 Socialist Labour Party (UK) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The party was formed as a left-wing splinter in reaction to Tony Blair's re-positioning of the British Labour Party.
The party seems to be on the wane electorally, garnering fewer votes than it used to, although it did manage to get its highest percentage share in any individual parliamentary constituency at the 2005 general election when they took 14.2% of the votes cast in Glasgow North East.
However, the absence of a Labour Party candidate in Glasgow North East (following the convention that the main parties do not stand against a sitting Speaker of the House of Commons) where Michael Martin was re-standing, was a probably a major factor in achieving 14.2% of the vote.

 On Scargill's call for a Socialist Labour Party
It was stressed that the rapid right wing political degeneration of the Labour Party and the decision of its leader, Tony Blair, to ditch the 77 year old reformist Clause IV from its constitution could not be approached simply from the standpoint of the actions of "bad individuals".
The reformist Labour Party and trade union organisations were built by the working class at the beginning of the century to fight for and defend these hard won social gains from the capitalist class.
In fact the ILP was not isolated because of its split from the Labour Party, but because it rejected the call to join the Left Opposition and the Fourth International and orient to the working class on the international socialist perspective and a revolutionary socialist programme in a struggle against social democracy and Stalinism.

 A LEFT CRITIQUE OF THE SOCIALIST LABOUR PARTY
However, whether or not a party is really a political party of the workers does not depend solely upon a membership of workers but also upon the men that lead it, and the content of its actions and its political tactics.
Regarded from this, the only correct, point of view, the Labour Party is a thoroughly bourgeois party because, although made up of workers, it is led by reactionaries, and the worst kind of reactionaries at that, who act in the spirit of the bourgeoisie.
Labour's social base amongst the more affluent sections of the working class, and in certain sections of the middle class, would in itself be far too narrow an electoral base to enable it to become a significant parliamentary force in the post-war world.
