Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Vol 35 no. 17. 19th July 1972




The story in "The Faction Line" (Salient July 12) regarding a party held by the Spartacist League contains an important error.

The police were called to the party not by Bill Logan as the story had it, but by up-tight neighbours. Logan refused to allow the police entry without a warrant.

Nobody was ejected from the party, either by the police or by the unwilling hosts.

Salient's informant made two other errors of detail: his claim that an Asian antique was smashed is without foundation and confirms his incompetence as a reporter, and his suggestion that the uninvited guests were members of the working class rather than members of the lumpen proletariat and the petty-bourgeois bohemian fringe, shows an inadequacy in in his abilities at class analysis.

One of Logan's mates.
