A deep repentance. Nothing in his life
Became him like the leaving of it.’

A reflection on the recent local elections by one of our students, Christian Turner.
On the 200th anniversary of birth of Karl Marx, Dr David Bates asks: is Marxism dead?
On the 5th May 2018 it will be 200 years since Karl Marx was born. A great deal has happened in 200 years. Russian communism has been and gone. A neo-liberal revolution has occurred through much of the world.
Much has been written about the local elections due to take place on Thursday of this week. Across the country, political parties are deploying their big guns and sending out members to wield clipboards on people’s doorsteps.
