The Socialist Party of Great Britain (SPGB) is the second-oldest extant political party in the UK and is regarded as within the impossibilist tradition. It is best known for its advocacy of using the ballot box for revolutionary purposes; opposition to reformism; and its early adoption of the theory of state capitalism to describe the Soviet Union.
