Simon Hannah author of ” A Party with Socialists in it – History of the Labour Left” will be discussing his book at our first book club meeting on Thur 30th January, 7-9pm at:
St Johns Church Stratford E15 1NG
Simon looks at the history of the British Labour Party, uncovering its deep internal divisions and shifting positions in politics.
For over a hundred years, the British Labour Party has been a bastion for working class organisation and struggle. However, has it ever truly been on the side of the workers? Where do its interests really lie? And can we rely on it to provide a barrier against right-wing forces? By looking into its history, this book shines a light on the internal dynamics of the ‘party with socialists in it’
The book is available at Newham Bookshop or available online from the publisher Pluto Books
