Despite whatever else happens by the time you read this, or indeed during the course, it may seem from history that the Labour party is not much given to looking back with remorse or guilt. The party also seems to espouse internationalism not patriotism. It has historical roots in Marx if not Marxism, Socialism and the Trade Union movement. It has generally chosen to operate within the British parliamentary democracy, but does it still? Plans for a Marxist leadership with disrespect for private property and earnings may once have existed largely within Militant Tendency and the writers of the Socialist Worker paper. However, are they nowadays becoming more acceptable within the party as a whole?
