02 February 2007
The Independent Working Class Association
Following on from last night's post, Duncan Money commented that a working class party of the type we advocated already exists. It is called the Independent Working Class Association, and it has four councillors in Oxford.

Looking at the party's manifesto, most of the concerns that working class people have seem to be addressed: this is obviously not a bunch of students out to change the world before going off to earn a packet in the City of London.

The Exile is a bit dubious about their idea of lowering the age of majority to 16, but one can't have everything. By and large the people behind the IWCA come over as sane, sensible and working class: they are out to answer people's real needs, and are not putting themselves forward as the workers' vanguard.
