LAYERS OF YOUR LEADERSHIP ARE COMING OUT WITH DANGEROUS INFERENCES ON THE FIVE STAR MOVEMENT; THE LEAGUE WITHIN ITALY; AND THEIR REACTION TO TRUMP’S TRADE WAR DECLARATION AS REFLECTING LEFT WING PRESSURES ON IMPERIALISM! BY ANTHONY BRAIN
The editorial of the Workers Revolutionary Party’s daily paper News Line on Friday 25 May
Note the imminent collapse of the world’s banking system and the welcome for the great progressive government just formed in Italy as part of a “revolutionary movement of workers and youth that is already up in arms”.
Yes, that’s right ITALY HAS A NEW ANTI EU, ANTI AUSTERITY COALITION GOVERNMENT we learn with absolute astonishment.
And we all thought the Five Star/League coalition was your far right Hindenburg/ Von Papen government on the road to fascism:
“What is clear is that no amount of restructuring can save Deutsche from a collapse that will bring down the eurozone and precipitate a crash of the entire world banking and financial system.

The latest banking crisis will only add more fuel to the revolutionary movement of workers and youth that is already up in arms, with France gripped by strikes, while workers in Italy have dealt a mortal blow to the EU with the election of the new anti-austerity, anti-EU coalition government.”
There are signs that layers of the WRP leadership are qualitatively degenerating. They cannot tell the difference between radicalisation and reaction by implying the vote for the Five Star movement and the League in last Sunday’s Italian general election represents a radicalisation. Then we have the outrageous statements from the WRP in their daily paper (the Newsline) that Trump is carrying out trade tariffs on steel and aluminium not for a layer of capital to keep their market share of profits but only to incorporate layers of the American working class. It is important to record the latest stage of the WRP’s degeneration in order to learn the political lessons. American Trotskyist Joseph Hansen recorded the degeneration of the WRP and their predecessors the Socialist League (SLL) during the 1960s and 1970s..
The WRP are the most extreme in their position on the Italian general election. There is confusion by the British Socialist Workers…
