It had been my intention to write a piece about the Socialist Workers Party and the PCS union tonight after being horrified to see two members of the SWP appointed as Chair (Sue Bond) and member (Marianne Owens) of the unions equality committee.
An action by the PCS National Executive Committee I found hard to swallow given the atrocious "delta affair" and the behaviour of the members of the SWP towards women.
I was going to urge the PCS Left Unity organisation which meets in Manchester to break with SWP formally as many members of the Unison United Left have already done in their union.
Then I was going to call on the PCS NEC to withdraw affiliations and support from the Unite the Resistance and Right to Work campaigns that are nothing more than front organisations for the SWP.
I was going to conclude that no member of PCS should use their positions in the union to support or speak on behalf of in any shape or form for the SWP.
Then I came across this document, which I have reproduced most of for your information which outlines the way the supposedly Socialist Workers Party treated the woman and others around the allegations towards "delta".
Remember this is not the only case of its' kind that has come to light over the last year about rapes and the SWP (the most recent being outlined here ).
Also remember the woman who raised the allegations was just seventeen at the time.
When you have finished, you will never want to hear the words Socialist, Workers and Party ever again.
