CHARLIE MOORE, a lifelong socialist, trade unionist and working class fighter, died last week aged 89.
Charlie, who was a longtime member of the Communist Party, always kept in touch with socialist politics despite debilitating illness in the past few years. He was an avid reader of Socialist Worker and Socialist Review. Charlie could always be relied on to cut through the spin and claptrap offered by Blair and Co, in place of the real socialist politics to which he remained totally committed.
In his younger days Charlie was an active trade union organiser and spirited opponent of the bosses, both in the Hackney area and later on when he moved to work in Harlow. Charlie's good humour, resilience and immense political sense will be missed by comrades in Harlow. Our condolences to Christine and family.
