As far as I know, the AWL is unique on the British left in allowing members with a minority viewpoint pretty much unrestricted access to its press, website etc.

The 'distaste' some people feel at the idea of following an agreed 'line' that you disagree with ignores the possibility that you might be wrong. The advantage of collective debate and decision making as opposed to individual feelings/insights is that people modify their position in response to points raised by others that they had not considered. That is more likely to produce a correct line and even if it does not the process allows for it to be corrected.
