While I happen to lean in your direction on the SWP 'boycott' question, I'm
a bit surprised you'd like a party leadership to be able to control its
members actions in that manner.

And in case you've forgotten, the ISO has publicly spoken out against the
SWP leadership - none of whom will be speaking at our conference this year.
A number of oppositionists - both inside and outside of the party - will be.
