Moving Leftwards?


Hunter has just been browsing the latest Early Day Motions (EDMs) in Parliament. One motion, EDM1948, heaps praise on the merger of two unions and on Derek Simpson and Tony Woodley, the left-wing leaders of the Unite union. Who wrote is? George Galloway? John McDonnell? Diane Abbot? Jeremy Corbyn? No, step forward Bob Spink, the Conservative-to-UKIP member for Castle Point. Hunter wonders if Spink is another Alan Amos in the making...

Good grief! This is classic marxist stuff: 'Workers Unite!' and the end of the EDM isjust a paraphrase of Clause 4 of Labour's constitution--which they ditched how many years ago?
