Given the comments in another thread, I can’t help but noticing that we have a session on “Smashing sexism” in an event organised by a party, the SWP, whose current leadership covered up for a rapist and who lost about a third of its membership in the ensuing scandal. Not, sadly, that they are the only left org that had/have such issues, but surely none so barefaced in their hypocrisy!

Being held at a university which is imposing viciously punitive pay deductions on staff taking industrial action, bordering on a lockout.

I just realised as well that it’s unfortunate timing, given Pride is on this weekend in London, so a lot of the politically engaged people here will be at that instead today – maybe that’s the SWP deliberately ploughing their own furrow then!
