The LAS got 2.9%
SLP got 1%
Tatchell got 1%

Together this represents the possibility of a Party to the Left of Labour.
As regards Livingstone, Yes He is an opportunist, but only the far left
knows this. The majority of socialists think he represents  an alternative
to Blairism.

The LAS represents the only way at the moment, the failure of Scargill to
rise above sectarianism and build anything bigger than a cult around
himself leaves the Socialist Alliances as the only show in town
The Scottish Socialist Party is independent of Militant as those familar
with it would know. Tha reality is that Militant are unhappy with Sheridan
and co.

A great pity that Paul Foot did not win a seat.Hopefully the SWP will
drasw a non sectarian lesson and continue to do this sort of alliance.
Hopefully the Socialist Party will do likewise.
