Pole of Proles - With the government?s proposed new test of ?Britishness?

Answers

Mostly a?s You are a fat Tory bastard. What are you doing reading
Class War?
Mostly b?s You obviously think you are a class warrior but have
got mixed up with the Trots. Please leave now and do something
useful with your life.
Mostly c?s Congratulations you have passed the test. See you on
the next riot!

Notes and Corrections
Apologies to Norwich Anarchists who had paid for an advert in
the last Class War but we forgot to put it in! Or was it that we
could not understand their bumpkin accents?

Unfinished Business
Back in 1992, Class War and AK Press published ?Unfinished
Business - The Politics of Class War? It was the clearest
statement yet of our beliefs, politics and practices.
A lot of things have changed since 1992. Back then few people
had heard of the Internet or new Labour. Northern Ireland was
locked into the long war of the ?troubles?. Osama Bin Laden was
best mates with the CIA, whilst Eastern Europe was just
beginning to throw off the shackles of Soviet communism. The
thought of Arsenal playing attractive football, or Ken Bates selling
Chelsea to a Russian billionaire seemed absurd.
Whilst we are proud of much of the analysis in Unfinished
Business (and we still get orders for it each month) its time we
looked again at updating many of the points in there, and
analysing some of the changes that have occurred and continue to
occur.
We welcome any views, or comments on the book, to the London
Class War address by 1st June.
