As I mentioned, it's called discussion. Maybe people will agree with his
approach, and maybe they won't. And so what if they do?

The point is that if discussion is to occur, things like this will be said
occasionally. So what? Or would you rather that all discussion should take
place in private, and only finished documents be made public?

Socialist Alternative has made it clear that they aren't interested in
unity. Why should the DSP cut them any slack?

Actually, I'm beginning to appreciate what Matthews wrote. The Australian
left has been too warm and fuzzy over the last couple of years. Maybe it's
time to break out the machineguns again.  : )
