We have been asked for clarification on a particular point.

John McDonnell MP spoke to an SCLV meeting in January, about the importance of socialists supporting the Labour Party. He was not present for the discussion of the draft demands and had no involvement in drafting them.

On our website John’s signature is attached to the general statement of principles, which he signed up to, and not to the list of specific demands, which he did not sign up to.

The demands were a matter of debate and discussion in the campaign and the movement; the general statement was the only thing people signed up to.
