The Morning Star is a left-wing British daily newspaper with a focus on social, political and trade union issues.

The paper was founded in 1930 as the Daily Worker by the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB). In 1945, ownership was transferred from the CPGB to an independent readers' co-operative, and it remains wholly owned by its readers. The Daily Worker was renamed the Morning Star in 1966. The paper describes its editorial stance as in line with Britain's Road to Socialism, the programme of the CPGB.[1]

Given the gravity of allegations of anti-semitism, the role performed by the BBC is all the more critical if it is to live up to Reithian principles of informing the public."

I also support them and send them my full solidarity. The irony is that Putin will see them as the enemy within — just as our government (and loyal opposition) treats us.
