The New Communist Party of Britain (as distinct from the Communist Party of Britain, not to mention the Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist-Leninist), the Communist Party of Britain (Marxist–Leninist),Wikipedia's W.svg the Communist Party of Great Britain (Provisional Central Committee) or the Revolutionary Communist Party of Britain (Marxist-Leninist)) is a British political party advocating communism, specifically Stalinism. It runs a newspaper entitled The New Worker.Wikipedia's W.svg The party should not be confused with the People's Front for Judea.

Views[edit]

The party's website praises Joseph Stalin, painting him as the heroic victim of "a seemingly endless torrent of lies" from "the unholy alliance of bourgeois politicians, social democrats, Trotskyites and revisionists."[1] The site also casts doubt on the death toll attributed to Stalin's gulags ("Surely some of those foreign observers would have noticed. Millions in the gulag camps? Even Trotsky with his network of informants, put it lower: thousands dead, tens of thousands imprisoned"[2]) and concludes that "The world has much for which to thank Stalin, Man of Unparalleled Success. What a tragedy there has been no one to succeed him."[3]

Stalin is not the only murderous dictator beloved of the party; their fondness for dictators even goes beyond the communist variety, as the party also supports the Bashar al-Assad government in Syria: "Genuine solidarity with the Syria’s [sic] communist and progressive forces goes hand in hand with defence of the Assad government in the face of imperialist threats", declares the site. "While the war of words goes on at UN HQ the struggle for peace in Britain has to be stepped up to prevent British involvement in yet another war against the Arabs."[4]

The New Communist Party of Britain use My enemy's enemy argument almost as much as Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist-Leninist).
