John McDonnell has called Marxism ‘a force for change today’ and one of the biggest influences on Jeremy Corbyn‘s Labour Party.

The Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer gave a strident defence of Marxism at an event in London to commemorate 200 years since Karl Marx’s birth.

Mr McDonnell called Britain’s capitalist system ‘crisis-ridden’ and people were flocking to Marxist ideology as an alternative.

‘There’s a significant revival of the question who really owns our society,’ he said at the Marx 200 conference held at SOAS University of London on Saturday.

The 66-year-old then flagged a government takeover of private infrastructure and services under a Corbyn Labour government, according to people in the audience.
