Louder than words

Money talks and supports, says Robbie Rix

Commenting on an article in the Daily Mail headlined “Communists back Corbyn”, comrade AN remarks: “Yes, but communists also articulate the need for a Communist Party to effect a revolutionary transition from capitalism to socialism.” And he adds: “The Weekly Worker puts that case every single week.”

I couldn’t have put it better myself, comrade. But AN goes one step further by putting his money where his mouth is and donating a very handy £50 via PayPal. While comrades TB (£30) and GS (£20) also made donations using the same method, they made no equivalent complimentary remarks. But money sometimes speaks as loud as words!

Those three were among the Weekly Worker’s 3,142 online readers last week - and they were also among those who clearly took heed of my appeal last week for a little “acceleration” in order to meet our monthly £1,750 fighting fund target. Another in that category is comrade TY, whose £50 cheque was more than welcome.

Finally, let me commend our regular standing order donors - namely SK, PM, DC, SS and GT - whose contributions added £377. So, all in all, it was an excellent weekly total of £527, taking our running total to £1,464. But that means we still need another £286 in just three days.
