Red Front (UK)


Red Front (UK)

Red Front was a socialist electoral coalition which stood candidates in the 1987 UK general election.

Its main component was the Revolutionary Communist Party of Frank Furedi, while it also attracted the support of the tiny Revolutionary Democratic Group, Red Action and a few independents. The RCP were hugely optimistic about its potential and spoke of it in time replacing the Labour Party as the main left wing force in British politics. However, its fourteen candidates shared only 3,177 votes in total and as a result was abandoned shortly after the election.
