    I see that they have demoted Ruth Coppinger since yesterday, when she was apparently a TD.

    I”m a bit baffled by her reference to unspecified “sectarian divisions”. Also to Richard Boyd Barrett saying that taking a position on abortion would be “too divisive” – I find that a little difficult to believe and, without meaning any disrespect to Anne, the Weekly Worker isn’t exactly devoted to truth and accuracy when it comes to that sort of detail.

      Anne has written on abortion on Ireland a few times before and is usually fairly good at her research so I think it is probably accurate.

      I wouldn’t have used the term “sectarian” myself but there clearly are tensions between the SP and SWP within the ULA which is contributing to the problems we non-aligned see to some degree.
