  1. Interestingly, in February 2014 Messrs Max Shanly (unemployed) and Alex Halligan (trade union official) set up a Company Limited by Guarantee under the name ‘Red Labour’.

    It has Specific Objects:

    Red Labour shall educate, agitate and organise within all sections of the labour movement in Britain to help bring about a fundamental and irreversible shift in the balance of wealth and power in favour of working people and their families.

    The registered office appears to be Mr Shanly’s family home in proletarian Epsom, comfortably close to the railway station for when the train arrives from Finland.

  2. From their web-thingy:

    Jeremy Corbyn for Labour Leader has transformed into Momentum – a network of people and organisations that will continue the energy and enthusiasm of Jeremy’s campaign.

    Surely they mean Inertia?

    I’m working [so is Mrs 77 & #1 son (full-time), #2 son (part-time while doing a part-time post-grad course)] – Max Shanly is not (nor is Mr Halligan for any reasonable meaning of “work”).
    So will Red Labour agitate for a permanent and irreversible shift of wealth and power from Max Shanly to me and my family?
    Oh, was that the wrong question?

    Ah, but OBJECTIVELY Mr Max Hand-Shandly is a Proletarian, groaning under the yoke of his totalitarian parents and obliged to vacate his bed at the crack of noon, whereas your line of work is so blatantly and obscenely PETIT-BOURGEOIS!
