The SPGB have dropped Marx and Engels and the muscular proletarians from their masthead and replaced them with an image of (yawn) "the planet" and "World Socialism" , and seem to be moving toward acceptance of the global warming myth. Environmentalism is proving to be as big a nuisance as reformism. 

For writing that approximates to a Marxian class analysis of what capitalism may, but probably isn't, doing to the natural setting, read the Weakly Worker.

If one can't believe what is written in Socialist Studies one might as well become an Existentialist.

For clarity, the masthead you are talking about is not the SPGB one, but the one at

http://www.socialiststudies.org.uk/

It may be a bad replacement logo (reminiscent of 'One World, One People') but anthropogenic global warming is real, its what environmentalists do about it is where Marxists might disagree.

I hear he's thinking of changing his name to Bob "wrong again" Andrews

Yes, I know. And Socialist Studies is produced by the SPGB. Over on the Local Election Campaign 2017 thread, the sinister "Alan Johnstone" asks, quite reasonably, "What name are we contesting all these elections under?" The Anarcho-Socialist party of Clapham in a nutshell.

I fail to see why a question about Islington Branch takes us off-thread. Members of the branch were prominent in the unpleasantness that led to the eventual reconstitution of the SPGB, publishers of Socialist Studies ( unavailable in all good newsagents ).

What Islington Branch really was is open to conjecture. There are people who happen to enjoy naming names and airing wild allegations. I am not one of them.

If Camden and North West London had remained, do you think membership would have increased, decreased or stayed the same?
