The perfect is the enemy of the good

Tory Party betrays the working class

This is a guest post by the Trotskyist Workers Alliance of Tolworth and Surbiton

The fact that the Conservative and Unionist Party is now led by David Cameron, an alumnus of Eton and Oxford, and has Boris Johnson, another alumnus of Eton and Oxford as its mayor of London, is proof that the Tories have finally forfeited all claims to be considered a party of the working class.

Since the late 1960s, the Conservative Party chose a series of leaders from the ranks of the proletariat: Edward Heath, Margaret Thatcher and John Major. As prime ministers, these committed sons and daughter of the people fought for the cause of proletarian internationalism and world socialism, as manifested in such policies as the Assisted Places Scheme and the Youth Training Scheme and in the goal of a ‘classless society’. Yet now, this proud tradition of proletarian Toryism has been betrayed by the accession of Cameron and Johnson; snotty sons of privilege; upper-class toffs. The Conservative Party can no longer be trusted to represent the interests of ordinary people, but will now simply act in the interests of the bourgeoisie and world capitalism.

The Trotskyist Workers Alliance of Tolworth and Surbiton unreservedly condemns this latest betrayal of the working class. We stand shoulder to shoulder with the workers of Britain in the fight for socialism. We demand that a new workers party be formed to uphold the legacy of Marx, Lenin, Trotsky, Heath, Thatcher and Major, and to defend the class interests of ordinary working people.

Workers of the world, unite !
