Kick Their Cunts in Say Some.
In Glasgow, Saturday, faced with protests against the SWP,
… something happened at the Glasgow Anti Bedroom Tax demo yesterday, and it needs to be talked about. It happened because a rape apologist was invited to speak on the platform. Dave Sherry was invited to speak in his capacity as UNITE Scottish Federation of Housing Associations branch secretary, but one of his other roles is as a member of the Disputes Committee of the SWP which it has emerged has delivered a “not proved” verdict in the case of senior party member Martin Smith raping a teenage member of the party.

He continued, “Now the curtain-twitcher’s finger is being wagged at the SWP – and it has no answers at all.”
The CPGB (Provisional Central Committee Planet Venus and Mars Sectors, Tendency 3), went on to say,
“The succesful campaign of cde. Jerry Hicks for Presidency of the The United Federation of Planets, is the way forward.
As the Weekly Worker merges with SW and we become a daily, our ”very style of politics practised by the SWP” becomes a breath of fresh air to all species.
Our ongoing negotiations with our Klingon Empire comrades show the potential is there.
Onwards and Upwards!”
