"it is precisely the surging forward of demands by trade unionists for real control over the decisions affecting their livelihood that will be the departure point for socialists...Workers' control on an international scale is clearly an alternative to nationalism"

Gordon Brown on the current strike by members of the Communication Workers Union, 2007.
