Red Clydeside: A history of the labour movement in Glasgow 1910-1932
Scottish Workers Republican Party
The Scottish Workers Republican Party was founded by John Maclean in 1923 and advocated an independent Scotland in the form of a communist republic. Although standing in several Glasgow municipal by-elections in 1923, the party was weak in Glasgow and effectively non-existent outside the city. Maclean's advocacy of an independent Scotland in the form of a communist republic found little support amongst the working classes in Glasgow.
