Subject: RE: MI5 monitored Ewan MacColl
What the communists did in the Spanish Civil War is pretty well documented by now, and I am sure wqe are all pretty familiar with what happened there. Maybe if they should have stuck to fighting Franco? I have no quarrel with what the rank and file communist heroes did, in Spain or the second world war, or on the streets of the East End. My contempt is for their leaders (primarily Stalin), and his unrepentant running dogs like MacColl.
