From The Socialist newspaper, 9 July 2014

Reading the revolution

Once you delve a little deeper into socialism, the amount of learning and reading required, as interesting and exciting as that is, can be slightly daunting. As a fairly new member of the Socialist Party, the two London Socialist Party day schools I have attended have been invaluable for me.

The day starts with political discussion - one was on the Transitional Programme for instance. Personally I enjoy this part the most. To discuss some very complicated subjects with knowledgeable people in such an easy-going environment is perfect for a newcomer like me.

The second part is around an organisational issue like the Socialist paper or campaigning in elections. Again, hearing others' ideas and experiences is really helpful. I have come away both times with a better understanding and a few tips I can use myself.

Thirst for more

The day ends with a general question and answer session which could easily go on for longer than the time allocated - one question will always prompt another one!

All in all, I would recommend everyone, newcomers or old hands, to try and attend as many as they can in London or maybe set up their own regional day schools.
