The next of The Commune’s London public forums is on the subject of the social role, degeneration and future course of the Labour Party. The meeting takes place from 7pm on Monday 23rd November at the Lucas Arms, Grays Inn Road, near King’s Cross.
With some on the left turning back to Labour as the 2010 general election nears, and others predicting the party will turn ‘left’ in opposition to a David Cameron administration, it is important to understand the underlying characteristics of Labour in British capitalism and challenge the arguments that the workers’ movement should try and ‘reclaim’ it or create a Labour Party mark II.
The discussion will be led off by Chris Ford from The Commune, Andrew Fisher from the LRC and David Bailey, Department of Political Science and International Studies, University of Birmingham, and author of ‘The Transition to ‘New’ Social Democracy: the role of capitalism, representation, and (hampered) contestation’.
