Breakthrough Party Breaks Up.

with 2 comments

The Breakthrough Party, founded in January 2021, is one of the left-wing micro-parties that have been formed in recent years, a list which includes the Nippers (NIP, Northern Independence Party), Chris Williamson’s (elusive) Resistance Movement, and joins older organisations such as Left Unity, the Communist Party of Britain, and the Socialist Party led Trade Union and Socialist Coalition in the list of groups who have stood candidates against the Labour Party in elections. * Breakthrough has a number of councillors, 8 – defectors from Labour – at a District, Town and Parish level.

The ideas of the Breakthrough Party are mainstream democratic socialist. They are part of the wider left and labour movement, although organised separately they have limited reach and influence.

Wikipedia entry (not up to date).

This is frankly odd:

*The George Galloway led Workers Party of Britain is widely regarded as ‘red-brown’ and not left wing.

  2. So the Poundshop John Bull has ordered that the National Anthem must be sung at party conference.
    Paul Mason wont mind. He’ll be singing God Save the King with the best of them.
