I think we’ve all been super busy in the past few months and it’s no one’s fault that we haven’t got anywhere recently. Not only that, but the current political debates going on in both Britain and the US are awful, and they’re putting people off politics in droves. But, as we know all too well, this is a crucial time for Something New to be active. The same thing happened after the 2015 election when we all got a bit peeved off at the progressive forces having effectively lost.
Essentially, we need to try and work through whatever we’re thinking and whatever’s putting us off contributing to the party in order to try and formulate some ideas about Brexit and about Britain in 2016 that fit our image. Essentially, we should try to revive the party, get things kicking around, get a debate going, and become an active social media presence again.
If you want some thoughts about getting things going, let’s continue to address non-Brexit topics that we have already adopted well thought out policies on. Let’s talk about Brexit, about how we should Brexit, and about what we want from it. Let’s talk about issues like Syria, and let’s create a clear picture about Russia’s involvement and how to take steps to actually resolving, rather than sustaining, the migrant crisis. These are big topics but it only takes 30-60 minutes research to have a much clearer image about them before coming up with policy ideas.
Thoughts are more than welcome, @everyone.
