I wish to make it clear that my criticism of Labour men in these pages is not to be taken as a reflection upon their private. lives and conduct. I have discussed solely their public and political actions.
E. H. Lane
Dedicated to all those Comrades who, despite all costs, disillusionments, and betrayals – “in storm or stress or calm” – have never faltered in the fight, but have ever held aloft the red flag of Working Class Emancipation and pressed forward towards Freedom’s goal.
