"...the French events suddenly brought home to me the reality of socialist revolution and how we had entered a new stormy period, which the tendency had predicted. Within a couple of years, the Labour government had fallen and Britain entered a convulsive period including a near general strike.

Without doubt, 1968 will be forever remembered as a political turning point by all those who were touched by those historic events. That was certainly my experience."
