Parteigenosse Eric Hobsbawm: Still Chained to Communist Slavery
by The Editor
By Dr Frank Ellis - A recent programme of BBC Radio 4’s Archive on 4 was dedicated to the life and works of the Marxist historian, Eric Hobsbawm. One of the striking things to emerge from Simon Schama’s extended interview with Hobsbawm was that the interviewee’s commitment to Marxism had not diminished or even been fundamentally re-evaluated in the light of the final collapse of the Soviet Union and its East European empire in 1985-1991. Hobsbawm even re-affirmed his commitment to Marxism, oblivious or indifferent to the fact that Marxist regimes had slaughtered tens of millions of people in trying to build some global socialist utopia.

By Gregory Lauder-Frost - 'Our task must be to restore Britain, her heritage, her traditions, her glories, her position in the world. It must be to sweep aside the universal Left wherever they appear. We saw in the old Soviet Union and the former Eastern Bloc the final results of full-blown Socialism. Liberalism is an equal cancer. The crusade for our country must continue. What is needed is a Real Tory and traditionalist onslaught for our nation. We must keep talking and not be afraid to do so. We must get our message out there.'
