ABSTRACT
The article presents reasons for which Paul Johnson, former editor of the magazine "New Statesman," has also quit the British Labour Party. Johnson said that he joined the party when it advocated for freedom and individuality. But the party took some wrong decisions in the year 1969. The government of English Prime Minister Harold Wilson was under pressure by the power of trade unions. Wilson's labor reform bill was opposed by the Trade Union Congress. Johnson believes that Wilson once had liberal roots. The Party began to encourage collectivism. Workers and even artists and playwrights were force to form trade unions.
