I wish

Robbie Rix reports on the Weekly Worker fighting fund

According to comrade LC, who sent us a £10 donation via PayPal this week, the Weekly Worker is playing an “admirable role”, both in this country and overseas - for example, in its “excellent coverage” of the US elections. But he’s hoping we’ll be able to resume printing soon, as “I really wish I could have it in front of me”. Reading it online is “just not the same”, he says.

Well, we share that desire, comrade, but, as you know, it’s just not possible until the lockdown has been finally ended. You never know - the Johnson government might suddenly discover some efficiency and get everyone vaccinated really soon. But let’s not count on it.

Another PayPal donor this week is US comrade PM, who came up with his regular £25, but, as usual, the biggest share came in the form of standing orders. Top of the list was comrade KB, with his tremendous £170, but there were also substantial contributions from MM (£75), PB (£60), TR (£40) and GB (£25).

All that comes to £405, taking our running total up to £811. But that leaves us well behind where we ought to be, with less than two weeks to go to reach our £2,000 target for November. We could do with a bit of a boost, so, if you want to help, please click on the PayPal link on our website or - better still - set up a standing order or make a bank transfer (sort code 30-99-64, account number 00744310).

Keep the money coming in, so that when the time comes we’ll be able to make LC’s wish come true!
