Cannon joke and is the SSP reformist?

On the SSP and "reformism", the SSP doesn't claim to
be a revolutionary organisation. Its leadership
describes it as a broad socialist party or a militant
socialist party or even a combat socialist party but
never as a revolutionary socialist party. If our
description annoys you John, feel free to ask the ISM
for a better one :-)

On the Cannon jokes, I hadn't heard the other side of
that story and I am glad that Walter posted it. I
think though that events have already spoken on which
side was correct. Bornstein and Richardson's "War and
the International" describes events in detail for
anyone who is interested. In short those who accepted
Cannon's nominal unity split and dwindled, while those
who told him where to go carried out some of the best
work of any Trotskyist organisation during WW2 and
grew many times over.
