The moves to realign Labour’s foreign policy after Corbyn reveal exactly what the political centre means by ‘internationalism’ – liberal values advanced at the point of a cruise missile.
The failure of Corbynism was its inability to cut through in working-class communities. The risk of a Starmer-led Labour Party is that it abandons that effort altogether.
To understand December’s loss, socialists should look beyond the ‘Brexit or Corbyn’ binary to deeper problems facing the labour movement which can’t be solved by charting a course towards the centre, argues Andrew Murray.
The media treats Corbyn’s emergence as an anomaly. In fact, it is the product of decades of failed economic policies.
