The City of London - ie Britain's financial sector. I got the quote from
Hywell Williams from The Guardian as well.

Re the Labour Party - it always was an imperialist party see Robert Clough
Labour: A party fit for imperialism - Larkin Publications 1992 , which
argues the point in great detail. a useful article of his online is Labour
Party 100 years of infamy

Please do not quote Lenin's position, as even his argument re the Labour
Party would have only held until after The General Strike in 1926.
