SSP “on the precipice”

Tommy Sheridan spoke to the Daily Record on 7 August. Sheridan told the paper that he might stand in the election for convenor, due in October. If he wins that election he plans to quit and demand a re-run based on one-member, one vote postal ballot, in order to strengthen his position.

“There is no way I could be convenor of a party with its apparatus controlled by those who have tried to politically undermine me. I think the SSP stand on the precipice of either a great new beginning or virtual oblivion.”

“...When a socialist takes on one of hte most ruthless anti-union and anti-socialist empires in the world and wins, you would expect socialists to rejoice.

“The fact that some so-called socialists have strained their voices in condemnation of me, rather than in jubilation, exposes the level of personal hatred that has infected these people.

“I believe there has been a statement issued by three MSPs that they will not work with me. Not speaking to them ever again will not keep me up at night.”
