- If Respect were active near me and I considered them the most effective proponent of the politics I espouse, I would be in Respect. I’m not particularly tribal. The fact they do not even exist as a branch remotely anywhere near me makes this rather academic. [Manzil]
Tony Collins favorite member of the Socialist Party explains why he is a member of the Socialist Party and not of Respect: the latter don’t have a branch close enough. I wonder what members of Manzil’s Socialist Party branch will make of his explanations for why people should join the SP rather than Respect. I suspect many will not think he is their best recruiting sergeant.
Given Manzil’s inciting flame wars with each and every member of the SP that tries to crowbar a comment onto that blog, to defend their party against Tony Collins, Andy Newman and former SP member Phil Burton-Cartledge (in reality, little more than a spy for an advocate for convicted pedophiles, John Chamberlain), I suspect some of Manzil’s comrades may cast a very wary eye on this dude.
