Socialist Alliance Liaison Committee

07 Dec 2000

Turnout at the December 2 meeting of the Socialist Alliance Liaison Committee was somewhat low. Barely 50 comrades were present, and that included not a few non-voting visitors. Birmingham had the honour of hosting the event. Nevertheless all significant nationally based left groups sent delegates, along with a wide range of the most important local and regional Socialist Alliances. Obviously there was an overlap. Many Socialist Alliances were represented by comrades from the organised left, above all the Socialist Workers Party, which is visibly, though still subtly, flexing its hegemonic muscles.

Meanwhile the Socialist Party won another seat in a council by-election in Lewisham, south London.
