The workers, united, shall never be defeated

For better or worse, trade unions don't get me excited like they did in the days when they were the bearers of my hopes of revolution. When they do impinge on my consciousness nowadays it tends to be in a non-positive light - e.g. as forums for the Socialist Workers Party to posture with their anti-Israel boycott campaign.

This, however, is an exception - about which, accordingly, I expect we will be hearing rather little from the SWP. Of building blocks like this is real peace constructed - may there be many more.

Oh, and by the way, I would have applauded the agreement even in my Trotskyist phase. For all its failings, Militant was always big on workers' unity and emphatic in its rejection of terrorism.
