Socialist Alliance

With the general election just a few months away, the Socialist Party core leadership of Peter Taaffe and Lynn Walsh has decided upon a course of brinkmanship. At the executive meeting of the Socialist Alliance on December 16, representatives of the SP anarchistically demanded the right to unilaterally declare Socialist Alliance candidates. This is a flagrant breach of our election protocol democratically agreed at the September 30 conference at Coventry.
