      I was not trying to be cute (although many have said I am indeed
      rather cute), but why should I know about this campaign within the
      ALP? It's the first time you've reported on it here that I can
      remember. And I have looked in vain for evidence of it on your
      website, or much else about your struggles within the ALP to build a
      genuine socialist pole (as opposed to every twist and turn of your
      ongoing debates with the DSP).

      I think it is terrific that such a struggle is taking place. But why
      keep it so well hidden? Go public! Keep us in the loop. Tell us about
      this campaign's successes on the list more often. Write an article or
      letter about it for Green Left Weekly. Tell us when actions or forums
      are being organised and we'll help publicise them. We are happy to
      cooperate with those who prepared to build a genuine uncompromising
      fighting left in the ALP.

      Norm
