"The Communist Party of Britain aims to 'put Britain on the road to socialist revolution'."
At the beginning of the 1960s (around 1962) the British Communist Party adopted @The British Road to Socialism' as its policy, in doing so it eschewed and pretence of revolutionary aims that it ever had (if it ever had any)
It decided on a 'Parliamentary' plan of activity and concentrated all its work on locl and campaigning issues.
In doing so, it attrated the contempt of all genuine Left organisations and became a 'revisionist' group.
You only have to read 'The Morning Star' or 'Marxism Today' (if it still exists, to see wat a conventional party the C.P. has become
THis 'spying' nonsense is real Len Deighton or John Le Carre stuff - dreamed up for suppressing new ideas in a failing society
As far as openly praising the Soviet Union and China are concerned - the two were constantly at each others throats - they even went to war at one stage.
That both improved the lives of their people is beyond argument - they moved from being backward feudal dictatorships to being world leaders in a matter of decades
That people may be unhappy at the way they did that is a point of discussion, but no nation who poured burning petrol on peasants, as the U.S. did, or dropped atomic bombs on cities full of civilians, or slaughtered third World countries for oil, or propped up up murderous dictators while they imprisoned, raped and murdered their opponents.... as the West has been doing for nearly a century has left itself any room to condemn the actions of others
At present, Briain's ally, Assad, is in the process of slaughtering the occupants of a city, while our leaders stay silent and work their little balls off to keep refugees from the current slaughter from polluting our 'green and pleasant land'
Grow up Iains and stop reverting to stupid arguments that have helped keep us ignorant of what our leaders are doing

So let's talk about Corbyn and Labour and Brexit in a way that is relevant.

Rumour has it that his speech on Monday will declare Labour will seek 'A' customs union, but it cannot be 'THE' customs union.   This seems to me a crucial speech. He may back out and not say anything at all. After this build up, the Tories and Brexiteers would exploit the hell out of that, and it could dismay and lose a lot of his support.

Or, if he overdoes the distinction between 'A', and 'THE', he risks an immediate answer from the EU that this is still "cake and eat it", with a slightly different cake. "Agree where we want, differ where we want? How is that different to Teresa May's stance?" they may say. Again, I could see that being exploited to make a hard Brexit more likely. "You've tried everything else with no success so a complete break is the only option" will be the most pleasant thing they will say.

So the only winning position I see is for the EU response to be "We can take that as a negotiating position. Naturally we disagree, but we can work from there".

It will be a tough speech to pitch correctly.

The Labour Party and Momentum will join forces with the Communist Party of Britain at a ?cooperation? meeting next month. The CPB are the Marxist-Leninist wing of Britain?s communist movement. They are holding a ?fraternal? conference where they will team up with Corbynistas to plot joint aims and activities. Momentum officer Michael Calderbank will speak at the meeting entitled: ?Working With Labour for a Socialist Future?. Adverts for the event show two red hands grasping each other, one emblazoned with the Labour Party?s red rose logo, the other with the communist hammer and sickle?

The Communist Party of Britain aims to ?put Britain on the road to socialist revolution? by means including ?extra-parliamentary struggle.? The party openly praises the Soviet Union, Maoist China and other totalitarian communist regimes. Who needs Agent COB when you?ve got Labour openly working together with communists?

An amusing gem from guido:

The Information Commissioner?s office has written to MPs to remind them not to share their usernames and passwords with others. Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham wrote to all MPs this week:

    ?My office observed reports from social media in early December 2017 in which a number of Members openly revealed their practice of sharing their login details and passwords. I was concerned by these reports and have decided to write to all Members to highlight the importance of following good practice in respect of password management and information security.?

During the Damian Green scandal press reports noted the practice of MPs sharing their passwords with staff. Sharing passwords could give MPs plausible deniability over their online actions?

The letter from the ICO came to MPs in the notoriously impregnable form of a Microsoft Word document. The properties tab in Word revealed the username of the document?s author and members of ICO staff who had edited it. Some way to go to achieve max info sec?

according to the FT) Was Was Jeremy Corbyn a spy? shuffling scruffily around St James?s Park with his cling-filmed sandwiches, looking for dead drops ? or screwing tiny microphones into the lids of his jars of home-made jam before presenting them to unsuspecting colleagues.
"In John le Carré?s most recent novel, A Legacy of Spies, George Smiley laments ?a cause the world barely remembers? ? and, as so often, he is right. The worst possible reaction to the reports of Corbyn?s Czech connection is also the most common: who cares?" To which the old adage "you can tell a man by the company he keeps" requires to be displayed everywhere in four foot fluorescents. The allegations cannot be dismissed as an irrelevance. Who controls the past controls the future, as all totalitarians know. But it is also true that those who insist upon understanding the past have the best chance of safeguarding their own liberty.

I wouldn't expect Spanish fishermen to chose a sudden cessation of being able to fish British waters to a longer (3 years, 5 years, 10 years?) period of fishing UK waters in which to plan for their future fishing areas.

Nor would I. But that is precisely what gets us back to how does this benefit the UK fishing industry. The Spanish still have the licence to fish. I, were I a UK fishing fleet owner, still have what I have now, or have perhaps had it extended to the maximum my existing fleet can cope with, but should I invest in new boats knowing that when the Spanish licence comes to an end there is no guarantee the Spanish will not win the next round, so all my investment is wasted?

Unlike many Brexit issues, I think this one is actually soluable, but only if 'getting back control' means the UK will actively control it rather than just letting the market decide. It will have to refuse some profitable licences to help UK industry. Totally against what Longworth says we need to do to get the Brexit benefit, but hey ho!

As I said originally, this is complex. We can only sell the licences to people interestes in buying them and i expect that they would be seeking long lasting licences. I don't know, of course, but it seems likely. And if the licence is even moderately long term - say ten ywars - we get back to long term investment in UK industry with no financial return.
Whether we have a 'cliff edge' exit in March 2019, or an extension to December 2020, I wouldn't expect Spanish fishermen to chose a sudden cessation of being able to fish British waters to a longer (3 years, 5 years, 10 years?) period of fishing UK waters in which to plan for their future fishing areas.
Of course, if there was a sudden stop, with no uptake of licences, and the UK fishing fleet too small initially to maximise the catch, then that may be good for the fishing stocks in our waters.

By the way, Dave, I agree Iains deserves a pat on the back for finding a prediction saying Brexit can be positive which has some arguments to say why.

However, lines in the article need to be read between. Fot example the phrase "Seek the lowest-cost sources of energy rather than burdening consumers with massive bills" means precisely what is says. There are pressure to create more open cast coal mines in the North East despite the government line that they will all be closed by (I think) 2025. Local environmental damage? Long term pollition and carbon emissions? Pah! Cheap is all that counts. Fracking? If it is cheap, bring it on.

Once we have the control we can issue licences to maximise/control the amount of fishing, but allowing it to continue while we get our own fishing fleet back to its previous size (in line with our new fishing area). At which time, time limited licences (to businesses in other countries) will expire to be replaced by increased licences to UK companies.

This is a very interesting one. It may or may not happen, but it is no simple matter.

That could give us big problems in the meantime as we are talking investment with no short term return

We have severely depleted our fishing fleets and the supporting facilities and it will take years to build them back up again.

The fact that we have a depleted fishing fleet does not cause a problem. We will be 'taking back control of our fishing grounds'. That does not have to mean we will fish them ourselves, but we will have control of any issue of fishing licences for them, and for how long those licences will be valid

===========

So Nigel is quite clear that getting control of the fishing grounds does not imply we fish them ourselves. Quite how that helps our fishermen - rather than big business ptentially from outside the UK - I leave you two to explain.


I thought the answer would be implicit in my earlier reply:

Of course I can but it isn't half as much fun as pointing out that a link to post brexit benefits says 'file not found' :-)

A much better article on Jeremy 'Stalin' Corbyn in the Independant.

Enjoy

The whole yarn has been utterly discredited, and the good old Daily Mail is simply bringing the press into disrepute. Let it go, Iains. It's making you suffer.

The story that some would argue has no legs, not only has more legs that a millipede, but is growing wings as well. Would the CIA keep tabs on corbyn, unless they felt there was sufficient reason?

D the G. Just goes to show the guardian not only has a problem with spelling. But I am sure a resourceful gnome can hop off his toadstool and find a missing link.
Any way- a partial taster!
All the benefits of Brexit are entirely independent from the single market and the customs union, except in so far as membership of these prevents us from crystallising them. There is also a potential and massively important fringe benefit of Brexit, in that the government will now have to do the things that George Osborne failed to deliver and which have been resisted by the City-dominated Treasury for so long.

We need to rebalance the economy, and from this imperative government no longer has a hiding place. Our new freedom and EU contribution monies mean the government, at last, has the mandate and the resources to support our small and medium-sized exporters, and not be transfixed by the often protectionist multinationals. We must invest in universities and research and development and actually build infrastructure, not just talk about it. Seek the lowest-cost sources of energy rather than burdening consumers with massive bills. Provide non-equity loan capital and finance for entrepreneurs, growing firms and the tech sector, even if it means the City turning a buck less.

Immigration must be cut, but not at the expense of talent and jobs. Bone fide university students should be assessed for immigration at the point of graduation, not entry ? after all, education is a service sector ?export? as much as selling Burberry handbags, and creates a network around the world and a pool of talent for business. We want the brightest and the best in this country, alongside investment in the development and training of our young people to ensure they are as employable as possible. It is shameful that we have nearly 600,000 unemployed under-25s........

The article is by John Longford, who was co-chair of "Leave means Leave".

Thanks for the evidence that the Guardian is sufficiently grown up to publish opinion pieces that represent a wide range of views. Not all papers are.

Absolutely perfect, Iains. A link to these huge benefits says 'not found'. I couldn't have put it better :-)

I have no intention of justifying anything whosoever to you Keith. There is no point other than to give you the attention you are seeking. You are better seeking that from someone who gives a toss what you think. Now, how about some benefits that are not disputed?
