The Morning Star is a left-wing British daily newspaper with a focus on social, political and trade union issues. Originally founded in 1930 as the Daily Worker by the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB), ownership was transferred from the CPGB to an independent readers' co-operative in 1945 and later renamed the Morning Star in 1966. The paper describes its editorial stance as in line with Britain's Road to Socialism, the programme of the Communist Party of Britain. During the Cold War, the paper provided a platform for whistleblowers exposing numerous atrocities, including publishing proof that the British military were allowing their forces to collect decapitated heads during the Malayan Emergency, publishing evidence of the USA's use of biological weapons during the Korean War, and exposing the mass graves of civilians killed by the South Korean government. The Morning Star has survived numerous attempts at censorship including being the victim of police raids and politically motivated libel suits, being banned by the UK government between 1941–1942, being banned by all British wholesalers for nearly 12 years, and threats by the British government to execute one of its journalists for treason. Despite these difficulties, the paper has lasted to become both the largest and longest-running socialist newspaper in British history. More information...
