Thread Name: BS: INTERNATIONAL BRIGADES Urge MP support
Subject: RE: BS: INTERNATIONAL BRIGADES Urge MP support
Sixteen MP's supporting the motion so far, but no conservatives. I think the motion would have attracted far more support had the communist party not had such a high profile during the entire operation.
This same time period covered Stalin's great purge. Had this knowledge been public at the time, I suspect recruitment to the International Brigade would have tumbled.
