Ex-Labour politician will discuss Brexit and future of politics at latest LHRU event
Former Home Secretary Charles Clarke will discuss Brexit and its effect on British politics during a free public event at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) in Cambridge on Monday, 4 November.
The talk, hosted by ARU’s Labour History Research Unit, will see the former Labour politician discuss the current Brexit situation and its implications for the shape and future of modern politics.
Clarke was MP for Norwich South from 1997 until 2010 and became Education Secretary under Prime Minister Tony Blair, before succeeding David Blunkett as Home Secretary in 2004.
Since leaving Parliament he has emerged as an important commentator on current affairs and has edited the book The Too Difficult Box: The Big Issues that Politicians Can't Crack (2014).
