    INVITATION :  Politics in the Pub for January 2017

    PoliticsInThePub

    Dear Member / Supporter - With summer in fine swing and conversation being easy, it's time to have another event to share our connections and our common values. 

    There are a few things taking place this year. 2017. One of the more memorable ones will get sworn in on the 20th of January. (Hint - Orange hair.)

    However, let's not talk about that. No - not at all. It's all been spoken about beforehand and will be spoken about at great length in the future. Oh how it will be spoken about. 

    Instead, let's look at our goal of redefining what progressive politics is going to look like - ask questions, like how we are going to get there and how we are going to work on this over the next 16 years.

    How you, me, us - the Greens and all the other like minded progressive folks are going to keep our eye on the important things.  Soothsayers Political forecasts suggest a dark dark world out there. We need to share the light. We need to plan over goblets glasses of wine and on strong tables built for robust conversation on the subtleties of systemic democratic dialogue and vagaries of institutional change for the coming of 4 years of winter neolibealism.

    For are we not a party, and shall we not party in spirit and not just in name?
