About this Event

Session 3

Despite 21 years of devolution, the Tory Government’s handling of Brexit and Covid 19 has confirmed that the UK is one of the most centralised states in the world. But now it seems everyone is in favour of constitutional change – Tories, Labour, Lib Dems and of course, nationalists.

We should remember that constitutions are not neutral; they are devised to deliver for those in power, and in our society that is supporters of global capitalism. Keeping our markets open to international business through neo-liberal policies is imbedded in our legislation, in trade deals including that recently struck with the EU and could be enshrined in any future written constitution.

Claim the Future is hosting three sessions under the title Nations & Regions: Radicalising the British State. These sessions will bring together politicians, academics and campaigners from Scotland, Wales and Regions of England to identify the key demands for radical constitutional change that can bring power to the people.

Speakers:

Chair - Beth Winter MP

Mick Antoniw Member of the Welsh Senedd

Pauline Bryan Red Paper Collective

John McDonnell MP
