What's the Spartacist League up to these days?

Hate Ashbury
The last time I was in Books Upstairs I noticed that they had a new set of [i
Spartacist for sale. I looked more closely, and saw it was dated this time last year. That's the last issue on their website as well . . . Which makes me wonder, is the Spartacist League, which has contributed so much to the gaiety of nations, on its last legs?

Love 'em. or hate 'em, the Sparts and their Workers Hammer are entertaining when they intervene to speak at meetings. They dress smartly too.

I once sent off for the entire back catalogue of their "hate Trotskyism, Hate the spartacist league" magazines, these were brilliant, with loads of articles from other lefty rags attacking the sparts and their replies.
The sparts carryied on calling me for over a year afterwards, eventually coming round to recruit/ berate me- they brought beer. which I drank, then I threw them out.

nice bit from the Hammer on the BA strikes:

With an election for Unite general secretary in the offing, the supposed “left” candidate is Jerry Hicks, formerly union convenor at Rolls Royce, who outdid Unite bureaucrats Simpson and Woodley in his support for the protectionist strikes for “British jobs for British workers” last year. Hicks stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the Socialist Party [affiliated with Socialist Alternative in the U.S.], which was part of the leadership of the anti-foreigner strikes at Lindsey oil refinery. The Lindsey strike launched a crusade that saw foreign workers removed from a site in Wales and being denied jobs at many other building sites in a racist climate that has been a gift to the fascist BNP.

more pseudo controversialist "lefties" a bit like the AWL, trying so hard to be ultra left wing and purist that they've popped right round to the other side.

Yeah of course because these strikes are just like 20s South africa all over again. :mad: No wonder the left is in such a fucking state.

I don't think we can really blame the sparts for that, the only people aware of their existence is other lefites
... and others that happen to read Urban75.

Never heard of them before, but all I could think of was "I'm Spartacus" too.
