 David Renton and James Eaden, The Communist Party of Great Britain since 1920
One of the most prominent purveyors of this 'Rule Britannia' brand of Communist history, Nina Fishman, is taken to task with terse but convincing restraint: '… she underestimates the continued influence of the foreign policy concerns of the Soviet state, the Comintern and the British party leadership on the political culture of Communist activists' (pxiv).
Never a mass party, unlike the European comrades, the CPGB in 1920-21 welded together a disparate collection of organisations that were either pessimistically sectarian or triumphalistically over-optimistic, to forge a party that was to be predominant over the left beyond the Labour Party for nearly 70 years.
The problem for the Communist Party was that in arguing for diminished expectations, it was attempting to occupy a political space which was already successfully inhabited by the Labour Party.
