SWP National Council Debate

It looks like there were some interesting goings-on at a recent SWP national council. Two very similar motions were debated, one put forward by the Central Committee, one by John “Sheriff of Nottingham” Rees. Was it really about no platform, or about something else? You decide.

Rees’ motion was signed by 65 members of the SWP.

    Totally OT, but Volty, when I come onto the site the side bar has gone black and all the links have shifted to the bottom of the screen. Now I’m doing this comment it looks normal. Is this the curse of the Cannibal Rabbi? (May he eat himself).

  2. voltairespriest said,

    I’ve seen that too and I’m really not sure.

    Mind you, he’s clearly nuts so maybe the effect is viral…

  3. Rosie said,

    It’s fixed now. I did a counter-curse. Now I have to sweep up the chicken feathers and wipe away the blood.

  4. Voltaire's Priest said,

    What’s more, the anti-semitic little fuckhead seems to have disappeared. So much the better!

    “The anti-semitic little fuckhead”: that’s no way to talk about comrade Rees, Volty!

    Never knew he was both a cannibal and a rabbi! There again…
