Social Democracy – the Enemy Within

£10.00

One of the assertions – an assertion which has acquired the force of a public prejudice – made not only by the left generally, but also, with some honourable exceptions, by that part of it which calls itself communist, is that the Labour party is a party of the British working class, which can be an instrument of socialism in Britain.

The purpose of this book is to demonstrate the utter fallacy of this assertion and, on the contrary to prove that Labour, throughout its existence, has been an imperialist party – a “bourgeois labour party”, to use Engels’ remarkably profound expression – that it has never championed the interests of the vast masses of the British proletariat, that it has always defended the interests of British imperialism and that of the privileged sections of the working class.
