Breaking News - SWP Sack John Rees

It must be true, its's on Socialist Unity.

And Harry's Place.

Plus, Voltaire's Priest sees the serious side of it here

I love a good old fashioned palace coup.

Well, well, well.

Did anyone see this coming?

They can delete his beard but they can't delete the Revolution!

Will he now join Continuity Respect, or whatever it's called?

I can't imagine ever wanting to join anything linked to the SWP

Yes, Merseymike, that's quite understandable but what do you make of the sacking of Rees? And will happen to his partner, the fragrant Lindsey German? Come on, man, engage in some speculation, will you?

Was talking to Mr Denham last night - we're of the view that Rees could well join Continuity Respect (Provisional Galloway Committee), as to the best of my recollection Sideshow Ger Francis was one of his associates prior to the latter going feral and being expelled from the SWP.

Remember that back in the heady days when Respect was formed, Gallows said of Rees 'n' German that they were: "the most important 'power couple' on the British left since Nye Bevan and Jenny Lee."

Incidentally, VP, your gag about Rees's goatee seems to have gone all round the blogosphere. I last saw it on Harry's Place. You should claim royalties.

What will happen to the Gang of Four?

Ex-IMGer, Chris Bambery, will hook up with Andrew Coates in the Tendence Coatsey.

Lindsay German gets a gig as restaurant critic for the Weekly Worker.

Chris Nineham rejoins his old band, the June Brides, and will be playing at a community centre near you as part of the C86 Reunion RoadShow.

And John Rees? Mark Steel's personal fluffer, of course.
