The really fatal flaw here is this: the SWP press is nearly forty years old. It is expensive to run and maintain, and increasingly uncompetitive. Not using it reduces the cost of publishing our material. Socialist Review, for instance, has now moved to full colour throughout on the basis of outsourced printing.
Who'd have thought it, using an external private sector supplier for specialist services can result in delivering a better quality service at a lower cost.
Will the SWP be supporting this proposal across the public sector, come the revolution?
