24579Re: Comment on the dispute in the DSP leadership
- Dec 22, 2005Doug Jordan's comments are cookie-cutter stuff, repeating the same old
stuff that has been written about the DSP over and over and over again
(You would think that the DSP would have listened by now, wouldn't
you? :) )
One comment should be made, however.
Regarding the Socialist Alliance, Jordan writes:
> A far more open process may well have achieved more and attractedmore support. This could have included calling a conference in which
its potential members could have discussed the program and structure of
the proposed new party. Such an approach would run the risk of escaping
the rigid control of the DSP and I suspect that may have been the
reason why such an approach was not adopted. Such an approach is also
less certain of achieving anything and this may also have been a factor.
>In fact, such an approach would have *absolutely guaranteed* that
nothing would have happened.
As a result, such an approach *couldn't* be taken, even though it would
have been a good idea in theory.
