SIR'-What is wanted in the
trade unions is not an antiCommunist bloc but active interest in their union by all trade unionists.
Anti-Communists who are elected to trade union office should be so elected not because they are antiCommunist but because they love and seek justice for their fellowworkers.
Communists who are elected to such posts are not supported only by other Communists, but also by many anti-Communists, who see the good work that they are doing and do not appreciate that this good work continues only for so long as it is not detrimental to the Communist line. If non-Communists were as faithful to their ideals as are Communists, the problem would not exist in view of the small number of Communists.
It is time the average Britisher woke up and realised where his apathy is leading him and took some trouble to he an active member of his union. Communist domination of trade unions can he avoided only by all other trade unionists playing their full part in the activities of their unions; there are no short cuts or easy answers.
