Muriel Browning

On trial – for selling Militant

(March 1986)

From Militant, No. 788, 7 March 1986, p. 4.
Transcribed by Iain Dalton.
Marked up by Einde O’Callaghan for the Encyclopaedia of Trotskyism On-Line (ETOL).

ON FRIDAY 21 February Llanelli GMC voted by 22 votes to 17 with four abstentions, to expel “member of Militant” from the Labour Party and prohibit the sale of the paper in Llanelli.

When NUR delegate, Wayne Saunders, asked what a “Militant member” was no one was prepared to answer. Saunders went on:

“Last year I was sacked for fighting for my job, one of the few workers to suffer this in a nationalised industry. That shows my commitment to the Labour movement. I don’t expect to come to a Labour Party meeting to be put on trial for selling and supporting a socialist newspaper.”
