    Interesting to see the ‘advanced detachment of the working class’ considering a stand over Lewisham Homes. It would be more understandable if it was in defence of a top-rate service, but sadly our service users haven’t been getting such a good deal (Kate) over the past few years. Let’s hope Lewisham Homes can turn things around. That would be good for both the staff and our residents.

    Well as you know Nigel I’m always [cough] sympathetic to the arguments that Trotskyists come up with… It must only be a matter of days before the objective conditions are ripe for a socialist revolution don’t cha think?

    Anarchic management, Trotskyite trade unions. I offerred to step-in with a good purge a few years ago, but the then Exec Director declined my kind offer! Are we ready for the summer block-buster: ” Andrew Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (RSL)” ?
