce a cheque or two. but volunteer for any security work, envelope stuffing, rent-a-tory appearances etc etc. By this time the Class War ‘Operations War Room’ will be fully functional in an East London warehouse and ready to twitter our information as soon as it comes in and greet the secret visitor with a shower of abuse and rotten eggs from our roving Class War rent-a-mobs. This of course applies to all three parties.
CLASS WAR OPERATIONS ROOM
As a final flourish get the party you’ve joined to provide you with a car to get you to the polls – bad back – and then vote CW and plaster the car seats with CW stickers. Have fun.
Tom Hodgkinson has just tipped me off about this book – anyone read it?
Just to say that I reckon this book is a must-read. It’s the EP Thompson of the American “Labor” (no u) movement. He shows how a shorter working day and week was its central focus till wrecked by Roosevelt’s “full-time, full employment” movement.
He also shows how unions from the fifties onwards colluded in the capitalist vision of long working weeks broken up by TV and shopping.
Until we get rid of this myth of the “good job” there will be no progress.
Fits well with the policy idea our candidate in South Croydon Jon Bigger is suggesting:
I thought I’d just drop you a line to remind you of that policy idea I had – a 4 hour working day or 20 hour working week with no loss of pay or jobs. The rich would just have to pay themselves less. It’s a vote winner!
As announced by Vic himself on this very blog last night – another great step forward for our campaign. We understand Vic has the support of some of the finest anarchist brains in Norwich………..and also NOW OR NEVER!! Imagine the merry mayhem these pranksters will bring to the campaign. Even now they are knee deep in voting statistics to see which Norwich seat Vic will contest or maybe both! Welcome Vic.
Time for us old 60′s radicals to get off our arses and show a bit of solidarity. See you there comrades.

@Classwar2015 now on Twitter for latest updates you won’t find here and much more mayhem and rumbles.
If you want to stand – do it. We can raise the money over the next 17 months. There are lots of people backing the campaign in various ways from websites to stickers to banners to electoral registration to intelligence gathering on our class enemies to photobombing to benefit organising to street brawling and beyond. There are also people who just want to stick their hands in their pockets to back the campaign………..so if you want to do it – do it. let me know…email@example.com
