UKIP and the EU

UKiPThe United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) grew out of the all-party Anti-Federalist League in 1993. Its founding leader, academic Alan Sked, resigned from UKIP after the 1997 General Election because, he claimed, others in the leadership were 'racist and have been infected by the far right'.

Here, Robert Griffiths, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Britain, provides a critical analysis of UKIPs role, policies and rising popularity.

The Case for EU Withdrawal

EU withdrawalThis pamphlet argues that the answer to austerity for the people of Euope is to witdrawal from the EU. It argues that:

  • The social gains won since the Second World War are being wiped out across Europe
  • The cause is the EU
  • Across Europe social democratic parties are losing their electoral base to the right and the extreme right
  • The cause is their failure to address the pro-big business politics of the EU
  • New democratic and cooperative economic relationships can be created between countries in Europe and across the world based on growth, public ownership and workers' rights - but not within the structures of the EUEU withdrawal is the answer to austerity, racism and xenophobia
