Well, this is as clear an example as ever I have seen of the crisis of
leadership in the word processing community.  Any WP worth its salt
would know that the correct reformulation is "The SWP is the revo-
lutionary continuity of Lenin's Boshevik Party."

You should see if you can get a copy Barnes95.  It updates a lot of
the errors found in the old SWP software back when they were still
working with the Trotsky API.
