    I might by wrong but the lady holding the anti-Galloway placard in the East London Lines article looks like a longstanding member of the AWL who I remember from back in the day.

    As I’m not 100% sure I won’t give out her name in case it’s not her.

    A quote from the article is quite illuminating, Nick Long, from the Transform Party said –

    “I’ve been active in Lewisham politics for many years. My differences with the Workers Party are over traffic calming, they are not in favour of ULEZ [Ultra Low Emission Zones] and they want to increase traffic speeds to 30mph.”

    So that’s what “left wing” politics has descended to, not the nature of the welfare state, or what industries to nationalise, or the old chestnuts they used to trot out, it’s speed limits!

    The Transform Party seem rather a wishy-washy lot:

    It is easy to see how they and the WPB would be incompatible.

    I always wondered what happened to Left Unity.

    The result of yesterday’s election for mayor of Lewisham can be found here:

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayor_of_Lewisham

    Hamilton got 5.7 percent of the vote, coming 5th behind the usual suspects (Labour, Green, Liberals, Tories). This is not a bad score for a minor party but will mostly be a personal vote for him as (as can be seen) someone who has stood for mayor 4 times before and getting the same percentage. It can’t really be regarded as a vote for the Workers Party of Britain’s programme but since the Labour share of the vote went down by 6.5 percent he may well have taken some voters from Labour.

    This is rather wild. The WPB really are channeling the spirit of the old CPGB of Harry Pollute and Palme Duff:
