To some extent this thread perhaps shows why left unity will be difficult because whenever differences are aired people are accused of lying etc. etc.
I will repeat that we should build unity in action e.g. against the BNP even with those whom we disagreee in quite fundamental principled ways e.g. over denial and suppression of Palestinian rights etc.
Bill's comments may be a touch sharp at times but my point wasn't that but that merely labelling the AWL imperialist is not enough- we need to show how your politics leads to tacit support for imperialism or at best confusion. After Matgamna's latest peiece on Iran this job is of course made considerably easier.
