Since the Labour Party's foundation, effective power has rested with a small elite: the Leader, the Parliamentary Labour Party and those who head the major trade unions. The outcome has been a pragmatic programme and three major periods of election success. There have been achievements, but none significant enough to make Labour the natural party of power.On a few occasions the collective voice of the membership has determined policy. The surprising election of Jeremy Corbyn looks like being one of them. The author welcomes this change but admits the outcome remains uncertain. For those who want to understand if the Labour Party has a future, this challenging historic analysis is an essential read.David Brandon is the author of twenty published historical books. This is his second with a political theme. A Labour Party activists for 40 years, he was employed by a major trade union to train shop stewards and workplace representatives.
