He hasn't said anything independent of the CC, which he's still on, afaik. His less than savory role in much of the SWP's history is enough for me to assume that his head is buried in the sand (or some fouler place) like the others.

I was prepared to forgive and forget when I learned he was coming to Socialism this past year. But his petty "I'm right and you're wrong" attitude in the Egypt panel and another personal interaction I observed between him and another comrade in which he was really arrogant and even more petty--he insisted someone give him credit for finding an Obama quote (in fairness, that may have been tongue in cheek, but it didn't seem like it and nobody laughed)--reassured me that my judgment from 2000 that he was a total shitbag may not have been solely due to bitterness.
