The SWP joined Ken's minion’s who, in the end, shamelessly chose themselves and political friends to chair and speak at many plenary sessions and seminars.
Ken will be happy if the event boosts his left credentials, which it should, because the old dog is a canny conventional politician.
The SWP would be happy if it raised their credibility and recruited a few new comrades, which it wont, because they haven’t got a clue. In fact the reverse will happen because that’s what’s been happening for the last 15 years. Really. Yes, it’s the long goodbye.
(The above has nothing to do with the many events around the ‘unofficial’ ESF promoted in these pages by the 'horizontals')
You can read the latest and full report on the ESF, the section of speakers and chairs, in the Workers Weekly .
