The Workers Party of Britain, also known as Workers Party GB, is a minor socialist and hard Eurosceptic political party in Great Britain, founded and led by former Member of Parliament George Galloway. It holds no seats at any level of government.

History[edit]

The party was founded in December 2019, by the former Labour and Respect Party Member of Parliament George Galloway, following the 2019 United Kingdom general election.[1]

The Workers Party is affiliated with the Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist–Leninist) with its vice chair Joti Brar, daughter of Harpal Brar, also serving as deputy leader of the newly founded party.[2]

Ideology[edit]

The WPB declares itself committed to socialism with the party programme stating its opposition to "hyper-capitalism". It also says it "postively embraces Britain’s withdrawal from the EU".[3] Galloway claimed it was a party for patriotic working-class socialists.[4]
