For the record: the AWL's rule, and as far as I know we are the only group on the left to have it, is that members with minority views can and should express their own views publicly, so long as they make it clear that they are minority views and explain to the best of their ability what the AWL position is.

So, no, we are not at all fearful of members with minority views taking part in public debates.

But if the AWL, as an organisation, is invited to debate an issue, it's not unreasonable for us to want to send a representative of the AWL's position. And not unreasonable for us to say it's a bit off if a group, having declared themselves up for debating Iraq, then refuses to accept our chosen representative.
