How One SWP Cadre Operates.

with 10 comments

“Andy, this will be my only reply to you as I don’t make the effort to read your vile,nasty little rants against the SWP which pale into insignificance next to your filthy,spiteful and cowardly poison vis-a vis Islam.

If Unite the Resistance is a SWP front ( true we are the engine within it) what of Suffolk Coalition for Public Services ( which i support)? Who pulls the strings? Provides the leadership? The Trades Council does and who controls the Trades Council? There are many fantastic delegates to the Trades Council but the dominant person is a member of the Socialist Party and the TC itself has been little more than the industrial wing of the SP/Militant for 20 years.

You yourself are imbued with sectarian politics – you spoke at the TC before the first UTR meeting and said that the TC should have nothing to do with it as it is an SWP front.In other words unless you and Teresa McKay control something you are not willing to work with others.Narrow,minded conservative politics that you both espouse are the reason why UTR exists.

Your hatred of the SWP is well know.Sorry, but the SWP in Ipswich is here to stay. Soak it up or crack up.”

John Curtis SWP

These comments on this Blog demonstrate exactly what many people have always thought about you John.

This of course was the man calling for ‘unity’ with the narrow-minded conservative ‘string pullers’ and ‘poison’ spreaders a little while ago (actually in person he’s said a lot more in the same vein, including towards members of the Labour Party).

The Trades Council is very far from being a ‘front’ for anything but trade unions.

  4. I’d say Trouty that this is the clearest and best summary of the current state of the SWP that I’ve seen.

    Recommended especially to anybody who doesn’t want to plough through the usual reams of material about such things.

  6. Anyone who thought up “Don’t Organise – Moan! ” has no need to, er, go red, no that’s not the word…

  7. Andrew, the idea that you lot have a mole in the local Tory party is the only thing more ridiculous than the notion that Therese Mackay and you are conservative.

  8. Don’t know much about history, Marxism’s still a mystery Don’t know the line that Lenin took, cos I’ve only read Tony Cliff’s book. But I do know, if we pass an enabling Act, we could support a non-aggression pact, and what a wonderful world it would be ….. (…to the tune of Sam Cooke’s “Wonderful World”)

    Communist Students song from the 80s, try it the words work to the tune!

  10. Believe me it saves you having to spend five minutes with a SWP ‘cadre’ with, how shall we put it, ‘issues’.
