Why SF were rejected

Chris Gaskin thinks he knows:

Let’s have a look at our manifesto, or lack there of, for example. I want to make it clear that I don’t blame the people who drafted it, there is a serious problem within the party with policy formation.

That being said the manifesto was the biggest pile of watery, airy fairy, head in the f*****g clouds, not a notion of what is going on, bullshit that I have ever had the misfortune of reading!!

I can’t help but wonder if he has read any of SF’s previous manifestos.
