This House Believes The Labour Party Has Turned Its Back On The Working Class

The Labour Party’s electoral hopes have long depended on the fragile alliance of so-called ‘Hampstead and Hull’.  As the Party becomes more dominated by the London elite, and notions of class and identity change, is this founding coalition obsolete?

  • Darren McGarvey  :  Musician and social commentator, who performs under the stage name Loki.  He received an Orwell Prize for his 2018 book Poverty Safari
  • Yvette Williams MBE  :  Co-founder and coordinator of Justice4Grenfell.  She is a founding member of Operation Black Vote

Speakers in Opposition:

  • Alison McGovern MP  :  Labour MP for Wirral South.  She serves as Chair of Progress, which represents the right of the Labour Party
  • Prof. Cecile Wright  :  Academic and Labour activist, currently serving as Vice-Chair of Momentum
