    A devastating dissection.

    To think they talk of George Soros funding political activists.

    That’s both revealing and disturbing. The old RCP and their magazine Living Marxism (or Dead Leninism, as we used to call it) seemed to make a point of saying the opposite to the rest of the Left. It looks as if some of them have put earning a living before principles. But, then, there have always been Trotskyists who have accepted money from dubious sources, such as the WRP accepting money from Colonel Gaddafty in the 1980s.

    Some of the things they now defend (but are they really still Trotskyists?] are the same as us: secularism, opposition to no-platforming and to multiculturalism and its offspring identity politics. And some of their writers have produced some good stuff such as Kenon Malik’s writings exposing the unscientific concept of race and James Heartfield’s book showing that the second world war was just as much an imperialist war as the first.

    Do we check and trawl through all our donation sources, out of interest?

    Yes, we are obliged to as a registered political party and would have to refuse any donations from abroad.

    So we can’t take Bill Gates or George Soros money….that is a shame…but what if they established a British-based foundation to stream their cash through?

    Just to widen the discussion – the organisations funding Tommy Robinson.
