Remembering the 1992 Election: 20 Years On
Tuesday, May 15, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (BST)
It is twenty years since Britain went to the polls in the closely-fought 1992 election. Famous for the Sheffield Rally, the ‘tax bombshell’, the War of Jennifer’s Ear and John Major’s soapbox, that election was a formative one for many of today’s politicians – the first in which Ed Miliband and George Osborne could vote, one which saw many future Labour Cabinet minister first elected and one where David Cameron was working on the Conservative campaign.
The Labour History Group is hosting an evening of discussion to reflect on the events of 1992, with speakers who were closely involved at the time. Whether you remember the election or not, all are welcome to attend and contribute!
Rt Hon Shaun Woodward MP - former Labour Cabinet Minister, Director of Communications for the Conservative Party in 1992
