The brave women who stood their ground throughout this scandal are an inspiration to us all.
They are the ones who've been exonerated. It is hard to imagine what they have been through but today, with Delta's "resignation", they can be justly proud of their principled stand and for leading the way in fundamentally changing the culture that allowed the likes of Delta to operate unchallenged for so long.
The women's struggle for justice throws up the inescapable question of the role of the SWP's leadership. Throughout the crisis the CC has unanimously backed Delta, smeared opponents, ridden roughshod over democracy and accountability, and steered the party into the worst crisis it has ever seen. They have to go. Any chance of renewal or resetting of the party simply cannot occur while the rest of the current CC remain in place.
To any SWP members who remain we say now is the time to match the women's courage with your own. Call a special conference and pass a "No confidence" vote in the current CC.
