Socialist Renewal 1:8



By Royden J. Harrison

My first purpose in this pamphlet is to demonstrate that when it comes to a way with words Mr Tony Blair is more than a match for Humpty Dumpty. It will be recalled that Humpty Dumpty announced: �When I use a word � it means just what I choose it to mean � neither more nor less�. When Mr Blair says �advance� he means �retreat�. This pamphlet concludes that there are indeed new conditions which have to be recognised. But these conditions require Labour, not to go back on its traditional commitments, but to go beyond them.
