Labouring in Vain
Here's the intro to an excellent pamphlet written by Subversion, the Manchester based council communist group, that attempts to debunk the myth of the Labour Party as a socialist party that acts in the interest of the workers.
This pamphlet was originally published by Subversion before the advent of New Labour. It made a number of predictions as to the course that the Labour Party would take which have be proved incorrect by events. Nevertheless, it contains useful insights into the formation of the Labour Party and effectively counters many of the claims for Labour having once been a working class, socialist party.
