‘Stuart Inman The notion that LU is planning an electoral front with the SWP is complete bullshit and you know it. So many members of LU are ex-SWP and would refuse such an idea and so many members have always regarded SWP as toxic, even before the scandals that tore it apart, that an electoral pact with the SWP would destroy LU. So why are you publishing such misleading headlines?’
You are wrong Stuart – one of the options to be discussed on September 20th by the LU Steering Committee is to join TUSC – one oF whose components is the SWP. The steering committee will then report to the LU policy conference on November 15th where a decision on electoral strategy will be made. If you think ‘an electoral pact with the SWP would destroy LU’ you’d better tell the steering committee pronto.
Class War has two election candidates who are also LU members. They will attend the conference on November 15th and Class War will be outside also urging LU comrades to ditch thoughts of allying with the toxic brand of the SWP and join with us.
