Fuck the politics let’s go straight to arguing about the name…
No boring names like ‘trade union and socialist coalition’ or ‘international working class association’ for fuck sake….something with a bit of zap and zing……….like THE RED FRONT…….it didn’t make much headway last time….
‘Its main component was the Revolutionary Communist Party of Frank Furedi, while it also attracted the support of the tiny Revolutionary Democratic Group, Red Action and a few independents. The RCP were hugely optimistic about its potential and spoke of it in time replacing the Labour Party as the main left wing force in British politics. However, its candidates shared only 3,177 votes in total and as a result was abandoned shortly after the election’
….but that was clearly the fault of the RCP for not dressing smarter.It was also the name adopted by proletarian communists who fought the Nazis in the 1920s so will appeal to those squaddists still pining for Red Action…….who supported the RED FRONT in 1987. Riding a wave of nostalgia we will probably get REAL OLD LABOUR or somesuch….how about the NYE WOULD BE TURNING IN HIS GRAVE PARTY?
Sorted.RED FRONT IT IS. Now about that political programme….
