We had another get together of the Eltham Traditionalists last week. Once again we had a new face and the conversation was very engaging (so much so that we stayed a bit after closing time until the staff finally reminded us of the hour).
Why meet up? It's an important step along the way in building a political alternative. It helps to establish a personal connection between people who would otherwise be isolated. It also gives a focal point for people to gather around.
It's not the end point. If things go well, numbers and branches will grow and that will then create wider political opportunities. The important thing now is to do the groundwork to allow this to happen.
