Clause IV setback for Blair

BY PATRICIA WYNN DAVIES

Words on a new Clause IV : LETTERS

THERE IS a profound difference between Clause IV of the Labour Party, politically comprising Parts 5 and 4, and the new Clause IV as put forward by Brian Wilson MP in the Independent on Sunday. The existing Clause IV says that Labour is looking to achieve things that will arise from common ownership, which itself will be the result of a liberalisation of society. In a word, Labour looks to socialism. The new Clause IV says that socialism may never be achieved, but that, requiring more and more governmental arrangements, Labour will try to bring about as much improvement as possible. In other words, what in four elections the British people have said they will not vote for.

A clause for our times Labour MP Brian Wilson on the words he would choose to define his party's value s

AFTER SMITH / 3: Labour's lost leader: A Scot who kept faith with his roots, says Brian Wilson

I HAVE known John Smith's name since I was old enough to hear politics talked of, in the days when I was a Dunoon schoolboy and he was a bright young socialist fresh out of Glasgow University. His career since then spoke of great achievement, but perhaps a greater achievement still was that, spiritually, he had never moved an inch from the roots which we happened to share.
