Party Discussion Site Now Available
- 2016 Aug 29

The CPA (M-L) maintains a discussion site for the printing of articles that are relevant to the work of the Party, but not necessarily reflective of a considered Party viewpoint, and for the raising of questions of the Party by members and supporters.

This is a moderated website and not a site for endless and pointless posts.

Members and supporters are asked to read the “How to use this website” post through a link on the top left hand side of the discussion site’s home page.
