Adopting a "Leninist" party-building model is not a prophylactic against 
taking the wrong position on imperialism. Ted Grant's group backed the 
British war against Argentina's attempt to retake the Malvinas. Tony 
Cliff had a fucked up position on the Korean War. And so on. Of course, 
it would be great if some "Leninist" sect ever got large enough to elect 
a parliamentarian who votes for war credits, as Peter Camejo once 
related to me with an ear-to-ear grin.
