When the English Labour Network was launched in July 2017 we were one of the few organisations – alongside Labour Coast and Country – that was arguing that Labour had to win in England, outside the major cities, to form a government.
A lot has happened since then. Backed by data from the amazing Centre for Towns, the future of English towns is now at the centre of political debate. The Labour Party has deployed community organisers in key constituencies, and Jeremy Corbyn has launched a powerful video setting our Labour’s message for England outside the cities.
But Labour still lags behind the Tories amongst working class voters. Those who feel English more than they feel British are much less likely to see Labour as their party.
Join David Drew MP, Stroud Council leader Cllr Doina Cornell, Cllr Kate Haigh, the English Labour Network’s John Denham, and Labour Coast and Country’s Hywel Lloyd, in Stroud to answer the following questions:
- How do we appeal to voters with a strong local and national identities?
- What policies come top of voters’ concerns in rural areas and towns like Stroud?
- How do we campaign effectively and show Labour stands for their interests?
This event is held in partnership with Labour Coast and Country. Please register to let us know you’re coming. We look forward to seeing you there.
