: What do you do when the capitalists are the hope of the workers?
Argue against them, and try and show where we think their interests better lie.

:How do you answer your union boss, when he blatantly sides with anyone who is against the boss, no matter how vile?

We fight him, we argue against him, and get shot of him. Unlike the SWP the SPGB won't side with Nationalists, won't side with reformists, will not latch onto whatever campiagn is going, but rather, sticks by its own principles,a nd stands up for them.

: In short, when do you realize that one should support what is right, rather than what is ideologically correct? Good old Jesus the Magic Stick Man said something similar. Or are the Sadduccees all that?

Exactly, and this is the point I was raising with Noel- how far do his principles go? In your post on Kosova you accuse the left of supporting Serbia, I know I don't, but I still oppose the war, as I oppose all capitalist wars, and do so on a matter of principle, not of shifting in the wind, like the SWP's 'Victory to Saddam T-Shirts'.
