The Rotten Tree

The Rotten Tree

Dear Editors.

Re the letter "CPNZ — A Rotten Tree", Salient September 12.

This ex-party member's letter had some justification — if nothing else. I should be more interested in party exposures of administrative incompetence in expelling the Wellington District CPNZ. This course was set by a few old men of its political committees.

Many ordinary members, rather than scab on their mates for their socialist principles stood by the expelled district — which is a right of all understanding members.

As for Comrade Dev? Isn't it now ironical, Dev was kept out from all party branches on the express orders from Comrade Wilcox. My understanding of Marxism-Leninism is my guide to principles.
