The general election in May proved to be a watershed moment for the Labour party, the surge in Scotland left Labour with a single seat and we lost many Tory facing marginals. One of the biggest issues arising from the election was the extent to which traditional Labour voters turned to UKIP.
On Saturday 22nd of August the Young Fabians will be holding an action day in Manchester led by YF member, Rayhan Haque and YF, Vice-Chair Martin Edobor.
We will be meeting initially at 1 pm outside Ziferblat. The day will involve going out into central Manchester and speaking directly to the public about the general election and UKIP, as we host a Young Fabian stall in the city center. Those that attend will undergo a briefing and provided with a question pack.
We will then return to Ziferblat at 4 pm for a round-table discussion chaired by Rayhan Haque, looking at how we tackle the question of UKIP.
The Greater Manchester Fabians Society will also be holding a boat party the day before on the evening of 21st August, organised by the Chair of the Young Fabians & Chair of GMSF to find out more information please click here
