Jan Józef Lipski – The marathon congress of the Polish Socialist Party (169/215)

We’ve just held the great Congress of the Polish Socialist Party, a great marathon which began at 11 o’clock on one day and ended at nine o’clock the following day without an overnight break, just brief stops for meals and for cigarettes. We have a statute, a programme which, unfortunately, is still incomplete; the current programme is still unfinished. The General Council was authorised by the Congress to continue its work in this area so we’ll see what this party is capable of. But I have to say that even if this party proves to be too weak to make much impact on life in Poland for some time, I still see that I’ve chosen the right place for myself, because where else should someone be who for 40-odd years has regarded himself as a socialist? Where else but here?
