Well, it's not a crime.
But it is a mistake, as I outlined in the rest of that message.

The SLP is right to break with Labour. My criticism is that they
have only broken organisationally, but not politically.

Incidentally, as Will Brown reports , the SLP has won over a majority
of the RMT ( the rail union ) executive ( or at least that's what
I read in the Guardian ). This is their first significant breakthrough.
