On the day the British Parliament starts the ratification process of the European Reform (aka) Lisbon Treaty, I want the Labour Party to enable my membership to include individual membership of the Party of European Socialists (PES)
Can you think of a better way of enabling better understanding of, involvement in and commitment to Britain's membership of the European Union?
I proposed this at the Fabian Conference morning session on Saturday on European Britain. I don't claim authorship of this idea. John Palmer, former European Editor of the Guardian and latterly policy director of the European Policy Centre wrote about it in Chartist nearly two years ago. However, as pressure intensifies inside the British Labour Party to rebuild its membership base, and conventional means of reducing Euro-scepticism appear counter-productive, perhaps it is an idea whose time has come.
In the meantime you can become a PES activist.
