Overview

Leo McKinstry sprang to prominence earlier this year when he wrote his resignation letter from the Labour Party in the form of an article in the Conservative magazine the "Spectator". In this book, the former Labour Party researcher and Islington councillor, expands his article into an examination of the claims of Tony Blair's Labour Party to be ready to form the next British government. His doubts are based on his insider's knowledge of the Parliamentary Labour Party and of Labour's record in local government. How sincere are the claims that this new Labour Party is free from socialist dogma and the politics of spite? Will the party activists really accept responsible spending policies? Will the Unions meekly accept a major reduction of their powers? Will Labour make Britain a mere province of a federal Europe? Will Britain under Blair be like a large-scale version of one of Labour's local governments, with wastefulness and incompetence and an absurd thraldom to political correctness?
