This is believed to be a cowardly insurance policy against any members of the SWP being arrested if the police take a hard line. A particularly odious policy of the SWP is its pretentious ‘anti-racism’. Leon Trotsky was a notorious racist, and it is only the Marxist-Leninist movement that truly opposes racism.
As Trotskyites are predominately ‘white’, their natural racial prejudices and misconceptions are aimed at what they believe to be the ‘fascist’ problem, unaware that what they themselves represent is a very virulent form of left-fascism, racism and discrimination. When Trotskyites appear to attack rightwing fascism, it is not a demonstration of true anti-racism on their part, but is rather a battle between Trotskyite left-fascism and Hitlerite right-fascism.
