What Do We Do About the Liberals?

Monday 27th September3pm4:30pm
Old Steine Gardens - Big Tent

The Labour Party and the British left has a long and complex relationship with liberal politics and institutions. But are we generally on the same side or do we want fundamentally different things? Should socialists work with liberals or not?

Should we get involved with liberal media outlets or set up our own left media? Is a progressive alliance the way forward electorally or a recipe for disaster? This session will cover the history and debate our strategy going forward.
