For those following the continuing saga of the SWP
I have no idea how interested my remaining American readers have in the goings on of socialist and communist parties outside of the US (personally, I'd strongly advise having a keen interest, as we are supposed to be internationalists), however, it is worth noting that what has been arguably the largest leftist organization in the UK has been in the throes of turmoil for much of the last year, and given the piss poor way that the party's leadership has handled its crisis, it seems likely to remain in turmoil for a while to come. The latest shoe to drop was the resignation of David Renton. The guy who runs Histomat offers his own counterpoint. Make of it what you will.
