Labour History Research Unit event will ask whether it’s time to end tribal politics
Neal Lawson, the Chair of the progressive campaigning group Compass, will deliver the latest talk in the “New Political Landscape” series, organised by the Labour History Research Unit at Anglia Ruskin University.
Lawson’s free public talk “Does Labour and the wider left need a progressive alliance?” will take place at Anglia Ruskin’s Cambridge campus on Thursday 9 March (5.45pm).
The assumptions on which British policy making has been made for a generation are being challenged by the UK’s decision to leave the European Union and the Trump presidency in the US. The “New Political Landscape” series of talks and discussions seeks to examine the new political order as it comes into being.
Lawson has been one of the key figures over the last decade in trying to stimulate new thinking on the left. He writes regularly for The Guardian and is a regular contributor to current affairs programmes such as Newsnight.
