Chapter Summary

The British Left is unhappy about foreigners, partly because they theorise. The weakness of its complacent pragmatism is doubly revealed when it is confronted simultaneously with questions of theory and questions about foreigners at one and the same time, as it is over the Common Market. The last intention of the founders of the Common Market is to pave the way for a United Socialist States of Europe. Labour leaders should be using the demand for equalisation upwards of welfare benefits in the Treaty of Rome to dramatise the conservative dreariness of our (false) national belief that Britain leads in welfare. We should all be posing the problems of socialism as they would be, rescued from the dead clichés of our national stereotypes. We should have to take seriously brands of European Marxists and brands of European anti-Marxists of whom we had scarcely heard.

Keywords:Common Market; European anti-Marxists; European Marxists; labour leaders; socialism; United Socialist States; welfare benefits
