On December 2019, the Labour Party endured its worst election night defeat since 1935. And while our Heartlands are diverse, there are common causes that underlies the rejection of our Party from Durham to Dundee. But what are they exactly?
The Fabians helped to create the Party in 1900, although is it responsible for its demise? It is clear that Labour’s path to victory lies in reuniting all our Heartlands, from the communities that voted to leave in the North and Midlands, to those in Scotland who abandoned Labour in 2015 and our growing young, diverse strongholds in cities.
Join us on Wednesday 27th January at 19:00 for this collaborative event by the Economy & Finance Network and the regional networks as we bring together a top panel of political heavyweights to discuss the economic challenges facing the Heartlands and what can Labour do to support them.
