Socialism Today 110 - June 2007


The coronation of Gordon Brown

The long wait is nearly over. Tony Blair is leaving and it will be good to see him go.

PETER TAAFFE writes on the significance of the transition.

Has France moved to the right?

The crowning of right-wing president Nicolas Sarkozy was greeted by George Bush and Tony Blair. French workers, young people, and those in the sprawling, run-down suburbs, on the other hand, are bracing themselves for severe attacks on living and working conditions. KARL DEBBAUT assesses the result and its implications.
