Cyril Smith was a leading member of the Healyite Workers Revolutionary
Party, which as the above quote points out "exploded in 1985". According
to an exchange some time ago in alt.politics.socialism.trotsky he has
allegedly now adopted a critical attitude towards Marxism, but this may
be simply sectarian hearsay.
