Refreshingly the WW’s Mark Fischer, not surprisingly for someone trying to recreate the Communist Party of Great Britain in the year 2003, has a sense of humour:
The fiasco is not without its funny side, of course. The Sting meets Life of Brian. For instance, we also received an approach from these people. A little later, we got a furious email from a leading AWLer (Alliance for Workers Liberty – HH), demanding to know what ‘our group’ in the Ukraine was doing putting out leaflets attacking their group, the Ukrainian Workers Tendency. They were – of course – the same people.
The article also includes a great typo:
A bizarre collection of organisations on the revolutionary left have been on the receiving end of a petty, but nonetheless politically quite sophisticated, fraud dating back to at least the late 1900s.
Is it called Leninism by any chance?
