Alan Woods – editor of In Defence of Marxism – analyses last week’s UK election results, explaining the real reasons behind Labour’s dramatic defeat.
In his latest talk, Alan answers the lies of the establishment media and the Blairites, who have falsely attempted to place all the blame for Labour’s recent election loss on Jeremy Corbyn.
In reality, however, it is not Corbynism that has failed, but Blairism, liberalism, and the centre ground. The areas that have abandoned Labour are those that have been left behind by capitalism; those that voted Leave as a rejected of the broken status quo.
It is vital to learn the lessons of this election defeat. But Labour activists must now regroup to kick the right-wingers and careerists out of the PLP, to fight Boris Johnson and the Tories, and to continue the struggle for socialism.
