Actually, Dennis Neilson was a contact for both Militant and the SWP; but it means nothing.

 

 

 

 

Ray’s selective memory is a revelation, Neilson’s affiliation to the party was well known in the SWP when I was a member, and membbers used to joke about the comrade who had to bring him round his paper popping in for a cuppa.

  1. For the life of me Andrew I can’t understand the link to the Socialist Unity ost of so many years ago. At the time it was run by a very strange individual called Andy Newman who seems to have disappeared leaving the control of the sometimes functioning site to The Morning Star and some unreconstructed Stalinists.

    As far as I can see the only link between Nilson and SU is that all are very disturbed individuals in need of some form of treatment. Can you enlighten us at all?

  2. Socialist Unity, of the irony of that name…
    Didn’t Lord Longford visit Nilsen in the 90s and leave him a tape recorder, so he could record his music?
    If so, were his songs ever reviewed in the Socialist Worker?

  3. I remember Yana Mintoff from the Troop out Movement in the 1970s. She was a supporter of the SWP. It was widely known that she was Dom Mintoff’s daughter so I don’t get from where the “deep cover” comes.

  4. I intended to add to the last post that the ” horizontal recrutment” claims are scurrilous, gutter accusations which, hopefully, Coatesy will delete.

  5. The Troops out movement of the 1970s, that was all about getting IRA troops out of NI wasn’t it?
    At those nationalists, pro-capitalist supporters were/are no friend of the working class.

    Although it’s an old article, it does date from around the time of the troops out movement. Not only were they repulsive they have very little to offer the working class.

  7. Post Brexit and a Corbyn administration:

    “Authorities in the UK have seized a plant owned by German cereal manufacturer Kellogg.

    It comes after the firm announced it was pulling out of the country because of the worsening economic situation.

    Prime Minister Jeremy Corbyn, who has previously accused the EU of waging economic war against his government, called the closure “absolutely unconstitutional and illegal”.

    He said the factory had been handed to workers and would continue production.”

  8. In other news:

    “Authorities in the UK have seized shops owned by German ‘discounter’ Aldi.

    It comes after the firm announced it was pulling out of the country because of the worsening economic situation.

    Prime Minister Jeremy Corbyn, who has previously accused the EU of waging economic war against his government, called the closures “absolutely unconstitutional and illegal”.

    He said the shops had been handed to workers and would remain open.”

  9. If you listen to the “lies” of the remainers, post-Brexit, we will all be shopping in Aldi!
    So I can’t imagine why they’d ever leave the UK. You’ve more chance of the Labour party ordering troops to shot workers, than hand anything over to them.

  10. Kellogg’s have just closed their factory in Venuzuela by the way. I heard it on the news this morning.
