Daily Worker / Morning Star - Days in 1945/06

Founded in 1930 by the Communist Party of Great Britain, the Daily Worker was a broadsheet newspaper for the working man and trades unionist. Its coverage of the Spanish Civil War is uniquely valuable but the WWII axis between Germany and Russia created a problem for the Communist paper: in 1941, it was banned by the British Government for 18 months (until Germany invaded Russia and the Worker's editorial stance could be "realigned"; for the rest of the war, it was very pro-Alliance war effort.

In 1945, ownership was transferred to the People's Press and Printing Society (with which it remains) and, in 1966, the paper was relaunched as the Morning Star. Now a Monday-Saturday tabloid, the Star is reliant on donations from readers and well-wishers.
