Ballot Paper Names

That's it , comrades , we have now had our nomination to stand in the Livingston election accepted . Brian Gardner will be the socialist candidate , the only socialist , the only real socialist , on the 29th of September .

Unfortunately , the authorities felt that name The Socialist Party on the ballot paper may possibly have led some of the electorate to confuse us with the Scottish Socialist Party . So ,alas , we will be standing as the Socialist Party of Great Britain , which will be the name on the ballot paper . Fortunately , however , our case for socialism can never be confused with the hodgepodge of promises to reform capitalism into some sort of humane state - controlled society that is the policy of the SSP .
