At the end of last year I wrote an article on the need for new and fresh ideas within the socialist movement and only through discussion of the main issues could this be achieved.
In the previous piece I discussed working life. I am delighted to be a member of a party who supports a £10 an hour minimum wage and an end to zero hour contracts. Not only that but the SSP will openly campaign for this to happen rather than merely pay lip service to it. I am looking forward to campaigning with many comrades in Dundee and throughout Scotland to get our message out to the people of Scotland.
I hope that in future discussions we will consider the option of making Sundays a day of rest for non essential services and look forward to that debate.
Today I would like to discuss education, I have taken this from the position of Scotland being an independent country, however being a devolved institution there are many of these policies which could be introduced. Again I hope this may lead to further debate and alternatives to what I am proposing.
