I agree - I get the impression Callum McCormick is part of the British
or Irish SWP?  Rather than this rehashing of a 45 odd year old debate
(the rehashing is almost like a ritual at this point, where each
person steps up to the plate and practices formulating old arguments)
I would have been interested to know about the work of this
organization across the ocean.  When I went to Ireland this summer I
met an SWP that had 15 active branches in Dublin (claiming 150 members
or so in that city) and along with the Trotskyist Socialist Party
(descended from the Militant tendency) had a real voice in the
national politics and movements of that country.
