Event description

Description

When the English Labour Network was launched in July 2017 we were one of the few organisations arguing that Labour had to win in England, outside the major cities, to form a government.

A lot has happened since then. Backed by data from the amazing Centre for Towns, the future of English towns is now at the centre of political debate. The Labour Party has deployed community organisers in key constituencies, and Jeremy Corbyn has launched a powerful video setting our Labour’s message for England outside the cities.

But Labour still lags behind the Tories amongst working class voters. Those who feel English more than they feel British are much less likely to see Labour as their party.

Join Gloria De Piero MP, Alex Norris MP, and the English Labour Network’s John Denham in Kirkby-in-Ashfield to answer the following questions:

  • How do we appeal to voters with a strong local and national identities?
  • What policies come top of voters’ concerns in these areas?
  • How do we campaign effectively and show Labour stands for their interests?

The meeting will run 10-11.45am and will be followed by one hour of canvassing nearby with Gloria, Alex and John.

Please register to let us know you’re coming. We look forward to seeing you there.
