Not a description of the eating habits of the kebab-munching post-pub crowd but what passes for comradely debate in the Scottish Socialist Party.

I suppose the euphoria over the recent electoral success had to end sometime and suspect the pitfalls of constructing a political party composed of various sects who each consider themselves the only true representatives of the people are now showing themselves.
