Over the last 40 years we have had two periods of Tory rule; one was Thatcher and Major’s period in office from 1979 to 1997. But there was another period between 1970 and February 1974 when Ted Heath was installed in Downing Street. The Tory attempts to attack the working class and attack the workers’ organisations rebounded badly then. Should Labour lose the next election, it’s clear that an incoming Tory government would be a government of crisis. An industrial and, at a later stage, a political response to their attacks from the working class would be on the cards.
