Alive and red, Communists back from the dead

DUST off your berets and polish your lapel pins — the Communists are officially back.

The Communist Alliance has lodged an application with the Australian Electoral Commission for federal registration.

"The Cold War had an effect on people's opinion of communist ideas. That is so long ago that there are a lot of young people coming back to communism," Mr Irving said.

"These days the political rhetoric of the past against the communists does not hold much resistance to ordinary people," Mr Irving said.
