Yes, the formal programme to which the SWP are committed is (while highly flawed) infinitely better than that of Galloway and friends. but it seems that a fair few good trade union activists who are siding with Galloway -- presumably not because of his programme, or simply because he's an MP or public figure. The only reason i can think of is disgust at the SWP's typical anti-democratic measures. As in the Socialist Alliance, which arguably led to this whole mess in the first place. shouldn't it be a case of "neither Galloway nor the SWP but principled socialism"?
