The Strange Rebirth of Radical Politics 

by Richard Seymour

Back in June, a political columnist gave a talk in Hastings about recent goings on in parliament. Dozens of people missed it because there was a vitally important Labour Party meeting the same night and, utterly distracted by the run-up to party executive and leadership elections, they didn’t notice until it was too late to change the date. They were gutted to miss the event, and so much more happened in the shadow cabinet in the following weeks that the speaker was invited back in July to discuss what had happened in parliament since June.

A couple of years ago, that entire paragraph could only have been written as part of a highly unlikely fantasy story. British people passionately involved in day-to-day politics? Local constituency party meetings moving to larger venues and still having standing room only? Yep. And our local party chair discharged himself from hospital, so desperate was he not to miss the latest one. And columnist Richard Seymour did indeed pay a second visit to Hastings, and spoke to another crowded room. He’s very much in demand because he’s one of the few political journalists around who knows his stuff but has not taken a highly biased position on the Labour leadership. It was an intriguing evening, focusing largely on understanding the extraordinary list of hurdles set in the path of Corbyn’s team – actually not so much hurdles as attempted killer-traps, set by politicians, the media and those shadowy people who are probably part of PR companies... or is that a conspiracy theory? … and so on. There are a million questions, and Seymour's book is a pretty good way of finding answers to them.

Momentum Hastings, June 2016

The corporate media may be dragging their feet when it comes to giving air-time to the political movement Corbyn is leading but they didn't waste time spotting earning opportunities in it. There were more than a few books about Corbyn and his associates out within weeks of the first leadership election, many of them every bit as misleading as the media coverage and as empty of reasoned analysis, but Seymour's book is actually about politics, about what Momentum is up against, and how they might proceed. Rather than buy the ones about bedsits and ancient girlfriends, go to Spokesman Books for the story of Momentum and the leadership campaign from 2015, and to Seymour for the political background, analysis, and unbiased predictions for 2016 onward.
