By John Throne. The so-called workers party which has recently had its conference played a major role in derailing the movement of the 1968/1970 period. It was reputed to have had 15 branches in Belfast alone at the time. A not insignificant force. But it destroyed this force and with it the many excellent young people who looked towards it at this time How did it do this. Stalinism. It had the three stages theory. Not even the two stages theory but the three stages theory. First a democratic Northern Ireland. Then a capitalist united Ireland. Then a socialist united Ireland. The first time I heard this was in a house in the Brandywell In Derry. Roy Johnston was "explaining" it. I though it was utter nonsense. And so it was. The workers party if it is to have a future has to examine and break from its Stalinist past. I would be interested in how at its conference it discussed its experience where its membership collapsed in the early 1970's and also where many of its leading members ended up in the capitalist coalitions and also its support for the Stalinist regimes and its virulent hatred of the ideas of Trotsky and the left opposition.
