UK left-wing political party the SWP is in shambles after mass resignations following the handling of rape allegations.
The alleged rape took place in 2011 by a member of the leadership and although the truth is not known it is the way in which the SWP leadership handled the situation that has caused the crisis.
2012 and 2013 has seen numerous members exit the party including prominent members, some have been expelled and some have resigned due to the poor handling of the situation.
With the exits at senior and grass-root level for the Lib Dems it begs the question, where will all these politically aware people turn to?
