I don't think that the DSP being 'superLeninist' is the problem here.  The
mistake they have made is independent of this.

People should be careful of Gary's view of the DSP.  He tends to project
the behaviour of other parties on to it, interpreting it as if it was the
International Socialists, Gary's other former party, or some other weird
sect.   This isn't particularly useful or accurate.
