From Hardie To Corbyn
by David Brandon
Due for publication in 2017
From Hardie to Corbyn - whatever happened to the Labour Party?
Since the Labour Party’s foundation, effective power has rested with a small élite: the leader, the Parliamentary Labour Party and those who head the major trade unions.

by Andrew Fisher
It is politicians not bankers that must take most of the blame for 2008 financial collapse. It was the credit crunch that exposed the frailties of a failed economic experiment.
This is an unusual analysis that cannot be ignored…
Whether it is Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton who occupies the White House, America’s love affair with Israel is about to be renewed.
But at what cost?
No one should be surprised at Sadiq Khan change of loyalties. The Radical Read Project predicted this as soon as he was elected Mayor.
The Labour Party has some very angry members. Those who joined after 12th January are now being denied the right to vote in the coming leadership election.
Some of these members are asking for their money back. The general response seems to be that membership is a long term commitment and members have to earn the right to vote because rules are rules…
172 Labour MPs want to remove Jeremy Corbyn as their party leader. The current reason is his alleged poor performance in conducting the Remain campaign.
Among his constant critics are Frank Field (MP for Birkenhead) and John Mann (MP for Bassetlaw).
