Socialist Organiser was a weekly socialist newspaper circulated in the British Labour Party.
The newspaper was founded by the 1979 Socialist Campaign for a Labour Victory, which was renamed the Socialist Organiser Alliance.

Socialist thinkers suggested that the working class should take over the existing capitalist state, turning it into a workers revolutionary state, which would put in place the democratic structures necessary, and then "wither away".
However, counterrevolution, civil war, foreign interventions and the failure of a socialist revolution in Germany and in the other western countries gave Joseph Stalin the opportunity to take over power when Lenin died.

Writing in Socialist Worker in the run-up to the 2001 general election, John Rees notes that “the break-up of Labour’s base is at a very early stage, but it’s happening”, that “the success of the Socialist Alliances is part of a wider recovery in the movement.
The Socialist Alliance is of course not a united front in any commonly-accepted sense of the term, it is a transitional political form on the road to a party which may or may not come into existence.
What these organisations are capable of (in principle, but there is no guarantee that they will be in practice) is to make, because of what they represent in their respective countries, a decisive contribution to the creation of such parties, which would also involve them changing themselves, divesting themselves of outmoded ideological and organisational conceptions.

 Weekly Worker 440 Thursday July 11 2002
The three speakers - non-aligned Socialist Alliance stalwart Dave Osler, Marcus Ström of the CPGB and Chris Jones of the RDG - along with the majority of contributors to the debate, agreed that an unofficial SA paper would be a good thing, although there were some significant differences.
The strongest, most organised proponents of the project - and that must mean the AWL and CPGB - should take the lead in producing a paper to regalvanise the alliance, to give direction and debate differences.
Comrade Ström suggested that we should consider publishing a pilot issue for the SA conference on the euro in October, and called for a Socialist Alliance paper to be made a central issue at the SA AGM in February.

 Joseph Lane
The second organisation was the English Section of the Social Democratic Club, which was formed by Kitz in 1877 to link native radicals and foreign (mainly German) socialists living in exile in London, and which acquired its own premises in Rose Street.
It continued to exist as the Homerton Socialist Club, and Lane was one of its two signatories to the Manifesto to the Working Men of the World, an unsuccessful appeal for the re-establishment of the International Working Men's Association which was issued by the London socialist organisations in July 1883.
The Socialist League was itself yet another coalition, united at first mainly by hostility to Hyndman, and it soon developed parliamentarist and antiparliamentarist fractions, "which are pretty commensurate with the Collectivists and Anarchists", said Morris, who tried to hold the balance between them.

In Socialist Organiser of March 1979 Livingstone wrote: "The left has given no thought to the impending Greater London Council elections… those who have a commitment to a socialist GLC need to start organising now." Over the next two years he drew a lot of activists into that project.
The revolutionary left - the political current manifested in the Socialist Alliance coalition, with all its errors and follies which this magazine so often criticises - is still as alive and forceful in constructive activity as in 1979-81, while the "GLC left" died so quickly, for exactly those reasons.

 TROTSKYITE SPY PETER RUSHTON
The Healy faction, known in the 1950s as The Club, grew in strength and influence, initially through its association with mainstream Labour leftwingers who were witch-hunted on an epic scale by the right-wing Labour leadership, and later through the recruitment of disillusioned Stalinists.
This faction, which later became the International Socialists, and later still the Socialist Workers Party (SWP), was most distinctive for its hardline condemnation of Soviet Communism as "state capitalism", and this analysis was the main reason for the split from Healy.
Socialist Organiser's greatest success had been in student politics, through SSIN - Socialist Students in NOLS - NOLS being the right-wing dominated Labour Party student organization and SSIN being, for a while, the main left opposition.

It is widely recalled that in the early 1980s the enfeebled Labour Party was the target of systematic infiltration and disruption by Trotskyite organisations, notably the Militant tendency.
The IMG - changing its name to the Socialist League - had decided at the end of 1982 to infiltrate the Labour Party, and sought thereafter to become the dominant force in Labour CND and Youth CND.
The leadership of CND at least realised that the organisation was being subjected to a concerted campaign of Trotskyite entrism.
