Harrow Fabians Host YF
Harrow Fabians hosted Executive members, James Hallwood and Adebusuyi Adeyemi, for a talk on ‘public sector patriotism and the NHS’.
The local Fabian groups are the backbone of the national Fabian Society and James and Ade received a warm welcome, challenging questions and some excellent insights from the local members.
It was particularly welcome to see Harrow Fabian co-chairs John and June Solomon at the event. John and June have been married for 55 years and first met at a Fabian tea dance in the 1960s. In his 90s, John still has very strong opinions on the Labour Party and James and Ade enjoyed hearing wise words from a man who has spent much of his life in the Fabian Society.
The issue of patriotism and One Nation is being addressed by our Ideas Series. It’s something that Labour is increasingly looking at reclaiming from the Right so it was a pleasure for James and Ade to get to explore the issues surrounding the topic with local members.
