One of the early aims of the Labour Movement was international socialism. So if you canâ€™t export British socialism to the World, you can always import the World to Britain; goal effectively achieved.
Another barrier to the Labour Movementâ€™s ambitions for international Socialism was a strong British military. So thatâ€™s another obstacle soon to be removed.
Didnâ€™t anybody else wonder how New Labour sprung up with so little resistance from â€œoldâ€ Labour?
