Editorial: Freeze, Dole and Productivity Bargains

dec 67

 

Since coming to office, the Labour Government has been feeling its way in relationship to organised labour. It called the bluff of first the Labour Party Conference, then the TUC, then the Parliamentary Labour Party. Last year, when Wilson addressed the TUC, he spoke over its head to the bankers and to Washington. In doing so with impunity, he demonstrated that the TUC was a paper tiger – it could not, in the final analysis, call out its members on strike to demonstrate its power.

 

Editorial: The Communist Party

dec 67

 

Despite belief, the Government continues to declare particularly resistant workers Communist whenever it suits its purpose. This should be of less note than the Communist Party’s reaction to such accusations – self-righteous indignation that so grave a libel should be perpetrated. The response contrasts with the Party’s now very distant Bolshevik past.

 

Constance Lever: A Tenants’ Notebook

31

dec 67

 

The struggle of tenants, private and Council, against high rents, overcrowding, damp, rats, harassment, eviction and bureaucratic tyranny, are among the least documented parts of the class struggle. We make here, we hope, a tentative but useful contribution on some of the many current campaigns by tenants – a collection of short reports on tenant activity from various parts of the country.

 

Peter Sedgwick: Tragedy of the Tragedian: An appreciation of Isaac Deutscher

31

dec 67

 

The sudden death of Isaac Deutscher on 19 August last tore a deep, for some an unexpectedly deep, wound in the hearts of all of us who prize Marxist thought and practice. Until we lost Deutscher, we did not know what we owed him; while he was alive, the forbidding armoury of his scholarship and his international rank shielded, not only him from us but us from him.

 

Letter to Readers

dec 67

 

The tempo of events in Britain has risen sharply over the past year as the effects of simultaneous incomes freeze and general price increases threaten to reduce the real standard of living from both ends. The scattered opposition to this double threat has, for the first time for a long time, made it possible for socialists to be directly useful in the fragmentary resistance. Two areas in particular have been important. First, some of the industrial disputes of the past year – from the battle at ENV to the dockers and to Myton’s Barbican site. Second, the campaign against rent increases.

 

Jim Kincaid: Welfare: Means ... and Ends

31

dec 67

 

In the current debate about social security the terms of the argument have been narrowed to exclude all but two alternative policies: either a continuation of the present universalist Beveridge system in which flat-rate benefits are financed mainly by flat-rate contributions; or the means-tested selectivity advocated by the Conservative Party, and now by some Labour leaders. Mr Gunter has given fresh currency to the second half of an old phrase —’... to each according to his needs.’

 

Joyce Rosser + Colin Barker: A Working-Class Defeat: The ENV Story

31

dec 67

 

The initial emergence of ENV as a militant factory seems to have taken place in the period after the War, and particularly in the latter years of the Labour Government. In the context of a Government wage freeze, supported by the great majority of union executives, shop-floor action in support of local wage claims gradually developed.

 

Roberto Vitale: The Italian Left: A Report

31

dec 67

 

The real question behind the debate within the Italian Communist Party (PCI) in 1961-2 was not whether to break with the anti-working class, reformist essence of Stalinism but whether or not it was necessary to abandon the old language and rigid bureaucratic style of politics imposed upon the PCI by Stalinism.

The Unfinished Revolution, Isaac Deutscher, Oxford, 25s

Isaac Deutscher was a great historian. Unfortunately this achievement was not carried through to analysis and interpretation of current events. Yet one fears that it is to the latter rather than the former that much of his present popularity is due.

South Wales Miners, R. Page Arnot, Allen & Unwin, 60s

It took the struggles of fifty years before trade unionism became firmly established in the South Wales coal industry. First, in the 1830s, there was ‘Scotch cattle,’ so named because of the symbol left behind by hooded miners who destroyed pits and the homes of blacklegs.

Africa in Social Change, P.C. Lloyd, Penguin, 7s 6d

To specialists familiar with the rapidly growing body of literature dealing with aspects of social change in Africa Dr Lloyd’s book, while saying little that it new, serves as a useful synthesis of work relating to the pressures and processes of modernisation.
