Campaign for SLP democracy

Last weekend Socialist Labour’s Vauxhall branch hosted a meeting to campaign for democracy in the SLP. Following his attack on another London branch, Brent, Arthur Scargill had derecognised Vauxhall and effectively expelled all its members. Ian Driver, SLP candidate for Vauxhall, is still formally recognised by the SLP leadership. Nevertheless he continues to defend the Vauxhall branch against the witch hunt and has produced this open letter to SLP members asking for their support
