The Right Honourable Martin JohnRees, Baron Rees of Ludlow, FRS (born 23 June 1942) is a professor of astronomy.
Rees was educated at Shrewsbury School and Trinity College, Cambridge, and studied in the United States before taking a professorship at Sussex University.
On 29 March 2005, it was announced that he had been nominated as the next president of the Royal Society, the UK's national academy of science, and he is expected to take over the post in November 2005.
John Rees's contribution to the debate over what kind of party socialists should be building today deals with fundamental issues.(1) It is very welcome, as is the reproduction in ISJ of the two articles from Frontline by Nick McKerrell and myself.
JohnRees is obliged to recognise that "the SSP has of course taken very similar positions to the SWP on both these issues (the war and the BNP) and a host of other critical questions.
Running through the positions of JohnRees and Alex Callinicos is the idea that there is a norm for a revolutionary party, represented by existing far left organisations and in particular the SWP and that all other parties are to be judged by how far they correspond to this norm.
