Any thoughts, readers? For myself, I actually think they were right to kick out Hoveman and the other Galloway groupies. However it also seems to me that they’re trying to shut the stable door after the horse has bolted. Possibly we’re witnessing the collapse of the last of the “big three” trot groups from the 1970s and 80s, following the explosion of the WRP and the implosion of Militant. Also one wonders whether the rats are about to leave the sinking ship in light of the crisis. This thread’s open – feel free to comment if you wish.
