The SPGB believe in the conquest of Parliament . . . using the vote, etc. The organizers of the AB have always been firm but polite when turning down the SPGB's request for a stall, and that's fair enough in my opinion. To paraphrase the words of the old pop classic, 'It's their Party and they'll invite who they want to . . . ". . . meanwhile the SPGB stall was left outside. This doesn't make sense as inside you had a Marxist humanist stall- so why exclude the SPGB? I do find it odd what is included and excluded at the bookfair. Anyway, it was still a great bookfair and I'm glad I went.
Of course every year a few 'suspect' stalls slip through the net in contravention of the AB door policy, but that's just the way it is. No need to get hot and bothered about it.
