The politics of England: how can Labour reverse two decades of decline?

After a heavy election defeat, join us in Parliament on 3 March at 4.15pm to discuss how Labour can win back England.

Labour has not won the popular vote in England since 2001. Boris Johnson’s majority was won in constituencies where voters were more likely to see themselves as English than British. The same voters were the core of the vote to Leave the EU and too often feel they have no political power. England is the most centralised nation in Europe and, London aside, England was ignored during the constitutional changes of the last Labour government.

There is no Labour route back to power without winning support amongst English voters.

Join Sam Tarry MP, Justin Madders MP, David Lammy MP, Paula Surridge (University of Bristol) and chair Ros Wynne-Jones, to discuss whether a winning formula for Labour will include:

  • democratic decentralisation within England,
  • a willingness to speak to and about England as a nation,
  • and practical steps to encourage the progressive, inclusive English identity that is already developing.

Please register through Eventbrite. We look forward to seeing you there.
