Event description
Politics affects us all. Join 5x15 with Jess Phillips as we go inside the daily realities of Westminster and life as an MP.

About this event

Join 5x15 for a funny, frank talk with Jess Phillips MP as she discusses her new book: Everything You Really Need to Know About Politics in conversation with Rosie Boycott.

From agonizing decisions on foreign air strikes to making headlines about orgasms, from sitting in on history-making moments at the UN to eating McCain’s potato smiles at a black-tie banquet in China, the life of a politician is never dull.

And it’s also never been more important. But politics is far bigger than Westminster, and in her new book and in this event, Jess Phillips makes the compelling case for why now, more than ever, we all need to be a part of it.

Taking us from the sublime to the ridiculous, Jess gives us a look at the inner workings of politics and the rules governing us all that are often a mystery to an outsider. She covers it all in her own inimitable style giving us the inside track on party politics, changing laws, standing for election, constituency work, the press, social media, and everything in between – this is what is really going on in British politics.

Jess Phillips was first elected as the Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley in 2015 and was elected chair of the Women’s Parliamentary Labour Party in September 2016. Before becoming an MP, she worked with victims of domestic violence, sexual violence and human trafficking, and she continues to speak up on behalf of those who struggle to have their voice heard. Jess lives with her husband and two sons in Birmingham, where she was born and raised. Find her on twitter @jessphillips.
