I was hoping to join the TA at home before I went to University, and then transfer to a unit down south. As it is, I'm just waiting for September as joining a regiment for such a short time isn't really worthwhile for anyone involved. It's occurred to me that I might have difficulty with a personal issue. I'm a member of a political party (none of your business which one, but nothing fringe) and I'm currently interning with them in the run-up to the election. I'd like to continue being active within the party when I move. What are the rules on this in the TA/Army? Is Political party membership allowed? Is party activity allowed?
