It is ten years since Tony Cliff   died and like him or not, it has to be admitted that he was a major figure in the politics of what is called revolutionary  politics in the last century.   His advocacy of a return to the politics of Marx and Lenin was distinctive,  rejecting the stalinism and trotskyism  of the day.
