Given recent events in the SWP UK, John Riddell has just produced an apposite commentary entitled
'Party democracy in Lenin's Comintern - and now'

He starts his article by asking:
'How did Communist parties handle issues of internal discipline and democracy in Lenin's time? An 
intense discussion now under way within the British Socialist Workers' Party (SWP) raises issues 
related to the nature of internal democracy in the Communist International (Comintern) during 
1919–23, the period of its first four congresses.'
