The question has been posed again: why doesn’t the Socialist Party dissolve and join Labour? That question could be posed to the Co-Op Party, and to the other 17 organisations currently part of the Labour Party, including the neo-liberal right wing Progress. The Socialist Party carries the banner for a clear socialist alternative to capitalism for which we have campaigned for decades and will continue to do so, outside or inside the Labour Party. There is no reason at all why SP members should not be part of Labour. The question is: which Labour Party? The one of the 600,000 Corbyn supporters, or the party machine which is still controlled by McNicol and the rest of the Blairites, including 170 crypto-Tory/Libdems in the PLP. Until that question is resolved turmoil and treachery will dominate JC’s tenure as leader.
