Chartist is a bi-monthly democratic socialist magazine which has been published in Britain since the 1970s. The magazine is based in London.

History and profile[edit]

The magazine's editorial policy is firmly aligned with what was once termed the soft left of the Labour Party,[1] supporting such causes as the Grassroots Alliance slate in Labour National Executive Committee elections and the Save The Labour Party initiative. Its readership and editorial board is not confined, however, to the Labour Party or any one of its factions as it seeks to invite debate with the broader left that includes greens and various independence movements. It has however offered support to Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour party. Chartist defines its policy as being "to promote debate amongst people active in radical politics about the contemporary relevance of democratic socialism across the spectrum of politics, economics, science, philosophy, art, interpersonal relations – in short, the whole realm of social life".

The current editor is Mike Davis. The magazine's production editor and treasurer is Peter Kenyon, and its web editor is Andy Morton. Other members of the Editorial Board include Duncan Bowie, Peter Chalk, David Floyd, Don Flynn, Roger Gillham, Frank Lee, Dave Lister, Mary Southcott, James Grayson, Patricia d’Ardenne and Sheila Osmanovic, Robbie Scott, Patrick Mulcahy and Tehmina Kazi.[2]
