Debating Christian Socialist Movement name change

On Sunday programme on Radio 4

Last week the Christian Socialist Movement took a step towards changing its name.  Its AGM decided overwhelmingly that a new name, Christians on the Left, should be put to the members in a ballot.  The main reason for the change is to look outwards, to reach out to people who would naturally be members but who we have found often get stuck at the name and the word 'socialist'.  And so we can spend our time and resources talking about what we stand for, and campaigning for a society that better reflects Christian Socialist principles.

Yesterday I took part in a discussion on Radio 4's Sunday programme, discussing the name change and the reasons for it.  While it is on iplayer, the link is here and the discussion starts about 14 minutes and 43 seconds in.
