Just got a comment left on one of my blog posts of many months ago, it was a wide ranging piece that pulled many arguments together that, for reasons I don’t understand, seems to have been accessed many times a few hours ago. My guess is that Chris Bambery is coming under scrutiny by some people on the left, including his associates in Counterfire and elsewhere. I don’t fancy his chances of lasting long in the socialist movement. Anyway, this comment was left by someone calling himself ‘Vincent Doherty’. Don’t recognise the name. I googled it and it didn’t turn up anything I can use. What Vincent wrote is meaningless. I have no idea what his point is. If he wants to explain what he meant, then I am up for a debate with him or anyone else for that matter. If anyone is interested, I am going to post Vincent’s comment here, one that I can make neither heads nor tails of. My guess is that Vincent is probably a member of Bambery’s International Socialist Group, but he could be almost anyone associated with a variety of organisations mentioned in my article, every word of which is true, by the way, verifiable, every word of which I would swear to under oath in a court of law.
- This is absolutely extraordinary. I don’t think I have ever seen vitriol like it in almost 40 years in and around the revolutionary socialist movement. Unbelievable?
