Next steps for Labour
May 17, 2010 4 Comments
This evening I attended the Progressive London public meeting, entitled ‘Next Steps for Labour’. This was chaired by Joy Johnson, and the speakers were Billy Hayes (Communication Workers Union), Mehdi Hassan (New Statesman), Chris McLaughlin (Tribune), Lisa Nandy MP, Emily Thornberry MP, and Ken Livingstone.
Held at Congress House, this very well attended meeting covered a number of topics, including the Labour leadership, internal party democracy, the sell-out by the Liberal Democrats, the importance of trade unions to the Labour movement, and grassroots campaigning.
