If the Trotskyists are on the march there’s chaos ahead | John Harris

Tom Watson warns the hard left is infiltrating Labour again. I know from personal experience the disruption they’ll cause
Just over 20 years ago, I visited the scene of Leon Trotsky’s murder. I was on holiday in Mexico City; a trip to his former home in the suburb of Coyoacán seemed pretty much obligatory. And there it all was: the study, set up to approximate its state just as the Stalinist…
