Socialism in the UK
Election campaign 2017. The UK once again has a chance of a genuine government. Here was the day that the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn launched it’s most ambitios manifesto ever. The atmosphere in Newcastle city centre was electric as members of Momentum gathered for a celebration rally.
Under the current government, the UK is running up massive debts, losing its credibility in the world and having its public services run down. Opponents of the Labour Party say they would drag the country back to the 1970s. Well, if we can once again enjoy the wealth of scientific, social and cultural progress that we had in the 70s, I for one would be happy to endure flares once again.
Later, another historic rally took place when Jeremy Corbyn visited the Sage, gateshead. 10,000 people turned out for that one.
