SOCIALISM in the UK took a big knock on the night of December 12, 2019, as the exit poll at the general election spelled disaster for Corbyn’s Labour Party.
Under the left wing leader, the Labour Party endured its worst defeat since 1935 – a point which many on the right have the party say proved the futility to moving the party to a more radical position.
Since then, many socialists have stayed in the party – but others who are disillusioned with Keir Starmer have found other avenues to pursue left wing ambitions.
The Northern Independence Party, for example, has made waves on social media – advocating for an independent north of England and democratic socialism.
At the time, Redaction Report spoke to their candidate Carla Gregory about how she got involved in socialist politics and why she was standing for election with Breakthrough.
She scored 197 votes in the poll, coming sixth out of eight candidates.
Next week, Redaction Report will feature a new discussion with the Breakthrough Party on our YouTube channel – to talk about what the future of socialism in Britain will be and what the party aims to achieve.
