17 Then Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on Saul, he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord—Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.”18 Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again.

Hope not Hate reports:
Long time activists were horrified to see on the protest for Gaza the notorious neo-Nazi thug of Redwatch, BNP and C18 infamy Tony White.
White was one of the founders of the infamous Redwatch website which targeted innocent individuals including Trade Unionists, antifascists, and school teachers for violence, harassment and intimidation.......
There's no denying that White has been one of the most active and violent Nazis on the British scene.
So it came as some surprise that when confronted by antifascists in Leeds yesterday, White claimed he was now an activist with the SWP and that he is regularly attending SWP meetings.
Perhaps people in the local SWP are unaware of White's past in threatening, intimidating and attacking their members. When pressed further on his claims that he is no longer a violent Nazi, White claimed he is working for Searchlight. A likely story.

Leeds SWP have issued the following statement:
That doesn't actually clear anything up at all.
Their statement neatly skirts around some of the more uncomfortable questions that the comrades have to answer.
One SWP loyalist posted a comment on the HnH website saying:
Erm that wouldn't be a reference to the well documented Comrade Delta affair would it......
