Wearing jeans and sandals under his formal robe, Jobs addressed a crowd of 23, with a short speech that drew lessons from his life. About a third of the way into the address, Jobs offered the following advice:
You start with far-fetched resolutions.
They are then pickled into a rigid dogma, a code, and you go through the years sticking to that, out-dated, mis-placed, irrelevant to the real needs, and you end in the grotesque chaos of a Labour council — a Labour council - hiring taxis to scuttle round a city handing out redundancy notices to its own workers".
The extract above, was widely replayed on television then and since. All this was just one part of a speech worth examining in full, for these passages do have a place in the overall scheme. After the opening formalities Kinnock launches a full-throated attack on the Tory government.
This theme is - in various ways - sustained across the speech. In the middle of the speech there are some extremely interesting passages on the theme of change. What is so interesting here is that these themes of change and adaptation would become the governing centre of Blairism a decade later.
These passages, then, coming out of the establishment of a gap between appearance and reality, urge on the Labour Party, an acceptance of - and an adaptation to - the reality of social and economic change. This in turn paves the way for the critique of militant as unrealistic, rooted in own self-obsession.
There is much more that could be said about this speech and its reception. But we will make only one further point. That is their due. We have voluntarily, every one of us, joined a political party.
We wish a lot more people would come and join us, help us, give us their counsel, their energies, their advice, broaden our participation.
But in making the choice to join a political party we took a decision, and it was that, by persuasion, we hoped that we could bring more people with us. The fusing of reason with persuasion a fusion catalysed by passion and beliefwith the goal of bringing about voluntary and conscious belief, the basis of meaningful consent: For recognising that, this website has no hesitation in considering Kinnock to be one of the great orators of British Politics.
Comrades, Alan, I think you must be all Welsh to give a welcome like that. Laughter But wherever you come from, I do thank you and I think movement, the country, will have got that message that you gave them there and then very loud and very clear.
There is no mistaking that. Applause Comrades, before I present my parliamentary report this year, I want to mark the fact that at this Conference we see the retirement of an unusual number of our senior comrades in the trade union movement and also, of course, we have seen this year the retirement of our General Secretary, Jim Mortimer.
I want to take this opportunity of paying tribute to all of those people, together with those who are perhaps not so distinguished, for their lifetime of service to this working class movement. Applause Today, however, we learn with deep sadness that one of those retired friends died this morning.page NOTES Marx's Critique of the Gotha Programme is one of the most important contributions to the development of the theory of scientific communism and an example of uncompromising struggle against opportunism.
