I SPENT yesterday polishing my tattoos, as one does. While honing my likeness of Cantona, I wondered whether our coffers here at the workers’ paper are locked and loaded.
Well, I checked, as there never has been a barrier to prevent anyone donating money to our cause in my experience — and it is a fact that the Morning Star has never, ever, been loaded.
The way this phrase is being bandied about, I have to tell you that the hair on my Cantona tattoo turned orange when a certain voice came over the airwaves.
In reality, when the preposterous Trump spits out these John Wayne-type phrases, he places the whole world in danger. It’s not only North Korea he threatens, he is also threatening military action against Venezuela. He seems to want to tweet us into war after war with anyone who upsets him.
This is particularly dangerous for us, because the Tories are so hand-in-glove with the Yanks on foreign policy that where Trump pitches up, we are likely to follow.
The Morning Star will not change our view that Trump and his cohort Pence are enemies of the people. Grotesque they may be, but they control the world’s biggest nuclear arsenal and they are forever hovering their fingers over the button.
Our paper must speak out, and we call on our readers to support us financially so that our voice is there with all of us fighting for a nuclear-free world.
You can’t buy a revolution, but you can help the only daily paper in Britain that’s fighting for one by donating to the FIGHTING FUND. The Morning Star is unique, as a lone socialist voice in a sea of neoliberal media. We offer a platform for those who would otherwise never be listened to, coverage of stories that would otherwise be buried. The rich don’t like us, and they don’t advertise with us, so we rely on you, our readers and friends. With a regular donation to our monthly Fighting Fund, we can continue to thumb our noses at the fat cats and tell truth to power. Donate today and make a regular contribution...
