I'm still curious. Is this love affair with nuclear power something you 
devleoped on your own or is this a Lambertist orientation mirroring that 
of Frank Furedi's RCP? I have a feeling that it is your own idiosyncrasy 
since I can't find anything about the friendly atom on the Socialist 
Organizer website. I do note that you comrades have nothing about 
ecology there, so I guess there is something going on. Maybe you should 
add some content about the joys of hamburger and smoking. Have you 
considered unity negotiations with Spiked online? That might be a match 
made in heaven.

Who is we? The Socialist Organizer and the big bourgeoisie? Good luck, 
my friend.
