Why We Are Not Contesting This Election (1951)

From the October 1951 issue of the Socialist Standard

At the request of a number of branches, a poll of the Party was taken on the question as to whether we should put forward candidates at this General Election. The result was a majority vote against participation. The majority voted against participation for a variety of reasons. The question of electoral activity will be discussed at a forthcoming special party meeting.

If only the SPGB were as sensible in 2017.
