On Saturday I attended a North West Meeting of the Christian Socialist
Movement, which as part of a review that the organisation is doing is
holding a number of meetings round the regions to let people know who they
are, and what they are aiming to do.
The event had Secretary of state for Communities Hazel Blears as guest
speaker who was in fine form and after an opening statement answered a range
of questions including foundation trusts for hospitals, the democratic
deficit and housing.
The event providing an interesting introduction to the work of the CSM, for
