Richard Bagley, new editor for the Morning Star, the only socialist daily in the English speaking world, set out his aims in an interview this week. 

"On Saturday I set out a vision for the Morning Star in coming years that aims to put the readers at the centre of its strategy to grow.
Growth couldn't come soon enough given the right-wing assault launched over the weekend.
The unholy alliance of big business front organisation the "Taxpayers' Alliance" and the more openly pro-capitalist Institute of Directors were on top Mr Evil form, seizing opportunistically on the phoney debt crisis to promote a raft of tax cuts.
They spun the proposals as bringing home the "equivalent" of an additional £5,000 a family per year by 2012.
They of course failed to mention that this would only be the case if we all got an equal slice of the country's economic wealth in our pay packets. Hardly.
In fact their proposed tax cuts would simply go straight into big business pockets at the expense of public-sector spending.
If any extra evidence were needed of the true intent of the fat-cat directors' institute it popped up in our email inboxes at William Rust House an hour or so later.
Responding to details of a report promoting employment rights cuts written for the Cameron government by vulture capitalist Adrian Beecroft, shameless IoD director-general Simon Walker blamed people with jobs for keeping unemployed people out of work.
"Excessive labour market regulation discriminates against people seeking to enter the workforce," he declared.
"There are a million young unemployed people who are losing out because employment law protects existing employees at their expense."
His members are clearly licking their lips at the prospect of rights cuts to allow them to use the growing pool of the unemployed to fire their current workers and hire cheaper labour.
This weekend's nasty Tory nuggets represent the latest salvo of a full-on onslaught on working people's rights from a multimillionaire right wing emboldened by similar assaults taking place across Europe.
It couldn't be much more blatant.
It's lucky for us, then, that the Morning Star is still here and ready for action.
In fact today we're going to be touring one of the two new Trinity Mirror printing presses - one in Oldham, one in Watford - which will be pumping out your Daily Miracle every day from Monday June 18.
For many of you, that day may pass by unnoticed.
There may be a few cosmetic changes here and there, but that will be the only evidence.
For others - including the staff at the paper - the new contract will bring a dramatic difference.
In the run-up to the switch we have been looking at the geographical parts our paper's long had difficulty reaching. That's where we plan to focus our initial energies as we hunt to slay our financial demons and drag ourselves up by our bootstraps.
Our long-suffering Scottish readers - a group of whom were pictured in Saturday's Star at their regular central Glasgow pitch - will finally get the paper every day of publication, on the day of publication thanks to our twin-site printing and a new distribution deal.
What's more we're planning more Scottish content to make the most of the switch, with the bold aim of increasing our sales by 500 per cent.
It won't all be plain sailing, but with trade unions and readers and supporters groups behind the push we've a fighting chance of making it.
And next week a delegation from William Rust House will be heading to Tyneside for a two-day trip to meet supporters and friends in the North-East see how we can improve our links there.
If you're in the area then come down to the Salsa Bar, 89-93 Westgate Road, Newcastle, at 7.30pm on Monday June 28 to join an informal discussion. There's lots for us to talk about.
Those of you reading this from Wales TUC should also know that we have your nation in our sights. There's certainly room for greater readership in Wales, and hopefully some of you who only ever see the paper in the conference hall will think about joining our big 2012 push and taking out a subscription at your local newsagent straight off.
One or two of you have already been in touch following my article on Saturday to offer reports and assistance to the paper to get it back on its feet and fighting fit.
Thanks to those who have already - in the next couple of months we'll be releasing detailed guidance on how precisely you can get involved.
For now, though, we're preparing for the big June 18 switch.
Industrial reporter Tony Patey - himself an old Trinity Mirror man - will be along today too. Watch out for his take on events some time in the next couple of weeks."
