    EDIT: Sorry. That should be ‘S.S. Oct. 2023’, not Nov. My mistake.

    FROM SOCIALIST PARTY HEAD OFFICE:

    The Light has replied by email:

    “Actually tried to reply on your piece, but it doesn’t accept comments.
    “We disagree completely, and don’t have the time to discuss, sorry.
    “Our previous issues set out what we think will work – as small a government as possible.
    “Every socialist/communist solution wants central planning, which is always a failure.
    Peace.”

    There have been some developments since. We proposed a public debate on the matter to which they replied:

    “Do you believe that a government that reflects your principles is the answer?
    For us, any entity with power is to be avoided.
    We’re not naive – to get to total individual responsibility, co-operation and everyone getting to keep what they earn and voluntarily help the community from here (“the government will take care of us” attitude) will take a few generations.
    The problem with giving anyone power over others (even if it’s for good intentions) is that people always abuse power, without exception.
    A debate might be interesting, though it would be better to have 2-4 from each position on a panel.”

    Watch this space to see if anything results.

    Apparently in Stroud some want to ban The Light from being handed out in the streets, including initially the Tory MP.

    They are peddling nonsense but then so are a lot of others, including the Tory and Labour parties. The answer is not to prevent their views being expressed but to publicly expose them as nonsense.

    Indeed. Both the Left & Right are devils when it comes to censoring those they disagree with.
