Discussing the CPGB 1957 Congress at Socialist Unity

I just thought I’d do a quick plug to say that Andy Newman at Socialist Unity has posted a discussion of my blogpost on the CPGB’s 1957 ‘Special’ Congress and its relevance to the current crisis in the SWP. On the outcome of the 1957 Congress and the exodus that followed, Andy has written:

A Pyrrhic victory for the bureaucratic leadership, who rejoiced in their own self-belief that they were the personification of socialism itself, but were sowing the seeds of future crises and disillusionment.

I’ll be very interested to see the discussions.

Meanwhile, I’ll be reading Rajani Palme Dutt’s papers at the British Library, just to keep on a similar theme.
