Event description

Description

The Gladstone Club is pleased to discuss:
The New Politics of the People - with Jack Shenker

Monday 28th October 7pm

What is happening to our politics? After decades of institutional stasis, our politics is in flux. Shock election results, constitutional challenges, new parties, new leaders and new governments fill the airwaves. Most commentators continue to fixate on the personalities and parlour-games at Westminster - the earthquakes and volcanoes on the surface - rather than asking how and why the tectonic plates beneath are shifting so dramatically. To understand the roots of our current chaos, and the fierce struggles over what will emerge from it, a different approach is urgently needed.

Jack Shenker’s new released book: 'Now We Have Your Attention: The New Politics of the People’ is an alternative map of the tumult. Shenker travels deep into the lived experiences of individuals and communities right across the country, from Essex to Newcastle and Kensington to Manchester, from a dank club night in Brighton to a shabby shop-front in Glasgow, to uncover the ways in which the old politics is falling apart, and the spaces in which rival futures are being fought for.
