[This talk was presented on January 18, 2013 at the Socialist Alliance 
(Australia) national conference, held in Geelong.]

January 18, 2013 -- Socialist Alliance is currently engaged in a process 
of discussion and clarification with Socialist Alternative, with a view 
to exploring the possibilities of greater cooperation and unity. How 
this will ultimately develop is an open question. But I think it is fair 
to say that on both sides today there is a much greater interest in the 
political positions and approach of the other.

Recently Omar Hassan, a leader of Socialist Alternative, has criticised 
the very concept of a transitional program and our use of it.[1] 
Presumably his views more or less reflect the outlook of his 
organisation as a whole. I'll consider them later.
