This category contains sites about the Communist Party of Britain (CPB) formed in 1988 by a disaffected group of the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB), which was the major communist party in the UK in the 20th century and disbanded in 1991.

Its political manifesto is Britain's Road to Socialism (BRS), which is revised from time to time. The youth wing of the party is the Young Communist League (YCL) which, though organisationally autonomous, is constitutionally tied to support the same manifesto.

The CPB is closely associated with the Morning Star, the communist British daily newspaper. Its editors were among the dissidents in 1988 and the Morning Star continues in the same relationship with the CPB as it did with the CPGB before the split. While it is an independent organization, it acts as the party newspaper and a guardian of the aims of the party.

The party is registered to contest elections in England, Wales and Scotland using the following descriptions in English and Welsh:

Britain's Communist Party, Communist, Communist Party, Communist Party of Great Britain, Communist Party Scotland, Scottish Communist Party, The British Communist Party, The Communist Party, The Communist Party Candidate, Wales Communist Party, Welsh Communist Party and Your local Communist candidate.
