Event description

Description

Speakers: Andrew Gwynne MP, John Denham and Cllr Jude Wells.

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.

Labour still lags behind the Tories in key English marginals, particularly amongst working class voters and those who feel English more than British. Labour has launched a powerful video aimed at English towns and expanded its plans for an industrial strategy, but the party still rarely mentions England or the English even when its policies are aimed at them. The European elections illustrated the cultural divides that Labour must bridge if it is to win the next general election.

In Boris Johnson we face a populist Prime Minister who has already made it clear he will target English former Labour voters. It’s no use relying on his reputation for lying and incompetence to defeat him: more than ever Labour must to tell a positive story about what prosperous, fair and inclusive 21st century England can look like. That’s why we think Labour should publish an English manifesto, as the party does for Wales and Scotland.

Join us in Stockport on 12 October for our latest Winning England event with Shadow Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Andrew Gwynne MP, our director John Denham and Cllr Jude Wells. We'll discuss:

- How we talk about communities, towns and the nation to show we understand voters’ lives
- Why England matters to key voters, and what we do about it
- If people want to 'take back control’, how can Labour really empower them?
