David Walters writes, about the SWP, >>Fortunately, the actual number of
workers to be fooled into joining such a cult is very, very small.<< 

A question: perhaps Fred or someone else knows the answer to it. Did the
SWP over the past quarter century recruit even a tiny layer of people of
*working class* origins? 

As to the class moving to center stage, that's old hat. Now there's been
a "sea change" in working class politics, what with imperialism having
lost the cold war and all. 

David says, "One cannot be a member of the SWP and not be 'in a union
fraction of the party's choosing.' Is the material in the (internal)
quotation marks from some party text? 

Don't know if there are any (other) Babylon 5 fans out there in Marxmail
Land, it reminds me of the psy-corps: "the corps is mother, the corps is
father...".
