FILM-MAKER Ken Loach has lent his voice in support of a campaign to restore Labour's commitment to end capitalism.
The campaign wants to restore Clause 4 to Labour's constitution. The principle was adopted in 1918 but ditched by Tony Blair in 1995 to suit his New Labour aims.
Labour 4 Clause 4 believes that the party has been transformed under Jeremy Corbyn's leadership and it is time to "bring back bold socialist policies," meaning "a fundamental and irreversible shift in the balance of wealth and power in favour of working people and their families."
The campaign supports nationalisation of key profitable sectors such as utilities and railways and wants nationalised industries run under workers' control and management.
The campaign says: "We must learn the lessons of past Labour governments. You cannot plan what you do not control. And you do not control what you do not own."
Campaign supporters include Labour MPs, among them veteran Dennis Skinner, and trade unionists.
