Breaking News - Longstanding Labour Party supporter and Barking and Dagenham Councillor, Jim McDermott defects to the SLP .
The Socialist Labour Party are delighted to welcome to our ranks the former Labour Party councillor for Barking and Dagenham, Jim McDermott. Jim has bluntly stated that the Labour Party no longer represents ordinary people. In fact we are well aware that it only acts in the interests of the less than one per cent and is intent on heaping even more misery and unnecessary austerity upon the British working class.
The Socialist Labour Party - An Introduction
The Socialist Labour Party was launched at its first congress on 1 May 1996. It was initiated by leading trade unionists and campaign activists following the final abandonment by Tony Blair's New Labour of any commitment to progressive change for socialism in Britain. However, the Party represents far more than just a reaction to developments in the Labour Party. The SLP aims to build on the heritage of all the movements of resistance to the free-market offensive in Britain over the past two decades. In particular, it is the political heir of the year-long miner's strike of 1984-5 and the tremendous movement of solidarity it inspired in all sections of British society.
