Response to Name the names


Ron Bellamy's piece is helpful in this regard:

"at the January EC after the 1997 national congress. Mike Hicks was replaced as general secretary with 13 votes against 17."
Voters for Hicks as Gensec therefore accounted for 13 out of 30 (43%).
Members of the EC who left the CPB, I calculate at about 10 or or 33%. I don't recall others but stand open to correction.
Only Pete Ritman was expelled. The others stopped paying party dues, then stopped attending EC meetings and finally severed connections. I recall that Mary was lapsed by her branch.

Barney Crockett
Mike Hicks
Francis Wilcox
Andrew Clark
Mary Rosser
Ron Bellamy
Joan Bellamy
Tish Newland
Paul Corry
Pete Ritman (expelled)

I think Tony Chater, no longer on the EC, had already left the party but can't remember for certain.
