Do you not think that is possible via reforming laws and also getting people riled up. There is so much indifference around that it is scary, we need to kick people up the arse, revolution is the only way for that. Reforms can work alongside this, change the law to tax the rich, stop inequality etc.No we don't - there are many in the ULA who have a reformist outlook and many within the ULA who have a revolutionary outlook. But I suspect that everyone within the ULA wants to see the ULA become a mass force of opposition to austerity.
Thanks for clearing that up, appreciate that (Im still learning )Again - of course there are different ideologies - the point I was making is that the difference in political ideologies are not the cause of differences within the ULA. Groups and individuals with different ideologies can and have been working together within the ULA
The SWP has always had a consistent approach to the campaigns. Protest at the cuts, put in PQ's, write letters and online activism as well as engaging locally . While some methods may be more effective than others perhaps its just a learning curve also for the SWP, its all learning learening learning. The world has not been in these conditions for a while now and as such old tactics have to be relearnt. The anti austerity campaign can reinforce the ULA and lets not forget mate that we are also pretty united on social policy pretty much too.And there are different approaches and methods - indeed there are as many approaches and methods as there are goups and individuals. Differences of opinion and emphasis can be vigourously debated within the ULA. The difficulties arise when some people (e.g. the SWP) do not have any consistance in their approach and bounce around with the prevailing wind. It makes it more difficult to arrive at a working solution when this happens. Hopefully the recent announcement of an anti-austerity campaign by the ULA will see and newly developed consensus emerging with regards the approach and methods within the ULA.
