    Another piece from the Anarchist Media Project, and it’s important. The origins of the Labour party lie in the ‘Lib-Labs’, working-class union men, who entered parliament as Liberals at the end of the 19th century. The Labour party was formed with the explicit intention of focussing political attention on the working class and their problems. Since the 1960s, however, the number of working class members of the Labour party has declined to the point where, even in the 1970s, books were written arguing that the Labour party leadership secretly feared and despised the working class. This is very much a vital issue. Tony Blair shifted the party to the Right, embracing privatisation, threatening to cut ties with the unions and stating that he aimed to make Labour more business friendly. David Milliband seems to wish to carry on this process. He has said of his amendments to the unions’ vote in the Labour party that he wants the party to embrace the middle classes. Now I don’t have a problem with Labour appealing to liberal members of the middle classes at all. I do, however, have a problem with this being done at the expense of the working class, the very people that the Labour party was formed to represent.
