The Communist Party of Britain (Marxist–Leninist) (CPB(M-L)) is a British communist political party. The party was formed in 1968 by Reg Birch as a split from the Communist Party of Great Britain, siding with the Communist Party of China. The party published The Worker from 1969 until 2000, when it became Workers. The CPB(M-L) sided with Enver Hoxha in the Sino-Albanian split, and came to support the Soviet Union for a period in the 1980s, before dropping this line over Mikhail Gorbachev's reforms.

More recently, the CPB(M-L) has developed a national line for Britain - Rebuild Britain. The party is strongly opposed to the European Union.[1] CPB(M-L) members focus on work in the labour movement.
