The ISO comrades lost quite a bit of credibility on the sexism question 
after Paul Le Blanc decided to go speak at the British SWP conference, a 
measure that Callinicos and company hopes will help bail them out. 
What's worse? Writing a tasteless article or asking a 19 year old woman 
about her drinking habits when she is pressing charges of rape against a 
top leader of her party?
