Is Socialism Possible in Britain? analyses Jeremy Corbyn’s tenure as Labour leader and the prospects for parliamentary socialism in a post-Corbyn Britain. Lively and insightful, it is informed by an insider’s view of the most radical period in Labour’s history. A veteran of the Stop the War Coalition, Andrew Murray was seconded to Corbyn’s office from the Unite trade union and witnessed an extraordinary daily bombardment from sections of the Parliamentary Labour Party and the media.
He candidly assesses the leadership’s response to the antisemitism controversy and the dilemmas of Brexit, as well as Keir Starmer’s restoration of a turgid neo-Blairism. The problems that beset Corbyn are likely to confront any similar political project. Is Socialism Possible in Britain? explores how they can be more effectively addressed in the future – a future which we must hope is not so far away.
