John Dunn, veteran of the historic miners’ strike and socialist campaigner, introduces a discussion on Britain.
What future does Britain face today? Will Brexit open up new prospects for British capitalism, or does it mark a new stage in its decline? Can the “United Kingdom” of “Great Britain” hold together, or will it disintegrate into separate statelets? Will the monarchy survive the death of the current Queen?
The Johnson government is steeped in corruption and authoritarianism. Is Britain becoming a police state?
Is Britain doomed to follow the path of Spain, which having lost an empire, slowly decayed and fell victim to civil war and fascism?
Can the Labour Party ever again be a force for socialism?
