Event description

s it comes to look increasingly like hard Brexit for Britain, what is the future for progressive politics? One suggestion has been for an electoral alliance on the Left bringing together the Greens, Labour and the SNP. Not everyone is convinced – including Jeremy Corbyn – but the proposal has sparked debate and discussion across progressive parties.

Birkbeck Politics hosts an evening of discussion with a cross-party panel to discuss what such an alliance would look like, how it would work and whether it is the quickest way back to power for the left or a dangerous dream?

Our panel includes Labour MP and Birkbeck alumnus Lisa Nandy and Greens MP Caroline Lucas, both of whom have recently co-edited a book with Chris Bowers, The Alternative: Towards a New Progressive Politics. We will also be joined by Jon Cruddas, Labour MP for Dahgenham and Rainham.
