From Our Parliamentary Correspondent THE British Labour Movement is a coalition of Constituency Labour Party supporters and members of the Trade Unions and Co-ops. "Socialists" dominate in the Constituency Labour Parties, but many Co-operators and Trade Unionists are also "Socialist". Many, however, are not.
Very many unenthusiastically accept a political alliance formed at a time when widespread poverty bred class hatred and when working-class interests needed to secure representation in a largely unsympathetic House of Commons. Many deliberately "contract out" of the political alliance.
