I agree with Tim Gulliver (M Star April 19) that the Morning Star acts as a leading socialist voice across the labour movement, but I disagree with the rest of his letter.
If you disagree with the Labour Party’s policies but vote for them, it is akin to going to church when you don’t believe in God and about as useful too.
For too long the Labour Party has relied upon trade union funds and voters like Mr Gulliver — those who stick to the party because they feel there is no viable other party.
It is therefore time to do what the voters in Bradford West did — vote for an alternative socialist party, even if it is just a protest vote.
How can we convince Labour’s leaders to ditch its capitalist and imperialist policies if we keep voting for them?
The “critical support” Mr Gulliver speaks of is like telling off your badly behaved child but still giving him the sweets he demands.
Yes, Tusc is not a nationwide party but it is a start.
It is an attempt to build a party that campaigns on the streets and promotes the only viable economic system: socialism.
It is time for us as socialists to unite. I would like the CPB to join Tusc to expand the constituencies and wards that Tusc stand in.
While there are many progressives in the Labour Party, none are in a position to steer their policies away from those dictated by the dangerous ideologies of Blair.
I beg Labour voters to ask themselves has anything changed since Blair left? And remember that some of the leaders of the Labour Party should be in prison rather than power.
