Political Ideas  


Meeting Times

First Tuesday in each month 1.30 - 3.30


The Chesterfield Ale House, West Bars.


We all pepper our conversations with words like Liberty and Human Rights, Left and Right but do we fully understand what they all mean and their implications on our lives?


This is not a Politics group - although we may all come with decided political standpoints we do our best to avoid degenerating into party political posturing.


We are working our way through a book which acts as a framework and a source of basic information. Each session is lead with a talk by a different member each month, but group members hopefully study a bit further and then share knowledge/ opinions with the group in the discussion session.  The book is:  

50 Political Ideas You Really Need to Know -by Ben Dupre.    


Don't worry, it only has 4 pages for each topic. It has five sections: Political Theory; Ideologies; The Machinery of Politics; The Stuff of Politics; All the World's a Stage.    


The next few sessions are:  

Dec. 1st Conservatism

Jan. 5th. Liberalism

Feb.. 2nd.Socialism

March 1st. Communism

April 5th. Social Democracy  


We have vacancies. Contact:  Roger Watts 276161, roger@rwx2.co.uk
