|Time to say goodbye to Paul Dacre|
EXTRACT: We in the CPGB could not be any more explicit about where we stand on this issue. We may hate the Daily Mail - and the entire moneyed bourgeois press, for that matter - but we oppose any attempt at state censorship or control of what is published. If that means we are on the same side as Paul Dacre, Richard Littlejohn, Hugh Whittow, Tony Gallagher, etc - so be it. A price worth paying. We demand freedom of the press and will not tolerate some bureaucratic creep trying to interfere - for example - with the Weekly Worker. Our communist project of human liberation cannot succeed unless we convince the majority of people of the necessity for the revolutionary overthrow of the bureaucratic capitalist state - not an obvious or ‘common sense’ message. Hence we fight for the right to openly say what we want in the way we want, in whatever medium we care to choose.
