    SPGB EC Minutes, 4th June 2016 remains silent regarding the WSP (I) EC’s observations on the SPGB EC majority’s violation of their own party principle and rule (see our June EC Minutes) by the following move:


    (1) Form ‘A’ i.r.o. Gorachand Paramanik (see also item 2 (e) (vi) Motion 5 of April EC minutes)

    MOTION 16. (McLelland and Skelly) “That the Form ‘A’ be accepted. Carried 6 – 0 – 2

    MSC: That the WSPI EC reiterate its principled position of not submitting to this humiliation inflicted by the SPGB EC move; hence the Party cannot but contest it. And that the WSPI isn’t going to call Mr. Gorachand Paramanik a comrade as because the SPGB EC majority has accepted his Form ‘A’, and until and unless he withdraws his unsubstantiated claims and allegations. Further that the WSPI EC refuses to be bullied, intimidated and dismissed with open contempt by anybody’s lies and falsehood, arrogance and conceit.
