From Jason Travis, NUT activist and Permanent Revolution member:
I think both the AWL's call and the SWPs are to be welcomed. I wouldn't necessarily look forward to a reply from the SWP but still would press ahead with participating, making sure all votes are democratic, being fraternal in disagreements etc whilst promoting open debate.
Most of all I think we should be for fighting unity to rebuild class struggle- such a fighting unity more than electoral intiaitives can beat back the BNP. However, whilst perhaps more important I don't think electorl intiaitvies are necessarily counterposed to fighting unity on the ground.
