John Harris of the Guardian, quotes Trotsky in order to denounce the “Bolshevism” of the Tory Brexiteers…. “only fools and zealots” would embrace revolution, he says. Well, actually, the Bolsheviks did set out to overturn the capitalist state, which you can’t say about the Tories!
Harris displays a visceral fear and hatred of revolution that is even greater than his dislike of the Tories.
Still, he has a point that May and company are in a deep crisis over Brexit. Now is the time to take advantage of the ruling class’ disarray. But Labour is not pushing its advantage.
