A working class party is something to be

Sun 22.09.19
3pm – 4:30pm

The Labour Party was created to provide working class people with representation in parliament. Yet, in recent years it's become common place to hear critics talk about Labour losing its 'working class base.' This session will examine Labour’s relationship to different working class communities across the UK and will draw conclusions about the political, cultural and organisational changes the Labour Party needs to make to better serve all working class people, regardless of race, gender, nationality or region.
